Erotica or Not-Erotica

As I learn to be a writer of erotica I have found out something disturbing about myself. While my mind has no trouble envisioning scenes of passionate lovemaking, while I love reading other authors stories of wild menages, my Catholic school fingers have trouble typing the words it takes to tell the stories as clearly as they should. Having left that religion long behind for earth based pagan religions (read Witch), my fingers have apparently lagged behind and want me to use words that, well, don't exactly express my scenes in the way I want them to. But I have had a long talk with them, and they have agreed to try! So we shall see.... I don't want to have to get out the yardstick~!


  1. I think lots of erotica authors share this same feeling. What we see in our minds isn't always what we do in real life. And it's not always easy to translate those thoughts onto "paper". But you do a great job, Kate!

  2. Kate, I once had to review a romance where the devil's son was the hero of the book. My former Catholic school girl-self was in full-on rebellious mode! It was actually a well written, funny story, but my brain was not programmed to be cool with this concept and SQUEE'd the whole way through.

    So, I can relate in a way. :-)
