For those keeping track, I write paranormal romance, but it does have its more erotic moments. I like sex- not afraid to admit it. I enjoy writing about it, and delving into the scene, making it something you can visualize in HD clarity.
So it only seemed natural that I spin off into writing erotica as well, right? Hmm, apparently not. I’ve noticed people love to read it, but no one dares talk about it. Why not? If it’s well-written, what does it matter? So the words are more graphic than, say, your favorite Nora Roberts romance? So it’s more Laurell K. Hamilton than Fern Michaels. That’s okay, right?
So I posted this status on Facebook yesterday and I swear I hear crickets chirping:
So…. who here likes dirty works and sexy scenes? *raises eyebrows* There should be at least a few hands in the air…. I’m looking for ideas of what works and what doesn’t…. if you don’t want to comment, please send me a message.
No big deal, right? Again- wrong. One friend hit the “like” button. No one commented, no one else “liked” it, and certainly no one sent a message. Which makes me wonder…
Why is the topic of sex, your reading likes and dislikes when it comes to sex, so taboo?
