Sex Scenes in Erotica
Why all the sex in romance these days? It’s crazy how hot romance now read likes erotica. Or is it? Erotica is all about sex where romance has two plots (one romance and one suspense/scifi/fantasy/etc.). I write the kind of erotica that has sex scenes that serve a purpose. This is erotic romance full of explicit sex scenes and character problems. If a story just has one sex scene after another without any purpose for the scene to exist other than to inspire the reader, that’s erotica. So, I suppose, those authors writing romance focused on the solving internal and external turmoil with lots of detailed sex scenes are just writing mainstream…But we can’t market our work that way. Some people still blush when the read words like cock and clit. I’m certain the privacy in reading offered by e-readers has broadened the readership of erotic romance though! So why are so many people turning to erotic romance for a good read?
