I have come upon a place that might warrant a sex scene. I am not even certain if I want a sex scene in this novel. Then again, I am thinking maybe there has to be, needs to be a sex scene.
I am a very visually oriented person. My writing reflects that. I love the sense of sight and the visuals of motion, but writing a sex scene is most often dominated by other senses, touch, smell, sounds, hearing.
So what do you think? Can we have a romantic, sexy sex scene in the light, or do we need to find a more intimate, more discrete manner in the dark or with candles lit…somewhere, somehow?
The personality of the characters in this scene probably wouldn’t mind either way, but as a reader, what do you think?
And, do we really HAVE to HAVE a sex scene?
