“50 Shades of Grey” Responsible for the Next Baby Boom? (Plus a Video of Kate Moss Reading a Passage)

So if you haven’t heard of the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, I don’t even have time to talk about the rock you’ve been living under, but here’s the rundown of the series.  Reserved Anastasia Steele meets millionaire, sadomasochist Christian Grey and a wild, semi-unhealthy relationship equipped with whips and chains ensues.  The book has sold over 20 million copies this year alone and is now being made into a movie.  But the trilogy isn’t just creating spikes in business for book stores and sex shops, its apparently spurred a whole new baby boom!

Middle aged women everywhere are using this book to, for lack of a better term, get their groove back.  Couples who formally couldn’t get pregnant are now crediting the book with their recent success.  Married couples are using the book to bring spice back into their relationship.

Well, that’s all well and good, but WHAT? First of all the thought of old people sex creeps me out. But, second of all people, it’s just a book.  You guys can’t seriously believe that a novel, no matter how good, can cure infertility.  Imagine how the kids are going to feel knowing that they were conceived in their parents own “red room of pain” amidst whips and gags.  Middle school was hard enough without having to carry that little mental tidbit around.

And, I don’t even want to think of the creepy baby names that are going to come out of this whole sadomasochism trend.

If the book is helping you conceive children or making you suddenly want your spouse again, great.  Otherwise, let whatever happens behind close doors, stay there.

PS: Here’s an amazing video of Kate Moss reading 50 Shades of Grey, just because we realized we’ve never really heard her speak before.
