This is such a prude-y question. As practice I recently wrote out a scene between two people having a work fling. Its based on work crush I had ;o) I am happily married. My question for you is that when you or your husband write out sex scenes in your novels does it ever weird either of you out? You can tell I don’t share my writing life very much with my husband.

Great question. I think the bottom line is that people tend to assume that fiction is autobiographical and there ain’t nothing you can do abut it. But it sounds like the sex scene in question is more inspired by the work crush than with your husband. Awkward. There are sex scenes in my husband’s book, and I definitely recognize him/us in the proceedings. It’s not oogey to me because a) I’m a terribly sophisticated reader and b) I’m only concerned that the scene is well written and believable and necessary. Almost every sex scene I’ve read in submitted manuscripts over the years is written with a Vaseline lens, and the woman’s climax is usually marked by PERSPIRATION ON HER BROW breaking out in tiny beads.
How do you write good sex scene?
