ILX 2014 Sex Writing Awards

Aimless sez:

good sex writing is as rare as hen's teeth.

if you go in for describing the physical details, you run into the problem that the physical actions are so wholly mundane that the feelings they engender seem all wrong. yet, if you leave the feelings out, all you get is a clinical description or rubbing this or inserting that.

if you try to disguise the mundanity of the actions by cloaking them in metaphor, you get all the laughable clichés of romance novels. if you try to ignore the physicality entirely and just describe the feelings, the feelings are so highly colored and changeable you can easily end up with the writing equivalent of a first grader's crayon picture.

you can't win.

the onus is on us to prove him wrong

your entries submissions will be polled. the deadline is some point later this month. extracts from nanowrimos/extant novelistic projects/published works if you're aeroboot tabano all accepted alongside standalone vignettes.

joke submissions will be considered carefully before inclusion.

start your engines.

good sex writing = hot sex writing or you're looking for sex writing that could be considered good on its literary/stylistic merits?

ideally both, mayne

lol nah as wins sez it can be either, neither or both depending on interpretation. ideally you'll try to make it in some way good but it's not for me to say in which way

So you sheepishly ask, "could you suck my balls?" hoping she will, and then she does, but all you can think about is the sound of your own voice asking "could you suck my balls?".

A lot of these are hilarious, I think they became quite popular among manga fans.

This one girl in college, just randomly went down on the ol' brazole one night. Didn't even say a word to me. My response to the deed "your gonna get fucked now". She obliged.

I want your thought-cock in my chubby public-field ass! Please, corporal dogs, tread carefully upon these next perillous keyboard stages of the puppetry of the 'friends'.

This is a particularly immortal sneeze of mace.

why do I hate that thing (excluding imago, marcos) (wins), Monday, 8 December 2014 00:52 (two years ago) Permalink

erm, as it was all for a dare there was no consummation, but i was manually stimulated in turn by the girl i pulled and a boy who was also in the room, who wanted to see my knob in a fully erect state. alas, i had drunk far too much to get it all the way up (it still beat HIS even at 90%) and the full glory was spared. there were 3 boys and 3 girls in the room, all 3 boys and 1 of the girls were fully naked, and the other 2 girls were only wearing knickers. the night ended (after the naked girl upped sticks and headed off) with a wanking contest, the 2 remaining girls (whose idea it was) watching intently as we strived to bring ourselves to climax. it took me about twice as long as anyone else, mostly through fear of being struck by another's jet, being as i was in the centre of the three. throughout, i was made up in lipstick, rouge and a headband, and when i had been wearing clothes it had been drag. one of those ordinary student nights, then...
