Are You In the Mood for Sex?
Wow, what the??? Yeah, I know, but it got your attention, right? *grins*
Okay, so why the question…it’s all about the mood you’re in when you read super-charged sizzling erotic romance and the many different sub-genre choices.
I love reading erotic romance, any sub-genre of it, but there are times when I have to be in a certain mood for some of them in order to fully enjoy it.
Paranormal, such as shifters, ghosts, psychic stuff, witches, vamps, I can read pretty much anytime. Same for Contemporary, Historical, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy - you get the picture.
But what about the addition of BDSM (bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sadism, masochism), or M/M (male with male), F/F (female with female), or M/F/M (ménage with two males and one female or two females and one male or three same sex), or group sex – including sex toys, voyeurism, anal play, oral sex, or any position sex? Whew!
For me, it’s usually a sleepless night that calls me to read something different…more or less something I’ve not personally experienced but would vicariously. I’m curious and love to create with that in mind, and I love to read with that in mind also.
It can be a real turn on, or it can be a ‘you’ve got to be kidding me’ – I’d have to try it to believe it. (LOL) My mood has to be in an open-mind frame (in other words, my mind isn’t turning over lists of things to do tomorrow), my curiosity is high, and I’m willing to explore the possibilities through story-stars and an author’s expertise in writing the story.
What can I say…sometimes I’ve had too long of a day, I’m worn out and reading something challenging for me just isn’t in the cards…but, I would definitely turn to something curiously hot, different from my norm, and find joy and pleasure in exploring it ;)
So, what is your mood for reading sexually explicit stories? Do you have a certain frame of mind when you read an erotic romance? Is curiosity part of your draw to open the pages?

One Plus One Excerpt ~
“Lacinda Gainesly,” a steward called her name. She saw the sign he held with her name printed in bright purple. She slipped on the first step leading down onto the ship and stumbled past the steward. The sign dropped from his fingers and his arms latched around her body from behind. His quick reflexes saved her face from biting the deck, but his hands cupped both of her breasts and squeezed. Lacinda threw her elbow back into his side.
“Hey, a little respect for the guy who saved your life.”
Lacinda shrugged out of his grasp. She met his gaze and realized this was the same man who picked her up from her hotel in a long black limo, only then he was dressed in black instead of the white uniform he now wore.
“You’re the driver.”
“I’m a lot of things, like possibly a hero.” His eyes looked as happy as his lips.
She noticed his smile, the same he shared earlier when he asked her questions about why she took the cruise quiz. Lacinda thought he was simply a driver for the cruise company so she shared some of her story. He knew about Alex dying in a car crash on the way to their wedding. She searched her memory for anything else she might have shared which could embarrass her later.
“Alas fair maiden, your chambers await your timely arrival,” he said, faking a British accent. He held his gloved hand out. Lacinda refused it.
“I’m ready for my quarters.” She needed relaxation, maybe take a nice hot scented bath and get prepared for the swing of things, anything to distract her from the past that never left her alone.
“As you wish, my lady,” he said, again with a British accent. The steward turned, led her across the deck, and down a stairway. She saw men and women following other stewards or each other. Once on board everyone began mingling, even flirting, judging by the tinkling female laughter and deep manly chuckles.
“There will be an announcement left under your door regarding tonight’s dinner seating arrangements. May you enjoy your day and make sure you take time for a relaxing massage. There’s always a masseuse available. Their extension is listed beside your phone. You’ll find your room key there as well.”
Lacinda followed him down a narrow hallway until he stopped in front of a door with an elegantly scrolled number 216.
“This is you. May I answer any questions before I go?”
Lacinda dug in her purse for a tip. Clueless on how much was appropriate and not wanting to give him anything. He got his gratuity when he copped a feel of her breasts.
