I started writing Reverse Harem Romances a little over a year ago. I have one completed series, Tales From the Edge and another in progress plus a stand alone that releases next week in the Realms and Rebels Anthology - 22 books!!!
I was just posting in a group on FB where I asked the question - what's the number in your perfect harem? One person wrote - 7, one for each day of the week - which reminded me...
I had 7 once and no it's not something that's easily forgettable. I was involved with seven men at one time for awhile and that was my reasoning as well, one for each day of the week. They all knew about each other and they were all cool with it. Sounds like a dream come true? It was but I quickly got very tired! I often called them by the wrong name and had trouble keeping track of what I did with whom.
I did assign each one a night and since all my other nights were booked by the others, they couldn't deviate. I liked some more than others and though I've lost track of them now, I did stay friends with my favorite one for many years, even after he married an amazing woman, whom I also became friends with.
There is a reason I did this but the reason was based on healing a trauma that's not fun to talk about. But it worked! It was a fun experiment that I have no interest in repeating but I'm very glad I did it. Four men sounds more reasonable ;)
Seriously though I have had fun experimenting with many different trysts in my life - from mono to poly, from one partner to seven, from BDSM to vanilla, from menage to not. It helps round out my writing, interests, conversation and fun! #whychoose? #whynot?
