Morning sex

It is almost completely impossible for me to write about people having morning sex. I mean, you know, just-after-they-woke-up sex.

Because the first thing I have to do when I wake up is pee, and who wants to have sex when they really, really need to pee.

*eyes all you kinky pee people*

Not me, that's for sure.

So I am trying to ignore this MASSIVE reality squick and write just-after-they-woke-up sex. And it keeps niggling at me. Stupid brain. *thumps brain*

OW!

Write responsibly, hmmmm?

I haven't seen the debate and I probably won't.

I rate my fiction as a courtesy to readers, not because I'm trying to tell anybody what to read. As I explicitly state on my info page, I don't care what age you are if you read my fiction. What I do care about is what a minor child's parents want them to do. I request that minor readers respect their parents' wishes.

When I was 10 or 12 I got my first library card. The public library in North Carolina (the Bible belt, *gasp*) did not restrict what I could check out or read. The librarian did not review my selections and tell me if they were age appropriate or not. I checked out Lady Chatterly when I was about 12. It was way boring and I took it back the next week without finishing it.

When I was about 14, my crazed father and I were browsing the library's sci fi paperbacks. I still don't know exactly what he was thinking, but he handed me a novel with one of those lurid covers with the almost nekkid people on it and a very suggestive blurb on the back and said, "This looks good." I read it, though completely mortified by even holding the artwork on the cover in my bare hands, because my Dad suggested it.

I believe in society protecting children from visual materials of sexual and violent nature. But reading is about learning. And reading recreationally is about pursuing knowledge and entertaining yourself with your own brain, rather than with the zombie-making television or some stupid time-wasting video game. I believe that if a literate person wants to read, they should be allowed to read. I also think that in most cases where my writing is not "age-appropriate" almost every child who stumbled across the hot man-on-man action would just run away in horror anyway! I mean, what 14-year-old do you know that would hang around to read a story about some guy getting his asshole licked by another guy?

But that's not really the argument I want to make. The argument I want to make is that I believe in the free availability of the written word and the sharing of ideas. And I also believe in good parenting. My son is 9 and he is not allowed to be on the computer without direct parental supervision. I monitor my child's consumption of media, and I take full responsibility for controlling what he reads. I don't need society's help to do that.

What I do need society's help with is the crap television commercials with high alcohol and inappropriate sexual content that show during football games on Saturday afternoon so that we had to ride the mute and last channel buttons like fiends if he was in the room. Or the lurid horror movie commercials that run durning a show like SG-1. The show is great for a nine year old, but the commercials for Hostel were enough to make me a little ill.

Anyway, that's my opinion. I understand there's some sort of blame being placed on soccer moms for this write responsibily thing. Well, maybe tae kwon do moms are different. Our babies have black belts when they're ten - maybe our world view is different. :D Or maybe people need to open their eyes and note that huge quantities of this erotic literature are written by middle-aged, white, straight women. I wonder what percentage of us are "soccer" moms of one ilk or the other?

I keep seeing other people doing that "personal canon" meme, and I wasn't planning to do it, because I didn't think I had that much to say about it, but a few ideas have percolated up

The overwhelming consensus is that the word "cum" as a noun is marginally acceptable, and its use as a verb is stupid and annoying.

*sigh*

There's a poll over in my RL journal (too cheap to pay for two journals...) Sorry, friends locked. But I'd like input from you, the porn reading public.

I was a pervert from a young age.

Putting this here because it does not fit well in RL journal )and that's what made me the pervert I am today!

You?

In Adjustments news, [livejournal.com profile] green_grrl rec'd me today, despite the fact that I'm still WIP. *hugs [livejournal.com profile] green_grrl very tight*

I am inspired to have the next chapter up by the weekend. You will be excited to know that I have 16 pages and have advanced the plot all the way through dinner and Daniel getting up the nerve to suggest sex.

Whoo hoo! All that's left to write is the pure smut! Smooth sailing now! And I have tossed the non-smut part to [livejournal.com profile] green_grrl for a beta, as I feel that I have glossed over a bunch of important stuff just to get it out of the way.

I hate that I can write 16 pages of this drivel and still feel that I have not touched all the bases.

*glares at brain*

And now, off to bed.

But for your amusement, I will cross post something from my RL journal.

The thing from my RL journal about youth and erotic literature )

After which point the conversation deteriorated to the subject of threesomes had and wished for, and the corruption of virgins.

Suupposed to be cleaning Small Boy's room in preparation for his arrival home this afternoon.

But am very annoyed.

I have never been kissed breathless. Cause dude. Any kiss that covers my nose isn't gonna last very long, you know? NOT a turn on. So why is it that characters have to actually quit kissing to breathe? I mean, you might figuratively "come up for air." But not literally. *peers at writers* Have I missed something in my romantic life? Or are you all just crazed?

PS: LOVING my Tealc icon!
