What do straight women know about gay men?

Running Press is launching a new mass market historical romance line featuring gay romantic fiction written primarily by and for straight women, which the publisher called a growing market. Shelf Awareness says, “The books feature plots "ripe with forbidden love, exotic locations and sensual leading men. Because the books are modeled on romance novels, not gay erotica, they are geared toward the romance sections of bookstores, not the erotica sections.”

I just wonder if straight women writing about gay men really know what they are talking about. I mean if you look at most porn, which is usually scripted by men for men, what the actresses find enjoyable and what real women would find enjoyable seem to be very different things.
