Butt- as in 'he thrust into her butt"- Really?? There aren't that many words for your backside but almost any of them would have been a better choice. Butt sounds crude unless you are writing a guide to potty-training.

How about ass, buttocks- hell, even rear would have been better.

Thrusting into her buttocks doesn't make a lot of sense unless he's giving her a shot.

Well, I wouldn't want to read about thrusting into her backdoor, asshole, puckered passage,or rosebud... Using buttocks or something similar just gives a better image (at least to me) :)

You forgot "cornhole", "bunghole", "poopchute", "brown puckered star", etc.

Sphincter isn't much better. Almost too clinical.

clittie

Seriously? Wow.

...Add "cunny" to the list. I've seen it used in those nasty back-of-mag porn ads where the woman being quoted is intended to appear "cute" or "innocent".

As in "Fuck my sweaty cunny and fill it with your manbatter"

And what is it with those ads using words like "sweaty" or "stinky" when describing genitals? Does anyone want that?

'Cunny' just sounds very dirty, right along with 'quim'.

Is it wrong that all I can picture is a naughty schoolgirl, hair done up in pigtails, bent over a desk? Her proper English voice asking for asking for a spanking and to have her cunny stroked.

*holding my side laughing*

Oh wait... that's actually pretty hot. ;) Except I prefer the word pussy.(Not to worry- she's definitely an adult in my fantasy- I mean, mind)

Describing a penis as a 'poking pole' is not sexy.

That is all.

Nor is 'throbbing manhood' which is a phrase my wife's romance/sex novels always use. It brings to mind kicks to the groin, ice packs, and two weeks on the couch begging to die.

Throbbing? Do these women have Supergirl's vision capabilities? Can they see the man's pulse and blood pressure? I picture a bad 50s sci-fi film with some sort of alien with big veins over its head pulsing up and down thanks to some off-camera sfx person squeezing a rubber siphon bulb. It conjures the sound of a heartbeat. Seems ripe for an Edgar Allen Poe reboot, such as The Telltale Schlong.

If it could throb as the phrase implies, well, the local adult store would have not a single toy on the shelves because there would be no need. I'm sure someone would have trained theirs to buzz and vibrate as well. And likely as not, every male would die within six months of puberty because their blood pressure would have to be 400 over 200.

Funny, but not a turn on.

Come to think of it, I should use it as a story title. The Case of the Throbbing Manhood. Or The Throbbing Manhood from Mars.

I agree. The only time my junk felt like it was throbbing was about 6 hours after I had my vasectomy - and really, I was in no mood to determine how "throbbing" it was. Thankfully, I had a pack of frozen peas ready and waiting...

I'm with you there. I've never had a throbbing erection or manhood, though I can do some interesting stunts by flexing (and relaxing) my muscles... My girl will be trying to "service" it, and I'll make it bob out of her reach, then back in, then away again...

This reminds me of the scene in Zoolander where Derrick is being given a massage by someone who looks disturbingly like a Monty Python cast member dressed as a woman with the Princess Leia danish do, and his equipment is zipping back and forth avoiding the masseur's touch. If I wanted to write that in a romance, as a bit of play, I would not know where to begin without making the entire thing a farce.

I hear ya there. When I saw that part in Zoolander, all I could think of was my FemDom associates on FetLife. I have no personal issues with them or their own particular kinks, but FemDom (especially the ball-busting variety) totally squicks (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/squick) me.

Likewise, if I tried to write something like that into a romance bit, I'd have to work hard to avoid making it satirical or farcical. I'm sure I could do it, but I'd have to tread lightly.

In defense of "throbbing", my other half's knob (hey, another turnoff word!) pulses visibly up and down in a throbbing motion when I get him sufficiently excited.

I always use vagina accurately but I've been told that my sleaze is too clinical by somebody who dislikes that word. I generally opt for pussy though I know that some readers think the word is silly.


I love pussy, makes me all warm and fuzzy.


I will write cunt and not mean it in a derogatory way--in fact I'd rather not use it as an epithet, unless there's a potential to flip the script, as they say. To me *cunt* is a powerful word, not a dirty word. When the narrator uses it, it indicates powerful feelings on the part of the owner of said vulva. It is carnal. It is precisely raw--come to think of it if the panties are still on it's almost certainly not going to be a *cunt*.


Cunt is a great word, especially if you put "magnificent" in front of it.

