Naughty Words

This book by Cara Bristol looks like it could be very useful to new writers of erotic sexual/spanking stories.

Here's the blurb...

If you've struggled to find the right tone for your romantic sex scene, stared at the computer for 15 minutes trying to come up with the perfect verb, become stymied because some terms are too crude while others are too flowery, or found yourself reusing the same words over and over, Naughty Words for Nice Writers, A Sexual and Spanking Thesaurus can help you break through those barriers. Cara Bristol, the author of 17 erotic romances, has written a guide to help you find the erotic words to write a sex scene that sizzles. Naughty Words for Nice Writers is packed with more than 1,200 usable, functional synonyms geared for romance, erotic romance, and erotica. Included are 28 different "erotic word lists" such as male and female anatomy, foreplay, orgasm, specific sexual acts and kink, sexual noises, spanking terminology, and much more. The guide offers suggestions on how to write a sex scene and how to tighten your writing so it sings. With an emphasis on verbs, this guide will help you "show" the intimacy between your characters rather than tell it. Whether you're writing a "fade to black" scene or a graphic and explicit one, Naughty Words for Nice Writers will give you the words. 

Spotted on Amazon.

Have a good week.

You have no need for this, you can describe your scenes in a delightful way. We on the other hand could well benefit.

I do think it looks very interesting, but I agree with one of the comments above. YOU could have written this book yourself.

Hi Ronnie, :) This looks like a very useful book for all of you writers out there! I can't imagine trying to write a hot Hot HOT scene, over and over, and trying to come up with new ways to describe it. Very cool! Many hugs,
