Jones, an Olympic hurdler and bobsledder, devout Christian and self-professed virgin, is quite sure that God is not into BDSM and would be very displeased with the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomena.
Funny how some people think there's nothing wrong with 50 shades of Grey. God didn't create sex for that purpose. Watch another movie

Cue the Twitter uproar:

Lest anyone think Jones has an easy time up there on her high horse, she said in a 2012 interview that maintaining her virginity is the most difficult thing she has ever done. Yes, even harder than that.
“It’s just something, a gift that I want to give to my husband,” she revealed on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. “But please understand this journey has been hard. If there’s virgins out there, I just want to let them know, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Harder than training for the Olympics, harder than graduating from college, has been to stay a virgin before marriage.”
Harder than getting away from all the Fifty Shades of Grey hoopla.
