Cynthia Sax on The Appeal Of Voyeurism:
In He Watches Me, Blaine is the voyeur to Anna’s exhibitionist. He watches as Anna skinny dips in his pool and cavorts in his backyard. He doesn’t touch her. It is enough for this sexy billionaire to watch her, to focus on her, to orchestrate their encounters.
Blaine has other reasons for not touching Anna. He wants to earn her trust and to savor each stage of their relationship. But he also truly enjoys watching. He kisses with his eyes open. He installs cameras in his backyard. He has mirrors in his bedroom.
Voyeurism is a very common kink. Watching an adult movie (or some episodes of Game of Thrones) is voyeurism. Going to a strip club is voyeurism. If you read erotic romance (and I hope you do as this is what I love to write), you’re a sexual voyeur. You’re reading about other people having sex. Much of the content on the internet is voyeuristic and when media people say ‘sex sells,” what they’re really saying is ‘voyeurism sells.’
Voyeurism doesn’t have to be visual or written. There’s also aural voyeurism. This could be as simple as wanting to hear in graphic sexy detail what a lover is wearing or what your friend did with that hunk she met in the club last night or what your favorite movie star did with that tub of whipped cream.
One of the great things about voyeurism is, when done in a safe way, voyeurism is low stress. Voyeurs can relax. They don’t have to do anything except watch or listen or read. There’s little personal risk because often the people or characters being watched or heard or read about have sanctioned the voyeurism. Actors and actresses want to be seen. Writers want their erotic romances to be read. Anna wants to be watched by Blaine.
Voyeurism is also often how we can learn about sex in a non-threatening way. By reading erotic romances and watching adult movies, we can learn about what other people are doing without becoming involved with these other people or actually performing the acts ourselves. I often joke that voyeurism takes the monotonous out of monogamy.
By watching Anna, Blaine learns exactly how to please her. When he DOES touch her (in He Touches Me), there’s no guessing about what she likes. She has shown him and he has certainly paid close attention.
What is the craziest voyeuristic thing you’ve heard about or done? Has being a voyeur (and we’ll ALL voyeurs in some way) helped your relationship?
Cynthia: “Although The Seen Trilogy is a serial, each novella has a beginning and an ending. There are no cliffhangers! However, I do recommend that these stories are read in order.”

She desires to be seen. He wants to watch.
Anna Sampson has a naughty secret. Every night, she slips into her neighbor’s yard and swims naked in his pool. She fantasizes that the dynamic young billionaire watches her nightly nude aquatics, his brilliant green eyes gleaming with lust.
She discovers this isn’t pure fantasy. Gabriel Blaine has been watching her via his security cameras, and now that he has returned to L.A., he doesn’t plan to stop. That’s all he wants—to watch. Anna knows she shouldn’t allow him and she certainly shouldn’t want more, but she craves Blaine’s attention, needing his gaze fixed on her body.
Part One of The Seen Trilogy
His touch enflames her desires.
Anna Sampson has allowed billionaire businessman Gabriel Blaine to watch her, all of her. And looking is all he’s done—until now. After giving him permission to touch her, Anna realizes she won’t be satisfied until she has all of this handsome and secretive man.
Soon she tempts him, shreds his control, and pushes him too far. Blaine’s reluctance to take her virginity frustrates Anna. He fulfills her fantasy, but what is their reality together?
Part Two of The Seen Trilogy
Two men want Anna Sampson. Gabriel Blaine is powerful, intelligent, the CEO of a successful company, and a billionaire. He’s watched her, touched her, encouraged her to become a strong, independent woman, a woman unafraid of her desires.
Now secrets from the past are exposed, threatening Anna’s freedom and safety. Will the man she loves stand by her side, or will he desert her, leaving Anna once again to face the future alone?
The searing climax of The Seen Trilogy.
