Will ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Cause a Baby Boom?

Will E.L. James’ hit book series Fifty Shades of Grey cause a baby boom? Some women admit the books have not only spiced up their sex lives, but they’ve led to recent pregnancies, too.

According to a report from Hollywood Life, the erotic series finds lead character ChriFifty Shades of Greystian Grey introducing his new love-interest, Anastasia Steele–to all sorts of unusual and often-times hard-core sexual practices. Speculation is running rampant, too, on which actor will be cast as Grey when the book becomes a screenplay.

If women aren’t completely turned on by the book series’ sexual content, the books likely have women fantasizing over their own version of Christian Grey. A variety of actors from Twilight’s Robert Pattinson to True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard have been considered for the Fifty Shades of Grey leading role, but no decision has been made thus far.

“We’ve definitely spiced up a few things thanks to one Christian Grey,” a woman on a prominent baby blog wrote. “My baby will be a Fifty Shades baby for sure. And I’m damn proud of it.”

Do you think Fifty Shades of Grey might really contribute to an upcoming baby boom? Do you know of any other book in your lifetime that can be credited with leaving such a lasting impact on its readers?
