In watching it I was reminded of the Bieber and Mariah Carey song (All I Want for Christmas is You) which, despite my being an Erotic author sorta weirded me out. Why I wondered would something like that bug me? I think in the end it was partly the director's fault, the total clashing of styles, I think its his sweet innocence and Carey's predatory over-the-top sexuality that really made me go "eww" in the Christmas piece, that and he also seemed to be bothered, even embarrassed, by it.
Now, I have no issues with Nicki and Justin singing and playing together in this one (Beauty and the Beat) even with the little "grinding" dance they do, for some reason it seems more fun and playful. Even with the line "Buns out, weiner, but I gotta keep an eye out for Selena" who was dating Beiber at the time. . .
As erotic authors where do we find our boundaries? Where do we draw our lines? My two newest pieces:
Madly Deeply, and Hate Loving You are two books that I toed my own personal lines with.
Madly Deeply: A Fifth Rape Fantasy, pushes my comforts with trying to determine where the fantasy ends and rape begins, my editor encouraged the darker piece, in fact it was pushed darker twice. Micah is taken over by his alternate personality Evan. So the line hovers, is this the man that Alysson loves or in his comprising situation is she being taken by someone else? When she says her safe word and he doesn't respect it is he pushing her boundaries or is he actually taking her against her will? As an author particularly driven by her story the piece ended up being what it needs to be. Will my readers like it or will they be angry at me? I don't know, but I'm excited to see.
