Front and Center ~ by Tiffany A. Snow
Warning: Some language may not be suitable for younger readers.
Writing...intimate...scenes is hard (no pun intended). It's difficult to strike just the right mood and one wrong word can break the reader right out of the flow. Describing anatomy and the nuts and bolts of who-put-what-where is daunting for every sexual scene that I write, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way. Is it gentle and sweet? Then "cunt" probably won't be the best word choice. Hard and fast? Then "dewy petals" may not work either.
I firmly believe writing a believable sex scene requires a certain art - a sure, deft hand - and good ones should be appreciated. After all, who among us hasn't had our pulse quicken at a well-written sex scene?
But the words. Sometimes I wish I had a thesaurus just for anatomy and sex. After all, is it a dick, cock, or a prick? A shaft, manhood, or rod? Hard as steel or throbbing member? Is it aching, straining, or pulsing? An erection, arousal or just plain old penis?
And she's even more difficult. She has breasts, though they're sometimes globes. Her nipples (or peaks, which I'd thought only came on mountains) are sometimes turgid, painfully hard (that doesn't sound like a good thing), aching, or puckered. They can be licked, stroked, kneaded, bitten (vamps take note), palmed, squeezed, sucked, nibbled, tweaked, twisted, rolled, pinched and pulled.
But she doesn't only have breasts, she has...it. Paradise. The tunnel of love. Weeping passage, satiny walls, pussy, or core. Which I’m pretty sure is her center. Which is the opposite of her bottom, or rear, or ass. It's somewhere by her mound, folds, lips, slit or clit. Which is also a nub, apex and bundle of nerves (which was also my brother-in-law at his wedding, but I digress).
And when the steel rod in a velvet glove is buried inside her (always) tight, intimate grip which can, in turn, be hot, wet, slick or dripping, eventually the thrusting, pounding, pushing and stroking gives way to a shuddering, shaking, mind-numbing, shouting her name, crying out in pleasure climax.
So hats off to all you writers out there (and to the readers who bear with us) as we wrack our brains struggling to find a new and creative way of describing exactly how Tab A is inserted into Slot B. It's hard work, but somebody has to do it.
Now I need a cigarette.
