A Rose By Any Other Name

One of the challenges in writing these books was trying to figure out how best to describe sexual acts. I could've take the path most often chosen and simply found some creative way to describe a penis or labia and various forms of sexual intercourse. You know something like, "he inserted himself into her wanting folds" kind of thing. But it didn't feel right and it didn't raise the level of eroticism I wanted. Instead, I wrote things like "easing his dick into her, he imagined the soft, pulsating walls of her pussy engulfing him."

I know there are those who prefer more gentile phrasing in their romance books. In fact, some may not be able to get past the more graphic content of my books...and that's okay. As the saying goes, everything isn't for everyone. Even though I wouldn't use such words in daily speech, there's something about hearing those particular words in your head when you read. There's an immediacy..and familiarity. We all have a way of saying words that can  build a heat and allow us to feel the characters' desires on a visceral level. That's what I wanted to create for my readers.
