Vibrators, dildos and cock rings, oh my. Are there enough in m/m romance? And why am I even thinking about this you ask? Umm, no comment. Anyway, I noticed that very rarely are there toys utilized in m/m romance books. Now the exception is BDSM books (of varying degrees) where toys seem to be a more integral part of the lifestyle, but with your typical vanilla romance they don’t show up very often. Why?
Is it because many of the stories are shorter covering from a few hours to a few weeks of a romance and you’re unlikely to pull out the big guns (dildos) on the first date? Is it because there is the school of thought that says you only get into toys when things get boring and dull and you need to spice it up and if you are truly in love you’ll never need them? Are they too naughty for nice boys and not “romantic” enough? Are they only for use when you can’t get the real thing? Do you wish there were more toys in your romance or are you content with the level you’ve found? Do you own any toys? (Just had to ask cuz I’m nosey that way. 😉 )
