I write mostly fantasy worlds where the women are various ages, including much older. However, in my stories, as in my life, liaisons usually have age differences. That's the thing--having a strong libido but not finding same-age partners, which I would prefer. I've been told by straight friends they have the same problem. Is it that older women are more inhibited, just too busy, or is it that far fewer of us older women (I'm in my 50s) retain our sex drive? Because my dating pool seems to start at 25 and end at 35.

My experience with swingers was they were disingenuous because they knew their reputation and were essentially unicorn hunters. The women were most often bait and the men ran the show. Independence, freedom, a “room of one’s own” provides the basis of any intimate relationship I care to have. You're right. That sense of ownership, ick.

To me, the best erotica comes from writers' own experiences and desires. A lot of erotica comes purely from writers' fantasies, but stories can lack impact if the author doesn't bring some of her own experience along with all the research.

And here's the thing: no one thinks if I write about a murder that I've actually murdered anyone, but most of my erotica readers will assume I've experienced what I'm writing about even if I haven't. (Although I do write mostly from experience.)
