Topic Formatting Dialogue
27 Aug 2012 20:12
That is useful. I feel like I have it fairly well, but in my most recent series (the only stories I've posted here) I have characters interacting in present tense, as well as telling each other stories in past tense which include dialogue. Needless to say, it's complicated. The Candlelight and Belts series can be found on my profile. I hate to plug like that, but I'd love any suggestions anybody might have. Chapter two is a ways off, but I can always post a formatting edit. Thanks to anybody who can help.
Topic very tight ladies

Start with a lengthy massage, and segue into the foreplay, then into the sex. It doesn't hurt if she has an orgasm first, and the first few times, I'd say don't take too long. If it does hurt her a little, she may not say anything, but you don't want to break her for a week. Have fun!
Topic Is 4.8 inches hard really a disappointing first impression?
27 Aug 2012 19:58
I wouldn't worry about it at all.
I have friends who have penises much smaller, and some who have nine inch spears. You should feel good about two things immediately.
The first is that you don't have an ego problem, and therefore won't rely on your size to get the job done - something which is stupid anyway; but many men assume that a big dick means they don't have to try. Use your hands, mouth, and whatever other parts of your body you and your partner are both comfortable with and make her cum! Some girls, and guys for that matter are what the world refers to as "size queens", but that's usually to do with an insecurity of their own. They tend to always mock whatever penis they see, and aren't very fun to sleep with anyway, in my experience.
The second thing is, you don't have to worry about hurting your partner with your penis, which is nice. There's nothing that puts a stop to sex faster than the phrase "Ow! My cervix!"
Enjoy your penis.
Topic Full Length Porn movie with plot
27 Aug 2012 19:50
Yeah, you might be better off with the late sixties through the early eighties in terms of an era of porn where plot is relevant. Ron Jeremy has done some interviews on the subject. He's a surprisingly interesting guy. Anybody else know that his other job is teaching developmentally disabled children? Yep, Ron Jeremy the public school teacher.

