In a stunning admission that epitomizes the opposite of two great tastes tasting great together, Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James says she likes to write the sex scenes in her books while listening to the Black Eyed Peas. "I have songs that I write sex to," she tells Business Insider. "One of them is the Black Eyed Peas' 'Sexy.' That’s a very sexy song," she says. Hm, "I'm liking you rubbing me / And you liking me rubbing you" — yep, that sounds like the passion that inspired such lines as "Orgasm! Another one!"