MargueriteMing
06-23-2011, 03:42 PM
The word 'cunt' seems to me, more severe than any other euphemism for the vagina. I read it in the first or second chapter of the novella I'm reading right now, and it jarred. Why? Am I offended by it? No, not offended, but as I said, it reads as severe. It's a bit like reading The Tale of Fluffykins the Bunny and seeing something like, "And Fluffykins bounded along the road, clutching his precious lettuce leaf, as happy as a motherfucker, yo."

MargueriteMing
06-23-2011, 03:58 PM
Agreed. As an intensifier fuck tends to be counterproductive. It can numb. Sometimes I think a character can say "fuck yeah" or a surprised "fuck me" without spoiling the mood, and I myself will sometimes say "that's so fucking hot" without turning myself off, but it's horribly abused.

Reminds me of the movie Heathers, and the line "Fuck me gently with a chain saw." I spit coke through my nose at that.

Thing is, from reading through this, it appears that every term and description possibly used in a sex scene will bother or amuse or disgust someone. And furthermore, or so it seems, a lot of people seem convinced that their particular set of words are the obvious right ones and the rest are the obvious disgusting ones. So what's an erotica writer to do, except know that no matter how they write it, someone will be grossed out and someone else will laugh?

But that's possibly too serious for this thread :)

But, that is a microcosm of the entire publishing world.

I've read several books lately (not erotica, I think one was erotic romance, though?) where the author used the word "fisted" and I was completely thrown. It took me a few re-reads each time to realize that the character was just making a fist, but not actually doing anything with it. Who says that? I thought the verb "to fist" was thoroughly dirty nowadays. It really confused me.

Anyone who has a "screaming orgasm" is just...weird for me. I'm used to hearing that phrase used in terms of the alcoholic drink, and in a sexual context it just makes me hear the sound of one of those bitches on murder mystery shows screaming when they discover a dead body, and I just think "who'd wanna fuck someone who screams bloody murder when she cums?"

Moaning and groaning is fine, screaming is not. Ever. If you full-on scream during orgasm, I will find you weird. That being said, someone biting their bottom lip during orgasm to stop themselves from being too loud is one of the sexiest things a guy can do.

As a writer in the "adult" genre, I think it all depends on the context. Any word can be hot used correctly. I can't stand mainstream erotica and I don't write mainstream erotica. It's all in the eye of the beholder. "dick", "pussy", all the usual suspects, can either sound stupid and phony or they can be used quite effectively. Therefore, for me anyway, it's not the word(s) that's the problem, it's the setting, the way the word is used. And after all, you're gonna have to use many of the usual words in any adult writing whether you like it or not, otherwise your stuff will be pointless as a "turn on" mechanism. Any kind of "dirty talk" is fair game as long as it's authentic to the situation.
Most mainstream erotica is dull, it's not genuine, and I write more in a hardcore style aimed at the male audience, so obviously I'm gonna use a lot of explicit dirty language. But again, it depends.....so, I'd have to say, there are NO words that make me gag. I think what you really mean is do they make you gag used in a phony way? yeah, "moan" "groan", "tool" "rod" "boner", "pussy", "plunge" all the rest of it DOES make me gag when used in a softcore dull Harlequin erotica style, but if you put that stuff where it belongs, no, it won't make me gag....

Yes, very true. It's obvious to me that many of the examples in this thread that people object to as being ridiculous, hackneyed, stilted, etc. is because they're seeing them used in ridiculous, hackneyed, stilted, "erotica".. I recently wrote an adult ebook where the two main characters use a lot of dirty words, just cuz that's who they are, use of nasty language gets them off, they're perverts, swingers on their yearly orgy beach vacation, and that's part of who they are. Hopefully, a reader will "get" it and not say, "oh wow, boner again? rod? tool?" yeah, because it works in that setting.

We ought to have a thread of "turn on" sex words.
We see here what doesn't work for a lot of us; I'd be interested in seeing what does.

I often find myself stymied when it comes to writing sex scenes, which is a shame because my stories frequently require them.
Everything sounds trite and cheesy. Everything sounds fake.
I'm afraid my scene will only embarrass readers and make them uncomfortable, since it's an embarrassment even to me.
I end up cutting it, and compromising the story.

It would be helpful to me to have a thread where we discuss what works in erotic literature.

Include more than just "tab A/slot B" physical description. Include the other senses. Show what's going on in the POV character's head. Show what it is about the lust-object character that turns the POV character on (beyond "nice tits/package"). There's so much good characterization that can be packed into one really good sex scene. Show me who/how someone fucks, and I come away knowing a lot about them.

