If people wanted the ‘p’ stuff, this is where they’d go.

Here are some tips on writing erotica from Misty Wells. Enjoy!

The Basics

Yes, the purpose of your story is primarily to arouse, but people also read erotica to escape into a fantasy world. To create an effective one, you’ll need a little more than a few dirty words and some naughty situations. Along with your graphic, steamy scenes, a solid plot and well developed characters will get you a long way.

Spellcheck Is Your Friend

Erotica may have a different purpose to other genres, but the basic rules of writing still apply. Check your spelling. Be careful with your grammar. Once you’re done with your first draft, edit, edit, edit, and ALWAYS have someone proofread your work for anything you may have missed. Sloppy writing is unappealing and unsexy. Ask people for feedback, and listen to it; there is always room for improvement.

Don’t Be Bashful

Though erotica isn’t p^^n, it still needs to be naughty and very rude – there really is no room for shyness! Don’t be afraid to use words you would never usually use, or write about things that you’ve never experienced. You might feel a little awkward, giggly or self-conscious at first, but you’ll stop blushing soon enough. You could even explore some of your own fantasies…

Research

As with all writing, it’s important to do your research. If you have no personal experience of a certain act you want to write about, the internet will be more than happy to help (remember rule 34.) You might even find yourself looking up some run-of-the-mill stuff, like what one of your character’s jobs involves, for example. Boring, yes, but if you want a good story it’s still essential.

Take Your Work Seriously!

Yes, writing dirty stories can be awkward at times. Sprinkling a bit of humour into your work is fine, but don’t write it in inappropriately, don’t make a scene comic to ease any awkwardness you might feel whilst writing it, and please, please don’t try to make jokes with the reader. They want smut, not one-liners.

Don’t Try To Emulate the Ups and Downs of Real Sex

Foot cramp, false starts, not really being in the mood… just don’t go there. I’ll trust you to know why.

Watch Your Dialogue

Dirty talk from your characters is good. Great, even. But make it dirty. Don’t use terms like ‘penis’ or ‘vagina.’ Make good use of the harder words – your readers want a naughty experience. Curse, be rude, lose your inhibitions and your characters will too. Romantic dialogue is fine, but make sure there’s a sexy edge to it – you don’t want more cheese than a mouse’s treat cupboard.

Avoid Clichés

As with all writing, keep it exciting. Mix it up and let your imagination run away with you. Don’t use unimaginative similes or metaphors. If the last five books you read all have a scene containing the same act, don’t use it in your story. If you want to write something in but haven’t seen anything similar in anything else you’ve read, then brilliant! All the more reason to use it.

Lastly – Read Other Erotica

Not only will this feed you ideas for your own work, it’ll also give you a better idea of the styles and techniques generally used in erotic writing. In any genre, the best writers are the most avid readers; erotica is no exception.

Just when they’re contentedly recovering from full-blown sex at her desk in their office, who should walk in using her spare key but Luna, their part-time employee and former sexual partner.

As usual Luna gets the upper hand in the conversation, reminding Mia of her role in the development of her relationship with Rafe. But after consultation with Rafe, Mia sets out to take back control once and for all. She brutally seduces Luna, giving her a severe paddling before applying a wand to stimulate her into multiple orgasms, and then demands her own reciprocal satisfaction.

Third book in the Disciplining of Mia series

Mia has got what she wants: a relationship with Rafe, the man she loves, in which his dominant personality and her submissive one can be fully exercised. She delights in the fact that they look like an ‘ordinary’ couple and other people are not aware of their secret, namely, that every part of her belongs to him.

After a boring night in the theatre, he tries out a new device on her as she lies helplessly tied and blindfolded: he drips candle wax all over her oiled body. While he is showering her afterwards, it transpires that Luna, their employee, is due to come and ‘play’ – only that neither is aware of having invited her.

Luna’s presence immediately changes the dynamic between the couple, causing Mia to behave badly and incur a spanking with hand and belt from Rafe. They proceed directly from there into a threesome, which exhausts and satisfies them, but which terminates in Luna making an unexpected and unwelcome declaration of love to Mia.

Rafe drags out of Mia what it is that is bothering her, and Mia is surprised that Rafe doesn’t defend the other woman. It seems they would both prefer to be always just the two of them, and to celebrate, Rafe proposes the purchase of a new toy with which to complete Mia’s punishment for her bad behavior.

Mia gets taught a lesson

Mia expected her newly discovered dominant/submissive relationship with Rafe to continue without interruption, but when Rafe goes away, she illogically blames Luna, their employee, for bringing their natures out into the open in the first place. Luna responds by subjecting Mia to her own brand of domination, which includes a hard spanking.

Luna has had a handle on Rafe’s disappearance and he now suddenly returns. Mia reassures him that she desperately desires what he has to offer, and he provides a lesson in impulse control, using a tool she has never seen before – a vibrating wand.

Working late one evening, Luna decides to prove a point by demonstrating Mia’s natural submissiveness to her.

Later Mia finds out that Luna has been encouraging Rafe to explore his dominant side – a characteristic which he demonstrates most unequivocally when he takes a belt to Mia.
