Some comments are just too…too…too!

I do get the very occassional nasty comment. They are rare, actually. But considering what I write is pretty tame compared to, say, most literary fiction writers, it amuses me when a really good one comes along.

In responding to my post on writing erotica for men, Sinner, of Black As My Soul,  has written really good survey of the pieces of erotic lit that stood out in his mind, and a dissection of what made them good. Very worth your reading time. Erotica and What Men Want, One Man’s Theory
