Romance in the Real

23 Sep

Are you a fan of romance novels? Whether or not you enjoy this particular indulgence, statistics show that romance book sales far outpace any other genre of adult fiction. Romance novel sales break a billion dollars annually. What do these numbers tell us about the emotional needs of women? Whether single or married, it’s easy to find yourself in a rut of epic proportions – go to work, come home, clean the house, grocery shop, get up and do it all over again.

Clearly, women are craving romance and adventure, and they are stuck experiencing it vicariously through literature.While reading is a great escape, how do we stop living vicariously and start living romantically in our own lives? This dilemma is especially true for the plus size woman who bears the brunt of our youth obsessed, thin obsessed culture in the bedroom.

Here are a couple of quick and easy suggestions to rediscover romance in your daily life.

Up the romance factor in your boudoir by strategically placing candles for just a touch of fire and light. Candles really do transform a regular room from the same old-same old to a sensual and relaxing retreat. The added bonus? Everyone looks great in candlelight, too.

Wear sexy underwear to the office. You have to feel romantic before ever getting romantic and that starts early in your day. If you’re wearing granny panties to the office, you’re killing your inner romance goddess before she ever gets to come out and play.


Sexy underwear set the tone for your day. Trade in a standard brassiere for the coverage and romance factor of a corset.


By the time you get home, you’ll be ready to leave the book on the nightstand and engage in a little role play of your own!
