The article was on Niche erotica and appealing to the masses, written by Selena Kitt.
I love niche erotica - for varying reasons, one its the spice of life, two you are exploring different aspects of the sexual relationship, and three its fun to experiment - both with the. . . erm. . . research and portraying it to my readers. Plus, they allow me to delve into my own fantasies to a depth I sometimes haven't before.
For example Deep is based on many series of rape fantasies I have had since discovering sexuality. Well, even before I understood I was discovering it, before I even know what a clit was, or that the term pussy also meant a woman's parts.
I knew going into this particular niche that I would need to be careful and respectful of actual rape - I have friends that have been too closely involved to their own scenerios be insensitive to it, and that while I had to draw a firm line showing that I do not condone rape, it had to be powerful and link back to my fantasy in a strong fashion. Because lets face it - if you fantasize about it someone else does too.
