#NewAdult lit is now two pants from #Erotica

(Item of clothing or breathless state, you choose)

Apparently, the only thing separating New Adult literature from Erotica is whether the main character is driven by sex.

My question then becomes, aren’t all characters driven by sex to a degree? Or if not 100% driven by sex, for Erotica characters that are doesn’t that make it boring and uncompelling to follow a MC that JUST wants sex? What about the nitty gritty emotions that accompany that drive – whether that’s ambition or a deep insecurity? Or both?

As a New Adult author, either way, I guess that means I need to work on my ‘thrusting’ synonyms.

(Edit: For synonyms, please see previous post for unintentional punniness)
