Right, so BDSM... Everyone seems to love it lately. Or maybe they have a while, but I've just not paid attention. I'll claim naivety on the subject. But, do people really love it that much?
It seems as though most of the books I see out there recently seem to pop up with some element of the lifestyle in some degree. So does everyone truly love it that much that books involving the subject are flooding the romance market in waves?

Even though I'm saying all this, I respect that everyone has their own things they love. I'll never put anyone down for their likes/dislikes. I'm mainly writing this post out of curiosity, I suppose.

Variety is good, don't get me wrong, but adding the "pain" aspect to bedsport just isn't a turn on for me. Of course, this is just my personal opinion, and we all have a wide range of opinions. So no offense meant by my statements to anyone should your delights lean towards the BDSM lifestyle. Hey, whatever gets you off, right?
As I said earlier, this post is written mainly out of curiosity. So what do you think of the BDSM fad in romantic fiction lately? Is it a fad at all? Or did I miss something along the way? Do you enjoy BDSM elements in your fiction? I'd love to hear your thoughts on the subject.
