Sex Scenes

Postby Theacds » Wed Feb 21, 2018 12:41 am

I write stories like this because I'm a virgin, so personal experience is out.

I've read more porn than is probably healthy for an adult male, but I'm drawing a blank on this. Am I over thinking it? Are sex scenes done just like any other writing? Pick the right words with the right pacing and stop when you hit the end?
Someone sent me a note on DeviantART sayin' they missed me, so if there's somehow any fans out there I wanna let you know I'm writing all sorts of cracy shit at https://www.deviantart.com/theacds !!

Ah, thank you! I'll make good use of these sources.

Though I'd see myself as more of a sorcerer, if I could choose. Don't want anyone thinking I'm some sorta nerdy WIZARD, amirite? Ha! HA! Ah, I am so lame.

I haven't read any of your stories. I don't read much these days. But in general the stories here (even though they are called sex stories) are really transformation stories. Unless there is a very strong reason, the description of the sexual act just slows down the story. What matters is how the character feels before, during, and after sex. Don't concentrate on the sex, just worry about the thematic reasons for the characters are having sex and then write about what you need to accomplish because it happen. Stick to feelings and/or transformations that are happening during sex that is what is important.

A related note from someone with pretty limited, but not non-existent personal sexual experience.

In reality, sex is way over hyped and can in fact be a little boring. And I'm saying that while also saying that, yeah, consensual sex between two people who dig each other, or a pro willingly exchanging money for service with a respectful customer, can be pretty great. Erotica didn't evolve just ad a substitute, it also was created to spice sex up.

The act itself means less than the things that are happening around it.

If you want to make sex meaningful in a story, you need to write around it and contextualize why it's important. Romance writers, who are basically soft core porn writers, got the right of it years ago that the feelings frequently matter more than what tab A is doing to slot B.

Not that there isn't a time and place for that too.
