I just began a writing assignment for a class I am taking online, and I am having trouble actually putting the right words down on the page. I am a big proponent of freedom of speech and all that jazz, so I am not really going to water down the love scenes to keep from being censored...but when is it too much? When you are reading erotic fiction, do you get turned on by the actual description play by play with all the visual cues and gynecological angles...or is it better to skip all the good stuff and go into the emotion of the character....I mean we all have biological symptoms of being turned on....our hearts start to pound out of our chests(overused cliche...btw)...and he pulls out his swollen member(another overused cliche) ...but where do I go from there....we go to the kissing part. That is when we see them locking lips...her breasts rubbing his chest lightly and arousing her more.....she felt the familiar wetness between her legs as she let herself be pulled into his embrace.....

Just a few questions:

Do I used dialogue? or should I let the characters without saying their thing?

Do I used a blow by blow description of the action? Does it make it more enjoyable to read?

How do I get this to sound like it is from the guy's point of view and avoid it sounding like a harlequin? I am definitely open to suggestions on this one.

I welcome feedback on this....I thought this would be an easy assignment, but I think it is becoming more difficult than I thought....suggestions?

I am more of a fan of the implied than the described. Set the scenario and let me fill in the blanks.

Myself I want all the juicy details right down to the touch, the feel, the smell, EVERYTHING but I guess that's just the prevert coming out in me but I LIKE IT LIKE THAT!!!

Writing is a highly individualized activity. Eroticism is equally relative and subjective for each individual. The oldest and best advice I've received concerning writing is 'write what you know best... yourself and from your own experiences'. Doing so gives sincerity to your 'voice' which most readers desire when reading fiction whether it contains erotica or not.

The comments thus far indicate just how divergent our preferences are whether they are gender based or not. While asking for guidance is usually a good thing, sometimes we place too much importance on pleasing others than we do satisfying ourselves. You must like what you write... if you don't it's unlikely others will enjoy it either. JMO
