I always knew going into The Starless Series there’d be sex. Yes, I knew it. I wasn’t sure how I was going to make it happen, but with Stardust Emerging about to launch into the world, I guess it’s safe to say I figured it out.
As a sex therapist I’m passionate about consent, healthy relationships, and comprehensive sex education. What better way to talk about these topics than putting them smack dab in the middle of a space opera?
In this video, I walk you through my process, which involves a lot of romance reading that left me feeling blah. They hardly ever, if ever, talk consent in romance novels and I wanted to change that!
We need realistic healthy romantic relationships in all forms of art. We need to learn about what works and doesn’t work for us and the first place we look is in media. It’s time to change the stereotypes and do more.
