I don't necessarily get turned on while writing a story, but I do need to have the feeling "this could work" for me to not delete it. I also tend to write very long stories, where you end up having several pages being without any sort of sexual material. The sex in my stories comes natural, where it fits. If I get the feeling that I've rushed into the sex in one place I'll just chuck the entire part in the bin and start again.
But if I read them again I usually get turned on. After all, it's my fantasies that are being played out in the story.

Well, I've not posted any stories here yet, but l've writen many.

My writing ritual is very much a masturbation event.

I write the story in my head over the corse of many days, sometimes weeks. Then when l'm totally happy with the general story I start writing it down. I never write it in one night because l think it can be rushed doing that.

I really take my time, and generally end up masturbating and the end of each session. If I don't then that tells me it's not good enough. How can l expect it to arouse the reader if it fails to arouse me?

This is the way I've always writen. I don't think I could ever write erotica during the day or say in a room full of people, I need to be alone, relaxed and sometimes naked.

Hope this all makes sense.

My stories are little takes of autobiography. I guess I think if it turns me on, it will turn-on someone else but mostly, I write for myself. I share stories that are sweet for me and sometimes I do write about painful events. These painful stories are not shared often because there's enough pain in the world and because, I found out early on that people tend to judge harshly the things they don't understand. Once a story is in my mind, I work on it non stop until I have it written and then sometimes take days to EDIT EDIT EDIT. I write about sex like I would write a recipe because that's what I like to read. Romance is OK but to read, write and learn about the art of sex is a definite turn-on for me. Seems there's always a moral in my stories (at least in my mind) and the moral is always the same -good sex is good for a body and for the soul. My definition of good sex always involves love these days and so I'm inspired by the one I love. This can get redundant unfortunately. I write nude or mostly nude and masturbate as well.

Wish I had to talent to write fiction.

Nice subject-thanks for the question and answers : )

I've only written the one story so far, but in my mind I was there and of course I was very aroused. Oddly enough though, re-reading the story afterwards was not as erotic so I was very grateful for all the positive feedback. It's nice to know you're doing something right, and I suspect very difficult to judge it for yourself.


Can somebody enlighten me. I'm not much of a forum person. Here's where I am confused. Reppie my love, it says you are ranked as an 'advanced wordsmith' but it also says above that you have only posted one story. Am I digressing too much from this forum topic to ask how these 'tags' get associated?

Thanks (or not) in advance

Well I see it as that saying "if you can't love yourself you can't love another" If you don't get turned on by your stories then who will? When I write in the aroused state it's more raunchy and dirty!

I can honestly say I have never written a story without having to stop and masturbate several times. If I don't get turned on by my own stories, why would I think anyone else would? Alison XXX

To be turned on by what I write, the right words need to be used at the proper time. Repetition is a turn off, as there are so many ways in which one can express their artful talents through each keystroke to arouse all of the senses.

I definitely get turned on as I'm writing. If I am not turned on I don't have the passion and tiny details that make a good erotic story get under your skin. This goes away after a million readings and edits. Honestly, I'm sick of the damn story by the time it's ready to be published!!!

You know how a prizefighter doesn't indulge in women and sex until after his fight? Sometimes I will abstain to get my juices to a critical edge and it works into my stories...

But, also their are times I need to physically do a position to get the true life feel and mechanics. I give my husband a workout. He loves that I write "dirty stories" haha.

I can only write when I'm aroused otherwise the stories are dry and have no flow. I write on my long commute to work and it is the best way to pass the time- its like day dreaming only better :) oh and i almost never change the stories i write- i find the first instinct to be the best.

The rule in erotica writing that 'if it doesn't turn you on, it won't turn on your readers' is probably as fundamental as it gets.

That said, the aspect of the 'turn-onedness' is probably different for different writers. For me, if I'm in a groove with writing a story (or specifically, the sex scene/s in them) the arousal definitely is there, but it's something I have to kindof sit on and sublimate into the writing. Like any good teasing game, there has to be a component of discipline!

