Best selling novel "50 Shades of Grey" is on millions of nightstands across the country, and it's not just helping in the bedroom.
Some experts say the erotica literature could be strengthening relationships while expanding intimacy horizons for couples.
"You know, we all know what it's like to be married for so many years and you just get into a routine, so if a book comes along that kind of lights your fire, more power to you!"
Relationship Coach Kathy Dawson says talking about fantasy roles and experimenting in a committed relationship is normal. She says the book is obviously skewed to appeal to women, but it wouldn't hurt if the couple read the book together.
