Filthy 50 Shades Of Grey to spark baby boom
Cult sexboox phenomenon to be responsible for mass influx of of newborns... Perhaps we'll give it a miss.
The erotic novel by EL James that’s become the fastest selling book this year will reportedly lead to an unprecedented number of births in nine months' time.
Filthy Shades Of Grey has already been credited with reuniting couples and fixing marriages, and is now acting as sexual lubricant, being dubbed ‘mummy porn’.
Professor Ellis Cashmore, expert in Culture at Staffordshire University says: ‘With the millions of copies it’s sold, it makes complete sense to assume that in nine months’ time we are going to see a baby boom.'
The claim has already gone further than speculation, expectant mums have been writing into parenting websites such as Mumsnet, claiming to be pregnant with ‘Fifty Shades Babies’.
The first book in the trilogy has already sold ten million copies worldwide, outselling Dan Brown’s ‘The Da Vinci Code’ and The Harry Potter books.
With two more books to come, could this be the start of the biggest increase in babies since the original postwar ‘baby boom?
You horny, horny people...
