In response to the hype surrounding Fifty Shades of Grey, Roiphe gained national prominence in 2012 with a Newsweek cover story about why sadomasochism is a feminist dream. The story went viral, and many feminists again called for her to be tied up and gagged.
"You ruined my relationship with Marnie ... and with cocaine, which could have been my favorite drug."
When I read and see how the millennials conduct themselves, how they date, socialize and lead their lives, I have nothing in my own history to compare it to. That piece on "The End of Courtship" made me feel from another era.
