As far as anybody can tell, the women of Long Island found it first, around Thanksgiving. During their Christmas vacations, they carried it by Kindle to Boca and possibly Aruba, and from there, it ripped its way through Jersey and then the nation's e-readers before landing last week at the very top of the New York Times best-seller list for combined print and e-book sales. It's Fifty Shades of Grey , the sexual-bondage romance novel from first-time author E.L. James, a married British TV executive and mother of two, that's been steaming up e-book readers since its digital publication in May and is about to be released as a trilogy in paperback form, with a first run of 750,000 copies.

A Bucks County judge yesterday sentenced to two years' probation the owner of a former Bensalem photography studio that was used as a front for a sadomasochistic house of sexual bondage and domination. Robert M. Shockey, 47, of Willow Grove, pleaded guilty in April to promoting prostitution, but Judge Isaac S. Garb had delayed sentencing Shockey until Bucks County Adult Probation and Parole completed a pre-sentencing investigation. The probation office recommended the probationary sentence imposed by Garb, Assistant District Attorney Troy Leitzel said.

Under a hot July sun, droplets of water drawn from the Nile soothed baked Philadelphia clay at the bottom of a great pit at Sixth and Market Streets - a blessing for the earth and for the dead. River water was followed by ancient Nile sand, glistening grains of the African continent trickling down onto the hard New World. The libation yesterday was part of a ceremony marking the formal close of the President's House excavation, an archaeological undertaking that captured the public imagination and wouldn't let go. For four months, archaeologists sifted through Independence Mall soil, uncovering evidence of the home where slave-owning George Washington and antislavery John Adams lived and launched American democracy in the 1790s and where Washington held nine Africans in bondage.

Jag Ram sold himself and 50 of his followers into bondage five years ago. The now-wizened and sad-eyed Ram was the leader of a group of nomads who wandered from their desert home in Rajasthan to the greener lands of adjacent Haryana state, hoping to find a better life. They traveled from town to town, selling spices and herbs and small things they had made. One day, in the market town of Sonha about 100 miles south of New Delhi, the owner of a stone quarry lured Ram into taking some advance money for the group - more money than these poor people had ever seen.

It was a wicked price to pay for a beer. But at least a half-dozen South Jersey young men had a strong enough beer thirst to submit to a convicted sex offender's perverse request: John "Big Sexy" Banda, tied the boys up, gagged and blindfolded them, then took Polaroid pictures of them, Medford Township police said. The young men, who were ages 16 to 22, were rewarded with beer. Banda, police said, was rewarded with a permanent record of young boys in bondage. "They were doing it to get booze.

Q: As a male who's into bondage as a submissive, I have a tough time bringing up my kink to a potential new partner. How does a guy first discuss the fact that he wants to be tied up by a woman and/or pegged (anally penetrated using a dildo)? Steve: I wouldn't mention it on the first date unless she greets you at the door wearing a black leather bodice. Mia: Ask your girl what her biggest sexual fantasy is. After she answers, tell her that you're into being tied up. If she's cool with that level of kink, tell her you'd also like to be "pegged.

A homeless man has been charged after a two-week investigation into 100 photographs of gagged and bound boys found on the back seat of his car, police announced yesterday. John Mario Banda Jr., 47, was charged with providing alcohol to minors, false imprisonment and harassment. Five of at least eight males between ages 16 and 22 identified in the Polaroids were from Mount Laurel, Medford Lakes and Southampton. They were not sexually assaulted, police said, but the pictures were alarming because many showed the boys and young men hog-tied with their mouths and eyes covered by packing tape.

Katrina Browne may be the rare director at the Sundance Film Festival more fired up by the prospect of social justice than a distribution deal. Yesterday, on Martin Luther King's Birthday, Browne's documentary about her slave-trader ancestors, Traces of the Trade: A Story From the Deep North, premiered at the indie conclave in Park City, Utah. Nine years in the making, the film, as emotional as it is provocative, is the work of a Philadelphian who grew up "steeped in our country's democratic ideals.

Q: I've been married twice, but never really had a long-term relationship. Now in my 40s, I've mastered Internet dating and continuously date multiple women. That strokes the ego, but it's also a curse. I wish I could settle down and be happy, but settling down for me lasts about 3 1/2 months. I was just chewed out by a past girlfriend that I am incapable of having a long-term relationship - the truth hurts. Any advice here? Steve: You're suffering from Peter Pan syndrome. Most lost boys grow up and settle down.

Jurors will start deliberations Wednesday in the federal trial of two Ukrainian brothers charged with running what prosecutors say amounted to a ring of indentured servants cleaning suburban big-box retail stores. The illegal immigrants, largely young men from the same area of the former Soviet Union, were allegedly beaten and threatened to keep them under control working 16-hour days for little pay, say prosecutors. At least one female immigrant was raped, according the grand jury indictment, handed up in June 2010 in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia.

X-Ray Spex released just one album, 1978's Germ Free Adolescents . But its aggressively catchy single "Oh Bondage, Up Yours!" became an enduring punk anthem.

Q: I'm 41 and dating two men. I have a great time with both. The one I have been dating almost five years still lives with his parents. His mom still cooks and washes for him. He works two jobs and drinks a lot. He is the partyer. He loves me but doesn't want to marry me. He has also kept things from me, like the fact that he was married before. But I love him despite that. The second man is a friend from childhood who I got reacquainted with about a year ago. He is sweet, generous, a great father, cooks for me, takes me to baseball games and is always patient.

How far can you stretch a joke? In today's film comedies, from here to eternity. Or in the case of Year One , backwards, from here to the dawn of man. The premise for this dopey but resourceful yukfest is simple: Take primitive Mesolithic tribesmen and load them up with modern vernacular and a standup's fast-twitch delivery. So you have guys in loincloths talking about "downtime" and "pooching the dog. " The fall guys in this slapstick saga are Zed (Jack Black)

Darrell Lee stood just feet from the Liberty Bell yesterday, but the story he told was not of freedom. He played the role of Giles, one of nine enslaved Africans owned by George Washington. "My ancestors hated every second of slavery," he said in character to the more than 200 people who gathered at Independence National Historical Park, the site of the nation's first executive mansion. The interpreter spoke of how Africans fleeing slavery would run to the water to throw bloodhounds off their scent.

Old Black Alice, who died in 1802 at the wondrous age of 116, remembered well lighting the pipe of William Penn, when the proprietor and slave owner needed a puff. She remembered attending nascent Christ Church at a time when the nave ceiling was so low she could touch it with the tips of her weathered, slender fingers. She remembered it all: working the boats of Dunk's Ferry to help white passengers across the river during the day. And working secretly at night to help fellow slaves disappear across the water to freedom.
