Two producers rushed around the waiting rooms of the Burbank studio, breathlessly asking after the welfare of their guests. "Are you all right? Do you need anything? Are you thirsty? Hungry?" When one woman asked for water, she was led to a kitchen, where several tables were piled high with vegetables, and Wolfgang Puck's cooking crew worked frantically to prepare dishes for the chef's Food Network show, next in line for the sound stage.

Jennifer and Laura Berman didn't go looking to become torchbearers for the female sexuality movement so much as it came looking for them. When the two sisters--one a urologist, the other a psychotherapist--set up practice together at a low-profile Boston urology clinic in 1998, their goal was to improve the treatments available for women suffering from sexual disorders. Their timing, as it turned out, was perfect.

The success of the drug Viagra among men has raised the tantalizing question of whether medications might work for women with sexual disorders, too. As many as a dozen drug companies are trying to develop therapies that would improve female libido or arousal.

The staff of the Pleasure Chest, a high-end West Hollywood sex shop, were first tipped to the "Fifty Shades of Grey" phenomenon by their accountant, who noticed a curious spike in sales a few weeks ago. New customers had been drawn to the store after reading the erotic novel about a young woman's submissive sexual relationship with a wealthy businessman, and wanted some products described in the book. Now the Pleasure Chest is organizing "Fifty Shades of Pleasure" workshops at its West Hollywood, Chicago and New York locations.
