Definition - What does WTRAFSOG mean?

WTRAFSOG is an acronym for what to read after "Fifty Shades of Grey." It's often used online and in social media, and has even come to be categorized as a pseudo-genre of erotic literature. Thanks to its popularity and the hype that surrounded this book, "Fifty Shades" presented an entry into erotica for a lot of people, many of whom were left hunting around for similar fare once they'd completed the trilogy.

Kinkly explains WTRAFSOG

The WTRAFSOG movement stems from the extreme popularity the "Fifty Shades" trilogy enjoyed. While erotica had previously been considered a niche genre, "Fifty Shades" became a best-seller and broke overall book sales records across the board. It became the fastest-selling paperback ever, beating out J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. It sold millions of copies, and is believed to have boosted overall adult fiction sales by as much as 25 percent.

So, while "Fifty Shades of Grey" is hardly the first erotic book out there - and many would argue it isn't the best either - it's probably one of the most widely read works of erotic fiction. It may also be one of the first books to introduce bondage and other elements of kinky sex to a mainstream audience. And that's what left a whole lot of new erotica-loving readers searching the Internet for what to read after "Fifty Shades of Grey."

  • On the nights they went to bed at the same time, Rocco would lie there and watch her go to the closet, watch her choose either silky slips or mannish shirts, like running up sex flags from across the room.
