Erotica Authors Live Their Dreams, Survey Finds

Posted at 7:10AM Tuesday 03 Jun 2014

The Fussy Librarian website surveyed 103 erotica authors last month, and discovered they are as wild and crazy as the characters in their books. According to the Fussy Librarian, these authors are having more threesomes, practising more BDSM – 41% of erotica authors have given it a whirl, compared to less than 20% of Americans – and they just love doing it outside (84% of erotica writers have had sex al fresco, compared to 54% of Americans as a whole).
