Researchers from Michigan State University (East Lansing, MI), Group Health Research Institute (Seattle, WA), and Ohio State University (Columbus, OH) pointed to a substantially greater risk for certain adverse health behaviors among the group that read Fifty Shades, which hyper-sexualized women and might have reaffirmed and created the context for those behaviors.
