Dr. Charlotte Jones, chairwoman of the British Medical Association’s GP Committee says the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy has led to older couples being more adventurous in bed and could explain a rise in sexually transmitted infections among the over-50s.
Dr. Jones also said, “When it comes to forgetting about safe sex we always think of the vulnerability of young people. But there’s the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ effect where older people are being more explorative, but not necessarily remembering to use a condom. Anyone, of any age, going into new relationships should be thinking about safe sex and particularly the role of condoms. People need to take care.”
The film based on the best-selling erotic novels is set for release on Valentine’s Day next year with Jamie Dornan in the role of billionaire Christian Grey.
Dr. Jones revealed doctors are starting to see more cases of gonorrhea and syphilis along with more common thrush and chlamydia.
