Why only women on the covers of erotic books?

Beef up your blog!

If you’re backing BICEPS and you’d like to link to us, please paste this code into your sidebar:

<p align=center><a href=""> <img class="aligncenter" src="" border="0"></a></p>

to get this neat piece of sexiness:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

If you like us and link to us, we’ll link to you too. And while you’re here, thinking about muscle and equality and blogging and muscle and smut, stubble, thighs like hams and … where was I? Ah yes, equality. Here’s a few more things you could do to add weight to our campaign:

  1. Give the world more pictures of men. It’s easy for us all to do what we’ve been conditioned to do and post a photo of a woman to convey ‘sexy for straights’. Remember, men = sexy too. The more people who show this, the stronger that message gets.
  2. Join us in Man Candy Mondays! Do a hot dude on your blog (ooo!), call it Man Candy Monday, link to us and let us know in the comments of our post. Who knows, maybe one day, the interweb will explode from simultaneous Man Candy Mondays! The romance community is very good at eroticising men; the erotica community still seems a little … shy? Afraid? Prudish? Surely not. Come on, kinksters. We can all, ahem, have a hand in this!
  3. If you’re an author and you’ve got a book to promote featuring yet another woman on the cover, why not post a pic of a hot guy as well? Offer equal representation within one blog post. Easy, huh? Men can do this too. Guys, if you think that looks odd or a bit gay, add the slogan ‘beefcake for BICEPS‘ and link to us. Again, the stronger the message gets, the less odd it will look. And one day, OMG, there will be men on the covers of erotica and it will be perfectly normal!

Short of images? We’re not. We are the Right Click Sisters. Get in touch if you’re struggling or in a hurry. Otherwise, go homo. That’s where all the guys are. Kidnap some muscle (there’s plenty to share) and bring it back to your blog in support of Women’s Lust!

  2. Olivia, you make me want to do a campaigning range of T-shirts, mugs and badges. And we’re not even a week old.

  3. Well, I’ve been planning on doing erotica art demos on my blog – a sort of ‘how I create erotica images’ deal. And now I have the perfect excuse to post naughty kinky images of gorgeous men on Monday.

    Yeah, like I needed an excuse, right?

  4. Hey hey, I’m absolutely up for your mission, am on my own mission also to help women receive what they need, as opposed to what they get. Naked men, equal genital exposure shots, visually yummy for sure. I am enjoying discovering how to shoot My Other for the blog, go check the results for yourselves !! Would love a link, love your site x

  6. Now that Lust Bites is winding down I’m going to start blogging like a proper writer of erotica. Please link to me and I’ll link to you, well, I’ve already sort of done that. As soon as I figure out how to put stuff in my sidebar (I know, I know, but I’m learning…) I’ll do the proper BICEPS link thing.

  10. I write m/m erotic romance, so having guys on the covers of my books is a no-brainer, but I am totally sympathetic to your cause. I think that equal opportunity ogling is the way to equality between men and women. 🙂

    P.S. I posted your Biceps banner (nice!) in my communities sidebar on my blog, and wrote a post about you too. Keep up the good work!
