How do you feel about sex? In books, that is! Now this post is not about your personal, intimate relationships—some things should be kept private—but it's primarily to discover what you, the reader, likes and expects in a paranormal romance/urban fantasy novel.
These days it's hard to find a book in any genre that doesn't include some sort of love scene in the story. It's almost expected. What do they say about sex selling? So, when I first began to write it was something of a dilemma for me. Should I, shouldn't I? How graphic should it be? Eventually I had to make a decision, for not only would strangers be reading my books, but my family - my new adult and adolescent nieces. Considering all this, I came to the conclusion that as long as the love scene was tastefully done, and enhanced the story and the relationship of the characters, I would include it.
I have two short, graphic sex scenes in each of my books. The first one is usually more explicit than the second. How much I include in my third book is still conjecture. Hopefully, this survey will give me an idea what you—my readers—would like to see.
So tell me. Do the poll, and have some fun.
