Fifty Shades of something

Please don't hate me but I am one of those soccer Moms who really enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey. What would I like to read next?

I've seen a number of "If you liked Fifty Shades, you will like..." but the few titles on the lists that I know, are not what I am looking for. In particular, I see frequent references to the Beauty series or the Story of O - both of which I read and enjoyed but I'm put off by the emphasis on learning submission.
The part that I liked best in Fifty Shades was that Ana is NOT a true submissive - she just into fun, kinky sex where both partners are tyring to pleasing themselves and the other person. That is a liberating combination for me (kinky sex between equals) and I would like to read more. The recommendations should also have some reasonable level of plot and character development, although since I liked 50 shades, you can see my standards here are not very high.
