Things to Consider about Sexual Consent

I decided to write this after reading a few too many novels and online stories where it seemed there is a (worringly) blurred idea of consent when it came to sex.

Also since I noticed that my How to Write Realistic Sex Scenes articles (Part 1 and Part 2) have been getting more views it might be good to add this to the set. To drive the point home as it were (excuse the unintentional innuendo).

This article on consent is in regards to sexual activity. So if you are writing sex scenes in your story do keep in mind the concept of consent.

EDIT: See the video at the end of this post 🙂

Let’s make something clear. This tutorial is about writing sex scenes in fiction NOT writing erotica.

For those who don’t know the difference, erotica is literature written specifically to excite. Erotica has very basic plots that are moved along with sexual acts.

This tutorial is about writing sex scenes within regular fiction (leaning as usual more towards fantasy fiction).
