I think we can all agree that polyamory is no longer taking a backseat in erotic ManLove fiction, as we now have tons of Ménage titles that showcase the complex dynamics of polyamorous relationships between swoon-worthy heroes. Beyond the world of erotic fiction, polyamory has become broadly practiced in the real-world BDSM/Leather/Fetish community. Just like...

No one reading ManLoveAuthors.com would be surprised to hear that the popularity of m/m e-books is at an all-time high and growing every day. However, some might not realize that literary ManLove is hardly a new thing.
