Do you write mostly for a male audience? Your stories read that way. Using words like "manhood", "pole", "cumming", "slit" give me that impression.

Some good responses here.

Chef - a little on the short side, but perhaps not as deep as I'd have liked icon_smile

Smiler77 - nice to meet you. Straight into it, no messing. Rough and dirty, sometimes good.

Baker992009 - hello there, you seem such a romantic. I wanted a little sexy time though.

Let me see what else we have, a very short seduction from DBarclay, I think I'll pass. A longer seduction from Ghostwriter - nicely done, except for the start wars cheesy line.

Mr Plow, you didn't strike me as the gentle type, tempting. I'm sure hotels would have a toothbrush.

LyricalMax - I like the dark imagery, and hint at bdsm (or did I just imagine that?).

Thank you for your contributions everyone, that was fun!

Topic Sources of Inspiration for writing Sex Stories

Sources of Inspiration for Erotic Writing

Even the best writers of erotic literature can occasionally hit a creative wall. Sometimes it can be difficult to generate erotic story ideas, especially if you’re currently dealing with personal issues in your life that don’t lend themselves to sexual feelings. What can you do when you’re out of ideas, and you’ve already written about every possible combination of caresses, embraces, and thrusts? Luckily, we live in a culture where sexuality is readily available through a number of different mediums. Here are some great places for finding the inspiration to write your next erotic story.

1) Dreams. We all know that some of life’s best sexual encounters occur in our dreams. The best thing about sex dreams is they are often much more quirky than real-life encounters, you may find yourself dreaming about partners, locations, and positions that you’d never even consider trying in real life. But that is the magic of dreams - they open your mind to new possibilities regarding what is arousing and sensual. They can also reveal deep desires residing in our subconscious. Drawing erotic inspiration from your dreams is a very effective way to start thinking outside of the box in terms of new story ideas.

2) Nude, erotic, or pornographic images. This may seem like an obvious place to draw inspiration for erotic stories. But usually, when writers describe a sex scene, it is painted in their mind rather than displayed on a piece of paper or computer screen. Looking at a picture while detailing a sexual encounter can help you to include details that you may have otherwise forgotten. Look for a picture a couple embracing or making love, and then write down as many details about that scene as you can, and voila! You have an entire list of sex story ideas.

3) Think back to your teenage years. We’re not talking about teenage sex, silly. Get your mind out of the gutter! We’re talking about the puppy love you felt as an adolescent or teen. When developing a romantic plot line, it can be easy to forget what fresh, passionate, all-consuming love really feels like, especially if you are married or have children. Help to connect with your characters by remembering what it was like the first time you ever fell in love with someone, or kissed a lover for the first time. Then channel that energy into the interactions that occur between your two main characters. This is a great way to add some oomph to your romantic story lines.

4) Get sexy. Thirty percent of women ages 18-60 report suffering from a low libido. If you are a female writer, this lack of sexual energy in your own personal life can greatly effect your ability to produce effective erotic stories. So how can you vamp up your arousal levels? Here’s a little secret: our sense of sexuality has more to do with how we feel about ourselves than how we feel about our partner. So do whatever it takes to make you feel sexy to you. Get some new sexy stiletto heels to wear out to dinner with your man or girlfriends. Let your hair down. Wear some makeup, or none at all. Feeling great about yourself will inspire you to reintroduce your body to the pleasure it deserves, and thus get in touch with the feelings required to produce erotic stories.

5) Look for the sexiness in the everyday. To be an effective erotica writer, you need to get in touch with the sexual energy flowing throughout the universe. The world is chock full of horny sexual arousal, so you just need to find a way to tap into that sexuality. Look for the steaminess in everyday situations while you’re running errands or shopping. Allow yourself to imagine sexual encounters occurring between characters at the bank, grocery store, or department store. Your job is to craft fantasy encounters, and you can’t do that unless you start imagining the possibilities.

6) Draw from your own bedroom activities. This may sound like another obvious one, but many authors make too much of an effort to design elaborate fantasy scenarios when the best material lies right inside their own bedroom. While you do want to make sure that your writing has an element of fantasy, adding some more realistic details will better help your reader relate to the material. So think back to your last hot bedroom session (or couch session, or back seat of the car session - whatever your thing is). Take whatever made that sex so great and turn it into a story, adding a few extra details that would have made it even better. These reality-based pieces can make some of the best erotic writing that is out there.

7) Movies. By examining the latest movie trends, you can see what kinds of romance consumers are looking for. For example, the box office hit The Notebook could inspire you to write a classic 40s love story. Titanic could help you craft an old-world tale of romance and tragedy. Jerry Maguire would be a great starting point for a romantic novel written from a male point of view. If you’re looking to appeal to a wider audience, checking in on current movie trends can help guide you in the right direction.

8) Vacation planning. Some of the best erotic stories take place in far-off, luxurious vacation spots such as Rome and Paris. Think back to the last romantic vacation you took, whether it was your honeymoon or a short weekend away. Think of all of the encounters that could take place in the world’s most beautiful cities and islands. Adding exotic elements to your story can add excitement and mystery to any romantic tale.

