As you can see, I love to spell things out. *snickering*

Okay. Sex. Let me just say that I am truly enjoying writing this romance erotica. Truly. And with that being on the table, let me explain my dilemma.
I like it. A LOT.
*looking around and wondering if anyone is getting my meaning*

Okay. I'll spell it out. During the sex scenes, I am all up in it. I mean WOO! In my other works, where sex was secondary, I was involved. But not to this extent. Sex is at least half this book. (BUT...if I took the sex out, it would still be a viable story. I had to check that out. It works.)

Back to the dilemma at hand. Does anyone else experience this? I mean, it's like reading my own Penthouse letters. And do erotica writers ever worry about someone getting a peek into their sex lives?
I can see people I know buying the book. Reading it. And thinking, "Damn! This is one naughty chick." hehehe

Seriously. I would love to know if other writers REALLY enjoy writing their sex scenes. Hell, you can post anonymous. It's just sex, folks.

Okay, now you sound like B.

He asked me if people read what I write and then think we do whatever has been written.

I said I hadn't really thought about it, nor had I been asked.

Of course, I did get a little paranoid about it for a few weeks after he said that. Beyond then, I went back to not caring. LOL

If someone wants to think B and I have shagged on the altar of a church, who am I do dispel that thought? LOL

Okay. Okay. I didn't mean like *wink wink* See page 30? That's autobiographical. :)~~
More like people's innate curiosity. I don't mind. I simply wondered if it ever crossed an erotica writer's mind.

You sound pretty horny to me. :) hehehe

I think the thought crosses ahy writer's mind that someone will think they are writing from experience. I have often thought--I'd better write good intimate scenes, or people will feel sorry for me that I don't know more about good sex if I write a bad one. :)

I don't have to post anonymous, like you said it is just sex, and yes I have had reactions from my own writing or reading other's writing. I think it might be natural. I read it somewhere. I think in the The Joy of Writing Sex. The author asked the other authors interviewed if this happened to them as well. Basically the author said it was okay to be aroused by your own wrting.

Oh, I love writing love scenes and if I don't get hot and bothered, there is something wrong. I don't write erotica, but I do write some pretty sexy stuff. However, these are not insights into my personal sex life. If they were, I'd need a chiropractor...all the time.
