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.
This is the second part of my article on writing realistic sex scenes. If you missed it, check out How to write realistic Sex Scenes (pt 1). Sex scenes can appear in many books, not just romance and/or erotica. Making the scenes more realistic can add detail to your character and be enjoyable for your audience.
Firstly, 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).
