Ménage Erotica: what kind of arrangement do you like?

I have a confession to make. Writers are supposed to be widely read in the genre they write in, but I’ve never read a ménage a trois romance. Not because I wasn’t interested. Believe me—I’m interested. I didn’t know they existed until I wrote one. (Blame my repressed and sheltered upbringing.)

My first multi-partner sex scene appears in the story, Midnight Rendezvous’, which is the lead story in my couples’ erotica anthology, The Devil Made Me Do It. I had a lot of fun writing it, and I think I did it pretty well because I’ve (ahem) researched the subject extensively. I also wrote a ménage scene in Her Twisted Pleasures. That one goes into more detail and… how shall I say… explores my heroine’s dark side.

But they’re both MFM scenes, which means that the woman is the center of all the sexual attention (yeah baby, I like that idea) with no contact between the men. It never occurred to me to write sex between the guys because they’re competing for her. “I can make her come harder” and that kind of thing.

I wrote an FFM scene once. Apparently I did that pretty well too because the story won an erotica contest—by two votes. I may do it again, if the mood strikes me. Actually, I’ll only write it if it fits the story and the character. (But the character is a guy, so I don’t think he’ll complain. ;) )

My point is (yes, I do have one) there are three ways to do threesomes, but I’ve only explored 2/3 of them. What am I missing? I read one MMF story, Stifle by Kendall Grey (HAWT), and I kinda liked it. (Okay, I really liked it. *drool*) I think I need to research the subject further and expand my horizons. ;)

What’s your favorite ménage combination: MFM, MMF, or FFM? Any recommended reading?

About Amelia James

Amelia James started reading steamy romance novels in junior high, but her mom took them away from her, so she started daydreaming instead. After she got married, she wrote some of her naughtier daydreams down and sent them to Playgirl magazine. Two of them got published. She kept daydreaming and writing stories until her dirty stories turned into trashy books. She lives in Colorado, but she’ll always be a loyal Wisconsin Cheesehead. When she’s not lusting after her next bad boy hero, she looks for inspiration in sci-fi and action movies, football players, bloodsucking lawyers, muscle cars, and kick-butt chicks.
