NARRATOR: Avestine had already spent evensun between Kami’s legs. She never tired of Kami’s heat. And Kami never tired of her mouth.
AVESTINE: Are you wet?
ESME: (whispers) You smell like sun and wind, My Lady.
NARRATOR: Sharing Kami with her queen was a frequent pleasure for Esme, who wrapped her softness around Kami’s sinewy body. She understood her queen’s desire for Kami–a woman as insatiable as the sea and sometimes just as frightening.
As you can see, these few strips (15-17) are from a single page. I’ve cropped them to fit into the slider and to follow my Chapter 1 format. When they are complete, I’ll post the organic page on the serial page as one image.
I like to write erotica, but don’t find much that I like to read. There are many reasons for that, some about taste and others about quality, but primarily, I have no interest in reading about penises. So there goes about 4/5 of everything written. Of course, erotica doesn’t have to be about genitals. I’ve had some exquisite pleasure reading authors who can make the nonsexual so sensual that their writing leaves me feeling spent!
I wrote one M/M story (Stilicho’s Son, available on this site) and have no plans to write more, though I adore the characters and relationships in that novel. I’ve written a few M/F stories, and also have no plans to do more of those. Life is too short to spend time reading anything but what I love the most #lesbiansexisthebestsex
What’s Good Erotica? I like an author who can put me in the middle of the sex with scents, tastes, flesh, and movement, not one that has me watching other people have sex by describing body part and actions. If you are new to erotic writing, I suggest you do not start with porn as a reference. Instead, close your eyes and be in the middle of your scene. Write what you’re experiencing and why it’s lovely (or not–that’s legit erotica, too)–what you touch and smell and taste, how you feel and what you need and what you fear.
Writing from the middle of things won’t guarantee readers will like what you wrote, but at least you’ll have enjoyed the process.
Erotica, perhaps more than most kinds of writing, can really spark a backlash. Some readers will find your writing transgressive and get angry. Others will find it boring and think you must be terrible in bed. Many will be silent, fearing any critique they make will reveal too much about their own sexuality. Humans are silly.
