: *Hatcher said women can develop addictions to the sexual fantasies in romance fiction*(this is not in quotes by the way)
: This is a TRUE statement
Excuse me, but I would really like for either the above poster or the author interviewed in the article to give FACTUAL evidence of this TRUE statement. Please provide links or publications where romance novels have been studied and linked to sexual addiction. Or where women have been studied and found to be addicted to sexual fantasies because of their reading material.
I have never heard so much hooey in my life.
And I am not the only author who is aghast that there was NO evidence, no footnotes, no studies quoted to back up this bull.
