I hate it when the heroine has to bite her lip or bite her tongue to keep from doing or saying something, and they always seem to do it so hard they taste blood...What is wrong with them?! That hurts! Why would you do that on purpose? lol

I think in just about every book I've read the heroine bites her lip and the hero gets an instant hard on.  Do men really find that sexy?

The biting the lip thing is a sexy, pouty kind of thing.  The blood part?  I have no idea.  I've read where they kissed so hard they tasted blood.  Blech!

I don't know Mary,..I bite my lips all the time and if it were sexy I'd have these men with hardons around me I'd think...maybe I should look harder next time! :-)

I just tried the lip biting thing in front of DH and sorry to say, no stiffy appeared as a result.

well, if the romance books are lying about that does that mean they're lying about the other stuff too? I mean, like, I can't hold out on any  hopes of finding a guy who can do all that stuff in 20 pages or less?? *sniff* and I had such hopes...

I've had guys tell me when I'm- um, "in the mood" I bite my lower lip and it's sexy... though I think it's more of the situation than anything else!
