Fellow author RE Bradshaw recently posted a blog asking “How much sex is enough?” You can check out her blog here:
Decky posted about her blog in the Virtual Living Room:
And it’s started a lively discussion. Another author buddy, Jeanine Hoffman asked, “How graphic is too graphic?”
This all got me thinking – is there any such thing as too much sex? Obviously, this is a matter of preference. One reader, Kaysi posted on my Facebook page, “filler words are good too but we all know it’s the creamy center thats the best!” :c)
Others actually skip sex in books… which means they essentially wouldn’t bother to buy Forbidden Passions if it came out cuz it’s all about Katie and Corrine and their intimacy. If that book is published, it will be under the “HeatStroke” imprint which is BSB’s erotic line.
I’ve had close to twenty erotic short stories published and erotic anthologies seem to be popular. But do you enjoy novels that are mostly sex? Let me hear from you. Is there such a thing as too much sex? Or are the other words truly filler and you really enjoy the sex scenes?
Most people seem to enjoy the “naughty bits” I post on my Facebook page, but would that enjoyment extend to a book full of them?
Personally, I feel that there’s a time to fade to black and a time for play-by-play, but I’m looking for feedback – can a book have too much sex? What say you?
