Disclaimer - we talk about sex and writing sex. Be aware of the following topics: sex, rape, & anatomical names of body parts. If this is not for you, then don't listen.

We decided to tackle this topic because writing sex scenes is something that many of us as authors have to face. But it is often a stigmatized topic and not freely discussed. We go over the follow points - deciding if you need a sex scene, point of view of your scene, the balance between authenticity and mood, how a sex scene can (and should) serve a purpose, medieval humor, and how to approach aspects of sex of which you might not be familiar (e.g. writing from a different gender).
