Let me tell you about this new site I've found: Erotica Cover Watch. It's a blog by Mathilde Madden and Kristina Lloyd, two erotica authors who are up in arms about the lack of hot men on the covers of erotica books. Apparently, unlike in erotic romance, erotica publishers won't put hot men on the covers of their titles because they think it will turn off male customers. What about women erotica customers? For that matter, what about underwear advertisements, as ECW commenter Samantha so aptly points out.
To do something about it, they've formed a movement: Banish Inequality on Covers in Erotica, Porn and Smut! Otherwise known as BICEPS. If you blog, and you support gender parity in sexualized imagery, as Friskbiskit does, you can join them and get this nifty graphic for your sidebar:
Coming Tomorrow: Every week, ECW hosts Man Candy Monday, where they post pics of hot men to prove that guys can be sexy too (duh), and they invite other bloggers to participate. Stay tuned for Friskbiskit's contribution to the cause.
