So what am I talking about? Well I'm not going to directly quote, but this author searched romance and found 90% of them were erotica. Citing that this was strange and made no sense and heroines (in her opin) shouldn't wear dog collars.
Who is to say what a heroine should be? And why is is okay for other authors to put someone else down because they merely don't understand something, especially in a public forum where there are authors who write those books?
Everyone has a voice and personally I call myself a Romance writer. I think romance and sex go hand in hand. I'm crazy like that I guess. My Fantasy Encounter with a Dom follows a married couple struggling with their sex life, and Keira especially with who she is sexually. It is a HEA book.
Just my two cents and wondering why people need to always judge instead of just accept that we are different.
So I did decide to contact the moderator with:

Any post that brings info to people who requested it is valuable. If you aren't interested in a topic delete the emails.
I think I live in backwards world? Or maybe just a world where people should be treated with respect. Well alas, I wont be recommending this loop anymore. I get tidbits from it once in awhile but its makes my inbox swell mostly.
