I don’t really like writing about sex.
This may be an odd confession, for a writer of a self-styled “sex blog,” but it’s true: I don’t like writing about sex.
Honestly, what is there to say? There are so many words one can use as stand-ins for “penis.” And honestly, once we’ve dispensed with “cock” and “dick,” we’re in the land of the comic. Ditto vaginas (after “pussy” and “cunt”), and breasts (after “breasts” and “tits”). Similarly, there’s a limited (though less so) universe of adverbs and adjectives suitable to descriptions of sex. And there are only so many ways that most people, that I, actually go about having sex. Ninety percent of the sex I have is on or near beds. Ninety percent involves one or the other using the bed for support in some form or fashion. And ninety percent of it involves two or more of the following: fingers, mouths, breasts, pussies, cocks, assholes.
Sure, there are exceptions: there’s the standing fuck, there’s the desk fuck, the wall fuck, the chair fuck. There’s the chair blowjob, the standing/kneeling blowjob. Etc.
This just isn’t what’s interesting to me about the sex I have, and it shows in my writing.
I just finished writing about part 1 of my most recent date with Véronique. I’ll post it shortly. But I’m struck: part 1 is the part that ends right before the sex begins, and there’s a big part of me that just wants to stop there, to say, “You know, then we had sex. She sucked my cock, I licked her pussy, we fucked a bit, and then we did it all again. And again. There was some laughing, some awkwardness, more than a little just raw hotness, and through it all, we both had a really fucking good time.”
I’m not sure what this is about, whether it’s interesting, or not. (It is to me, but I don’t know that that interest extends beyond me.)
You’ll get both part 1 and part 2 shortly. I’m just pausing here, as I write the two parts, to notice that it’s part 1 where all my energy goes. (V, you’re doing your Rashomon thing here, too; do you have thoughts? Is this the same for you? Different? Do you enjoy writing about the sex more than? the same as? less than? the lead-up?)
