Old Skool.

I was chatting with my author friend Penny Watson about a link author Amarinda Jones posted over on her own website, and I realized something.  I’m no prude, but I am old school.  I want romance with my sex, not porn, not incest, not barely legal boobalicious babes gettin’ it on with they step-daddies.  Eww.

Ya’ll read what you want.  But honey, ain’t ‘nuf Benjamins in the entire world to get me to cross over.  Mmm-mmm.

    I’m a romantic, I need romance too.

  2. Incest, such as I read in the above link’s link, by any name is creepy. Some say romantic erotica is porn for women. I believe “they” say it stimulates the same areas of the brain as visual porn does for men.

    I don’t have one of those handy medical scanning devices handy while reading so can’t say.

    I’m OLD SKOOL and proud! I need romance, I like a great sex scene that is emotional and intense, but the bottom line (pun intended?) is that poorly-written, porno sex scenes are not sexy. Who the hell needs that?

    Come home to me, candles lit and large glass of red ready on the side ….. then I get a cuddle after I’ve fed her

  5. Sounds sweet, Tom. You’re one of the good guys!

  6. I do too, Penny. I like a great sex scene that is emotional and intense – could not have said it better. I want that emotional involvement, it’s part of the attraction.

  7. Steph, better buy one of those scanners and then you can have a new rating system on your site!

  8. Me too, Amber. It’s why I began writing romance.

    When I read sex scenes there has to be a romantic connection between the characters. I don’t like the idea of incest or porn in a book. I like the romance of it all (: I am fairly young but it still doesn’t interest me. If the characters aren’t in love, falling in love, or there isn’t something emotional between them then I don’t like reading it because then it’s just sex which isn’t meaningful to me.

    I checked those links. Ick. Shudder.

    I see nothing wrong with porn geared toward females. That said, I don’t read it and have not the slightest interest in it. I can’t say I really understand the draw, especially for the nasty stuff. Are we sure women are the primary readers? I like sexy books, but I’m really Old Skool in that I enjoy the tease, the delayed gratification and the delicious frustration of old-fashioned romance novels. Kathleen Windsor, anyone? Daphne du Maurier? Or have I just launched myself TOO far back in time?

  11. Hi Jaye. Women have as much right to porn as men. Provided no one is exploited in the making of the porn. That’s my view. However, this incest theme that seems to be popular over at ARE right now is very much not my cup of tea. Ick is right.
    I love the feeling of anticipation good romance writing engenders. No, you don’t date yourself, but I have to be honest, I didn’t read my first ‘romance’ (aside from Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and Little Women) until 2007.

  12. Yes, Kayla, you are too young for that nasty stuff! Ewwww! I do need an emotional connection otherwise the relationship has no meaning. When it comes to romance, context is everything for me.

    Romance is our brain engaging in the sensual and sexual experience. Without our brains, we are just dumb animals. Romance is engaging the entire person…. I think that is better.

  14. Thank you, Keith. Thanks for coming by and commenting.
