I have to decided to talk about sex today.
(I actually talk about sex most days. ;) I'm a creep I know.)
But on a serious level--Sex is a staple in most romance novels these days. Especially since Erotica has become extremely popular in the last couple of years. Not to mention to Fifty Shades craze that brought BDSM into the hot popularity mixtures.
Here's how I feel about sex in books today.
Haha, okay, so I'm being creepy again...but really, I like to read books that have sex in them. (Of course I also enjoy writing them too :)) I like books that embrace the sexuality of its characters. I believe it is more realistic, because that's what people do in real life.
Of course this isn't to say that I only read contemporary. I have particular love for a good contemporary erotic romance, but I also love paranormal books where there IS sex.
I don't care for books where the main characters do the dirty right away (in most cases).
I like it when everyone is damaged and broken and they have to work really fucking hard to make it work. (Pardon my inappropriateness, lol)
I also dislike people who have sex in dreams that end up being real (AKA they traveled to some sort of weird dream realm outside of their knowledge and had actual sex they thought wasn't real.)
They wake and are all like..."Woah, that was the best sex I've ever had...too bad it WASN'T real."
So, anywho...that's how I feel.
What's a girl to do with all these emotions besides write a kinky blog post? ;)
SO, what I want to know...is how you feel about it. That's right, I want your opinion on sex in books today. What do you like? What do you not like? What is a must-have when it comes to reading a good romance for you? I'm dying to know.
