The theory is pretty simple.
Woman reads sexy book called 50 Shades of Grey. Woman arches eyebrow at husband. Woman leads husband to distinctly suburban bedroom and has distinctly non-BDSM-style-sex with distinctly un-Christian-Grey-looking husband. A baby is made.
Proving that reading is not dead — quite the opposite, it would seem — author E.L. James gave the literary world a VERY lusty shakeup with her 50 Shades of Grey franchise… and the VERY literal response that ensued.
Indeed, statistics in the UK have emerged proving a fairly ick finding: there has been a real life baby boom trend following the 50 Shades of Grey books and movie.
The first book launched in 2011. It took a few months, however, for the giggled whispers of the book club ladies to become a full-blown roar of horny middle aged women and the book’s true popularity only hit its stride towards the end of 2011. At the height of its popularity, there was a copy of the book being sold every second.
By that stage, the cult of Steele-Grey fanatics were frothing at the mouth for more — and before long their hunger was satisfied.
