Link Salad and Balsamic Dressing

It occurs to me that I really don’t write erotica in a vacuum, or at least, I shouldn’t. The mechanics of sex, especially once you get into kink, non-standard body types, multiple people and the increasing complexity of sex toys, do require research, and while there’s always the tried and true do it yourself method,* there are still things that I need to look up.

Good resources let you confirm things that make your erotica story more believable, ** and they can give you ideas when all you’ve got is a deadline coming up.

These are some of the sources that I use on a fairly regular basis.

The Big Book Of Filth: 6500 Sex Slang Words and Phrases, by Jonathon Green
This one properly belongs to Miss Rat, but I borrow it all the time. When I’m writing vaguely period porn, it helps to know how to call a spade a spade or a penis a penis. Of course, for every time I grab it to find a good word for a period story, there are at least three times that I grab it just to giggle at the descriptions of tribadism.

Male Submission Art
I love just about everything that maymay posts, and one of the best things about his pictures is that they are almost all narrative. It’s a good reminder that erotica has a story, and looking at the pictures can help me figure out how to get that across. There was also the time that I ran across a picture of a young man that looks exactly like Verity does in my head. It gave me a Moment.

BME: Body Modification Ezine
Though I’ve not gotten new piercings in quite some time, I still love this site. It has passionate people speaking articulately and clearly about transformative physical experiences, and it’s an invaluable resource if you ever want to know some of the important nitty-gritty parts of edgeplay.

Probably Some Fiction
**Plausibility is actually more important than believability in a story. Believability is not always necessary for a good story.***
***I don’t need to believe in goo girls to find them freaking adorable.****
****Um, I just searched that to try to find a link. First, don’t search it at work, and second, I meant anime women made out of clear or tinted gel, not women who enjoy getting covered in semen.
