So recently I was reading a book and at first glance it had me so excited!!!
DRAGONS!!!!! that was my initial thoughts when I first started the book. then I got BDSM and my heart and soul went OH… I continued on and I became so crest fallen. . Why does everything need to be about BDSM lately! Don’t get me wrong my nether regions clench at the thought of a good bdsm session. Oh my gosh, aren’t we just milking the cow a little too much?? I fear all this milking of the BDSM niche is turning it into Bull.
I get it. 50 shades of …… is the in thing but really? This isn’t the new twilight PEOPLE!. You remember when The book first became popular everybody and their uncle was writing about Vampires? everyone was like Zombie what is that? shifter you mean Jacob? The definition of Mc Dreamy became a vampire that sparkled and the girl next door became well the person who’s facial expressions rivaled that of a door mat.
Don’t get me wrong. We like what we like. But constantly trying to fit something in where it doesn’t belong is just wrong in my opinion. Seriously. No amount of imagination should think it’s okay to sully dragons by pairing it with something as trivial as sex. Now, Now, don’t get your knickers in a bunch. I’m not saying a little smut is bad. I mean from time to time we all look at those x-rated films or read those steamy one handed reads like The Book Signing by C.C. Genovese. However something as amazing as Dragons should be able to stand on it’s own without having to use sex to sell it.
Sometimes SEX sells and sometimes it just shows a lack of depth and creative whimsy. This is simply my opinion on the matter. Let me know what you think. Do you think that sometimes too much of a good thing is just that. Too much? Or do you welcome with open arms the watering down of something that is so much more than a quick sex scene?
