Women boost their sex lives with the help of one very steamy novel
Posted on 27 July 2012
Every once in a while, we see a novel that sparks controversy among book fans and critics everywhere. And 2012's "Fifty Shades of Gray," the tale of a billionaire named Christian Grey who begins a very steamy and sexual relationship with college graduate Anastasia Steele, just may be this year's top contender, as it has many people hot and bothered.
Women everywhere picked up copies of the first of three books in the trilogy written by E.L. James, which has sold more than 30 million copies. The in-depth details of the sexual intercourse between Christian and Anastasia caused fans everywhere to nickname Fifty Shades, "mommy porn."
At BabyCenter.com, an internet website devoted to pregnant women and moms, almost 150 females revealed that their babies were conceived after bedroom activity with their partner picked up after they finished reading the book.
"Having a baby takes a toll on your relationship, especially as young as we are," said 19-year-old Ashley Nealy of Fayetteville North Carolina. "Things had kind of died down, so I wanted to do something to help maybe get things back to the way they used to be between us."
Nealy said that her and partner used to be intimate about once a week. But, that all changed after reading the love-story.
"While I was reading them, it was just about every day," she revealed.
Many women have also said that reading the trilogy has not just increased the amount of bedroom time they have with partners, but spiced up their sex life as well. One Virginia mom said that while her husband was deployed abroad, reading the book gave her many new ideas to try out with him when he came back.
Whatever your feelings are on "Fifty Shades of Grey," one thing's for certain: it doesn't look like the attention it's getting will die down anytime soon.
