    Apparently 90% of porn is purchased by men and 98% of romance novels by women because of the different modes of arousal. However, “Gone With The Wind” as a romance? Some dipstick Southern Belle missing the point of the collapse of an empire, the suffering, burning of Atlanta and lawlessness? This is not romance. It is an alpha-male book. A romance book is something like ‘101 Erotic Bedtime stories’.
