A Swelling in his Loins

February 3, 2020

Engorged flesh is the beating pulse of many romance novels and it says a lot about the genre: the culmination of desire, virile masculinity, the creative euphemisms. Romance writers Clare Connelly, Daniel de LorneLeisl Leighton, and Maria Lewis unpack its role.

Contains discussion about sex.
