While the world anticipates the release of 50 Shades of Grey, Malaysia's board of censorship banned the steamy film – calling it "more pornography than a movie."

The Malaysia Film Censorship Board denied a certification needed for the film's release, according to Variety. The movie, based on the best-seller by E.L. James, hits U.S. theaters on February 13.

"The board made a decision in view of the film containing scenes that are not of natural sexual content," said the head of Malaysia's Film Censorship Board, Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid.

While some fans are highly anticipating the release of the film, which includes graphic S&M scenes, one group is calling for a boycott worldwide.

With the hashtags #50DollarsNot50Shades a social media movement encourages people do donate money to domestic abuse agencies instead of watching the movie.

The campaign's Facebook page claims the movie glamorizes abusive relationships and that "Hollywood doesn't need your money; abused women do."