First: You are NOT weird or creepy for enjoying anal sex. I know many women who do. I know some who don't, but if I compiled the data I think it would be about 65/35 in favor.
Second: Men are not ALL anything.
26 Aug 2012 19:04
Sometimes. It depends on a lot more than that, though. Plenty of men will walk down the street with a raging boner almost stabbing out of their pants and you never even know it because they aren't walking like they're ashamed of it- hunched over, carrying their case oddly, whatever. Other times, people just have a limp or a strange way of carrying something, so no, I don't assume.
It does cross my mind though.
Topic Help! Vagina, Pussy, Cunt... what to call it....
26 Aug 2012 18:59
I agree that there's a lot of options to choose from, and the right one rarely if ever comes to me. My advice to everybody is to avoid the c*** word. It's fine by many, but enough of us find it to be such a turn-off that the story loses it's erotic appeal, either immediately, or slowly as we force ourselves to try and overcome it. The advice was meant as nicely as can be meant.
Topic Which Viewpoint do you use and why?
26 Aug 2012 18:53
Right now I'm using a blend of first-person present-tense (pronoun only), and first-person past-tense. This is in my erotica for Lush. I'm planning a story written in an outright second-person perspective just for fun sometime. I've tried it before and had it work okay, but I think it will work great in an erotic context? Anybody else on second person writing?
26 Aug 2012 18:50
I love them. Love, love, love, love, love them!
I use them especially when I'm talking, but some of my favorites are "henceforth", "verily", and "forsooth" - which I have started a thing amongst some folk (ooh, "folk") I know converting it to mock gangsta speak "fo sooth!".
I use lots of others also, and I'm sure I'll be back to this thread when I've given it more thought, but right now I'm having a kind of an attention-deficit sort of a night. Cheerio!
Topic Do you have any non erotic literary influences?
26 Aug 2012 18:46
I'm sure I have lots, but I'm not sure how much the influence my erotic writing.
I have a lot of respect for many authors and writers throughout history (some of whom are listed on my profile), and many of those influence my writing style and voice, but my erotic voice is still developing. I guess it's mostly related to the rest of my writing, but not really to the external influences of those pieces, if that makes sense.
Topic turned on by your own stories
26 Aug 2012 18:41
I don't usually try to start writing when I'm aroused. I wrote one story from start to finish without becoming aroused and it was terrible. There was bad writing, awful editing, and an obvious lack of inspiration. I was rushed to get out the door and when I had my girlfriend read it the next morning it was a terrible experience for all involved. Even the characters were embarrassed. There was a lack of passion in it and some editing issues (stemming from a lack of attention) which inadvertently changed the topic and mood of the story. Outright reversed it really, making it not only poor writing without any entertainment value, but actually a very unpleasant read.
Since then, I try to let the story arouse me as it progresses. It allows for the formation of a reasonably long story, as well as allowing the characters to find themselves in a sexual situation naturally. The exception to that of course is when your story starts in a sexual situation, but even then some backtracking usually has to take place within the narrative. Sometimes I stop and play, or go find my girlfriend, but mostly I've been trying to treat it like the rest of my writing. If I'm not feeling something because of what I'm writing, I'm doing something wrong or I'm just not in the right state to be writing at that moment. If it's erotica I'm writing, then I should be feeling aroused.
Topic Who do you write like?
26 Aug 2012 18:25
I got Chuck Palanhiuk on every attempt larger than a couple of sentences. I wouldn't liken myself to him at all, but then I've only read a couple of his. Also only tried it with my erotic fiction, which does own a somewhat different voice than my other prose fiction, which is certainly different from my stage or screen voices.
Topic Long story or episodes?
26 Aug 2012 18:18
Clum's answer was excellent, but I thought I'd jump in too.
I've got one piece (prologue and chapter 1 are posted on my page) that is episodic. More chapters are on the way, and it involves two (and in later installments more) people engaged in a rather lengthy sexual encounter whilst telling each other stories about their sex-lives in times past, so there is a long continuing story, and a shorter story hidden within each one.
I have another project which is quite lengthy, I think about 17,000 words now (not posted) that I'm not remotely sure how I would break down. If you have a really long story, my advice is to leave something to wonder about at the end of each chapter, because going back over mine, I can't find a single damn spot to break it down to a postable length. With that said, let me recognize Clum's answer as excellently concise and well presented again before I sign off.
Topic When you're making love to a girl what really goes through your mind?
26 Aug 2012 16:08
That's a tremendously unfair question, isn't it?
Men are not the same person. I'm on a bit of a rampage when it comes to this today. In MY case, it depends on what kind of sex we're having (slow, romantic, quick, rough, gentle, kinky, etc. ), who it's with (i.e. is it a girlfriend? A one night stand? An indiscretion with a friend?), is it the first time with that person?
Topic Car Fetish
26 Aug 2012 16:05
Cars do that to people who like cars. I was once riding in a corvette with a girl sitting on my lap (because it was a two seat car) who orgasmed when the car hit 90. It was especially awkward when you consider that her boyfriend was driving. Fortunately we were all quite close. Lived together in a studio apartment. Seems a little stranger, looking back at that now that my life is a little more conventional.
Topic Boxers or Briefs?
26 Aug 2012 16:02
Boxers or nothing. Depends on what I'm doing that day. Say I have a doctor's appointment, I'm wearing underwear. If I'm not leaving the house, I'm probably not getting dressed at all.
Topic Against cumming in mouth...
26 Aug 2012 16:00
Tell him that it's something that you really enjoy. If he won't do it, he won't do it. Some people won't lick pussy or put a cock in their mouth. Some people think anal is gross. Some people are just rigid when it comes to what they won't do. Let him know how important is to you, though, however important that may be.
Topic Why do expectant fathers act like cocky jerks?
26 Aug 2012 15:55
Wouldn't your question be better phrased asking for insight on why we think your husband specifically is acting that way? I hate to... well, no, I don't mind harping on this subject. People who share a gender or sex do not necessarily share a common behavioral pattern.

Topic Boobs - Can you answer honestly?
26 Aug 2012 15:17
It's more complex than that. There's a lot to be considered when deciding what you think is attractive about a person, or even just about one (or in this case two) of their features.
Topic Should men shave their legs?
26 Aug 2012 15:01
Should women shave theirs? I think it's pretty much fine if they do, but I know far fewer women who do than don't. My post saying that guys shouldn't unless they're swimmers (or another type of athlete for whom it's relevant) pretty much applies to women too. It's not really a factor when I'm considering how attractive somebody is. I don't shave my beard, and some people think that makes me unattractive.
