I find it very difficult to write sexual acts without coming across pornographic. We are taught at an early age that mentioning body parts both clinical and sexual are taboo. My need to write erotica is stymied by using sexual terms.
Some authors have no problem using sexual terms in their novels, and although I do not have an aversion against reading it; it’s another thing to write it into my novels or stories. I feel my writing becomes stilted as I fumble to use the words, or find other words for female and male genitalia. I personally, don’t curse or use vulgar words in everyday life, so using them in my work takes me out of the flow of the story. I guess this is something that I will have to overcome, or find another way to express or convey sexual actions in my novels.
This is becoming more of a challenge than I had originally anticipated. Wish me luck :).
