LOS ANGELES — Vivid Entertainment VP of Production Marci Hirsch and former adult film star Sinnamon Love are among the contributors who weigh in on Fifty Shades of Grey in the new book from edited by Lori Perkins titled Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades of Grey.

Over the past year, sex toy sales have spiked, the term “mommy porn” has been popularized, and erotic novels have replaced the Bible in some hotels, all as a result of the impact of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy from author E.L. James.

In Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades of Grey, Perkins has collected 50 writers — including romance and erotica authors, BDSM dungeon masters, professors, lawyers, and adult industry professionals — to offer their opinions on the book series.

It includes pieces from:
-    The editor who “discovered” Fifty Shades of Grey back when it was Masters of the Universe, Tish Beaty
-    Marci Hirsch, "the surprisingly romantic" production executive at Vivid Entertainment
-    Writer Jennifer Sanzo, who says Christian isn’t a possessive, bossy control-freak — he’s an old-school Byronic hero
-    Master R of BDSM training chateau La Domaine Esemar, who evaluates Christian Grey’s skill as a Dominant, and offers some professional advice
-    Matrimonial lawyer Sherri Donovan, who examines the legalities of Christian’s BDSM contract, and shares her recommendations for Ana
-    And many more, including: Sylvia Day, Heather Graham, Andrew Shaffer, M.J. Rose and Judith Regan

Perkins is the editorial director of Ravenous Romance, and has been a literary agent for 20 years. She was awarded the Outstanding Achievement as an Author Representative award by Romantic Times magazine as well as the Agent of the Year award from the Romance Writers of America’s NYC chapter. Perkins wrote The Insider's Guide to Getting an Agent (Writers Digest Books), and has edited 20 erotica anthologies and more than 100 erotic novels, as well as published erotica under a pseudonym.

She has taught writing and editing as an adjunct professor at NYU's Center for Publishing for two decades.
