Can guys write romance fiction…that women would want to read?
I wrote a long comment to a post by Forbidden Writer. He wrote about the challenges a male erotica writer faces in writing a woman’s POV and erotica that appeals to women in effective and believable ways.
Forbidden Writer’s post is here,On Female Perspective. Much of my response is encompassed below.
My response to a man writing a female point of view and writing erotica that arouses and speaks to women is this:
I make a beeline for decent erotica and erotic romance written by men. I specifically BUY their work (and devour it) just like I do writing by women.
By erotic romance I mean the very popular genre novels that are mainly written and read by women and are some of the top-selling eBooks. There are few male writers that advertise or admit to writing these.Men may be writing under female or gender neutral pen names…
