Flash fiction seems to be a natural fit for presenting sex. A writer who can create well-written erotic flash fiction will always find publication.
Hello, my brother and sister bloggers, readers and writers from all over the world! It’s around 8:00 a.m. here in Pittsburgh and it’s going to be another glorious summer day, sunny with a high around 85. The Old Soldier is thinking about taking a hike through Schenley Park down by the University of Pittsburgh. But I digress.
When a flash fiction writer writes about sex, he or she should keep in mind that no matter how explicit the sex is, it’s the characters who will make or break the story. Readers are interested in the characters.
Of course, I’m speaking of readers who appreciate good writing. And there are plenty of them out there.
Because the flash fiction story is so short, the cycle of foreplay, arousal and orgasm fits perfectly into the natural cycle of the flash fiction story: setup, buildup and resolution.
So, your characters can fuck like rabbits, just make sure they’re interesting. And your readers will be satisfied, too.
