Flipping through a post I wrote last year on writing sex, I came across an exchange with another writer friend as we discussed our thoughts on women main characters in erotica, and literature in general, and how they should be written, how they are often written, and how we would like to see them written more often.
Here are my thoughts on the matter:
Stop creating women who only exist within the prism of desire they feel for the object of their lust. I love women so if you’re going to write about them, please make them fully-developed, fully-realized, confident, badass, intelligent, wondrous, sexy beings.
More than a year later, those words still ring true.
