Do you have “issues” with too much profanity or overly explicit (ahem) “romantic” scenes in books? Or do you take them in stride? Have issues like these ever caused you to close a book? Or do you go looking for more exactly like them? (grin)
I don't necessarily seek out books like this, but they certainly don't put me off and I've never closed a book because of profanity or explicit sex. In fact, when I was in talks with an agent for my first novel, back in 2005, she said I had way too much profanity in the book. I was shocked - I mean, I do tend to talk like a sailor (sad, but true), and my protagonist Jonas certainly has a potty mouth...but I obliged her and did a search in my 400+ page manuscript ... and found 400+ "fucks". I'm no math major, but that looks like one per page to me. Oops! I took a little over half of them out, but I still feel like the rest serve a purpose and offer some insight into Jonas' character.
So, yeah, no problem with the profanity or the sex. I don't search out erotica but I have no problem at all with - in fact, enjoy - a well written explicit sex scene.
ETA: A commenter got me curious, so I looked through the MS on the first novel, and found 36 instances of the f-bomb, not 200+. So, significantly fewer cases than I had thought.
