In 2009, I discovered erotic stories featuring gay men. Though I adore my male gay friends, I never thought I'd be turned on by a more detailed view of their lives behind closed doors.
I was wrong.
I saw ways to feature them in my "straight" erotica that was still (and always) positive while adding another layer to my story. The result was delicious. A few months later, I read an article about female authors who are starting to write gay erotica almost exclusively - and one of the biggest demographics who demand more and more of it are - wait for it - women!
Do you know someone who professes tolerance but makes a face if they see two men or two women kissing in public? I've known a lot of them in my life. What about the religious zealots who preach about hell and damnation then get got with a $20 male prostitute in a seedy motel? Yeah...hypocrite much?
My point is that we're naturally curious about anything differing from our day-to-day. I'm straight (for the most part...these days), and greedily absorb M/M erotica or menage erotica featuring M/W/M.
I read it. I write it. I love it. If you've never read it, don't dismiss it out of hand. If it's done well - I prefer sensual to raunchy - you'll get tingles on your tingles.
