When I started writing ménage + (poly, group, pick your name for this subgenre) I found it was a lot easier than I expected. So much fun!! But I wasn’t sure about making the guys bisexual. Some people say bisexuality is a stop on the road to being gay. So are there that many bisexual men around?? Is it believable? Sure, erotic romance is a lot of fantasy fun in there, but mine aren’t paranormal or futuristic…it’s contemporary America. Wouldn’t it be fun to have three or four hot men to play with? Obviously in fiction, we can control that.
For instance, in my Lucky Springs series…there are a lot of them—some of the men are bisexual and some aren’tJ
But in reality…I wondered. So I asked some of my gay male friends aged 20s thru 50s. Some were open to the idea. Younger men especially had no problem with the idea of someone being flexible (even though all I spoke to were strictly gay by their definition). Some did believe bisexuality was just gay in denial. But my favorite guy who loves to talk about hot books told me the most thought provoking truth about this.
He said that so many people like to do so many freaky things….role playing, dress up, kinky pain stuff, and wild fetishes (like latex as one example)….that bisexuality was really boring by comparison.
Lol. I never thought four men and one woman in a bed was boring but compared to some lifestyles, it’s fairly benign. Rock on Lucky SpringsJ the series will continue well into 2012…
