50 Shades of Grey has not only proven to be a good read, selling millions of copies in such a short span of time, but has also improved people's sex lives. Taking inspiration from the novel, couples are now having three times more sex than they used to. Researchers found on average women slept with their partners just once a week before reading the book, but this leapt to three times every week once they finished the erotic read. What more, the sex sessions now last longer too. Two-thirds of women said reading the book made their lovemaking last longer, with the average session now taking 15 minutes more, with one in 25 couples enjoying romps an extra hour long. Couples have also been inspired to use extra sex positions after reading the sexually adventurous book. Previously one in eight used just one position each time they made love, but now over 40 percent of couples cram in five or more positions each time they have sex.
The research which was conducted by Netmums. com saw 2,183 women polling for the research. Overall 64 per cent of women said the sizzling page-turner had made them more sexually adventurous, while 54 per cent said the boost to their love life had made them emotionally closer to their partner too. The raunchy read also sparked a baby boom with one in 33 women who read it ending up pregnant and a further nine percent using the book to tempt their man into more sex in a bid to fall pregnant. A third of girls fell pregnant in the very first month they started reading the book, with a further 42 per cent pregnant the month after.
