I'm new to the erotic writing scene and I'm struggling to build tension. I've wrote fiction stories before and found building the story into a dramatic scene relatively easy but I don't seem to be able to transfer that over into erotica. Can anyone give me a few tips or any author recommendations.

Many thanks

Robbie.

Tension in interpersonal relationships happens so naturally that as long as you make the relationship realistic, it should be there. Some basic categories are automatically tense. Examples are:

First time/virginity loss
Incest
Marital strife/cheating
Reluctance
BDSM

Situational:

Will it happen?
Will it live up to expectation?
Will it cause regret?
Will I get caught doing it?

Hope those help.

In my case, what I do is try to get into one of the characters. That way I live the experience directly, and the ideas start flowing more easily. It has worked for me so far.

I hope it helps. dontknow
