Do the Dude: MFRW Blog Challenge Week 38


Do I do the dude?

If I didn't have the libido of a flat tire lying on the side of the road collecting dust, I would do the dude, because that is how I'm wired. But this isn't about my sexual orientation or my dead-in-the-water libido that I don't want to revive and would straight-up kill anyone attempting to resuscitate it.

The question for this week's MFRW Blog Challenge is:

Week 38: MM Books: write them? Read them? Why or why not?

The later books in the Carnal Invasion series have a lot of man to man action in them. I definitely write M-M.

Most of my M-M reading has been in the fan fiction department. And yes, I do ship the above ship. As a wise soul said, those guys do not have a brotherly vibe.

Regarding romance, I often like reading M-M romance better than M-F. It may be just as full of tropes and cliches, but to my untrained eye, they aren't quite as glaring. M-M seems more authentic.

So, the answer to this week's question is yes and yes.

  1. I care not which way the action swings. It needs to be well written and tropes need to concealed or at least not punching me in the face predictable.
    And I flatly refuse to read works where violence (sexual, physical, emotional) is painted as acceptable/justifiable. Other than that? Open slather.

  2. I laughed out lol'ed at your title! My writing start was also in fanfiction. One of may fave MM ships was Anne Rice's Louis and Lestat. Thanks for sharing!


  3. I also think Anne Rice's books are so very sensual, and for either gender. There's somehow something freeing about MM relationships over MF. Don't know what it is.

  4. I think the tropes are different in M/M romance. Plus there's the whole added "forbidden romance" ala Romeo and Juliet vibe--only now it's Romeo and Tybalt! Ponder on that for a while. LOL.

    And like one of your commenters said, I don't like pain with my sex. Just give me pleasure, please. Keep the scares and bloody mess to yourself.


I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
