ooh Linny what a great idea lol Never thought of combining them. At present the naughty fairies are investigating nude pixie ghosts.

Sherlock I have taken back in time and gone to the start of the agency - Agent F (firepoker) and Agent U (umbrella stand) are currently investigating someone's attempt to reduce the amount of steam at Humping Bridge railway station.

*wanders off to make this work*

Anya, I think its so funny that these are the stories that you make money from. And not surprising, really. I haven't read your naughty fairies stuff. It sounds worryingly cute. Linny, that's a really funny thought about the fairies and Sherlock.

It has grown lol went from one person giving me 10 for a bestman's speech with Sherlock spying on the couple to now a year on we have a wedding anniversary. People from that wedding asked for one for other weddings- then a civil partnership requested fairies. Yellow Snow has had her first request for a kinky personal story (someone wants to be a dwarf). February was really busy. It was never my plan - Sherlock was just a bit of silliness when I heard the name.

Thinking of starting a website with merchandise with t-shirts etc

LOL I may just give it a go although Watt is usually the naked one - he has a better looking beam and a strong long golden shaft Sherlock needs his jacket on or his hose blows early

They did say imagination, wonder if the fact my naughty fairies are male would be a step too far. I have a popstar gnomess, Genllie she is married to the pornstar Gnobit who is a philanderer - now gnomes like hot tubs. I also have Pippy the Pixette hmm Pippy and Gnellie are cornered by Foam and Watt and are rescued by fairies in hot pants hmm - she divorces or maybe murders Gnobit (maybe just render him worthy of his name) and runs off with Watt.

November is ages away - a Sherlock segment/story only takes a few hours of work even with editing.

It depends what stage I am at - editing takes me ages when I do it properly but this isn't so many words.

My seven year old daughter thinks my fairies are disgusting (I have some pictures I drew lol), but i reminded her that Oberon is male.

I do have a female fairy - they have a sister Milly and brother Billy but they live in Storyland and tell kids stories lol no sex allowed except for the odd small joke for parental reading benefit.

When Milly is playing around up her skirt pulling a face she is adjusting her knickers and trying to find her wand (ask any kids that reads it lol) - When Willy the Winking Winkle flashes all he is showing is his pretty lights.

Any newbie would look at this and think we're a bunch of lunatics,
I'm kinda a newbie here and, yeah, you seem like a bunch of lunatics. I'm liking it.

Writing sex? At some point you have to just do it. It's a bit like having sex: usually rather awkward at first and not necessarily mind-blowingly enjoyable, but it gets better with practice.

And if you don't want your Mom or whoever to read your stories with sex, don't show them. I write erotica under a pen name. My Mom has no clue, and I'm in my thirties with kids, so it's not like she doesn't know I know about sex.

My favourite description of sex is by Malorie Blackman, and she does it from the perspective of a seventeen (possibly eighteen) year-old girl - she describes it using very colloquial expressions, and tons of simile - there's a great, beautifully expressed simile about a coiled spring and then it's linked to the hot wires in a toaster and it just works so well.

I think a lot of people forget that your character is still having sex, and if you can make it personal to them, it maybe won't feel as awkward and different. Linking it to sense memories is in my opinion a really good device in spare amounts, too - "it reminded me of this", "it was like this".

Default You CAN write about sex tastefully

Writing about sex can be done tastefully (while also being exciting/stimulating).

In fact, the very first page of my book starts with an exciting (and tasteful) sex scene. This is also done without ever using any "dirty" words.

I don't think people want pornography. I think that they want erotica.

But I certainly do agree that it must be done with skill.

I was thinking the same. If writing it makes you uncomfortable, it may not be the time to put it into your fiction. Write about it in a form that you know will never been seen by anyone else: perhaps a document you delete when you finish. Once you're comfortable writing scenes as explicit as you think you need for your project, then start writing them. Otherwise, I suspect your internal discomfort will color the scene and make them come off as creepy or awkward. (Although if your goal is creepy and/or awkward, you might leverage your discomfort.)
