Who reads Bi Erotic Romance?
We do – and we write it, too! Hubs and I write erotic romance together under the pen name Adriana Kraft, and most of the heroines we write (well, and a hero here and there, too) are bisexual.
Last weekend we accidentally ran an informal poll on our website. For the Hot Summer Nights Blog Hope, we asked readers to tell us what kind of heat they liked best—just an open ended question. We didn’t say what categories to use. Here are the answers—a few readers listed more than one response:
11 – Anything. Many of these readers added things like strong characters, great plots, hot sex of any kind.
11 – M/M
9 – Ménage. Most of these readers didn’t specify what pairing they wanted in their ménage.
9 – Two men and one woman – readers who added comments in this category wanted the two men focused on the woman. If they used initials, they put the woman in the middle: M/F/M.
6 – BDSM
3 – F/F
2 – Two women and one man
1 – M/F
Of course this wasn’t scientific – it’s a self selected group of readers who like to win books and spend time leaving comments in a Blog Hop for erotic books.
Who on this list might like to read bisexual characters? I’ll go with the “anything,” the “ménage” and the two women and one man, at least. That means about half the readers who stopped by either like it or might be open to reading it.
Where do we fit in all this? I love the “anything” readers – they left comments like “I’ll try anything,” “characters that are hot,” “steamy sex in different positions.” We write lots of that!
Almost everything we write has ménage scenes. Most often these are two women and one man, and the women are definitely involved with each other as well as with the man. These are our bisexual heroines, the women we love to write and read.
There’s fabulous variety in the bisexual world, and our books reflect this. Some are a true polyamory story, with the love and romance unfolding among all three main characters. Sometimes two couples with bisexual women find each other and the ménage can be three-way or four-way. Some stories focus on a committed M/F pair who find a way for the woman to express her bi orientation, often through the Swing Lifestyle, sometimes with a Girls’ Night Out solution.
We’re writing what we love, and we’ll keep on delivering those steamy stories for readers who love the same things.
Coming This Sunday!
The sought-after Unicorn, so elusive in the Swing Lifestyle.
Now that Sarah Creston has materialized in Jen and Brett Andrews’ bed, what’s next?
It all seemed so simple: Sarah Creston would move in for the summer, Brett and Jen Andrews could revel in their new threesome, and everyone else would understand. But now Donna and Ryan – their best friends and lovers – won’t speak to them, and Jen seems so infatuated with Sarah that even Brett is worried about the consequences.
Battered from the double whammy of her husband’s death and caring for her aging parents, Sarah Creston thrills to Jen and Brett’s exquisite care and ravishing sex. Now that she’s had her first taste of a woman, will she be satisfied – or will she want more? Everything hinges on what Sarah wants.
