Words That Should Never Be Used....

....in SEX SCENES!


Here are my selections of those words that should NEVER grace a sex scene in literature.... Please share your own in the comments.

Tumescence


Spill


Burgeoning


Man-meat


Garden


Turgid


Suckle


This was one of *those* conversations at Eastercon that I thought would translate well to a blog environment. So, come forth and tell me all those words that simply have NO place in a moment of passion!

  1. "moist" and "pungent" should be reconsidered, too...

  3. Love this topic!

    Ugh- man-meat? Seriously? Gross...

    Another word is "quivering."

  4. Throbbing members and heaving bosoms are really (and sadly) overdone. When exactly does the bosom heave?

    Vagueness is more titilating than the mechanics of the act. Let the readers use some of their imagination.

  7. My sister once tried to convince me that there was a small town in Scotland called Throbbing Member. I didn't believe her.
    For long.

  8. "Supple" or "Melon-like" have my vote...

  9. Purple-headed warrior. Yeah, that shouldn't be used. Like ever.

    I DO however, think that women's breasts described as "creamy" is one of my faves that I DO like. I dunno why. :P

  10. Seriously? Man-meat? Oh sweet lord...

    I've heard quite a few of them. Sausage. Love hole. "Quivering love jelly." I don't think there's much that would surprise me anymore, and any that possibly could should NEVER be used in a sex scene.

    And as always, I love to point people to this site when such discussions occur! Enjoy!
