Conservative TV preacher Pat Robertson on Monday linked women who enjoyed the erotic movie Fifty Shades of Grey to an increase in sex trafficking around the world.

Over the weekend, Exodus Cry Director Benjamin Nolot, told a group at Regent University, which was founded by Robertson, that people who appreciated the Fifty Shades of Grey movie were degrading the culture, and making it more difficult to stop sex slavery.

"We have reached this point where it seems like there is no conscience at all left whatsoever," he explained to CBN News.

"It made me think about that Fifty Shades of Grey, how many women have read the book and how many women are going to the movie," Robertson opined. "It's about all kinds of sadomasochism, it's about bondage, about whips, it's about boiling oil, it's about various types of restraints."

"It is an unbelievable story of sadomasochistic bondage of women," he continued. "Women are objects."

"And to think that everybody is not taking it as, 'Oh, well, that's just a -- quote -- romance story.' Puh-lease!"
