this is actually freakishly accurate

like, they got my gender, approximate age, and hair + eye color right

holy shit

And then there’s me “Here is our best guess at who you are: 1. You are female. 2. You are currently in your mid thirties. 3. You have a great job that you don’t necessarily appreciate as much as you should. You do, however, appreciate the great life partner that you have and your caring friends. 4. You have short blonde hair, gray eyes and a naturally tan skin tone. 5. You have 2 kids. Currently thinking whether or not to have a third one”

okay fine maybe I was just flattered by their description of my “beautiful, silky brown hair”

1. You are female.
2. You are currently in your twenties, you are single, dating at nights and balancing a promising career during the day.
3. You are smart, calculated, funny and imaginative.
4. You have black hair, dark eyes a cute nose.
5. You own a pet.

1. You are male.
2. You are in currently in your mid 30’s.
3. You are married and just became a parent. You are experiencing exciting days, and more are on their way, but through it all you remain strong, loving and deeply caring.
4. You have short hair - partly gray, brown eyes and a fit body.
5. You decided long ago that your kids must have a better childhood than the one you had. You know you’ll do anything to make sure of that.

Not even remotely correct, but interesting nonetheless? It’s a perfect snapshot of the type of person I’m primarily attracted to, though, if that’s anything.

I got this exact answer as well!

I love writing fanfiction, but there's just one thing I can never do. Any time I try to write anything smuttier, in the more NSFW range, it ends up being very stilted. Do you have any tips on how to write smut and make it more genuine?

Intimate scenes are hard, and writing posts about intimate scenes without them becoming littered with inadvertent innuendo is even harder, so apologies in advance for that XD

I definitely don’t think you’re on your own in finding NSFW stuff difficult to create. I hate and love them in equal measure, because they’re just so challenging. For me, the reason my initial sex scenes came off as stilted was because I was too tied up in the logistics. (Whose hands are where, why’s John still got his socks on, all that.) A lot of people fall into the trap of over-describing the physical back and forth of sexual acts, and as such and can read a bit like an instruction manual.

reading NSFW scenes that you fel get it right can help. Take a look at what other author’s do. How much do they actually describe what’s where directly to the reader, and how much of it’s implied through the character’s actions rather than bluntly stated?

The best way I found for making it more natural was to rope in the other senses and use them as much as I could without it becoming weird. How it feels, smells, tastes, sounds… 

Basically, it’s all about making it more than just a description of a sexual act. What they’re doing doesn’t matter so much as what they’re getting out of it, if that makes sense.

My process is that I tend to write a very loose framework of how the sexual act will go, indicating where everyone’s bits are at various points. Then you use those to anchor the rest of your prose, linking each one up with a mixture of description and dialogue. it stops the whole situation becoming procedural and places the reader more immediately within the intimacy of the scene.

The best sex is about more than just the physical, and I suppose the best sex scenes are too. =D

Berlynn Wohl offers some great advice in Berlynn Wohl’s Awesome Slash Tutorial For Cool People It’s long, and obviously E rated, but has brilliant tips. Take what’s helpful to you, and leave the rest (as applies with all writing advice, anywhere, especially mine!)

Hope that helps!

This is exactly how I wrote my sex for Checkpoint. I start with a framework, and then write snippets as they come.

Smut writing is like pulling teeth for me, I fight for every word. Armpit here, start of the suck job, neck there, end of the suck job, belly a few days later, cock worship/the middle of the suck job typed out on my phone because inspiration struck while I was in a stupid meeting.

It is a lot of cut and pasting, moving things around to improve flow, as I later fill in the Emotions and the Sensations, the Smells and the Tastes, but I am not one of those authors that is blessed to have smut fall from their fingertips, like mojoflower and kryptaria and bootsnblossoms.

I have watched the smut flow like water and it is consistently a miracle to me.

They say practice. The more you write it the easier it comes. But there are plenty of writers that fight for every word. You are not alone!!

You can also do team work!! I only really enjoy writing the smut!! I can help if you like
