    I hadn't thought about reading christian romance novels owing to the fact that I don't like romance novels and I'm an atheist.

    Oh look, someone just summed up the majority of my reasons for having zero interest in these books. xD To be fair, I think there exist a few exceptions where the author did a good job of building the story without making things too awkward, but they are… DEEPLY in the minority. (And usually — in my limited experience — those books aren't purely romance and have something else driving the plot besides attraction and relationship conflict, which was the only kind of "romantic" novel I was ever willing to read.)

    Source: My mom was obsessed with these things and they were constantly lying around the house. Also, I get BookBub emails and for whatever reason, the algorithm STILL thinks it can get me into the genre after all these years of me making faces at the blurbs and scrolling on.

    I like western romance books & I have become quite good at avoiding the Christian ones. Usually they have a ridiculous title like 'the mail order bride & her one armed Indian' !!!. The cover also nearly always has a woman with a bonnet & a baby which dominates the cover looking out of place. I only ever bought one & it was so unbelievable it was embarrassing. The 'heroine' was captured by Sioux warriors from a wagon train (nobody was killed)!!. She then went on to change the religion of the whole tribe & married the chief with a Christian ceremony!!. I felt I had lost brain cells for reading it & felt ashamed of myself lol. The most worrying part was the number of positive ratings on Amazon!.

    You are touching on what I see to be the biggest issue with Romance Novels, Christian and Pagan – they are a form of pornography.

    Not only should people probably not read these books because of the poor expectations they give… but also… these books are very not…Christian. They're emotional porn.

    Wow, everything you are saying is what I always tell younger girls. I also was a christian romance novel addict at 12-14 and regret wasting my time because of the way that it was changing the way that I think about relationships. I think that they did really influence my thinking growing up and now I need to relearn these things in reality and truth. I however had access to the library (several libraries actually with hundreds of books) and they would often go much further than kissing. At one point I was so low in my life I literally burned every single romance book I owned. Literally threw them in the fire so my younger sisters would not go through what I did. So there is not one in our house anymore lol.

    Can I just say that is just that genre of Christian romance novels…. I grew up with Christy Miller and also love the books set in present time like master piece by Francine rivers as they aren’t quite so weird.

    My First kiss was amazing! But I freaked out a few days later because I had told him I wanted to wait 6 months into the relationship before we kissed but he asked me one month in lol. I was afraid it was wrong for him to ask me but really he had just forgotten and when we talked about it I realized kissing to him had a lot of meaning behind it and wasn't just some casual thing.

    We had just washed each other's feet and prayed for each other. Then we hugged really tight and I felt him pull back and I knew he wanted to catch my eye and kiss me so I pretended to adjust into his hug, pressing my head into his shoulder more and then he said "would you be okay if we kissed?" I was so scared because I had never kissed a man I was in love with before. I was also afraid that it was too early in the relationship. I thought about Audrey Hepburn and I kissed him the way she did- mouth decidedly closed but a perfect press to his.

    Then he started packing as he was about to head home to his home state and he invited me to sit down and I was just sitting there mind blown and shaky.

    LOL I think my fiance and I have been experts at kissing from the beginning. Just go really slowly and patiently and it has to come out of love

  26. Rachel Fagan

    July 21, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    So true! Men and women think differently. Everyone says that but damn when my fiance and I had conflicts and we would talk about it a lot of the times the way that I was feeling didn't even occur to him but once I said it it made sense to him and he could see my perspective

    All genres have a basic formula. It works the same for 📚literature as well as movies🎞️. A clever author or writer can tell a fully engaging story within that framework. Or, they can flip it around a bit and come at it in a slightly different manner. The key is to make it feel fresh and new within that construct.

    Jane Austen was once a shockingly contemporary author in the early 1813s. It was so scandalous for a gentle woman writer in those times that she first had to publicize her work under "anonymous."

    Now, her work is categorized as classic literature and historical romance. Her stories were quite richly steeped in the customs & traditions of the Regency Era and the marriage mart.

    Talented screenwriters have reimagined both "Pride & Prejudice" and "Emma" in more contemporary times. "Bridget Jone's Diary" (2001) and "Bride and Prejudice" (2004) were on the silver screen📽️. While "Unleashing Mr. Darcy" (2016), "Christmas at Pemberly Manor" (2018), and gender reversal in "Pride, Prejudice, and Mistletoe" (2018) were showcased on the small screen📺 under Hallmark. Amy Hackerling's "Clueless" (1995) remains a cult classic.

    Lifetime romance reader here. Personally, I enjoy both historic and contemporary work. Not necessarily Christian focused, but I do enjoy some that have a true spiritual component in the story. (Amish stories are a popular historic and modern subgenre.) Nowadays, simply prefer genres where the characters remain chaste until marriage. Fine if the fans of passion are flamed, but prefer the ultimate acts of sexuality are left to your imagination (and ideally happen between married folks).

    What was shocking or appealing about the sexes has certainly changed somewhat throughout history. Let's be honest a man with fine muscles has always been admired while a curvy figure on a lady has equally been appreciated. Fashions have changed, and taboos played a big part in it.

    RE over sexualization of various body parts can be odd, but ankles used to be pretty shocking sight. Celibacy, discipline, and modesty can also make unexpected parts of the human body an erongenous zone.

    The reality is when you don't indulge in the "main event" or even those acts leading up to it, a simple glimpse of manly arms and hands doing ordinary physical labor like carpentry or splitting wood can be very erotic (even when it doesn't illicit images of hot🔥sex).

    As a single person when you dial back your sexuality, there are beautiful simple gestures that begin to carry more weight and value. When you're not so free with your favors, so to speak, some ordinary courtship gestures like holding hands or kissing become more heightened and special. At least that's the way it has been in my own experience.

    This is hilarious. Everything you said is true. 😂

    Important to note that every genre has a formula for how their stories are plotted and arced. Romance across the board (Christian or not) will all have this formula.

    Some authors are better than others, so the writing will be more engaging and the characters more complex depending on the author but the basic formula is the same. The same goes for other genres like mystery, horror, etc.

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to put down a book because the language/voice of the author and the description of the action was soooo cheesy and ridiculous that I couldn’t suffer another paragraph. 🤦🏼‍♀️🥴

    They are just bad books out there. 😂

    Kissing felt so weird and bad, until I tried kissing women and then it lived up to everything that I thought kissing should feel like. Look up compulsory heteronormativity, and the "am I a lesbian" googledoc

    I read clean romances and the guys are constantly getting dry mouths at the sight of a neck. In modern settings. It’s so creepy. Dry mouth is hardcore porn for this genre. And it’s the first sign that they will then have an epilogue where, if she’s not pregnant with twins, he’s looking forward to knocking her up.

    While I do think that reluctance to discuss the protagonists’ chests definitely plays a part in which body parts they choose to sexualize, I think they’re also trying to take contemporary tastes into account. Until pretty recently, women’s chests weren’t really thought of as sexy. The focus was more on the legs, which is why if you look at historical fashion, women tended to be comfortable with very low-cut dresses, sometimes even below the nipple.
