Love Scenes

I don't need descriptions of slippery clefts. I know my anatomy.
I also know my husband's.
I want the escalating thrill of a new love--without actually having to do it.
I want foreplay that sets my heart on fire, and bed (or tabletop) action that ignites my body.

Bertrice Small writes sex scenes that sizzle with purpose and imagination. No one does it better, in my opinion.


  1. I agree. I love the build up, but I don't need too many anatomy details about the deed itself.

  2. Depends on the writer, I think. Writers like Pamela Britton and Vicki Lewis Thompson can write a love scene, no matter how much or how little detail, and make them work.

    Of course, this is my opinion only! :)

  3. I do like sexy scenes but euphemisms, please.
    I have seen a lot of references to the male hen for certain anatonomical body parts and it's such a turn off, not romantic at all. Passion is so important and deep feeling which can be conveyed without too much description.

  4. Agree with euphenisms and not anatomy details. It's the love and passion which are important, not the graphic descriptions of body parts. And definitely not the coarse descriptions of them either. Such a turn off, IMO.
