Why Do You Like to Read Menage?
My readers tell me that they want to read more menage a trois stories. Birthday Girl, my upcoming release from Samhain is a menage story. Maybe not in the traditional sense... Wait, is there a tradition for menage? In Birthday Girl, the chance for a threesome is the birthday gift Shannon's husband gives to her.
For Shannon, turning thirty means getting serious. Responsible. Old. She can’t help dreading the day she has to leave her spontaneous, crazy, young self-image behind. Then there are all those unfulfilled items on her to-do list, like that threesome she and her husband, Ty, used to fantasize about. It fell by the wayside, right along with their neglected bag of sex toys.
Her birthday dinner starts out like any other…then her present arrives at the table. Marc, an old college friend, whose edgy persona tickles her in all the right places. And that’s not all. Ty’s reserved a room at Paolo’s Playhouse—for all three of them.
By the time the playroom door closes behind them, Ty’s and Marc’s intimate touches and wicked whispers have roused her hormones to a fever pitch. But when kiss comes to nipple clamps, Shannon’s not sure she has the courage to step off the edge of fantasy and fall headlong into reality…
I can tell you why I like to read and write menage, but then I'd really like to hear from readers. Because when I write future stories, I'd love to touch on, as much as I can, the things my readers want to experience when they pick up a menage story.
One things I love about menage is the sense of the forbidden. Yeah, I guess I was one of those good girls who always wished I dared to be bad. Sex with two men at one time, yeah, pretty high up on the forbidden scale.
Then there's the chance to experience (at least vicariously) two men focused on their woman's needs. As Tyler says to Shannon, “You’ve said more than once that you wished I had more than one mouth. How wonderful it would be if you could have a mouth on your breasts and another between your legs at the same time. Remember?” Who can argue with that?
And of course, there's the emotional side of two men sharing the same woman. How can confusion and jealousy and need not get all mixed up with the desire and the amazing orgasms?
But I'd love to hear from readers who enjoy reading about threesomes. What does it for you? Why do you choose to pick up a menage story with all the other stories out there to read? Your answers may end up in my next story.
