… I’ve been reading a lot of descriptors in m/m romance lately along the lines of ‘as thick as his wrist’.
This is something I’m used to seeing in het romance, but never really noticed how frequently it came up (nudge, nudge) in m/m work too until the last month or so.
I’m not talking about descriptions of guy bits and pieces in general cos this IS romance and readers expect to find out what’s going on in every sexy, if not flattering, detail. I’m talking about the seemingly massive proportions that some dicks take.
Perhaps I’ve been reading a lot of big Alphas/small Betas stories? Maybe I’m the only one who cringes when Mr Thick As His Wrist continues to pound Mr Fisting Fetish into the mattress everyday??
Who knows? Although I do know that this is something which has stumped other romance readers such as the marvellous Lisabea. Check out her post on the subject from 2007.
See. It’s not only me… this time.
