All the Way: The 5 Steps to a New Adult Sex Scene

Misunderstandings by Tiffany KingToday we're joined by author Tiffany King, whose Misunderstandings is out this week. It's a New Adult book, and it has the hero and heroine—who have a shared past—running into one another unexpectedly in an elevator. One things lead to another (as they go up and down?), and the two have to figure out if they can get over their previous misunderstandings. Tiffany is here to walk us through the five steps of a New Adult Sex scene. Thanks, Tiffany!

Writing a new adult sex scene is like cooking a gourmet dish. Okay, maybe the analogy is a bit of a stretch, but stay with me. What I mean is everyone has different tastes. Some people like bold, curl your toes, give it to me baby while listening to “Let's Get It On” by Marvin Gaye flavors. Other people prefer a subtle slow building, Boyz II Men, “I'll Make Love to You” tease the senses flavor profile. As long as it's sinfully delicious and achieves the anticipated level of satisfaction (wink-wink), either way works. I'm more of a slow savor the anticipation of the deed type of girl. I like to appreciate the romance of each step, letting the sensations multiply exponentially until there is nothing left to do but tear each other's clothes off. Oh my! I'm starting to sweat a little, and definitely getting ahead of myself. Allow me to backtrack slightly while you step into my kitchen and I explain my five steps to a hot new adult sex scene.
