Female Sexuality and the Role of Erotic Romance

Killing June by May Bridges

Today we're thrilled to welcome May Bridges (Killing June) to Heroes and Heartbreakers.

May is here today to talk about society's expectations and how romance places a role in it all. Thanks, May!

Wild Women Do And They Don’t Regret It…

Yes, I do have Natalie Cole lyrics and visions of scenes from Pretty Woman running through my head right now—but on to books! I love when I find pieces of myself in the books I read. Finding something that connects you to a character, something that is fiction imitating reality, pulls you into a book that much more. Over the many years of reading romance I’ve found a common theme in many of them, one that is growing in popularity. It’s the idea of a woman finding a man she can express herself with in a sexual way, a way that perhaps only that man would understand. It’s the journey of her getting to live out her deepest, darkest fantasies, and finding a partner who loves and accepts her for those desires, not despite them. It has opened the door to more books with BDSM and S&M themes. As I look around our society, it doesn’t surprise me this has become a popular book trend. The amazing thing about books are that they can strip away social expectations and misconceptions, and allow us to look at the lives the characters live with fresh eyes.
