And the final notes for last week’s RT Writer’s Convention in New Orleans:
Use all the senses – touch, taste, smell
Use interesting objects – antique mirror, weaving loom
Use all the emotions
Have the characters do what gives them pleasure, not just what you think the audience would like
Even vanilla erotica has some sort of power exchange to it.
sex in unusual places
props are not always needed
Sex needs to push the story forward. If you could delete the sex and not change the story, then the sex is gratuitous
Check and double-check your positions of people having sex to make sure they are physically possible.
