Every WriteSex - the blog for authors of erotic romance and erotica - will publish a different article on the art of putting the romance in your sex scenes: The WriteSex Roundtable, all summer long,

In the days of "adults only" novels sold in stores catering to men, the emphasis in each story was on the physical event of sex, usually to the exclusion of characterization or even dialog, let alone romance.
Today, especially in the genre of erotic romance, the emphasis is on the growing love, connection and emotional friction between the main characters, often with the sex scenes used as a means to advance those elements of the story.
We asked each author to address the following questions:
- What do you see as the difference between a sex scene and romantic sexual encounter?
- What do you do to write the romance into your sex scenes, and keep it alive and growing throughout both the scenes themselves and the story as a whole?
Look for a post by one of our authors each .
If you are thinking about writing an erotic romance, or are just publishing your first work, or even if you're a multi-published author, you will find our writers' posts informative and thought-provoking.
It will be a fascinating series of perspectives on this crucial aspect of writing erotic romance.
