Oh Too Amusing

Paperback Writer has a post up about the top myths perpetuated in romance novels. Far, far too amusing. But then again, romance is a 'fantasy' genre and it even says as much in Harlequin's guidelines.

Actually in response to PBW's myth #4 Harlequin states that protection is not necessary if it interferes with the narrative or bogs down the prose -- because it's a fantasy, not because they're trying to undermine all that safe sex stuff we were (hopefully) taught in school.

Highly Recommended
