I'm just curious to know what others think about this.
I have recently met an erotica writer. Whether or not he's good in my opinion I will not say, but I will say he's a published writer (which doesn't necessarily mean he's good, but I digress...)
One thing he does in his writing is that he refers to the sex organs in different ways throughout his work, just for the sake of using different terminology. So in one paragraph it may be a "love nest", next time its a "love box", then a "pleasure tool", a "pulsing prop", a "treasure cave", a "chocolate stick" (or vanilla stick depending on the race in question), and on and on and on. Thankfully, I have yet to see him use "throbbing manhood". (And let me apologize to those of you who do use it, but I just think that phrase is abominable.)
Now I personally don't like this. I stick to the two to three fairly common terms for the sex organs, and don't get very creative beyond that. I am creative about describing activity, but I don't put my descriptive powers into renaming the hardware over and over and over. I just think its dumb, pointless, and makes the work sound kinda cheesy. And most books and articles I've read about writing erotica recommend that you do NOT re-name stuff just for the sake of variety.
What are your thoughts?
PS -- I posted this in The Starlight Lounge too, so if you answered over there, no need to do double work!
