When you write steamy fiction it can spark some interesting conversation. Once all of the flushed faces dissipate the good stuff starts flowing and soon you are either turned on, laughing so hard your stomach hurts or you're riveted at your friends political ideals. Okay, so here is a share from a stomach killer.
I was talking with some friends about naughty bit terms. There are only so many ways to describe body parts and we went through a ton of them, remarking on how we felt about their impact (if there was one) and their usage. Here is a few of my opinions on some naughty bits:
Vagina - The word is too formal for me. I want my doctor to use it, not my lover. It's not a favorite of mine, I am not even sure if I've used it.
Cunt - This one was about 60-40 in favor. I personally like it. I think it's hot and heavy. Not my first choice when writing a romantic scene though.
Cooter - I'm giggling already! And I don't know what to say other than this is a confession, take it as you like, I dig it. I like the word cooter. I don't know why, what the hell? It's going on a sticky right now. There it is. I've never used it in a book, but I like it anyway!
Love Tunnel - No. Just no.
Hot Box - Forget it.
Muff - A tad boring.
Snatch - No. You can do this to my purse not to my body.
Cum Bucket - definitely not sexy. I have no use for it, although cum slut might be fun.
Va-jay-jay - In conversation among girlfriends certainly, in description never.
Twat - I don't like and wouldn't use it, but I have no hate for it either.
Pussy - my absolute favorite. I love this word. It can be naughty or sexy.
Penis - It's formal but I do like it more than I do vagina. I have used it and it works for me (pun intended!)
Cock - My favorite word for the male side of things. It just has a rough edge to it but is still sexy.
Dick - Sure, why not? He's a nice guy.
Schlong - I just think of dildos, bright pink or purple!
Pole - Not sexy and I don't ever want to run into one with my car. I mean that would suck.
Rod - Conversation possibly, descriptive scene? No way.
Boner - Sure a guy might call it that. I'll bite. Oh I mean, no, I don't bite honest.
Dipstick - I've met plenty so no thanks
Tool - I have tons of them and they are all so different!
Chubby- How dare you!
Okay so as you can see being an romance writer has its perks, great dinner conversation! Seriously folks, next time you are rolling into a restaurant with your besties try discussing their preferred terms. I guarantee fun will follow.
I write about: love, fantasy, hate, vampires, jealousy, lust, supernatural, murder, deceit, attraction. And sex.
I write what I like.
