Now, when I say Erotica, I don't mean that crappy stuff, or that terribly written pr0n, I am talking about writing an actual plot and story.
Okay, so I have been preparing to write a short story set in my verse' that is erotic in nature. It is not a straight-up porno or anything like that, in fact it is less "erotic" in the sense that I do not have hardcore detailed sex scenes or details, but sex will be in it, and fairly detailed, but not too far beyond an R rating, it would actually probably fit right on an R rating.
Is there anything I should know about this? Anything to avoid or look out for? The whole thing is based on some myths and a cult that is in universe of my one book Nightmare
(out of about 9 native 'cults').
There are some super-natural elements and stuff, and it focuses on their Goddess's Prophets raise to power and helping her vanquish her foes. But since this "Goddess" (actually a transcended human who did some wacky quantum mechanical things with conscious to become a "god", which, is theoretically plausible) cannot harm her foes directly, she needs this guy too.
Incidentally, she is the Goddess of sex, romance, companionship, cunning, secrecy, and the life cycle. So there are gonna be a lot of sexy stuff going on, due to that and part of the nature of her foes.
I'm going to focus on characterization and plot a lot, but is there anything I should really worry about? It's not meant to be a porno or anything, just a sexualized story about a sex Goddess.
Also, what is anyone else's experience with writing erotica? Any challenges, hurdles? Easy parts? In general, no actual heavy details, keeping this topic PG-13 as much as is possible.
