I use my real name, but it does mean I have to be careful as I do have a job that could be put at risk. If I wrote "kinky" books, I could easily be fired, because of where I work. So I could see the advantages of hiding behind a pseudonym.
I do not read nor write in that genre so it is not an issue, but I could see how it could before you and others. Something to think about at least.
This, in a nutshell. (Though I can't get most of my family or friends to read my stuff!)
