In Defense of “Cum”

In the past week, I've noticed a number of very interesting and important debates brewing in Romancelandia. Questions about: HEA/HFN and whether they're REALLY, yanno, a requirement for romance.

Everything else is pretty much up for grabs, but happily-ever-after or AT LEAST … Continue reading In Defense of “Cum”