9) Lingerie catalogs. Lingerie companies’ advertising campaigns revolve around seduction, beauty, and intrigue. The sexual essence captured by lingerie models is captivating and alluring, and can inspire you to create a steamy and sexual female protagonist. Imagine that you are writing about an empowered woman who knows what she wants and how to get it. The costumes featured in the lingerie catalog can help you visualize and design that character’s clothing and seduction tactics.

Topic How to Make Your Erotic Story More Realistic
Posted 16 Jun 2008 20:42

I hope you find this article useful. I am doing a series of them icon_smile

As an author of erotica, you are likely quite skilled in creative writing. Crafting stories about romance and sexuality is fun and exciting, and it is easy to become swept up in fantastical scenes and elaborate plotlines. However, some romantic stories are so overly exaggerated that they become hard for readers to believe and follow. By maintaining a careful balance between reality and fantasy, you will enable your audience to become completely immersed in your story, and also leave them wanting more. Here are some basic guidelines to follow so that you can make your story accurate and believable.

1) Know your anatomy. While it is, of course, very important to have good writing skills, those talents will mean nothing if you have no idea what goes where. Ignorance regarding the human body will be glaringly obvious to your audience, especially to female readers. While male sexual anatomy and function is more straightforward, you must remember that female bodies are complex and tend to have a lot going on in one area. Make sure that you know exactly where important parts like the clitoris, vulva, and g-spot are so that you can describe and discuss them accurately. Even female writers can get this kind of information wrong if they aren’t familiar with their own bodies. Consider “boning up” (pun intended) on your anatomy and human sexuality facts before beginning your next story.

2) Figure out what men and women really want in bed. You may think you know what men and women’s favorite sexual moves and positions are, but you have to remember that people often lie in an effort to spare their partner’s feelings, or avoid possible embarrassment about their true desires. For this reason, it is important to do some research about men and women’s true preferences in bed. Try reading some recent sexual studies printed in peer-reviewed medical studies and journals. However, skip the polls printed in lifestyle magazines such as Maxim and Cosmopolitan, as they are conducted informally and thus do not always produce accurate results.

3) Draw from your own experiences. While you do want to add an element of fantasy and mystique to your writing, many erotic authors make the mistake of going too far off the deep end, describing what they think great sex is like, instead of what it is actually like. To keep your feet on the ground, try thinking back to some of your most enjoyable personal sexual experiences and go from there. What was so great about that particular experience? What would have made it better? Adding realistic details and events will help your readers relate to the story.

4) Variety, variety, variety. Too many erotic authors use the same old formula for every scene - a nipple lick here, a thrust there, and everything is over by the end of the next page. Boring! You and I both know that this is not how sex happens in the real world. Truly passionate, loving couples like to spice things up and try new moves every chance they get. Get creative and include a number of different types of foreplay, positions, and seduction tactics. Let your mind wander and have some fun!

5) It’s not all about the dude. A major issue many women have with contemporary erotica is that it often revolves completely around the male experience. Generally, vaginal penetration is staged as the main event in erotic stories, with the woman acting as the passive recipient and having a few orgasms every once in a while. However, studies show that at least 70% of women cannot reach climax from vaginal penetration alone, so that’s obviously not the way things happen in real life. If a woman reads a story about a female who can orgasm at the drop of a hat, it makes her feel inadequate, not aroused. Do the women of the world a favor, and write about the things that actually get them off, like cunnilingus and vibrators.

6) Write in the proper voice. Many erotic stories are written in the third person, meaning they describe the scene from an outsider’s point of view (“He gathered her into his strong, muscular arms, she moaned passionately in his embrace,” etc.). However, if you are narrating from a first person point of view (“I had been lusting after his hard body for weeks”), make it easy on yourself by having the main character be the same gender as you. This may seem like an obvious tip, but with the expansion of the genre into homosexual literature, men sometimes find themselves writing stories about lesbians, and vice versa. Be very careful if you decide to do this, because you are essentially stepping outside of your experiences and attempting to express the sexual desires of a person of the opposite sex. Make sure you are completely accurate in your gendered details and descriptions.

7) Read a ton of erotica. It sounds bad, but good writers can always improve their skills by reading the work of bad writers. Even if you think you already know everything about the genre, your writing style could likely stand to be improved in one way or another. You can think of a bad erotic story as a magnification of your own personal writing weaknesses, or a cautionary example, if you will. As in, “If I keep making grammatical mistakes while writing transsexual erotica, I’m going to eventually end up like this writer (shudder).” Learning from others’ mistakes can also prevent you from making them in the future.

8) Ask your friends to read your work. We admit that this may be an embarrassing request, but it really has the potential to improve the believability of your story. Presumably you have a few friends who are not regular erotica readers, and thus can provide a more objective view of your work. Sending them sections of your story will help you to determine how your story will be received by outsiders to the genre, and asking for their tips can help you appeal to a wider audience. Plus, your friends can let you know if one of your choices phrases is just plain ludicrous and should be eliminated, such as “trouser snake.”
