Bigfoot Erotica Makes For Big Business

"Fifty Shades of Grey" became one of the hottest trends nationwide with its steamy page-by-page erotica involving Christian Grey and the innocent Anastasia Steele. Now, it seems like Sasquatch himself is getting in on all the action. According to the Huffington Post’s Hilary Hanson, “Sasquatch-themed erotica has been around awhile, but the hilariously hairy phenomenon has lumbered its way into the mainstream.”

Author Virginia Wade (a pen name), has created a 3-volume, 16-book eBook series “Moan for Bigfoot,” available for download on . Costing an average of $3.99/installment, it's about the legendary cryptid with sometimes graphic and violent sexual encounters between the beast and his female lovers. The previous title “Cum for Bigfoot” was deemed too offensive so she was forced to change it.

"Business Insider" did an interview with Wade in which she said she just suddenly had “…this crazy idea for a story.” Yeah no kidding… Wade has had no real writing experience other than some few attempts at a historical romance in the mid 90’s. She never even considered submitting it to a mainstream publisher so she turned to Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing. It wasn’t an overnight success; Wade published with Amazon in 2011 and it wasn’t until 2012 that the book got over 100,000 downloads and nets upward of $30,000 a month. She’s also penned several other monster sex books like “Taken by Pirates” and “Seduced by the Dark Lord” but it’s her Bigfoot erotica that has gained her the most popularity.

It’s not surprising given that the Sasquatch legend has been gaining popularity recently. Spike has
even launched a new one-hour reality show called “10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty” starring Dean Cain. The show features teams of explorers who brazenly try to unearth real evidence of Bigfoot’s existence. The $10 million prize would be the largest cash prize in television history.

As for the Bigfoot erotica, I think I’ll leave that to Author Virginia Wade. I like my Christian Grey to be average height, average build and with a LOT less hair.
