So last week I asked if kinky was the new black. Now at the time BDSM got mixed up with kinky which is a bit of a misnomer. While BDSM tends to be kinky, kinky doesn’t always mean BDSM. Just so we’re clear on all of that!
But moving on … what’s going to be the new trend in m/m do you think? We all love this genre, we read it, write it, devour it, discuss it and take it apart in incredibly minute detail. So we must have some kind of insight in what will become the next big thing right?
Do you think it’ll be the marriage of convenience like Jenre talks about here. Or perhaps infidelity will become the new talked about taboo subject or will we see an increase in rapes in romance? Will the new favorite trend be astral projection (as I’ve read 2 books and seen a movie on it all within the same month). I’ve heard rumblings about more virgins in fiction. Will the big condom debate of last year fade away into “who cares?”
We will always have the classic favorites that never go out of style: werewolves, friends to lovers, buckets of angst, and the 1-2-3 finger sex with handy towels which will never leave. But what do you think the next “big” thing will be in gay fiction?
