Four writers for the price of one blog
The explanation of this little flash is probably longer than the piece itself. It came out of a little discussion Will and I were having about the preferences of men and women in erotica. We both know that there’s a huge spectrum in tastes and preferences, but sometimes it seems that there are predominant differences in perspective. There’s the whole “visual vs. sensual” contrast, for example. Again, never universally true, but common enough to often make us think “women are X way, men are Y way”.
I have favorite erotic fiction from both men and women, though mostly women. One thing I noted that women writers can tend to spend more time on setup and background less on ‘action’ (which could be considered a stereotypical male term to begin with). Will pointed out from his interactions that some women found the ‘action’ in male-authored or male-voiced stories to be tedious. I cracked a joke in response to that, which resulted in this.
By the way, what do you, dear reader, think?
