How to Write Erotic Fiction and Sex Scenes

54cfa2ce-e54d-4b6f-8008-ac26445e39b6

There is a growing market for erotic fiction, with far more imprints on the market than just ten years ago. But erotic writing is not just about full-length fiction: much romantic fiction includes sex scenes, and writing these scenes can prove particularly difficult for a writer inexperienced in the genre.

To be successful, this kind of writing does not always need to be blatantly sexy. Descriptions of clothing and of body language can often be even more arousing than straightforward descriptions of sexual acts. The erotic tone of voice can permeate both narrative description and dialogue, and this book explains how it is done.

As teaching aids, Ashley Lister frequently uses examples of successful passages of erotic writing with perceptive analyses of how and why they work. Backing this up are frequent exercises inviting you to put into practice the techniques that you have just seen at work.

This read, analyse, and learn system can teach you to write erotica both for full-length fiction and sex scenes.
