Sometimes, you need a lick in the nether regions to get the muse all worked up.
If you’re having some issues writing a sex scene, whether it be the kind that starts out with a soft, loving kiss and fades to black, or a detailed group orgy, sometimes you have difficulty figuring out the which person is going to “insert tab A into slot B”. But worse than that, you may need some help visualizing which position they should be in when doing the whole naked tango.
While it’s great to have a partner to grab a hold of and say ‘let’s try this!’ it doesn’t always work that way. Unless you have mirrors on your walls and/or ceiling, it’s kind of hard to watch yourself having intercourse. Even if you have a camera poised… it’s not going to capture it the way you want to see it and I doubt you really want to ask a friend or two to get footage of you getting all down and dirty with your partner.
However, it will get you all those spine-tingling feelings and you can use those in the story to describe what your characters are feeling. If you don’t have someone to grab and drag to the room of your choice, there’s always free pr0n. Just make sure that you’re virus scanner is up to date and fully armed (because, you know, we don’t need any STDs up in here, up in here).
I also like visiting sites that sell toys and equipment. You can read the reviews on the products and find out what people enjoyed about them. I will warn you though, some people go seriously above and beyond with their reviews. It’s like they need to write down every detail of what occurred while they were strapped into the device of their torment and pleasure. So, beware. You’ll either be tilting your head wondering why on earth they thought they needed to include all the dirty details, tantalizingly amused, or you’ll want to use a variation of it in a story.
What do you do in order to get your muse all worked up and panting?
