'Fifty Shades' author EL James has revealed that she regrets never being asked to be a sex slave like the book's heroine Anastasia Steele

The 48-year-old writer admitted that her steamy novels were based on her fantasies - with domineering kinky sex addict Christian Grey being “my ideal man.”

“Christian’s fantastic on paper but it would be a nightmare living with him,” a major newspaper quoted her as saying.

“Perhaps I’d like to be told how to dress, eat and behave - but only for ten minutes.

“I like the concept, but the reality is you want someone who’ll help with the housework as well,” she said.

The British author - real name Erika Leonard, a mum of two – hinted that her antics were far removed from those of Grey and lover Anastasia Steele.

“Being a mother and sex don’t mix well,” she added.
