50 Shades of Grey, the world’;s very first Twilight fanfic BDSM classic, is going to debut in theaters very soon, which is why there’;s a virtual reality tour of Christen Grey’;s apartment on the internet. No one ever asked for it, that we know of, aside from the good marketing professionals at Universal Pictures, but it exists, and reckon with it we must.

So, close your eyes. Imagine, for a minute you’;re a bright-eyed ingenue/aspiring journalist. Riding the elevator up to Christian Grey’;s Seattle penthouse, you steel yourself against the surfeit of luxury “masculine” interior styling that awaits, because you know you’;re supposed to be taken in by it. However, as the elevator doors open—at this point in the online tour, you stop and sign the virtual reality consent form—it becomes abundantly clear that you infiltrated the very beating heart of the idealized American bachelor pad. Here’;s what you find there.
