Bedtime Words


As an erotic romance author, I’ve noticed sometimes the dialogue in sex scenes boils down to very simple phrases. Don’t stop. Oh god. (Or in my stories, more likely “Oh gods.”) So good.

You get the idea. But what about boiling it down even more? Here’s a list I came up with of ordinary words which take on whole new layers of meaning when characters use them in bed.

More
Again
Yes
Hurts
Now!
Come
Enough
Stop
No
Always
Never
Maybe
Love
Good

I could go on, but I want to leave the rest to you. Keeping it clean (come on, we all know those words already, and sure, you’ll find them in my books, but let’s get more creative here), what are some single words that speak volumes in the heat of the moment?

Happy Reading,

there

Ah yes, as in "Right there!" Often combined with "Don't stop!" lol. You know, I realized I left out some prime words when I composed the list--for example, "Harder" and "Deeper" (grinning)

Oh gosh, how could I have forgotten "Please" lol. And I guess "Thanks" should go on there too, and probably "Amazing!"
