Chapter Summaries & Analyses
Ana’s subconscious tells her she’s crazy for losing her virginity to Christian and considering engaging in his kink. She makes them breakfast, and Christian joins her. He tells her to eat. After, they will continue her basic training. Ana contacts Kate, who has called and texted, worried about Ana. When she hangs up, Ana asks Christian if she can talk to Kate about their sexual relationship, and he says no.
They take a bath, and Ana performs oral sex for the first time. Her “inner goddess is thrilled” at her ability to pleasure him (135). They move to the bed, and Christian ties her hands and tells her to keep them above her head. He gives her oral sex, and then they have intercourse again. Afterward, she knows she wants to continue their relationship. She considers, “I know in that moment I would do anything for this man. I am his. The wonder that he’s introduced me to, it’s beyond anything I could have imagined” (140). Christian has brought her into a world of intense pleasure, and she wants to stay in that world. As the chapter closes, Christian and Ana hear voices in the hallway outside his bedroom door. Christian’s mother has arrived.
