You know the one’s mama warned us about, until of course you find mama reading one of her erotic romance novels with those very men as the heroes. Even better is when he’s not just bad, but fanged and fab-u-licious to boot. So why is it ok to enjoy these dangerous hunks in books?

I mean you have to admit, there is something about the danger and titillating effect of eroticism that the promise of uninhibited sex that really gets the engines roaring when they come wrapped in a lip-smacking package of hunk-a-licious, doesn’t it?  But surely there has to be something more than just the hot money sex that keeps us interested right? …(Ok wait I can’t stop laughing at my own question). 

Maybe it’s just the fact that we like our heroes with a little more bite to them? The unknown can be pretty exciting, and it does give us an avenue to step out of our regular everyday hum-drum lives that drive us to seek excitement in the dark and dangerous world of the paranormal erotic romance. Maybe something about succumbing to those inner desires we just can’t allow ourselves the luxury of chancing, except in our books is also exciting  as well as safe too. I mean it’s certainly better than the old commercial for "Calgon, take me away!" where a bar of soap, and a bath can take us away for all our chaos in our lives. Between you and me there was a whole lot more going on in the bath than just a bar a soap. If you’re too young to remember that well Google it. I don’t have the time to get into it.

Why does the Big Bad Wolf still scare and yet fascinate us still today?  There are all kinds of sexual references that showing the anthropomorphic wolf symbolizes as a man, who could be a lover, seducer or sexual predator. I mean there are alot of different versions of the tale, but I like the one where the wolf asks Red to take off her clothes and get into bed with him, and just when she does he eats her. (Whoa bummer, hope that one was about the sexual predator). There’s also the version when Red is just about to “give in” to the wolf the hunter rushes to her rescue, and save her from herself as well as that naughty wolf.  Maybe because Wolfy didn’t just want Red to surrender what was in her basket. He also wanted her to surrender to him. I like the one where the hunter and wolf both take an interest in Red.  What don’t tell me you never thought that might make an interesting tale? Deanna Wadsworth’s   Red Riding Hood, takes a spin around that park, and is a good example of some of the trouble you can get on the way to grandma’s house.  Oh my!!

The Big Bad Wolf fairy tales of yesterday have grown up, and maybe when it’s written in just the right way with just the right amount of paranormal added to the mix it also makes it easier to submit and enjoy when cloaked that way.

… between you and me I don’t really think Red was running away.  J
