Romance Novels can Spice up your Life
Romance Novels can be looked down on, but the truth is that they can provide not only a great source of entertainment for millions of people, but also a therapeutic and healthy aid to women’s emotional and sexual well-being.
Statistics have shown that a romance novel is bought once every 5 seconds. That adds up to a lot of reading. There can be no doubt that romantic and erotic novels are very popular, especially with women.
Furthermore, those who claim that such books are merely worthless empty distractions are wrong. Therapists often encourage women to read romantic and erotic novels to increase their sex drive. The publication Psychology Today has reported that women who read such novels make love with their partners 74% more frequently than women who don’t.
Most women don’t like to admit they buy and enjoy these types of books, but the evidence is that there’s nothing to be embarrassed about.
Popular, widely read and good for you, romance novels should be seen as an excellent way of spending your free time. And with the connected lives we now live, it’s easy to download Erotic eBooks or order Romance Books Online, so there really is no excuse not to enjoy the pleasure these can bring.
So, what makes a good romantic novel? They generally follow a set format, which is standard for the genre. A relationship grows, perhaps there are difficulties to overcome, but love conquers all and the hero and heroine live happily ever after.
Variations on the theme can include historical settings (very popular) against which the love affair is played out, different types of obstacles that the couple have to overcome before their relationship can blossom, or even romance with a paranormal aspect such as vampires.
The level of explicitness and erotic content varies, but there is pretty much something for everyone.
A good romance novel should immerse you in the story from the first few pages. You should be able to escape your everyday life and enjoy the story line portrayed in the book. Fantasizing often plays an important part in the pleasure to be had from a good romance novel. You can imagine yourself in the place of the heroine and share in her emotional twists and turns as the plot develops.
The power of a romantic novel to stimulate sexual or erotic desires doesn’t necessarily come from explicit contents, but rather from skilful and sensitive descriptions of love and romance. It has been said that in the same way that men can be turned on by nude pictures in magazines, so women are stimulated by reading about an emotional love scene in a romantic book.
So do yourself a favor. Ignore the petty and misguided criticisms and enjoy the powerful pleasures of a good romantic novel.
