First of all, different people like different things! Even if you favour, say, BDSM stories or Love Stories people have favourite ways to treat the subject. Some like the writer to cut to the action very quickly, some prefer a longer lead in....

However, some across-the-board advice....

CHARACTER.
(Draw your characters well, let's know who they are, where they are and why they're about to do what they're about to do.... Describe how they're feeling as they act... Excited? Ashamed? Abandoned? Helpless? In Control... etc.

DETAIL
(An aid in making your story more realistic is to include a degree of detail; what the protagonists look like, what they're wearing... Describe the setting, what kind of Room, Car, Car-Park!!!

PLOT
(Have a start, a middle and an end, a climax if you will... Makes us imagine what might happen next)

I agree with everything Stephanie said, so I'll try to make some new suggestions.

1. Sometimes less is more. When describing your characters, look for a few details that are important to who they are, rather than generic details that could apply to anyone.

2. Try to integrate your description into your action. So, for example, rather than saying:

"She had long dark hair."

Say something like:

"She flicked her long dark hair over her shoulder."

Good luck :)

I have two pieces of advice for your first story...

First, don't forget to put sex in it since it is a "sex story site"...

The other, and I think more important piece of advice is to write it up and post it without worrying about trying to make it "perfect"...in spite of what some here may tell you about editing and re-editing...

I think the best saying I've read in a while I saw on a writing blog recently...it went "Don't get it right, get it written."....

You have no idea how many people I've seen post in the forums here in the last couple of years asking advice on their first story and never actually posting one...your first story will never be "perfect"...neither will your second, or third...

Just write it and move on...

I don't have any specific pointers, I'm sorry, but the hallmark of a good story is when you are disappointed that it has ended. So it's a combination of skilful writing, nice mental images and an interesting plot, I suppose. I find a lot of erotica very 'mechanical', kind of like, "he did this, she did this, they did this (sideways), and then they came" which ain't so great. I like it when authors make a real attempt to paint a picture in words.

I'd like to see a story about a Mother/Son incestuous camping trip...long planned and dreamed of by both participants, only to be interrupted by a Bigfoot attack, where the mythical ape-like creature rips apart the camping tent and absconds with the horny, nymphomaniac, older, incestuous cougar mother-unit in an attempt to start 'his' own colony of Bigfeet/bigfoot?

(I think I need some pluralism assistance from one of our Lush advisors)

Oh, wait...I've already read that one here. confused1

Sadly, it was rejected. (for many reasons) Nutbag

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

If you must write this then don't make it brother-sister or parent-child because, if you don't mind, it's just gross.

Cousins, step-parents, uncles, aunts, all offer plenty of opportunity to write stories that have an edge of taboo while not quite the yuck factor of the aforementioned type of stories.

You asked. My 2 cents

Perhaps you might read some of the Incest Stories already on Lush, (there are one or two..... ) and decide which ones turn you on and why? Then try to write something in that style, while bringing your own ideas to the story...

Incest Stories are very popular here, BUT some people absolutely abhor them!

(I write them myself, but I'm aware I'm dealing in fantasy, it's always consensual and the appeal is the Taboo nature of the experience... Where people KNOW they just shouldn't but can't help themselves...)

Interestingly, (and what a double-standard!!!) I refuse to read BDSM stories as I find these a real turn off, even though, like my own Incest Stories, I know it's total fantasy.... (Well I'd HOPE it is!!!! Unless you're into that.... But I'm NOT!)

I confess to having a real issue with the Incest Stories I write, to the point where I have to work out plot devices where it turns out to be 'not really incest' and yet I like the form and I like writing in the genre..... But even though I'm aware I'm writing total fantasy, the knowledge that such a thing is REALLY GROSS in real life doesn't stop me from being turned on by the idea....

Serial Killer novels are big business yet nobody suggests that the authors of such tales are ACTUALLY serial killers.... Or sympathisers....

PM me if you'd like to discuss this further....

Enjoy Lush,

xx SF

My first time m2m experience is somewhat taboo, but since it happened many years ago and the person it was with has long-passed away.....He was older and it was oral. At the time, I was the person who wanted it to happen and I have never felt bad for making it happen. It was awesome and I still dream about it.
