AP - "Fifty Shades of Grey" is turning into 50 shades of green. From classical music to sex toys, marketers are cashing in on the risque best-seller. EMI Music is feeling the love. It's putting out "Fifty Shades of Grey: The Classical Album" next month in partnership with author E L James. Trojan, the condom company, was giving away free vibrators last week on the streets of Manhattan. The sex toys were handed out from "pleasure carts" like the ones used for selling hot dogs. The crowds were so big the city shut them down temporarily. Trojan says 10,000 vibrators were given away over two days.
