'Fifty Shades of Grey'

... Deal

Forget carrying it in your purse -- now you can keep "Fifty Shades of Grey" where it matters most ... near your special lady place ... because TMZ has learned, the people behind the book just inked a massive women's underwear deal.

A rep for CopCorp Licensing tells TMZ, three apparel companies have just locked down the FIRST EVER licensing deals with author E.L. James to distribute "Fifty Shades"-themed clothes ... from t-shirts and hoodies ... to ladies' pantyhose, underwear, and pajamas.

According to CopCorp, FREEZE Clothing will be selling the knits, tees, and hoodies. A company called HYP will be selling hosiery, garters, and tights. And something called Briefly Stated will sell daywear, loungewear, and sleepwear (including underwear).

It's big news -- considering "Fifty Shades" is one of the most valuable licenses on the planet right now ... after the series sold more than 40 million copies worldwide.

Here's hoping the new merch comes with moisture protection.

This is getting ridiculous. Does all this sex-fueled nonsense from this trashy book and the enormous popularity among women mean we can finally put an end to all that "objectifying women" BS talk?

Now I know the end is really nigh.

There is an AWESOME review of this not-fit-to-wipe-your-butt-with tripe, on Amazon, the reviewer has counts of the numerous times specific actions, like the character's mouth falling open, are repeated. It is pure comedy.

This is indeed a sad state of affairs when a book like these are getting so much attention. Before you say I am prude No No No these books just suck, there is nothing erotic, the writing is horrible and there are far better sex scenes in your average novel.It does not even represent S&M well. These books are doing to sex what Twilight has done to vampires, dumbs them down for people that don't even read cereal boxes.

So for decades women fought to be taken seriously, to be equals... to be looked at as more than objects... then they go and praise a work like this. So much for Women's lib.

50 shades of grey couldn't do a deal with men's underwear because they would have had to change there name to 50 shades of brown.
