This one’s for the ladies or highly evolved men who enjoy a randy read. I’m revising and my steam meter is all over the map with my new story. I’m trying to figure out which direction to go. I’m never sweet so I know that one is off the table. But I try not to be too graphic. Let’s face it, sex is kinda gross too much detail and it starts to sound like a gyno exam and there’s nothing sexy about that. Nothing.
So now I’m trying to decide whether to tone it down or maybe ratchet it up a notch. My editor feels one of the scenes is too long. She’s right but I’m thinking if I cut it down I should also tone it down.
Back in the day Kathleen Woodiwiss was revolutionary because she brought us into the bedroom. Hard to believe she was the first to do this. If you read some of her tales now they seem like Disney World compared to what’s out there. I’d like to hover somewhere between her and the current fashion. That’s my dilemma today.
What are your likes and dislikes with the romance sex scene? More is more or less is more?
