Well, I admit that I prefer my sweaty-naked reading to be actual pornish
stuff, rather than stuck in the middle of a book that is supposed to be
*about the plot*! At Book Expo several years ago I discovered the modern
romance genre described as 'Romantica' (romantic erotica, I guess) and
gravitate to that for my covert reading. Given the inherent ridiculousness
of descriptions of human sexual gyrations, especially those that try not
to be erotica, I find the blow by blow (NO PUN INTENDED, thank you) rather
distracting even from romance.
