Literotica? Really? Are we talking about curtains that blow gently in the wind as a book chapter fades or something that sticks around longer and peers between the sheets as the steam blows?
Aren’t you about writing thrillers, Michael? What are you doing dabbling in the arts of sensuality?
Yes. I write tease too. Tease is stimulating. Sex, life, and death — all can be written with a tease. The tease is entertaining. It’s titillating. The trick is blending them the right way to make tease work.
Murder narratives often contain sex. Kissing is sex. Hugs are sex too. Touches, glances, intentions — all are sex. Leg-twitching, shudder-shaking bedroom action raises tension. I include tension for all of these. They go together.
Lori Beeton (a huge Dean Koontz fan) said my style of literotica was unusually feminine. She says I take my time. The sex isn’t in your face. It’s about the build-up, not the intercourse itself. I guess she’s right. I favour the tension that grows between lovers. I let it build and swirl. Sex is just a conclusion.
Eyes that shift. Breathing that falters. Secret desires are revealed one whisper at a time. That’s what makes for a better read. Good sex is all about the ‘unspoken’ words as much as the acts that accompany them. I like the anticipation, the doubt, and the uncertainty of what may (or may not) take place from second to second. How we communicate our desire and make first contact is what it’s all about baby!
Savour that feeling!
Read about it in my books!
“Forman’s writing style is artful, with the protagonist Mitchell’s warped thought processes masterfully exposed. The author has a powerful and vivid command of language and his word pictures are stark and disturbingly real.”
– Linda J Bettenay, author of ‘Secrets Mothers Keep’ and ‘Wishes For Starlight’.
