Question

To Porn or Not to Porn

Yep, that is the question. It’s a question I ask myself every once in awhile, usually after some kind of viewing of, well, porn.

This time, the question, ahem, arose when we got a weekend of free Cinemax, aka Skinemax. For me, the experience was a Not to Porn. Late night cable still seems to run toward, “the sluttier the better”, and that just doesn’t do it for me. If I never see another pair of over-inflated breasts struggling to jiggle, I’ll be a happy camper.

I need sensuality. I need a reason for them to be in bed together that amounts to more than realizing it’s been longer than three minutes since anyone screwed. It’s safe to say there’s something for everyone churning out of the porn industry these days, but I doubt I’ll be finding anything I like on late night cable. I will say that at least it’s better than the 70’s and 80’s when three guys and a girl always meant:

Guy 1 – Doggy Style

Guy 2 – Getting Blow Job

Guy 3 – Standing over other three, masturbating

Nothing wrong with any of those scenarios, but that’s the best they could do with three guys and a girl? Cripes, my teenage fantasies were better than that! Hmm, wonder if that has anything to do with what I write now? As for my adult fantasies…well, let’s just say I’m in the right – write? – business! Women statistically prefer their imagination over something visual, and I’m no exception. Heck, we talked about that last month!

So no, we won’t be ordering Skinemax anytime soon. I’ll still be turning off the tv and reaching for a good, sensual book with characters I can like. Care to join me?

How deep do you wanna go?

teaser 3 for menage material

Hey Everyone,

I’m over my first post jitters, and now, I’m going to start as I mean to go on. Bringing you the weird and whacky stuff I find on my forays on the net.

Today’s question is…what do women want? And more specifically, what do women readers of Erotica want? My desire to ask this question hasn’t appeared out of nowhere. Nope, if you check out this article by Alfred MacDonald over on ThoughtCatalog, titled: Here’s Every Gory Detail You’ve Ever Wanted To Know About Anal Sex, you’ll start to understand what I’m asking. Especially combined with another article which was published last week over on Cosmopolitan.com. One of their editors decided to have a bit of a go at Erotica tropes. (Amy Odell’s article can be found here.) Now, everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, but I have to ask, how much realism do you guys want in a book?

You have one article describing, graphically, the actual act of anal sex which occurs frequently in the Erotica genre. But if you read it, you’ll see why writers can’t be graphic! God, would anyone get turned on if you read about the actual intricacies involved in the act? Then, you have the other article, bemoaning a writer’s use of euphemistic phrases like ‘my sex’ or ‘his length’.

Can you see my problem?

As a writer of Erotica, specifically ménage a trois novels, how realistic can I actually be? Most readers of ménage agree, the happy-ever-afters of erotic romance containing three characters or more are uncommon in the outside world. How often do you find your neighbors engaging in permanent threesomes? (Right, I wanna know where you live if this stuff goes down on your street!! Lol!!)

My point is, sometimes, realistic story plots have to go hand in hand with unrealistic ones. Do you agree? Or not? Am I talking bull? Let me know, I’d love your opinion.

And while I’m here, I have my own tale of realistic, unrealistic romance to pimp. 🙂 Ménage Material, which can be found on BookStrand is the tale of a very, very lucky lady, who is the object of two rather delicious hunks’ desires! 😀 Check it out, and let me know what you think! 🙂
