It's Sunday, yet again, and that means it is time for...Something to Think About!
"A dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste."
"Don't knock masturbation - it's sex with someone I love."
As most of you know, my characters have sex and it is described rather bluntly on occasion Now, what sparks this? Sometimes people will ask me if I know my books are filled with sex? Well, I hope so since I wrote them! LOL! I've tried to mark my books for adults. This blog and even my website have warnings alluding to adult content...yet, people still stumble upon them-even though they are clearly marked as erotic romance with an added warning in the blurb. (Be advised: Contains adult sexual content).
So, why do I write sex anyways? Because it's what I enjoy reading and writing! I'm pretty sure lots of people have sex-and on a pretty regular basis since I see pregnant people on a daily basis and a few chicks at work are out on maternity leave. So, why is sex still somewhat of a "taboo" topic? Hush Hush?
Maybe being a nurse has desensitized me, because we get into very descriptive conversations about bodily functions and even sex on such a regular basis that it isn't anything for me to discuss it or masturbation! And I will say that I have fallen victim to purchasing a book and getting something totally different from what I expected...My first m/m book was that way. I remember reading the blurb and not paying much attention, buying it and reading it...Apparently I assumed one of the names to be female. Boy was I wrong. So what did I do...I read that dang book and searched for more!!
Anyways, there's just a little bit to think about! ;)!
