The other day I saw a guy at the MRT reading a Nora Roberts book. I was surprised because the guy does not look effeminate to be dabbling in romance. But then I remembered that Nora Roberts also writes as J. D. Robb so the guy could be reading a book from that series.
And then a comment made by an ex-colleague of mine suddenly came to mind. He said romance books are actually a form of soft porn. And in a way, I think it is true. Most of the romance books now describe intercourse in so much detail and they were embedded like an integral part of the book.
Some of the content sometimes makes me edgy while reading in public. Like someone might be reading behind my back and suddenly realize that my book contains soft porn. Funny. Some women try to avoid reading romance books in public to avoid being branded as shallow.
At times, I would skip through the ‘pornographic’ content and just proceed to the next ‘normal’ part of the book.
Most of the books can do without it but maybe the authors are trying to make the romance book more real.
It did make me wonder though if the guy reading the Nora Roberts book was reading it because he likes romance or if he likes ‘romance’.
