Why do we like Menage Stories?
Why do we like Menage stories….So this trend of ménage based erotic romance stories has been really hot lately, and I have to admit I’ve been bitten by the group love bug. To be fair, I have actually lived in a ménage relationship in the past, but I currently have a monogamous one with my spouse. So clearly I already know what the benefits are of this kind of grouping. Besides the obvious-multiple men focused on one woman making her feel like she is the center of their world-there are a few other things that appealed to me personally.
First of all I will point out the elephant…er…stud in the room. (hee hee) The sex. Yep, it’s good. Like I said women are attracted to the idea of having men focused on her, and her needs. Just like a submissive is focused on her Dom’s pleasure, and vice versa, the members of a ménage have to be focused on each other completely. With more members in the group, there is more to feel, do, and enjoy.
Although, it’s maybe not always as amazing as in the books I write, it is an undeniably wonderful experience. I’ve had a few experiences with awkwardness, too. Who’s elbow was that? Crap, I have a leg cramp! Wait did you just snort during sex? A verbal debate over heads or Tails. Ultimately, I believe the more the merrier because everyone should have an orgasm daily. Let me just say that sexuality is just one piece of the relationship.
Secondly, I think that women are looking for multiple things in a partner, and so the idea of having two men (or more) who fulfill her every desire in a mate just sounds fantastic. You can have a bad boy who occasionally ignores you, but turns you on more than anyone else, while you also have a sensitive sweet man who wants to take you out to a romantic dinner and dancing just to make you feel special. *Side note, this is not going to happen but it’s a nice fantasy lol* You might find one man who is the perfect father for your offspring, and a woman who is the best friend you’ve always wanted. You might be able to have two men who are as in love with each other as they are with you, and everyone can be open and free in their love and sexual desires. It’s more about fulfilling the different qualities that we think we want in a mate, and this is a somewhat simple way to have your cake and eat it too.
Third, I think that there is a part of us that is scared of being alone. If we have more than one mate, then there is a better chance that if something happened to one, you wouldn’t be left alone. This is a little cooky, but honest. Grief is grief so if one of your partners was gone for some reason you would still be broken hearted-I know from experience-but it does better the odds of never being alone to have more than one mate.
So if it’s so good, why aren’t we all doing it? Well, duh! Not too many people can let go of their jealousy to be comfortable in a ménage. Consider how often self-doubt and jealousy impact a standard relationship, and multiply that by the number of desired partners. And then there’s the fact that a lot of our society hangs on to this idea of “real marriage” being between one man and one woman. Social norms tend to put people off unfortunately. I’ve never cared about social norms, as all of you loyal readers already know.
My book Fire of the Wolf (The Gray Pack 1) has a menage relationship between twin brothers who are werewolves, and the human destined to the their mate. Be sure to pick it up from Amazon if menage captivates you too…
