I have not read Harlequin Romances but the romance novels ones that I have read have not been all that racy, and I read the bondage ones. Some of the stuff posted at Literotica is pretty darn pornographic but that stuff is not published.
I do think there is a difference between words and pictures.
I agree with Prof. (I TRIED to read 50 Shades but was too offended to finish it. Not by the content, mind you, but by the terrible writing.) And Harlequin? All smoke, no fire.
Or maybe Prof and I, as women, define pornography differently. Or maybe I'm just playing the devil's advocate. But I agree, I think the written word is different from pictures.
