Episode 3.7 – Romance and Sex in Other Genres (Part II)

Content warning: this episode includes coarse language and discussions about sexual assault in literature.

Continuing the conversation from episode 3.6, we explore sex in non-romance fiction. Sex scenes should not be any different, fundamentally, from any other scene in a book. They can be staged like a fight, conversation, transaction-—any scene that involves character emotion and growth. The scene should have value as well as enticing action.

Do social taboos affect the way we write and read sex? Definitely.
