This is a wicked helpful forum. As I try to find ways to revamp my story I am in serious need of a thesaurus or just some suggestions regarding vocabulary to use while writing a sex scene. Anyone?

A quick, limited compendium of words for sex (hehe, my first post ever)

Banging: Very rhythmic, pretty hard thrusts. Like pounding, can cause squeaking bedsprings.

Bonin(g): More amusing than the other words/phrases. May inspire giggles in readership.

Fuck: Typically hot, sweaty, and involving grunts. My preferred form of sex.

Having sex: When people walk in on a couple (or more) doing any of the other types of sex, this is how they report it to other people. "I saw John and Jane . . . having sex!"

Humping: Less thrusting, more . . .well, humping.

Make love: Soft, romantic sex. Sweet, usually done by candle light.

Pounding: Similar to screwing, very forceful and usually resulting in squeaks/grunts/other noises from the reciever. Can also cause squeaking bedsprings and banging headboards.

Screwing: Like fucking, but a little rougher, suitable for kitchen floors and public restrooms.

Sucking cum out of your partner's ass. I don't know of it actually occurring with any frequency in real life.

O.O OMFG!!! I hope not :P

A word I've found alot that always makes me giggle (excuse my odd sense of humour here guys) is "throb", usually used to describe male genitalia twitching randomly while in a state of arousal. Having seen this personally I can only say that having my expression hidden from my bed partner by the low height of where my head was at at the time saved me from massaging an easily bruised ego. I mean come on, what wrong with a little humour in bed play? Personally I don't mind being laughed at, but then again I usually manage to do/say something funny anyway, at least they found it funny. o_0;;

I put this link in another post, but it seems to fit in here:

The Erotic Thesaurus

LV

1) this thread is great! I'm always afraid of my sex scenes getting stale.

2) I absolutely adore that link. THANK YOU.

That said, I've tried to live by this quote by Stephen King:

"Any word you have to hunt for in a thesaurus is the wrong word. There are no exceptions to this rule."

So, I'll just read through a lot of erotica, the erotic thesaurus and try to remember as much as I can. ;)

My contributions:

Sex - never underestimate the use of this word. I often think people shy away from its use because that's what they're writing about. However, as a body part in reference to genitalia, it can be very useful without making it sound...corny (i.e. rod, I mean, come ON people!).

The other thing I like to remember is that just because it's the technical term for something (i.e., clitoris or labia), doesn't mean it should be avoided.

Lastly, one of the things I've learned recently in writing erotica is the use of some words that, previously, always felt rather verboten for me. Dick and cunt are two words that jump out at me. Depending on the mood of the writing, those can both be very useful.

So, in summary:

Clitoris

Cunt

Dick

Labia

Sex (to replace either form of genitalia)

(Wow, I swear even now, that still makes me squirm sometimes to use it, at least, outside of the specific situation...)

For Him:

Bits

Broomstick (for those HP fans out there)

Cock

Dick

Manhood

Penis

Phallus

Rod

Staff

Sword

Wand (Again, for HP fans)

For Her:

Bits

Breasts

Button

Cauldron (Once more, with feeling!--for HP fans)

Clit(clitoris)

Cunt

Labia

Lips

Mound (or mounds, depending on which interesting female bit you're referring to)

Nub (lovenub)

Sheave

Vagina

Also a bit of advice, stay away from the "edible" nicknames for body parts (melons, twig and berries, milkjugs, etc). They tend to come out sounding derogatory and distracting.

Slight clairification:

Nub or nubs = Nipples and can either be male or female, I suppose the female clit can be refered as a nub too, but I suggest you indicate location of it, so as not confuse the reader. Bits and pieces, can also be another name for male genitalia, I have never heard it used to refer to female parts.

Calanthee a man of parts, and at your service :D

PS Naughty Naughty Potterites, I knew Harry road the broom for a reason, as for the Cauldren/cup, such objects have alway been pagan symbols for the female aspect in Magick!
