Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend, and are looking forward to the week ahead.
Today, I want to talk about sex ...
No, I'm not trying to start a Salt-n-Pepa reunion, I'd like some recommendations, please.
I've got to the part in my WiP where my couple have sex for the first time. I've always had this scene in mind, but when I was planning the story, in my head the scene was going to be erotica.
Now I've actually come to write that, I realize it won't work with the tone of the story. I'm not sure if there will even be a need to mention exact body parts or details.
What's important will be the feelings. The scene comes at a pivotal moment, where they've both quite vulnerable, and stripped of any bravado etc.
I've not written a love scene with this type of tone before - the ones I've written in the past have been more graphic - so I'm going to have to do some research.
Only, I don't know where to start. So, I'm throwing it open to you guys.
Give you your recommendations for the best sex scenes in novels, where the focus is on the emotional connection, more than the descriptions of the deed.
They can be from your own novels, or ones that you've read that really jumped out at you.
Thanks in advance for the help, and have a great week!
