Threesomes are hot right now. Whether or not women are experiencing a ménage in real life, they certainly enjoy reading about them. For erotic romance, the most popular configuration for a threesome is, of course, male/female/male. After all, who wants to share her man with another woman?
Unless the story is pure erotica, most readers prefer a romance with their serving of trois. The emotional impact still needs to be part of the main relationship. Most erotic romance readers aren’t in it just for the sex...but the sex is certainly a yummy side dish.
So how can threesomes be romantic, emotional, and essential to the plot? In my story, SEX AND THE SINGLE PEARL, available from eRed Sage this month, the heroine’s subconscious desire for a ménage a trois stems from her insecurities about herself as a woman and her difficulty in giving up control. The hero, being the unselfish guy he is, wants to give the heroine the opportunity to let go, to hand over the reins of her sexuality to not one, but two gorgeous hunks, including him. How’s that for generosity?
I enjoyed writing the ménage scene in SEX AND THE SINGLE PEARL so much, I included another one in my story, APHRODITE’S FIRE, available from eRed Sage in the spring of ’09.
So what aspects of a threesome do you enjoy most? Don’t be shy. If it’s just the hot sex, that’s a definite plus to these stories! Finally, what would be your dream ménage? You and ??? and ???
