Fifty Shades of Grey Sparks New Baby Boom!

Posted by Alissa Robson

Apparently we have some reading to catch up on! 50 Shades of Grey is not only responsible for mass droves of women at bookstores, it may also be responsible for increased shopping in the baby boutiques!

An article on BabyCenter reports that their community has been overwhelmed with women crediting the tantalizing book series with their increased…shall we say, desires…which is completely expected from the sounds of the books. But what’s surprising is that women are also giving them full credit for babies that are now on the way!

From the sounds of it, it’s not so much that the books themselves are making women yearn to become mommies (we’d have to think from their scandalous nature that nighttime feedings and dirty diapers are the furthest from a woman’s mind while reading them!), but more like the books are increasing the odds of getting pregnant for those who are actively trying or “not actively not trying” so to speak.

How does it do this? By increasing the frequency of time between the sheets!

One reader, for example, claimed in a comment, “Yup, this series was definitely my version of female Viagara. Thank you E.L. James!”. Now that’s quite a testimonial!

We’re shamefaced to admit we haven’t yet read this hot series, but now we’re even more intrigued.

To our readers, what do you think of the books? Did they increase your bedroom time, and if so, any baby news to report?

We’d love to hear it in the SureBaby comments!
