Fifty shades of grey

I suspect Ayn Rand would have loved this.
I watched a documentary about this book last night, the fastest selling paperback in the UK of all time. It's a best seller in the US too having sold over 20 million copies. Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2011 erotic novel by British author E. L. James.
It's predominantly read by women. It features a lot of BDSM sex and romance between a 22 year old college student and a 27 year old successful businessman. Her name is Anastasia Steele, his name is Christian "Grey", so for once the yanks had to adapt to the British spelling (and not vis versa).
Anyway, I haven't read it yet and I am not planning to either.
I am intrigued why it is so popular amongst women though. After watching the documentary I still don't know. (My wife hasn't read it either and doesn't plan to).
Here are some ideas:
1) They secretly want to be BDSM dominated.
2) This is an untaped market for female porn.
Does anyone here have a clue as to what this cultural phenomenon means?
