Never quite understood it myself...especially since most of the time, it's cock and cock alone...rather than, "here's me naked, and looking theoretically sexy."

I see that all the time at the stores but I am to nervous to carry it to the register! lol! Kinda embarrassing.

I still feel that way sometimes...but look at it this way. The cashier can assume all they want about what you're going to do with it. But, for all they know, you're having crazy sex parties at the sorority house down the street or some shit. dontknow

I like K-Y warming for sex toys (big fan of Tenga) may not be the "best" per se, but I think it's the thickest of what you'll find at a local store.

Well - here on lush some of the people come just to read the stories as porn and get off to it. (I'm not complaining - just defining part of the audience)

I think I made the assumption this is everyone. Makes perfect sense that it's not though.

I'm one of the 3rd. I appreciate it all, it depends on my mood. I love romance, I love erotica, I love a little bit of everything thrown in from suspense to violence (frowned on here at lush) within the story line.

...and if one person feels that way, then so do a thousand others.

Well, you weren't inputting the correct search criteria, but then again, you're not the first to either admit such or ignore such. Play on, I say. Please try a bit more - in the future.

OK, fine, you got me. I didn't try very hard. Embarassed

And - (not to the original poster) but to the rest of you haters...

Fuck off. Why?

Because I can.

Did I miss something here?

For me it depends on the relationship between the characters. If you're writing about a couple in a long-term relationship you don't really need a big lead-up to the sex scene because their relationship is already established. If the story involves characters who've never slept together before I'd generally want to read about how they met and what brought them to the point where their relationship became sexual. There are exceptions to this though, because I've read some good "quickie" stories between strangers where there was no backstory and the sex was hot.

I think the main thing is just to make sure there's tension and only add information that helps the story progress, that way your readers will want to keep reading and it won't really matter how much of a build-up you write.

That's kind of what I was thinking (although wouldn't have explained it as wel).

Thanks for the input!!

Excellent, thank you everyone for the feedback. I just wanted to make sure I wouldn't somehow get myself in trouble. :)

Topic Publishing stories outside Lush

Hopefully this is the right spot to ask this question...

If at some point, I choose to publish a collection of short stories as an e-book, is it OK/permissible to use stories I have posted on Lush? Or, do they become property of Lush once I post (like Craiglist)?

Related secondary question... If I did publish in an e-book, I would leave any "re-used" stories posted here. Is there an appropriate or "good" way to tell people reading the book that if they saw the stories here, they are not stolen...I just put them in two places?

Thanks! :)

My apologies if this has been addressed before...I haven't come across it yet.

Question for you all: What are your preferences and thoughts when it comes to the length of the lead-in to a story? If the primary sexual encounter of the story is the "climax" (punned!), how much is too much when it comes to the non-sexual setting of the stage? I ask because whenever I write something new, I worry that somebody reading it is sitting there going "get to the good stuff already!"

My opinion is that I prefer enough lead-in to provide context and detail that makes the "good stuff" seem at least a little bit plausible, and I try to work that into my stories. I feel like providing that kind of content makes the sexual parts hotter.

Should I:
A) Keep doing as I'm doing
B) Keep the lead-in as short as possible
C) Stop worrying about it and just write the damn story

Thanks in advance for your input!
