Will 50 Shades of Grey Cause a Baby Boom?
The hot book that’s sweeping the nation could have an unexpected result – a “50 Shades of Grey” baby boom.
The steamy romance novel by author EL James has become an international sensation among women, and now a British professor predicts that in about nine months from now the world can anticipate a slew of “50 Shades” babies.
“By the very nature of the subject matter I’m sure we can expect to see some couple’s revisiting and reigniting ideas that may have lay dormant for some time in the bedroom,” Professor Professor Ellis Cashmore of Staffordshire University explained to the Daily Mail. “It’s not a difficult equation: more sex equals more pregnancies, which equals more babies.”
Indeed, with millions of books already sold internationally, some couples are already crediting their new pregancies to the book. As one father commented to the Daily Mail, “The book turned her into a bit of an animal. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed it at first – but she just couldn’t get enough and now we’re expecting our third child together.”
Anyone out there anticipating a 50 Shades baby?
