Apparently, we're getting a little more comfortable getting a little bit kinky.
It's Sex Week 2013, and as the iVillage 2013 Married Sex Survey -- which takes a figurative peek inside the bedrooms of married couples to find out what's really going on under the covers -- discovered, quite a few of us have the Fifity Shades of Grey trilogy author E.L. James to thank for a spicier sex life.
Our survey found that a fifth of men and women have read Fifty Shades of Grey -- and of those, a whopping 65 percent said their sex life changed as a result of the racy book. Surprisingly, 87 percent of men reported a change compared to just 34 percent of women. For those guys, 39 percent had more foreplay, 38 percent had more sex, 38 percent bought sexy lingerie, 34 percent talked more about desires and fantasies and 34 percent introduced more sex toys into the bedroom.
But the female-friendly erotica hasn't just benefitted the men: 50 percent of women who read the book reported that they started having more sex, 43 percent said that it helped them feel more comfortable initiating sex and 31 percent had more conversations about their fantasies and desires.
So what's the result of all of this Fifty Shades of Grey sex -- besides, well, better sex? Well, get ready for a Fifty Shades of Grey baby boom!
