Porn Rock Star

The joy of writing about sex occurred to me many years ago when I started writing fan fiction. I didn’t get into Slash Fiction, but I wrote some pretty steamy scenes with my characters and the characters from the various TV shows. Believe it or not, I started with a show about World War II and I was so innocent that just showing the characters in bed seemed overtly sexual. Note to younger self: You ain’t written nothing yet!

I began writing Regency Romances because I loved the genre and the language and the whole setup. A virgin or severely naive heroine fit right in with a society that talked about chicken breasts as white meat and used scarfs to cover the shapely legs of pianos. If a woman sat on a chair that retained the heat of a man who had sat there before, she must jump up and find another seat. Repressive doesn’t even begin to paint this picture.

But what if? What if a young woman dressed as a boy and went with her brothers to a whore house? What if a governess found the eligible brother of her employer irresistible? What if a couple ended up in the sewers of London and to relieve the stress, they gave in to their mutual attractions?

I have all of those stories in my portfolio, only one of them available to the public. Somewhere around the time I wrote that story, my idea for The Bowman’s Inn popped up. I wouldn’t call that porn, exactly, but still, there’s a lot of hot and heavy action going on in my stories. Others, too, made use of the opportunity to let their inner sex fiend out.

Recently, when I should have been writing on the London Sewers book or rewriting my nicely rejected book, I found myself sucked into an anthology with rewritten fairy tales using modern settings and spicy goings-on. I can do that! I’m a human giver, after all, according to my processing of Emily Nagoski’s talk at my RWA chapter meeting recently. Yes, you’ll get the whole story there in a few weeks.

In I jumped with a rowdy, raunchy retelling of Rumpelstiltskin that gave away the key surprise early on. I don’t think that hurts the story at all. But I soon became aware from the feedback that no one else was writing the level of sex for the anthology that I was. I may have misunderstood the whole premise of the book. But too late, I was committed to the process and the story.

I had a wide range of comments about the sex. From “This is great!” to “This is straight porn, no romance involved”. The rewrite was fun, put more depth in the characters and more fun in the story. Suggestions for cutting the last threesome and putting in a romantic scene for the main couple didn’t strike me as fitting the arc of the story. The romance comes after the heroine learns the truth about the handsome man she’s been having sex with for a few weeks.

Here are some of the comments about the short story:

“Love the setup and the pacing is brisk which I like. Would love a little extra emotion from her from time to time so I can connect with her more, and maybe more connection between Annie and Jude beyond the physical. But that’s just me!”

“Wow, I envy your ability to just knock out sexy times like that.”

“[T]he sex scenes were fantastic!”

“A little envious I can’t write such hot sex scenes.”

And that’s when I decided I was a Porn Rock Star. Yes, do you need a hot story written for you and your significant birthday with hot sex to brighten up a birthday or anniversary? I’m the top of the list of people who could do that for you. No need to look in the back of a men’s magazine, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you with a quote. Must be 18 years old or older, of sound mind and a resident of planet Earth.

On second thought, I don’t have time for that. I’m going to keep working on the stories and I will be sure to alert you when the anthology comes out. Thanks for reading, I’ll be back on Sunday.
