A Women’s Institute group are giving Fifty Shades of Grey author EL James a run for her money after releasing an 18-rated short story of their own.

Penned by a member of the Somerset writing club, “The Conquering Gibraltarian Adonis” includes outrageously risqué passages that would make Christian Grey’s Red Room sound tame.

Bridget Hodges, leader of the Monumental Women’s Ink, defended the story after local residents were left “wholly shocked”, but admitted that it was “not for the faint-hearted”.

“About a month ago we decided to put it together as a book. It’s taken off from there really,” the 63-year-old said. “When Fifty Shades came out we talked about it quite a bit. We thought we would all have a go.”


Readers are given a warning before the story, telling them to “read no further if you are of a delicate disposition or think you may be offended by the contents of what follows”.

In brief, “The Conquering Gibraltarian Adonis” follows couple Mariah and Clive who have been trying to have a baby for two years. When Clive returns from sea, they engage in a wild kitchen romp.

Most of the lines are too explicit to quote (sorry), but rest assured there is lots of talk of certain ‘things’ “throbbing”, “bulging” and being “fit to burst”. It’s racy stuff.

The WI member who wrote the story, which is part of a £4 collection, has not been identified as she would prefer to remain anonymous.

“She doesn’t want anyone know it was her,” Hodges added. “She said her gran would be furious. The reaction has been very positive.

“We have talked about doing another book. You never know if we might do another raunchy chapter.”

All proceeds from book sales are going towards Musgrove Park Hospital’s Beacon Centre for cancer treatment. You can buy a copy from the group’s Facebook page or donate to the cause here.
