There is a long-standing assumption about writers. The assumption is that, however unlikely, an author’s work must be, in some way, autobiographical. In my experience, this assumption is heightened with eroticists. After all, our work is inherently sexual and very often kinky, edgy or taboo. We write sexual fantasies with the express purpose of arousing the people who read them. Because of this, the perceived intimacy of autobiography, when it arises, can be particularly intense.

For most readers, this perception of intimacy is not an issue. They read a story, they enjoy the story, they move on to the next story. There is, however, a small minority of readers who crave access to the writer beyond the limits of the page. They want the personal connection they made with a story to extend to the author who wrote it.

Hi,

Page after sizzling page of slinky subs and hot doms, pushing each other’s buttons and playing power games… Just be careful you don’t overheat!

Superotica is the latest…

So, in case you were wondering, yes, superheroes do have sex. Often as not they have sex with the man-or-woman-on-the-street type that they’ve just rescued. Ugh! I know you’re thinking that smacks of exploitation, but it’s not, really. When you save someone, they frequently get a thing for you, you know, in the same way people get a thing for their doctor or their teacher. It would be mean, or just plain rude not to give them what they wanted, right? We’ve all been there: Superman, Catwoman, Kick-Ass…and me.
