Guys: If you’re gonna write about sex, make it sexy!

Over the years, I’ve read and edited a lot of manuscripts. Most men cannot write about sex worth a damn. They’re terrible (most of them, anyway). It’s true! Talk about lame. Ugh! When you find yourself rolling your eyes or emitting a deep belly laugh, then you know the scene is anything BUT sensuous or erotic. Guys, please, if you’re not adept at writing sex scenes, DON’T! Don’t name your penises, either. You end up sounding silly, not sexy.

    Preaching to the choir here. Kiss and cut.

    I’m talking about writing fiction, by the way. I didn’t know men named their penises. But then, why would I?

  3. Actually, a male friend co wrote a story with me, but he played a woman, and he wasn’t half bad.
