Five Great Quotations about Sex in Writing

“It is a bawdy planet.” – William Shakespeare

“Sex does not thrive on monotony. Without feelings, inventions, moods, (there are) no surprises in bed. Sex must be mixed with tears, laughter, words, promises, scenes, jealousy, envy, all the species of fear, foreign travel, new faces, ovels, stories, dreams, fantasies, music, dancing, opium, wine.” – Anais Nin

“Anyone who attempts to render sexual experience directly must face the fact that the writhings which comprise is are ludicrous without their subjective content.” – William Blue

“People who label erotica writers as sluts/men-whores remind me of the mob that once condemned smart women as witches. Mankind has not evolved much.” – Anna Bayes

“Giving a reader a sex scene that is only half right is like giving her half a kitten. It is not half as cute as a whole kitten; it is a bloody, godawful mess. A half-good sex scene is not half as hot; it actually moves into the negative numbers, draining any heat from the surrounding material.” – Sandra Newman
