Being single, if I know there's a sex scene coming up, I don't masturbate for a day or two. That usually helps the writing of the sex scenes (hell, it helps with writing Service as well...then again Grandma going on a bitch session helps even more).

 

 

If you're not single, it's kind of hard not to engage in activity with your significant other. Maybe writing it out as a form of planning session for when he gets home?

Dom,

 

First, let me say that even though I'm not a self-identified Domaholic, I really enjoy your stories.

 

But I'm one of those 'skim over the sex scenes' people when it comes to TLW and I want to explain why. These are just my opinions, of course.

 

1) In TLW, the plot development is much more interesting. Consider it a compliment. The sex scenes go on for too long, and I just want to know what happens next. I'd be happy if you wrote "And then they had sex" and then got back to the -real- story.

 

2) I find Owen-Aiden sex to be a bit too 'shmoopy' for lack of a better word. They love each other. That's nice. Really. But the romance between then comes through much better in the scenes that happen outside of the bedroom, while the shmoopiness gets in the way of the sex.

 

Who knows? Maybe if you cut the sex scenes out altogether, then it would seem like there was a hole in the story. But personally, I wouldn't mind seeing the PG-13 version, because I'm sure it would still be awesome.

I couldn't disagree more! Personally I love the sex scenes and think they are a natural part of a story about two people who are in love. Without any sex scenes it feels like something is missing, that's just my opinion anyway! Dom, I'm sure you'll get in the right mood eventually. Just wait and see, it will happen :D

Dom, I love how you write sex scenes. It's funny that you should mention this issue now, because when I was reading the romp with Aiden and Owen in the last chapter of TLW, I thought that it was particularly sizzling. I also admire the amount of story 'time' you devote to sex. So many net authors of gay fiction either overdo it radically, or shy away from it unrealistically. You get the balance just right. Same with the romance: you show your characters developing the capacity to love another man, but it never descends into sugary dreck. Not even close. So keep it... up. :P

Personally, I think that beyond the first few times at the beginning of two characters' relationship, to set the mood so to speak, writing elaborate sex scenes longer than a paragraph (or a sentence) is a waste of your effort.

 

That is like authors that insist on describing every piss, shit, and toothbrushing that occurs. We all know the 3S of the morning, we can just be told that he got up, or was late, or whatever. DK and you are great in that you don't do that, and yet the necessary level of detail is there. Sex scenes are the same. Sometimes the mood does need to be set, but most times, a hint is plenty enough.

 

Besides, in my opinion, the depth of their love is not conveyed by how often they declare their love in between orgasms, but how they behave towards one another out there in the real world. That's were the heart string are pulled. And that is also the only place the story is happening.

 

So, yes, I skim.

I'm going to have to agree with the folks that love the way you write your sex scenes. I'll admite that when I first stumbled onto your stories, a "quick fix," as you put it, was exactly what I was looking for. As I got into your work, though, I really became emotionally involved in the lives of the characters you've created, so the stories weren't really about the sex for me, anymore, but it doesn't change the fact that every now and then, I'll want to satisfy those urges for "quick fixes" (sorry if that's TMI, hehe), and your stories, in addition to being well-told and emotionally complex, can also be very erotic, and I love that. If people don't like sex (if that's possible), they are more than welcome to skim through those sections. That's their prerogative. But some of us really like all of the work that you do, sex scenes included. Please don't stop including those, as well!

I don't mean to sound or feel like a sex addict, but suddenly I do. Personally, there are two major things that, when I read them, I get that feeling "oh, man - this is really, really good." -- Sex & Confrontation. I think maybe I have to explain.

 

I don't know what it was, but in DD when Luke was being mean and nasty to Rory about the whole Aaron thing, I really put myself in Rory's shoes. It may be a weird fetish, but I really enjoyed that fight -- maybe a little too much. I liked the idea that Rory really hadn't done anything wrong, and Luke was being uncompromising, and the whole thing wasn't fair. The unexplainable dissent between the two made Rory's emotions much, much more powerful than just a common fight. I found myself cringing when Luke suggested that he and Dave pretend that Rory wasn't there. It must be a fetish, because I think I actually enjoy reading about and feeling like protagonists who face unwarranted friction from possible love interests (what?! Luke?! I know!!). Weird, I know, but a defenseless, crushed Rory seemed really attractive to me -- and the fact that Luke felt bad about the whole thing was, in every sense of the saying, the icing on the cake.

 

Okay, now what was I supposed to talk about? haha, right, Sex. I can personally say that I have never and will never skim over a sex scene. I'm sort of suprised by the number of people who admitted to skimming. I really, really enjoy them (but not THAT much, if you know what I mean. That doesn't mean I couldn't ... No sir, that does NOT mean I couldn't), and I always assumed everyone else enjoyed them just as much. Not only do I agree that they are needed, but also that they are beautifully written. I hope I'm not the only one, perhaps because I'm sort of young and amateurish, but something tells me many other people enjoy them just as much.

 

Wow, this was sort of annoyingly long -- Sorry, Dom.

Thank you all so much for your responses. Maybe there are disagreements, but every one of your posts really got me thinking and helped me out. I think I was reminded of the first time I added sex to a story, and why I did it, and now I

I think your stories have just the right amount of sex. It doesn't intrude on the plot, and it doesn't take control of it either. The reason why it probably seems laborious in TLW is because its been done before, and unless something new gets added to the equation, it really becomes the same events occuring over again.

 

In terms of sex, TLW really needs to be considered seperate from TOU and DD because sex has not yet occured in those two. A persons first sexual experience is generally one of the more meaningful events in their lives, and you pulled that off in TLW already to great effect (The sex scene progression, from the first kiss to the car at the movies to the shower etc was done really well). I think the first sex scene in those two stories will probably be easier to write, because it effects the characters and the plot directly, rather than just being filler, which it seems to end up being later in the story.

Guess I'm a little late to the party here, but I wanted to add my response. I think your stories have a perfect balance that indicates the level of intimacy within the relationships. :wub: While of course it is possible to show the developing relationship without describing any sex, the sex scenes are a way of describing the characters' comfort with each other without them having to say anything. I have a feeling most 17-year old boys are a little more likely to be expressing themselves physically than sitting down and having talks about their relationships. ;)

 

I also wanted to say that after reading just a few chapters most people should pretty much know what to expect when it comes to the stories. If you're looking for a "quick fix" as other people have mentioned, there are sites for that. If you're looking for a story with no sex at all, there are sites for that, or you could skim over the sex scenes, although I don't know why you would. :*) If you're looking for a well-written story about a developing relationship (including the evolving sexual aspects of that relationship), your stories are ideal. Thanks for sharing them with us! :worship:

Hey Dom, This is a bit late, but I agree with everyone else who says that your stories are just great how they are. They aren't sex centred but they aren't deprived either. The character developments and everything all give great build ups to the sex scenes, and they aren't anti-climaxes either. Don't change your style, we love it. Everyone who doesn't can just read another story! :P
