The popularity of woman erotica is soaring. Most recently this genre has been given a boost by books like The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. In fact, Fifty is now the fast selling paperback of all time, surpassing Harry Potter.
I read all three books in the Fifty Shades trilogy and enjoyed each one. For me it was a great escape – turning off the brain which is like a mini-vacation. But, many women I talked to didn’t like it. They were very critical of the writing skills of Ms. James. Honestly, I don’t think she cares about the criticisms one little bit – - she is dancing a jig all the way to the bank.
Women reading erotica has become so popular that nearly 50 percent would rather read an erotic book than have sex themselves, according to a new poll.
A survey by online bingo site Dotty Bingo found 44 per cent of women preferred reading about erotic adventures of others over taking part in their own sex lives.
That’s a good news, bad new scenario. Yes, read, enjoy and fantasize but don’t forget to bring your fantasies back into your own bedroom. That’s where the fun really begins.
Of the 400 women polled – all aged between 25 and 50 - 43 per cent said books such as the Fifty Shades trilogy made their own love lives seem routine and boring.
They cited ease, a lack of energy and lack of imagination in the bedroom as reasons why their sexual encounters paled in comparison to sex scenes read about.
One respondent, who didn’t want to be named, said: ‘I’d much rather read about it then do it. It’s always exciting in a book and, the hero never rolls off when he’s finished and starts snoring without so much as a cuddle.’
One person who won’t be surprised by the results of the survey is the mother of two Erika Mitchell, 49, who wrote Fifty Shades trilogy using the pen name EL James.
