Making Love in a Canoe Erotic romance stories by Canadian writers Let''s face the facts - Canadians, to say the least, are not well known as a nation of lovers, unlike the sensual French or the rakish Italians, and classic Canadian literature is no less frigid than the climate itself. Not without cause, one of our founding authors, Susanna Moodie, has been called that "bloody Victorian iceberg.” There is no intended sexual innuendo in the title of her book Roughing It in the Bush, as explained by Lorrie Boucher in an article with the definitely playful title "You Said ''Beaver'': The Rise of Canadian Erotica” ( 2002/feature). Running from these inauspicious beginnings through the 20th century literary canon, there is little that sizzles sexually in Canadian literature, without dire consequences."God forbid anyone has a decent orgasm without losing an eye,” the authors of "Rapacity and Remorse” in Essays on Canadian Writing remark.

When it comes to sex in the Great White North, we''ve definitely mastered the art of staying warm. We''ve come a long way from our prudish past …So slip into something comfortable and get ready to read a seriously sexy chronicle that''s steamy enough to melt snow. Lie back and think of ... Canada ….” Josey Vogels, infamous sex columnist and author of Bedside Manners: Sex Etiquette Made Easy, drew a portrait of this new sexy Canadian: ''''With his book''s sexy scandals, sexy movies, famous sexy Canadians, sexy transgendered Canadians and sexy gay pioneers, there is no doubt that Canada is one sexy, um, country.
