Romance novels can be as addictive as pornography - ksl.com
I saw this on twitter when a friend posted it a few days ago and I thought it would make a good topic. When I read this post I was left saying where in the world did they study this at? I have been reading romance and erotic romance books for over 4 years now and most of you how may books I can put down in a year. Last year it was almost 300 and let me tell you I never feel this way and I know I read the right stuff, so I guess my brain or body doesn't function right LOL. But I don't look for the sex in the books I look for a good connection and good story line the sex is just an added bonus LOL
I did notice when Twilight came out and was such a big hit. I read on cafemom where women would post that they left their husband because he was no Edward I was like omg, please. I would say that no husband is or at least not mines, but I still wouldn't trade or leave him because he doesn't live up to the romance book standards, I don't read book for that reason. But the thing is this post is taking about porn and there no porn in the Twilight saga. I don’t read where women read a regular romance book leave their husband because he wasn't up to the romance standards.
Because romance novels provide a perfect escape during tough times.
Now, this statement is what is most interesting just because the sales are increasing it means women are getting off on romance books. I don't think so. It means time are bad and we need an escape what better cheap way then reading a book and forgetting our troubles, but they want to pin it on porn WHATEVER! I think they need to study why we are having these bad times and finding ways to make jobs instead of worrying on what women are reading and if they are getting off on it. I never did see where it say in the post on how many women left their husbands because of this or did I miss it?
So what's your take on Romance novels can be as addictive as pornography's post?
I for one will not stop reading so called porn for women as they call it and I of I have anything to do with it I will help the sales go higher next year LOL.
