How To Write Hot Sex Scenes
by Gabrille Bisset
Thanks Niina for having me here for Blood Avenged's book tour.
One of the most important parts of an erotic romance author's job is writing really hot sex scenes. Each writer has his or her own methods. Some need to drink to get themselves into a state that is less inhibited, and some listen to sexy music. So what do I do? I write exactly what I fantasize about when I think about my hero in whatever book I'm writing.
So take Vasilije from Blood Avenged. Tall, incredibly built, with black hair and blue eyes, he's gorgeous, so it's a good place to begin thinking about just looking at him. My heroes are always men I find appealing, so it's just a matter of thinking about what I'd like to do with him if he were standing in front of me.
For Sasa, the heroine in Blood Avenged, Vasilije is pure sex. He's unlike anyone she's ever met, and he's attracted to her. Something in the way he speaks and stands so close thrills her like nothing else she's ever felt. The reader senses his effect on her through her words and movements.
With a male like Vasilije, sensuality is everything. He's consumed with enjoying the sensations around him. For his character, much of the sexual experience is sensory. He loves the feel of Sasa's hands on his skin. He relishes the taste of her tongue as it sweeps over his lips. His excitement is raised as he hears the need in her voice as she begs him to give her what she wants.
For me, sex scenes are just a natural extension of my own fantasies and my characters' personalities. I use techniques I've enjoyed, those I've seen in movies or on tv and haven't had the pleasure to experiment with yet, and the tried and true things like kissing and make them unique to the characters I have in the scene. Their personalities dictate how they'll approach sex, and with that in mind, I let them enjoy themselves.
It's hard to believe this is considered a job.
