Other shows such as The Night Shift, Torchwood and Glee brought gay and straight actors together to bring stories of couples to life with passion and commitment. More series, think Looking, present authentic stories of gay and/or lesbian life. And these are just the shows that have stuck with me - if you know of others, please share with me!
Actors such as John Barrowman and Anna Silk have brought kick-ass bi- and omni-sexual characters to life, characters that are loved by fans.

And I absolutely LOVE it all!
Human emotions such as love and lust are complex and unpredictable. Why can’t we accept the potential we could fall for a person, who they really and truly are, and not just the package they come in? And why are we so afraid to recognize our capacity to fall in love with or care deeply for more than one person at once? More than this, why are we often unwilling to accept the parameters of what consensual adults want: BDSM, open relationships, polyamory and more?
As erotica authors, we have the opportunity to create stories, develop worlds and craft amazing characters where we can explore the breadth of what supportive, caring, consensual relationships can be. We can push our readers to consider what else is possible, bring them with us as we tell stories that showcase lust, desire, attraction, love and commitment.
