Do you write sex scenes or erotica? I have written both and an adult column (weekly). I’m ok with it and can live with the fact. But, I don’t like anyone I actually know to read any of the slutty stuff I’ve written. It embarrasses me. Kind of silly maybe, kind of back to that nice grrl thing. My Mother wasn’t best pleased when she found out about it several years ago either.
I don’t mind if strangers read it. What do I care when I don’t have to face them over breakfast, at family weddings and all that sort of stuff. It is going to be weird to have family ask to read the book I’m beginning to write for Harlequin. There are going to be sex scenes. I’m good at writing them and I like the element of male submission in them. So… I can’t hope they will skip the sex scenes in the book. I do. I’m the only person I know who skips over the parts where people are having sex. I find it boring. I don’t take the word boring lightly.
How do you feel about sex scenes, reading them or writing them yourself?
