EXPRESSION OF THE EROTIC by Mary Corrales
What is it about erotic romance that is so freeing? We love to read stories of extremesensuality, but for those like myself who also write erotic romance there is an added element. Although I'm a self-confessed wallflower, I love exploring the boundaries of the erotic in my writing. I've come to realize what an empowering gift erotic romance has given women.
Reading erotic romance novels allows a woman to explore her own unique femininity in ways she might not ever think to do in real life. The stories consist of heroines who evolve as they explore their sensuality. So much of real life is about fitting into a mold that conforms to society's demands.
As mothers we nurture, as sisters we are confidants, as wives we are supporters but what are we as women? I have an associate's degree in psychology and have worked as a volunteer detention officer in a jail, yet I write stories of an erotic nature. I am a brain, an alpha female, and a creature of sensuality. My varied interests and attitudes combine to create a woman who most resembles a brilliant diamond with thousands of facets.
This is the truth of all women, including those who write and read straight romances. We are all sparkling diamonds. Erotic romance gives us all the opportunity to howl at the moon, laugh as we stand under a rainstorm, or simply scream. The depth of expression in erotic romance allows us to enjoy the intensity of life, whatever life may bring our way.
So then, what we are as women are lovers…lovers of ourselves and lovers to life itself. Never should a woman let opportunity pass her by to revel in the glorious sensuality of her existence. There is nothing more beautiful than seeing unfettered joy upon a woman's face, whatever the source.
Why do you read erotic romance? Are the characters someone you fantasize about being, or do they reflect your own passion for life? Either way, never forget to express yourself. Nothing is more precious than the way we sparkle with brilliance, gracing others with our zest for life.
