Sexy Snippets

Symbolism Within Unrealistic Erotic Acts

Have you ever read a sex scene that stretches reality past its limitations? I don’t mean in a genre sense like science fiction. I mean the realism of the sexual act itself. For example, many erotic tales have aliens with extremely compatible genitalia that may or may not create viable offspring. But what if… 

Image created by LionFive.

An alien species thrusts its cock deep inside its host and then releases spines to anchor itself while it breeds them. The host can only moan in ecstasy as it pierces their cervix to ensure insemination, implanting and fertilizing eggs within them.

You may ask, “How can one realistically enjoy spines piercing the vaginal canal and a penile head that penetrates the cervix?”

Well, because it’s not really happening. It’s just art that is interpreted by the perspective of the reader. Those unrealistic elements are symbolic. To some, the spines become stability, representing an undeniable binding of two lovers as they create life. To others, this signals a release of control.

No one could enjoy a pierced cervix (Speaking from experience as one who’s given birth and also had an IUD inserted – ouch), but the author sets the tone. If they surround the action with pleasurable language, then a penetrated cervix is a barrier being opened. It’s allowing someone into your womb, your core. It’s intimate and sacred. It’s a surrender.

In this way, pain and pleasure are straddled by the framing of the author:

(Trigger warning for those who don’t like gore, skip the next paragraph).

1) An author can be building a torture scene complete with a dungeon that smells of piss and vomit. Blood is dripping from the scalpel of the villain, who is carving their name into their screaming victim.

2) An author is in the middle of a sex scene with a demon and his summoner. As the demon cums, his brand is burned into the summoner’s side, forever claiming him as property of Hell. But the summoner welcomes the heat just as he accepts the cock of his new master.

Both scenes are about possession, but one is made erotic by context. Suspension of disbelief is inherent in any writing since it’s all just a made up story. And though I default to adding aliens and demons, these unrealistic actions can be found in human-only erotica too.

Size difference is one of the most common tropes in erotica: the impossibly large cock that stretches the lover beyond repair. In reality, a cock too large to fit would be extremely painful (no matter the hole you put it in), but the size is just symbolic in fiction. It’s the satisfaction of being fulfilled. Or it can represent success. There is an appeal in being small but still being able to handle something large. There is power in mounting the impossible.

What is your favorite unrealistic trope and what does it symbolize for you? Let me know in the comments.

Writing Challenge: Do a deep dive into that exaggerated, unrealistic sexual act. Explore what it means to your characters emotionally, psychologically, socially and/or spiritually. Brainstorm other sexual acts that could open up more of the complexities of your characters.

Sexy Snippets for March

Sexy Snippet button

So I woke up this morning, looked at the calendar, and thought “OMG! It’s Sexy Snippet Day!”  That’s what happens when you get a short month like February!

Anyway, today’s your monthly chance to share your hottest bits of prose with the world.

The ERWA blog is not primarily intended for author promotion. However, we’ve decided we should give our author/members an occasional opportunity to expose themselves (so to speak) to the reading public. Hence, we have declared the 19th of every month at the Erotica Readers and Writers Association blog Sexy Snippet Day.

On Sexy Snippet day, any author can post a tiny excerpt (200 words or less) in a comment on the day’s post. Include the title from with the snippet was extracted, your name or pseudonym, and one buy link. No extra promo text, please!

Please post excerpts only from published work (or work that is free for download), not works in progress. The goal, after all, is to titillate your readers and seduce them into buying your books!

Feel free to share this with erotic author friends. It’s an open invitation!

Of course I expect you to follow the rules. One snippet per author, please. If your excerpt is more than 200 words or includes more than one link, I’ll remove your comment and prohibit you from participating in further Sexy Snippet days. I’ll say no more!

After you’ve posted your snippet, feel free to share the post as a whole to Facebook, Twitter, or wherever else you think your readers hang out.

Enjoy!
