Question: I need help on describing a scene in my book?
Okay, so I am writing a story on Wattpad.com and there is a s3x scene but I want my book to remain clean so I don't really want to describe it. What are some ways to lead into a s3x scene so the reader knows what is going to happen without it actually being written? Here's what's happening if it helps:
A sixteen year old girl and an eighteen year old boy are in love. The girls parents are never around so they are watching the sunset at her parent's private beach at their Cape Cod vacation house. Anyways, he starts to tell her something important but ends up covering it with something else. Anyways, they go back to her vaction house and you know... yeah, so i need a way to let the reader know whats going on without directly telling them. Thanks in advance! =)
BTW: Check out my book when it's posted (chapter 1 will probably be up by tonight or tomorrow) if your interested in reading. It's a military romance. :)
Just say "sex." There's nothing wrong with it [once you're married, kids!].
Anyway. I dunno. It really matters how you're writing it, and because YOU'RE writing it, you should figure it out.
But because I'm a nice person, I will try to help you out. I've seen a lot of writers just begin the scene and leave before any of the serious details. Sometimes it's sort of like following the characters down the hallway, but once they get to the door, they slam it in your face. You know what's happening though. It's just the idea.
So I dunno. Do something like that.
EDIT: wait. 16-18 year old- that's totally illegal.
Perhaps you are familiar with sexual tension. The boy and the girl are both aroused and it is pretty obvious to both of them. I suppose maybe they start kissing and groping each other. Describe the stripping if you are comfortable with that. Try and use more refined words that are appropriate.
Horny - Aroused
Feeling up - Groping
Penis - Member
Vagina - Womb, Sheath, Scabbard
**** - Breasts/Chest
Hug - Embrace
Cumming - Orgasm, Climax
Kinky - Unusual
Well, I recently finished The Fault In Our Stars, an awesome book. Spoiler: in the book the main character and her love interest made a little game out of it. The boy had a prosthetic leg. He was telling her about he why was a virgin. He told her to draw a circle, and a smaller circle inside of it, mark the larger circle "virgins" and the smaller circle "17 year old guys with prosthetic legs". That obviously said he was a virgin. Then, after they had sex, the girl left him a note with a large circle also marked "virgins", and a smaller circle slightly outside but still overlapping the larger circle(kinda confusing to explain) marked "17 year old guys with prosthetic legs", and that said that he wasn't a virgin anymore. You could do something similar to this. Kudos to John Green for thinking up something so clever
Hope I helped :)
Most readers will automatically figure that when a guy and a girl go to a bedroom together, they're going to have sex. Susan Collins in fact had to go out of her way to tell her readers that nothing was going on sexually between Katniss and Peeta when they slept in bed together. It's just automatically implied. And if a writer really wants to drive home the point, you can have them waking up the next morning together.
