Dear Mr Muslim: You asked us non muslims to read Quran. I did not have to read the whole Quran . Just one aya convinced me that Quran is Allah's true message and Mohammed is the true prophet of Allah .

The simple meaning of aya 33.50 is:

Mohammed , besides your wedded wives (he had nine including 9 year old Ayesha), you are allowed to have sex with the women captured in raids of the non muslim communities, with your slave girls, with your first cousins, and with any woman who offers herself to you. This priviledge is only for you (since you are my top prophet) , not for other muslims . They can have sex , besides their wedded four wives, with the women they capture in the raids of the non muslims and with their slave girls only.

( that means no free sex with their first cousins or any other women without marriage first . To have sex with them they must make room in their harems by divorcing existing wives if he already has four of them by aya 4.20 which says y0u can change your wives)

(for tafsir of this aya and all of quran I found faithfreedom.org and prophetofdoom.net to be the best)
