Let’s Talk About Sex
I have to confess that in my novel, Chaysing Dreams, there are some sections that have explicit sexual content. The reason I’m even writing this is because I don’t want my readers to be surprised in any way because they didn’t expect it.
Ok, let me start at the beginning. This novel initially was geared for young adults. So really, the sexual encounters were supposed to be very vague and brief. However, as I was writing the story, it was very difficult for me to not write the details. You see, I wanted the audience to go through what Tess (my main character) was going through. So needless to say, I would suggest this book for 18 and over.
It’s just that so many times, I’ve read books where all of a sudden, it’s morning! What? Wait, what happened at night? I remember feeling very disappointed, because the characters were so building up for that big moment and then, as a reader, I got nothing!
What I’m trying to say is that sex between two people can be very beautiful. I don’t think it should be frowned upon. But I do understand people have their own opinions/views on the topic.
Well, in any case, I’m not here to lecture anybody on their views. I just felt that it was important that I write this blog. Chaysing Dreams does have some beautiful sex scenes in some chapters. Hope you guys enjoy reading them!
Anybody have any thoughts on this? We could probably have a great discussion!
