A poster in a recent chat commented that "anal is the new black," in reference to erotic romance. I suppose one could risk being disgusting and amend the statement to read "anal is the new brown
," but I want to build my readership, so I'll pass. The remark, though, did give me cause to ponder. Do readers of erotic romance like to read scenes containing anal sex? I have written a few myself (Truth or Dare
features one prominent scene, and an MMF, and of course The Healing
has its moments). I hadn't considered whether I'll continue the trend in future books, though it seems a given with any future M/Ms I write, and I have at least one contracted.
Speaking of, if you're in the mood for a laugh, check out the most popular anal sex position in the world
(no nudity, though not sure if it qualifies as NSFW).
