Don't give me a "damsel in distress", or some weak, naive, submissive idiot-I prefer: A Female lead who is strong, independent, a self assured woman who stands up, NOT kneels. If I want to read about women being submissive I'll browse the history section of the library (where books like that belong!) And stop giving me women who go through trauma/abuse and "become strong". Women don't have to suffer in order to be strong you know. I like well written erotica (note WELL written), however I much prefer books that make me think.
If you can't stimulate my brain, you deserve no other part of me.
I have a degree in mortuary science and I'm not afraid to use it.
