Today’s topic comes from QSFer Beth Brock: “Why do straight girls like gay romance?”
Let me preface this by saying I’m talking about readers here, not the thornier topic of women writing MM romance or erotica.
I’ve often wondered what it is about MM romance that interests heterosexual female readers – although, to be fair, straight guys seem, well, let’s just say “interested” in FF erotica and porn.
So my question today – what is it about MM romance that draws straight female readers (whether it’s fantasy, sci fi, paranormal or other)?
Keep it friendly, people. :)
