Would there ever be a love story from the point of view of a
man that woman would watch and react to like a regular love
story or Rom-com?
Regular men do not define love in the way women do.
Romantic novels, love stories and Rom-coms would not work if they where written for men.
I think it would be just a short story intermittent with nudity, drinking partying and porn.
Like in movies, I seem to think that a sex scene would not really take that long in a romance novel for men unless you get heavy into the Erotic foreplay like Anais Nin.
Even then it still is based on how fast you read it. It's like seeing foreplay in a porno and fast forwarding to the good parts.
I have a good imagination but when it comes to sex I am more visual/physical.
I can understand how housewives and underage women can get into romantic novels that slather on the romance and foreplay to the point where sex in those books are more of a descriptive gang bang. Since there are so many factors that fill a romantic novel, I felt I should try writing a scene explaining myself albeit from a women's point of view:
It was a dark night.
The cold air ran down my back. Every hair in my body stood up as I looked out into the sea. The salty air filled my lungs. I start to walk along the coast, when I notice a dark hooded figure in the distance. I stop and stare at the hooded figure with curiosity and fear. My heart is racing. I can no longer hear the waves crashing against the shore.
The hooded figure removes his cloak... my heart stops.
It is a man like no other. A Adonis.
His body appeared as if it where crafted by a Greek god.
A rush of blood fills my cheeks and runs down my body. I feel a burning in my loins. The Adonis signals towards me. What will I do. I know I must run, but every part of my body makes
me move forward. Every step makes me moist with passion. Yes!,no,Yes!,no,Yes!,no,Yes!......
The moon shines off his perfectly chiseled abs. He looks at me like a wolf waiting for his prey. I stop in front of him, gazing into his eyes as I hesitate to touch his chest. My breasts swell in anticipation of his touch. His gaze has me hypnotized.
With a firm tone he tells me to turn around and close my eyes. I could not stop myself. He moves my hair as I feel his hot breath on my neck. He caresses my belly, as he slowly runs his hands down my thigh.....
Now I just wrote that in a couple of minutes.
I have Never read a romance novel. The closest I have gotten is seeing a cover of an open shirt Fabio holding a woman on the beach at night looking passionately into his eyes under moonlight. (I just made that up too.)
It would have a sexy name like. "Midnight Passions" or "Stranger at the Beach".
I also have to note that I am not a writer, novelist or anything like that, hell there must be tons of orthographic and grammatical errors in this whole piece. And I do not pretend to know anything about a women's Physique, for I am not a woman. This is merely my heterosexual male opinion and I mean no disrespect (but with a shave and a haircut I could probably pass for a fat butch lesbian...think of Chaz Bono but cute...and Latino) ( and no offense to actual lesbians).
Now in that short excerpt I haven't even got to the sex and I am pretty sure that some, if not all women who read it could close there eyes and imagine themselves in that situation.
Like some woman have rape fantasies or just having that moment where they give in to the passion of being taken. They submit to that animal instinct that most women hate men for. (Where all dogs, I know.)
Now a better writer than I, could easily write a scene that can fill a women's imagination and spark that tingly sensation not only in their hearts but there genitals. Some just by reading that scene could easily blush, feel hot, flustered or even a little wet.
Most men would really read this and get mad cause the guy ain't getting to the point or they use the same moves or better ones and most would get bored.
Seeing it written down is like hearing someone describe how there going to throw the ball to you before they throw it, but in a literal way.
They would describe how the mind will send a signal......blah,blah......muscle will contract to grasp the ball......blah,blah.....blood flow rushes through the finger tips to twist the ball......(haha that sounded kinda sexual....but I digress)
A man would just throw it. It's more instinct than a thought. Even though there was thought behind it, that thought doesn't disrupt the action.
And reading it only prolongs the inevitable.
That scene is written from the man's point of view would not sound appealing to women. Let alone a whole book filled with that. (Don't ask , I am not gonna write it. Just imagine and take in mind that a man thinks very differently from a woman.) (Eww, Nasty!)
Woman are verbal. It's mostly about how they feel. A romance novel for a woman can fill more than 500+ pages.
A man's version of a romance novel could fill a comic book, because we are visual. We are more analytical. We are more to the point.
With the amount of pages of a women's romance novel we could make multiple hard cover graphic novels of a man's version. Probably make it into a paperback after the first three prints have sold out.
I kinda lost myself there. Now where was I ?????
¿Could they make a Rom-Com, Love Story or Romance Novel from a man's point of view that regular women would watch and have the same reaction to?
Any suggestions, comments, insults, examples, basically anything is welcome and encouraged. Feel free to tear me a new one if you want (I can take it).
Please no comments about any orthographic or grammatical errors
(If there are to many errors for you to handle (OCD) feel free to send me a corrected version and I will post it.)
