Alison Klayman is 27 years old. She's graduated from Brown University, written for NPR, moved to China and made a feature length documentary. Oh, and she won the Sundance Special Jury Prize this past January.

50 Shades of Grey. It’s everywhere, including (probably) on your mom's bedside table. And while everyone is talking about the series and hungrily flipping through its pages, they’re usually trying to figure one thing out: what does hunky perv Christian Grey look like? Well, apparently UK scientists have a lot of time on their hands and love BDSM, because they’re plagued by the same question.