This thread has kept me mightily entertained while waiting for my membership to be approved. Thank you. :D I believe at "ooze" my husband requested I cease reading out choice funnies, lest he never touch my foo again. Yes, I submit "foo" as a silly ladypart word. ;) Not to be used when trying to be sexy, and never in writing.

And, I'm delighted to note that no-where in this thread have I seen "jutting proudly." As in, his erection jutting proudly. Most likely from his pubic thatch, I don't remember, but I distinctly remember laughing out loud during what was promising to be quite a steamy scene once his proud jutting commenced. :lol: Mmm, nice.

I was writing an explicit section today and realised I only say cock. Not penis, not member, tool or manhood. Just cock is fine. Likewise breasts. I might have gotten a "creamy globes" in there at one point (I might now be cringing slightly with that admission). But breasts are breasts, no other word works for me (heaving bosom?!).

Anyway, hello forum and thank you for an utterly hilarious thread!

I really can't stand when a vagina is described in any way that makes it seem mechanical; any of that "her lips gripped his fingers like a vise" stuff. No one's genitals should be described like they're metal, or stone (rock-hard, granite, etc.), or anything else cold and unyielding. Just icky.

But I do have two pieces of advice, for what they're worth.
1. These days, avoid the purple. It used to be popular, but metaphor and extravagant descriptions only make people laugh.
2. Write from the perspective of your character, not from you. Make them do what they would do, not what you would do, and use the language accordingly.

Also not too fond of "F-Hole". Strangely I don't mind clinical terms, at least for lady bits, though I occasionally get a giggle out of "scrotum", only because it sounds like a decorating term to me (We've refinished the stucco on the house in Scrotum style because I find it so classy:ROFL:)

I agree, cunt is both an unlovely word in and of itself and one which carries a whole lot of ugly, insulting baggage. The only way I could use it in a love scene is if I wrote hetero my couple liked talking dirty to one another, which we sometimes do.

I love, love, love the word cunt.

To me, it's a strong word, where as 'pussy' is a soft word. I use both, really, but for me, I just looove cunt. Cunny is adorable, as well.

Then again, I don't tend towards romance and lean more towards rough.

I don't like childish terms, like 'hotdog' for penis, or 'cookie' for vagina, though.

I could be wrong, but I think writers try to use "womb" to say how "deep" a guy was/is. I mean it's still wrong, but I think that's their logic behind it.

I haven't read much erotica, unfortunately. The last one I read (I forget the title) had a word so jarring that it made me stop reading half way through.

The woman's breasts were described as "monstrous"--I suppose meaning large. But... yeah... bad mental images.

Staying in the region of Vaginaville, I don't like the word 'cunt' in erotic romance. It's a harsh word, often used as an insult, and very jarring to read in what are often supposed to be love scenes.

A momentarily serious post, and if you meet me elsewhere on AW, I shall return to my normal, irreverent self.


What if it is used in a non-romantic way like in a hardcore erotic fantasy where the main character is supposed to be hated?

Vulva...

I'd like to thank you all. Few things in my life have made me laugh as hard as this thread has.

I have been taking notes.
TWAT - I'd only ever use it in a derogatory sense. ("a foolish or despicable person", from dictionary.com)
LADYGARDEN - Only if we're doing agriculture down there. Though it might be the appropriate place to plant a 'manroot'. :)
VULVA - I'm with those who find it just so wrong.
PRICK - Is something you might do to yourself with a needle if you're not careful enough. Though, it does have the virtue of being recyclable. As in, "the prick pricked her with his prick".

These are only my humble opinions... and thus should be taken as gospel. :p

Scrotum.

Just doesn't do it for me for some reason. A hairy, wrinkly kind of word to me.

I actually knew a dog named Scrotum. He was a terrier/mutt who was a falconer's dog... nothing like watching a grown man yell "Scrotum!" in the middle of a blackberry bush while this ugly little dog flushes out a rabbit for a hawk. Totally not sexy (okay, the falconer was... something about men wearing leather chaps)



"Nether hole." Cunt. Asshole. "Channel". I guess there's a fine line between too crude or too flowery.

I flipped to a random page, and of the many words in front of me, my eyes found exactly two:

'nether lips'

I've seen it used but, in my mind, the phrase would look more at home in a sci-fi story. "Fire up the warp drive, Scotty. I suspect there's a swarm of hostile nether lips hiding among the asteroid debris in the next quadrant."
