Translating a recent real-life event into something erection-inspiring, juicy-inducing (because my readers are evenly split between the genders), and within the flow of the story can be tricky and, at times, frustrating, but over the years I’ve found that if I’m aroused while writing a sex scene, it will likely arouse my readers. If I’m not physically “engaged,” I trash what I’ve written, get another espresso, shed a little tear to flavor it, and start over.
