I love stories with romance, action, magic and humor, and always include them in my writing. I'm originally from Brazil and I've been living in Montreal, Canada for over 15 years.

Ooh, what an interesting question. That’s a super interesting topic that people should maybe write more about.

With Zora, I can see that she is still sort of asexual, but I think it is just her process of growing up. That said, you can see it differently!

I feel that the timing for maturing sexually varies from person to person and still maturing at 17 is not late or unusual. Not that there’s anything wrong in maturing earlier. Or even later. People have different timings and mature differently. And being terrified of sex is a common experience.

I did spend some time reading about first time experiences and noticed the ages, how easy/difficult it was, etc, how afraid they were, how long they’d been with their partners, and I find that Zora’s reaction/fear is rather normal. Again, it doesn’t mean that everyone feels the way she does, but tons of people are terrified just like her, and we don’t read about them. First times tend to be glossed over, simplified, or romanticized. Heck, I have my share of romanticizing and describing a first time as a smooth-sailing, beautiful experience <spoiler>in Star Spark</spoiler>. Which makes sense for those characters. It doesn’t mean every character should be like that.

With Zora, there’s the compounding factor that her first boyfriend doesn’t seem like someone who would be attentive to her needs. Maybe because of this relationship she sees sex as “pleasing” or “serving a men” and that’s quite an unhealthy way to approach it and an extremely toxic motivation to do it. Well, she even sees marrying as serving a man. And she’s damn right not to want it. But that’s not what all sexual and romantic relationships are about, right?

So I think that yes, she needs to find a way to relate to her own sexuality in a healthier way, consider her agency and allow herself time and patience to mature and get ready for it in a way that is right for her.

Yes, the next books will touch upon that, as much as I can approach the subject without getting graphic. But she also has some emotional struggles that need to be dealt with, and they might come first.

Yikes. I wrote an essay. But it’s really an interesting question and these themes are central to The Cup and the Prince. Does it mean I wrote a book about sex?
