Intimate Details: Beyond the Style Manual, #5

54 pages38 minutes


Intimate Details teaches writers how to craft one of the trickiest aspects of a romance novel: the sex scenes.

Sex scenes are surprisingly difficult for both new and experienced authors. This guide will help you answer all sorts of questions, including some you may not know you had. What’s the difference between erotica and suggestive sex scenes? Does erotica have to include whips and chains? What should you do if you don’t know anything about BDSM? How long should a sex scene be? How many sex scenes do you need? What’s “normal” for a sex scene, and how far can you deviate from that? What are your characters supposed to say while they’re having sex?

Whether you’re writing from experience or fantasy, Intimate Details can guide you toward creating sensual, cohesive sex scenes.
