Becky | 14 comments I don't know how many of you have read anything by Lynn Flewelling. I've read a few of her Nightrunner books, and really enjoyed them! I know it's not really "Vaginal Fantasy," as the two main characters are male, but...

I stumbled upon this great blog with her take on writing sex scenes.

http://cupoporn.net/2012/06/01/friday...

I found this really interesting: "I’m just gonna say it: Writing sex is hard. Murder, war, infanticide, poisoning, shredded bodies, battlefield amputations? Easy peasy. But sex? Wow. OK, sex is pretty easy (and fun!) if you know what you’re doing, but writing about it? That’s a whole different kettle of naughty bits. There’s something very personal and naked about revealing my inner fantasies to the general public."

Just thought I'd share!

Alex (trienco) | 80 comments My first reaction was to question why it had to be her "inner fantasies" in the first place. Simply based on some discussions and how disturbing it would sometimes be to imagine that all those things are the authors actual "inner fantasy".

Going over more of her blog, she brings up other points as well. And at some point I realized that, yes, of course it's her inner fantasies. Even if she has to nudge and guide them to a place they wouldn't normally go, you can't write it without first having it happen in your mind.

From a readers perspective, I wouldn't usually go "oooh, so that's what the writer is into". Yet, trying to imagine publishing something like that, I can see where she is coming from. I can also see, that I wouldn't have the guts to do that, so I just got a good bit of respect for any writer who goes (down) there.
