    A bunch of friends and I have agreed to compete with each other to write a short piece of erotic fiction. We have until the end of December to complete our pieces. I thought maybe I could tap the infinite wisdom of RJ for help regarding this.

    Does anyone have any suggestions and/or links to some erotic fiction I can read to begin my research?

    I have absolutely no experience doing this kind of project and I can take all the help I can get. Thanks icon_biggrin.gif

    Poppy Z Brite is a pretty good gay short erotic fiction writer. She writes these macabre stories of male vampires, shape shifters, rock stars and other characters.

    The best one short story collection is Self made man (I think in the US it's titled Are you loathsome tonight?). My favourite one is where a socially awkward guy hires a hooker for the night and gets angry that she really is a he but fucks him anyway.....but with a gun. You can guess the ending.

    Get thee to a library! Erotic fiction emphasizes the "banging" by mixing it into a specific story that is unique as it plays out. Think of your wildiest fantasies and go from there.

    The one time I wrote for a competition, and I thought I did well, was a samurai who was dealing with the Portugese Catholics who had come to barter. And *puft,* fiction was born.

    So? have some fun!

    What have you always wanted to do?

    I Shudder at your Touch and Shudder Again were good examples for me, but they were horror--which is what I write.

    Let us know how it goes,
    Peace,

    Although it would be a documentary, write about the romantic involvement between Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. icon_wink.gif

    Jesus: Hey Mary. Wassup!

    Mary: Hey JC. Thanks for whatever you did to my former boss. I don't like being in those naughty positions, you know...

    Jesus: Oh I know. icon_wink.gif What you say about doing something Friday night, just before the Sabbath?

    Mary: Oh I don't know...

    Jesus: (raises his robe) I gots more of this where it came from... icon_wink.gif

    Mary: What you doing Thursday night???


    yadda yadda yadda... icon_lol.gif

    How about something topical, based around the lifting of DADT? Repressed military guy finally lowers his guard and has lots of fun!

    I have a better one. The supervisor calls in the guard for a physical, and in order to pass the guard has to show he is in tip top shape...

    Wait are we writing romance novels or porn...

    I will be impressed if it's the kind of erotic fiction that makes you think and gives a deeper meaning to life.

    Im also fond of the prison rape scene, where the prison guards pick on the young, cute, innocent looking probably wrongfully accused 20-something year old, and end up fucking the shit out of him daily.

    Drool...

    When I was brainstorming for this, religious characters never crossed my mind. We haven't decided on the rubric for how to decide the winner yet, but if it rides heavily on comedy, this is totally brilliant!! icon_biggrin.gif

    We really haven't finalized the rules and guidelines for this competition yet. Turning people on is definitely an inherent requirement, more importantly, we've decided that the winning composition will likely need to be able to incite a healthy range of emotions i.e suspense, fear, trust, anticipation, etc.

    Also, I totally need to do a lot of reading...so I can get a feel for how this is done. The main problem is I write like an engineer; I've written a lot of technical papers and not enough fiction. This is a great opportunity for me to develop "juicy" fictional writing skills hahaha. I can't fuckin' wait! This will be too fun.

    Yes. It is great fun. I write (not for a living because I don't make anything) and I teach writing. It isn't any 'easy' to do well, but if you have fun, the person reading will have fun. My best advice: stay away from silly things like 'throbbing member' or 'pulsating manhood' it'll get a laugh instead of a hardon! icon_razz.gif

    OK. I seem to be the only porn writer here.You've taken on the most challenging form of writing. "I fucked him and then he fucked me" isn't going to give anyone a hardon. It's not something an amateur can do.

    I completely agree. I've only read a few pieces of erotic fiction so far; none of them were even good. The more I look into it, the more difficult this genre is appearing to be. Perhaps you have some favorite/inspiring authors you can suggest?
