So maybe that title isn’t fair, but hey… when I see a book with a cover that looks like the image on the right (created for this post… and do feel free to look close, lmbo) that’s what I think, lol. It’s like a beacon, that says GET ALL YOUR NASTINESS HERE!
But let’s be clear that i’m not suggesting anything is WRONG with nasty books. Sometimes I want the nasty book, and I say YES GIVE IT HERE. And you’d better not have a cover like this and NOT be nasty, okay?
And yes, i’m going to keep calling them that, because I’ve been accused a time or two or twenty of WRITING them, so I feel comfortable calling them as such.
But back to my point… when you see nekkidness on a book cover, what does it say to you? Do you think you’re getting a sweeping romance, or erotica? Do you think you’re getting something heavy on sex and light on plot, or do you not judge a book by the cover? Are you sharing on social media? Buying the paperback to read on the train? Or buying and hope no one sees it in the “recently read” carousel on your kindle?
How do you feel about books with the classic naked man on the cover?
