Writing erotica and its impact on the author

Writers seldom take into consideration publicly their own arousal when considering an erotic story idea or scene. Perhaps it reveals too much of ourselves; yet our senses are open to emotion and affected by what we create.

We’re not robots and shouldn’t the subtle kiss — lips brushing against each other and the rustling of clothes coming loose generate passion in us even though we’re creating the story?

But we must fight our own arousal — and write beyond the distraction to bring the characters to life in a way that engages the reader and translates the fantasy in our minds to those who engage in the story.

  1. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it! 😉

  2. It is not easy at all. Sometimes it is hard to write hot and sexy when the writer is having an off day..