Sometimes I've gone back to old stories and been surprised to get excited over them and have that feeling of "Wait, did I say that?!" If the story reads a lot dirtier thanI ever remembered it being, that's a very flattering sensation. A bit of a shock, but a nice one.

To a point. The first drafts have a stronger effect, then as I continue to review the same material I have to either add more details or reconfigure the entire story.

Sometimes once I post a story and look back at what I wrote, I don't believe it is mine. But that happens once in a blue moon.

I write stories about circumstances that would really turn me on if I could be the main character. While I'm writing I'm calculating what would entertain me (or someone like me) the most. So, while I'm not turned on in the moment while I'm writing, I usually am quite turned on when I go back to it after a bit.

Yes, I am definitely turned on by my own stories. If not, then I would not bother writing them down. Hotbabeuk pretty much described my writing process:

I've written many stories in the past though none yet at Lush. But I would have to say that yes, my own stories always turn me on because I would not write them otherwise.

One of my college professors introduced me to process of writing and suggested the mnemonic P O W E R as a means to remember that process. Over the years planning (P), outlining (O), writing (W), editing (E) and rewriting (R) have served me well.

As I write, I try to imagine what the characters in the story would do at the given moment. I’ll typically insert a place holder depicting the type of sex I want at that point in the story and then I’ll go back and flesh it out later. Personally, I just find it easier to flesh out the storyline first and then add in the erotica. If the sex scenes don't light my fire, I figure they aren't worth putting into print so to speak.

My last story was rather difficult for me to write. So I decided to get into the character a little more. Part of the tale involves as aphrodisiac chocolate which also gets one quite high. Available over the counter, and quite legal. I had some myself. And I must say it worked amazingly well. I almost became a one handed typist. By the time I'd finished writing it...well that's another story. I do believe if a story line isn't arousing, I can hardly expect anyone else to find it so.

I absolutely get turned on when writing my stories, maybe even more than when just reading someone elses, I think maybe because I write about my fantasies. It's my way of exploring what I like and want without actually have to do it. . it lets me feel how I like something, or what the experience will feel like before I just do it. I nearly always write naked, and always get my self off after writing.

This is a fascinating discussion, and I feel as if I could answer "all of the above" in regard to different experiences I have had of writing, fantasizing, masturbating, and sharing. For a long while I couldn't write erotica simply because I would get too aroused to keep writing, so it was all very inefficient. Now, I find like others here that the stories are usually the result of a long process in which the images and characters form themselves in my mind, sometimes in the middle of the night. And when that happens, yes, I need some relief. By the time I'm writing now the whole scene is so vivid that I feel as if I'm right there, with the characters and sometimes the fact of writing, while arousing, produces a kind of erotic high that doesn't require immediate physical release.

I'm also grateful to so many of the Lush writers for letting me live in their fantasies, fantasies that turn me on but that I wouldn't have come up with on my own.

I don't know, but it can happen, I guess.

I started off writing my memories. But it was a very cerebral exercise, as opposed to emotional/physical - I simply wrote exactly what I remembered. I just wanted to see if anybody would like to read them. And when they did, I tried to branch out a little with some mixed results in made-up material. But I have been told by some that they found them having positive effect on their Happy Bits. Embarassed When I write from imagination (as opposed to memory), I try to put my whole self into the situation, but the experience happens more in my head and heart area (my brain gets very focussed, and my heart almost seems to lead me forward physically), but I don't actually get turned on elsewhere by what I write as I write it. The one time I was wholly physically affected by it was a very negative experience, which I have since learnt from.

I still don't know what I'm doing here, I guess. I just enjoy writing and learning from other writers and the forums, but to know people are physically engaged with what I write, as well as mentally, is something that, whilst I am not (yet?) very comfortable with it, encourages me to explore a little more. And I do wonder if, one day in the future, I will find myself engaging in deeper ways as I write. drunken

Remains to be seen whether my writing is as much a turn-on for other people as it is for me, but I've found that even with plot-heavy, sex-light writing, I still get turned on by my own work. Testament to the brain doing as much for the experience as the body, when it's all in my head, I suppose.
