'Mommy Porn' Is On The Rise

Posted: Updated:

"50 Shades of Grey" was just the beginning.

CBS This Morning took a look at the rising trend in erotic romance novels, or "mommy porn," that has given traditional bodice rippers a run for their money. The interview naturally started with "the world's sexiest grandma," erotica author Desiree Holt, 76, who has been profiled by Huff/Post50 in the past.

"The nice thing with the e-readers [is] you can read anything on it and no one knows what you're reading," said Holt. "You could be reading one of my books, you could be reading Shakespeare."
