A week or so ago, Publishers Weekly posted an article about erotic romance. I gave my definition of erotic romance and that is a romance wherein sex is the source of the conflict. Maya Banks and Joey Hill come to mind. Other people view erotic romance based on the numerosity or type of sex involved. Erotica and erotic romance is often conflated, in my opinion. A single character’s sexual exploration is erotica to me or even parallel character exploration of sex is erotica if the focus of the story is not on the development of the relationship. What’s your opinion. (I apologize for the inartful nature of the answers in the poll. I wasn’t quite sure how to craft those).
