Barbara Walters, the 82-year-old co-host of “The View,” brought some kink to Monday’s show during a discussion of “50 Shades of Grey.”

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg called the best-selling novel by EL James “mommy porn” that is full of “kinky sex and bondage.”

Walters explained quite simply why women enjoy reading the erotic book: “Women, especially women like us who work and who argue and this and that, when you go home you want the guy to be in charge,” she said, “and more than be in charge — do very kinky things.”

Goldberg did not like the images Walters put in her head saying, “that visual you just gave me has made my eyes bleed.”

Walters took the conversation one step further and asked the most conservative co-host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, if she likes it when her husband is “rough” during sex.

And the only response to Walters’ comment? A loud “wow” from pretty much everyone on “The View.”
