I don’t do Bonbons (What do they look like?) and well, Butterscotch Martinis…love them. However, it isn’t a sissy drink, don’t let the “butterscotch” fool you. I haven’t had one in a very long time and I especially miss having them with my buds, the Butterscotch Martini Girls.
Sex scenes? As Brit Blaise, I have to write them and frankly a good sex scene is like good sex…it’s hard to get.
If you’re getting good sex all of the time, speak up. I’m sure others would like to hear ALL about it. Real life isn’t conducive to good sex, it keeps interfering.
It isn’t about part A (the really BIG one) being inserted into part B (the really tight one), “Ugh, ugh, ugh, oh, baby,” and the big O happens. Did that make you hot? So why do so many people think it’s easy to write about sex. Well maybe it is easy, but it isn’t easy to do it so the reader becomes emotionally involved and tingly in their parts. (((smiles)))
Frankly, I often find myself skipping the sex in books I’m reading that are touted as erotic if they don’t show the character’s emotional growth or hang-ups.
I like the three letter words in sex…hot and fun. If it isn’t fun I don’t want to read it, unless it’s freaking up-against-the-wall, hot. Writing five pages can happen really fast unless those pages are sex…then those five pages can take days if I’m not in the mood. And if I’m not feeling it, then my reader isn’t feeling it either as my good friend and critique partner Cassie Ryan says. http://www.cassieryan.com/
And we aren’t afraid to tell each other we are or are not feeling it. How about you? What makes a sex scene good for you? Talk about it…you may find it liberating. Wait! That’s it! I like my characters to talk during sex.
