Perhaps I’m in the cuddly and romantic mood today. Yeah I know, me? Well even the wicked girl can had certain sweet and sultry desires and not just kinky. I have been having some rather fabulous conversations with some writers this week and we’ve covered every topic from spanking to handcuffs and this one kinda surprised me. Do you spoon with your significant other any longer? Now, if you have to ask what that is then I don’t know what to say to you. Spooning is where for me at least the guy wraps his body around you from behind and hopefully you’ll fall asleep together cuddling and touching.
Now I know what you’re thinking – it’s too hot, he snores, I can’t get comfortable, I won’t be able to sleep. UGH and STOP. Just think about when you were first together and you’d made love and had that sexy warm glow about you and all you wanted to do was to snuggle together for a little while, right? So why not now? Again – and I’ve said this about a zillion times – we all fall into a precarious trap with our love and our lovers. We no longer are lovers. That’s such a shame. There was nothing like spooning in the beginning and for a while I couldn’t fall asleep without being in the position.
I was trying to think about whether I’d ever put a spooning scenario in one of my pieces and you know what? I don’t think I have. We as writers can debate all we want about erotic versus sensuous romance pieces but the bottom line is there has to be romance or the reader is left flat. They want something sexy but also sultry and passionate. Don’t you as a reader? I don’t know. Perhaps I need to pen a piece about a wonderful night out on the town – the kind of old fashioned way. One of my favorite ideas in the world is a date situation where you dress up in the sexy red dress, he looks great in charcoal linen pants and you go out to a lovely jazz club where you have a wonderful dinner over a bottle of wine and gaze into each other’s eyes.
After sharing perhaps a little dessert together where you spoon feed each other that perfect slice of cake, you dance as the sultry blues singers grabs not only your attention by setting the perfect mood but also gives you the very reason to indulge and enjoy each other. A little kiss here and there and you build the anticipation. Then when you get home you can allow the sparks to fly or perhaps you simply lie on the couch together spooning. You kind of have to cuddle that way in order to be a bit intimate. Imagine his fingers lightly brushing down the length of your arm as you kiss and talk a little, pretend you’re at a vacation setting or simply have nothing else in the world to do.
Doesn’t that sound romantic? It’s funny, I used to read all the time – voraciously and I realized I don’t do enough of it any longer. I’m always writing or blogging or something related to the business of being an author and it’s about time I got back to reading. What I can tell you is that I’m like any other girl – don’t laugh. Okay? I tend to write either highly erotic or very gritty and brutal and yes I do enjoy reading those pieces as well but… I also enjoy reading about romance. I can tell you that the last very and truly romantic book I read was one by a favorite author and lovely friend of mine Jean Joachim. She does romance in spades. Her pieces are a perfect slice of what we all crave – something special.
So when I was talking with my author pals the other day I was thinking – romance isn’t dead, it’s buried in the pages of a wonderful book. Perhaps I need to make sure that I remind you about sensuous and soft and romantic and passionate and not just kink. Okay, don’t worry – not going soft on you but… I have many sides to this wicked girl and I have some reasons to want to be a little softer. So…do me a favor, take a moment and imagine a wonderful night together and whatever you do tonight – it is Saturday after all – end the lovely evening with spooning. I can tell you there is nothing better in the world to fall asleep with – having his arms around you, holding you tightly and whispering into your ear. Well?
