Jessica Blair

Sometimes when I’m reading stories on LitErotica.com, I feel like I can tell when a man has written a story and given himself a woman’s pseudonym. Some stories are just … different. They sound overly porn-y, involving words like pounding and ramming, and clearly what some horny dude thinks a woman’s experience of sex might be like. I think to myself, I see through your pseudonym, “Ashleigh St. Pierre!”

But Brits, of course, are a little more subtle. That must be why no one figured out that the romance novelist “Jessica Blair” was actually an 89-year-old grandpa and military veteran named Bill Spence. Keep reading »

The 5 Most Baffling Romance Novel Genres

We here on the Internet aren’t really in a position to judge readers of romance novels. Sure, people stereotype the books as wish-fulfillment fantasies for housewives dreaming of muscle-bound doctor-sheik-Navy-SEAL-Vikings, but at least they’re less weird than the crazy stuff you’ll find online. For the most part, that is. Look a bit deeper into the romance genre and you’ll find all sorts of stories about…

#5. The Amish. Many of us look at the technology-free Amish with longing, thinking of simpler times in the past when we didn’t feel so anxious about all the movies we have to get through in our instant queue.

Are Romance Novels Responsible For Real-Life Sexual Problems?

I’ve long held romantic comedies, TV shows, and romance novels responsible for real-life romantic problems. No man will actually make you feel like a woman with his passionate embraces and burning loins, then cook you a four-course dinner before he rushes off to perform heart surgery on orphans.

Well, apparently that is not the only problem romance novels cause. It turns out wishful hoping for a romp in bed akin to Dr. Trent Blackjack, Esq.’s throbbing member is influencing real-life sexual problems for some women, according to a report in The Journal of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care.

The UK’s Guardian didn’t give us specific examples, but perhaps they were just being British about it. Keep reading »

Keeping The Romance Alive

File this under ways to keep the romance alive with your S.O.

Other times he’ll hold me by the neck in front of the pyramids. But there’s nothing we like more than nearly kissing each other near some horses,” says Alex. Yes, horses are terribly romantic. I wonder if they recreate what’s inside the novels too? See more of their photos here. [Oli and Alex] Keep reading »
