Example Citations:
Manhattan moms who were only recently tearing through The Help and parenting books by B-list celebrities (anyone remember Soleil Moon Frye?) have found a new and unlikely addiction: Fifty Shades, a 1,200-plus-page trilogy that centres on the BDSM relationship — that's bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism — of hunky billionaire Christian Grey and an inexperienced college student with the improbable name Anastasia Steele.
For yummy mummies in NYC and beyond, the trilogy is a grown-up Twilight — their "mommy porn," as some have put it.

Trillin gives the impression of being the best kind of husband. He not only wears the Snugli and pulls his domestic weight, he's utterly enchanted by his family.
Trillin and "Family Man" are so appealing and vicariously pleasurable that the book amounts to no less than mommy porn.

Earliest Citation:
She's the heroine of Allison Pearson's first novel, "I Don't Know How She Does It: The Life of Kate Reddy, Working Mother."...
If "Bridget Jones's Diary" was chick-lit, then this is mommy porn: a seductive fantasy where ultimately there is no guilt, no fault, no regret.
