Our Likes and Dislikes in Intellectual Porn

We thought it might help our readers to know what we like and do not like in our intellectual porn. When we read a novel these are the things we look for.

Symbol_thumbs_up.svgWhat We Like:

  • HEA, happily ever afters with marriage and babies. This is a must.
  • We enjoy most genres, and their is nothing we won’t try, but our top three favorites are Highlander, Motorcycle Men, and Kick Ass Commandos (which we will have to dedicate a month to).
  • We typically love alpha males, who are a little dominant and possessive, but in reality their women is in control, even if it is with a safe-word.
  • The female characters must be a little sassy, and women we actually would want to be friends with, if they were real. The true test is if we can even remember their names.
  • We enjoy novels more when we get the male’s perspective. They are such complexing beings, we like to know what they are thinking.
  • We like our male leads to have a life based in reality, where they have actual professions, are hard working… cops, doctors, detectives, professors, soldiers, commandos, artists, lawyers, business owners, werewolf kings, etc.
  • We like when the lovers have a deep friendship, along with wicked hawt kicky sex.
  • We like a novel with a good amount of hotness, needing us to take a cold shower when done.
  • We like novels where the supporting cast, adds a bit of humor and fun to the story. Especially when we fall in love with them too and want them to get their own novel.
  • As hard working ladies who have actual careers, we appreciate a novel that is reasonably priced. If Lydia’s husband only knew how much she spends on intellectual porn. 😀

What We Dislike:

  • Thumbs-down-iconWe are instant gratification people, who hate cliffhangers. Or when the couple does not get together until the last 5% of the novel.
  • We love a sexy story, but there has to be a plot to go along with the hotness, otherwise it is just porn without the intellectual.
  • We like our alpha males, but not ones who are on the side of asshole alpha.
  • We do not enjoy characters and plots that are not believable, or are on the side of ridiculousness. We like our fantasy but rooted in reality, people are people no matter what situation you put them in.
  • We do not support relationships that are emotionally abusive and completely dysfunctional, I’m looking at your Christian Grey! We are all for Dom / sub relationships as long as they are “safe, sane, and consensual.”
  • We do not enjoy novels were the main couple is constantly breaking-up and getting back together. Find another plot device to move the story along. We like our conflict to come from an outside source not the couples relationship.
  • We do not like main characters, mostly women, that waffle, make up you mind already!
  • Woman you want to bitch slap!
  • We do not like when the sex is boring, missionary is well and good, but not throughout the entire novel. Please get creative, there is a plethora of educational material out there for you to enjoy.
  • A lot of typos and grammatical errors. It is distracting and bloody annoying!

Happy Reading!
