Is Passionflix the next step in the evolution of Intellectual Porn?

In recent years the popularity of romance genre, or intellectual porn, has skyrocketed. This was helped both by best-sellers such as Fifty Shades of Grey and the introduction of the e-reader, which made novels more accessible, cheeper and easier to disguise; especially in the early days when the genre wasn’t as widely socially accepted. The increase in the volume of choices, with the ease in which e-readers made self-publishing also spurred the genre.

The past year has seen another change within the genre, as audiobooks have become more and more popular. Authors such as Kristen Ashley have even published novels exclusively within the format. Audiobooks are great for readers who have long commutes to work, are able to listen while working or those who are not able find the time to read, but still want to indulge in sexy stories.

Film and television adaptation is not a novel idea, but an entire streaming platform devoted only to romance and the H.E.A. is. In my view the Hallmark Channel doesn’t enter into the equation, since they don’t exclusively stream content and their reputation is for clean and wholesome. Something many of best-selling romance novels are not!

What is Passionflix?

Passionflix is a production studio and streaming platform. They are dedicated to turning their favorite romance novels into movies and series, as well as offering the romantic classics we all love!

Novels in production:

Speaking as an author, the thought of seeing your love story played out on the screen is very exciting! I can only imagine how the other authors are feeling. As a reader and lover of the genre, I’m just as excited to watch my favorite heroines and heroes love stories unfold before my eyes.

There are so many questions I can’t wait to be answered, such as:

  1. Will the naughtiness (sex) I love about these novels be included, and how will they keep it from being too “porny”?
  2. Will these films take on the female gaze for once, as apposed to the male gaze we’ve suffered through for decades?
  3. How will the alpha males we all love translate on the screen, without turning into assholes?

I am eagerly anticipating the launch of this service, but only time will tell if Passionflix is heralding in a new era of telling sexy love stories.
