Blog of a Bookslut | I hadn’t really thought about the lack of normal bodies in erotica until last night.
I guess I just assumed because it’s erotica and in book form, it would be a bit smarter than the average porn. Plus it’s called erotica. So sexy, so smart. And I just glossed over the fact that inevitably all of the bodies I read about were firm and slender or bouncy and smooth. I hadn’t yet read anything that said, “A 33-year-old woman who nursed her kid had the slamminest tits I’d ever seen.” Of course, if I did read that, I might have an aneurysm out of pure joy.
And then, last night, I was reading Rachel Kramer Bussell’s newest anthology, Spanked: Red Cheeked Erotica. Bussell is, hands down, my favorite sex writer. She’s just wonderful. And I was very excited to read this anthology, even if spanking is not my thing, maybe it could be because Bussell always portrays sex as delicious, wonderful, and fun.
