JOSH, WE TURN, NOW, TO THE LITTLE BOOK BURNING UP THE BEST-SELLER LIST AND STEAMING UP BEDROOMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. IT'S "FIFTY SHADES OF GREY." SO POPULAR THAT ONE BRITISH HOTEL HAS REPLACED BIBLES WITH COPIES OF THE NOVEL IN ROOMS. AND THE BOOK HAS INSPIRED SOME READERS TO REV UP THEIR OWN SEX LIVES, WITH OBVIOUS RESULTS. AMY IS HERE, NOW, TO EXPLAIN, AS IF WE NEED EXPLAINING. GIVE US A FEW DETAILS, LARA. IT'S ONE OF THE HOTTEST BEST-SELLERS OF ALL-TIME. E.L. JAMES' BEST-SELLER SOLD 24 MILLION COPIES IN THE LAST 4 MONTHS. AND FOR SOME WOMEN, THIS BOOK HAS PROVIDED MORE THAN STEAMY BEDSIDE READING. THE BOOK CALLED PORN FOR THE MOMMY SET HAS BEEN HEATING UP BEDROOMS FOR MONTHS. I GOT LOST IN THAT LITTLE FANTASY WORLD. IT WAS EROTIC AND SENSUAL. Reporter: AND NOW, NINE MONTHS LATER -- THE BOOK IS BEING CREDITED WITH ITS VERY OWN BABY BOOM. READING "FIFTY SHADES OF GREY" IS ACTING LIKE AN APHRODISIAC FOR WOMEN. IT'S PUTTING THEM IN THE MOOD MORE FREQUENTLY. THEY'RE VERY MORE SEX. AND THEY'RE GETTING PREGNANT FASTER. I'M BRINGING SEXY BACK Reporter: BRINGING SEXY BACK IN THE BEDROOM IS ONE THING. BUT COULD IT BE STIRRING THE BIRDS AND THE BEES, TOO? ACCORDING TO SOME COUPLES IT'S DONE JUST THAT. AFTER 13 MONTHS, THEY FOUND THAT AFTER MONTHS OF TRYING FOR A BABY, IT TOOK THE SEXY OUT OF SEX.

GET TO WORK. Reporter: AFTER HAVING TWO KIDS WITH RELATIVE EASE, SCOTT AND DANIELLE OF NEW YORK WERE ALSO STRIKING OUT. GETTING FRUSTRATING. SHE WAS STRESSED. YOU KNOW, CHRISTIAN GREY ENTERED MY LIFE. Reporter: IN SOME CASES, IT WASN'T JUST FUN IN THE BEDROOM. FOR MICHELLE AND MICHAEL, A MISCARRIAGE MADE IT DIFFICULT TO ADD TO THEIR FAMILY OF FOUR. THEN, MICHELLE'S GIRLFRIEND RECOMMENDED THE BOOK. I STARTED HEARING ABOUT IT. AND I STARTED TAKING PICTURES OF THE BOOK. GO AHEAD. OPEN UP AN E-MAIL. OH, IT'S A PICTURE. ARE YOU SUGGESTING SOMETHING? Reporter: AND THEN, NATURE PRETTY MUCH TOOK ITS COURSE. IT GOT ME MORE EXCITED. AND IN TURN, HE GOT MORE LOVE AND AFFECTION. SHE PUT DOWN THE BOOK AND WAS, LIKE, ALL OVER ME. SO, THE BOOK, YEAH. I'D SAY, IT WAS -- GOT ME THINKING. THAT'S FOR SURE. Reporter: WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THE AUTHOR? I KNOW IT SOUNDS SILLY. BUT I GUESS, THANK YOU. BRING ON THE NEXT SERIES, I GUESS. Reporter: THE AUTHOR, E.L. JAMES, HASN'T WEIGHED IN ON A POSSIBLE BABY BOOM. BUT SALES FIGURE SHOWS A PATTERN. MY DUE DATE IS FEBRUARY 20th. MY DUE DATE IS FEBRUARY 15th. Reporter: SALES OF THE BOOK, THIS PAST MAY, NINE MONTHS BEFORE THEIR DUE DATE. AND THE BOOK EVEN SPAWNED ANOTHER TREND. I WOULD LIKE TO NAME THE BABY ANASTASIA, IF IT'S A GIRL. IF IT'S THE MAIN CHARACTER. HE'S NOT SO MUCH FOR THE IDEA YET. Reporter: THERE'S A NAME FOR THE BABIES ONLINE. WOMEN ARE CARRYING GREY BABIES OR GREYBIES. MOVE OVER MICHAEL AND ASHLEY.
