We’re going mainstream now!
Porn and erotica on Oprah? How fabulous! I was at work today and unable to watch the show, but I’m picking up great coverage on twitter and the blogs – thank you, Oprah, for recognizing what women increasingly are bold to claim for ourselves: the full range of our sexuality, freedom to read and watch what turns us on, and dreams (or better) of sharing it with our partners. Here’s a quote from Chicago Examiner coverage of the segment: “Something’s going on in bedrooms across America,” Oprah says. “It has been reported that 1 in 3 consumers of online porn in our country are now women.”
Over on Oprah’s page, there’s a beginner’s guide to the five things you need to explore your sensual side, put together by Kari Kriser and Cheryl Sloane, co-owners of Chicago’s G Boutique. Are you ready? The items are (1) lingerie, (2) sex toys, (3) lubricant, (4) adult videos and – keep scrolling – Yes! #(5) is erotic books! They even advise (as both halves of Adriana so often do) “Read them out loud to your lover. It can be so stimulating.”
Our only suggestion? Add e-books to the list of print books – especially since Oprah’s come out in support of the Kindle reader. Twelve of our erotic romance titles are currently available in Kindle format at Amazon.com , with many more to come. A perfect holiday present for the lover in your life!
