A Pirate FM poll has revealed more than a third of Cornish people who have read 'Fifty Shades of Grey' say it has helped their relationships.

The raunchy book has sold ten million copies so far.

One reader in Falmouth said, "It's a little bit saucy! Men are kind of semi-complaining about it and then anyone that's in relationships, they're like praising the book. I've got a friend who's read the whole thing and he said to me at the end, I felt incredibly like an under-achiever, after having read this book".

Rose Croxford is a relationship counsellor in Falmouth. She thinks fantasy can have benefits: "My first thoughts, it was titillating, it would help people feel in the mood for intimacy with their partner. Fantasy in people's minds, when it has no impact on reality, can be very helpful.

"If it helps people switch off from the stresses of work and enter a more relaxed frame of mind, perhaps a more fun frame of mind, yes, it can be."
