Sado-masochistic best-seller "50 Shades of Grey" is popular reading among high-value detainees at Guantanamo, officials told a visiting congressional delegation. "Rather than the Koran, the book that is requested most by the (Camp Seven detainees) is 'Fifty Shades of Grey,'" House Democrat Jim Moran said in comments first published by the Huffington Post and confirmed July 31, 2013 by his spokeswoman. "They've read the entire series in English," said Moran, who advocates for closure of the US detention facility in southeastern Cuba. "I guess there's not much going on. These guys are going nowhere, so what the hell." The unexpected "Fifty Shades" revelation reportedly came during a tour that delegation members took with the base commander, the chief medical officer, and the officer in charge of once-secret Camp Seven, the most secure part of the Guantanamo facility. British author EL James has sold more than 70 million copies of her erotic romance trilogy of novels, which depict the use of handcuffs and blindfolds during sex.
