As the temperature drops (here’s hoping) and cuffing season is officially declared open, the single among us might seek a little bit of company – and for those of us who wants to ride solo- a sensual read might be the right choice. Mainly because it requires almost no emotional investment and lots of pleasure. Romance continues to be best-selling genre in every field, be it movies or books and with good reason. People love to live that little fantasy for a few hours, jumping from relatable characters to interesting plotlines. A well-worded quote or action done by the main character can leave you with plenty of thoughts long after you’ve shut the book.
Most of our single hearts crave that magical romance appeal in real life and when left bereft (almost constantly) we turn to binge-watching Bridgeton on Netflix, or pulling an all-nighter reading a romantic saga (and more). We have all been guilty of the one more chapter greed and sleeping at 6 am. Slow burns or enemies to lovers, the romance book’s tropes might be as old as time but it continues to charm us. And while romance is great, we love ourselves some hot and heavy action. The main characters jumping into the sheets for a sweaty session has us wanting one for ourselves as well. After a long day, it’s time to slip into a lacy black number you’ve been saving for far too long and pour yourself a glass of wine. Let your fingers do the work while your mind conjures up graphic images of fictional men with the face of an angel and the demeanour of a devil. Honestly, it’s time well spent, much more than with that date who just won’t reply to your texts.
