Let's talk about sex, baby. In particular, how to write realistic physical encounters for various genres that add to your plot, character development, and tension while titillating the reader.

Writing your first sex scene can be a lot like losing your virginity: awkward, embarrassing, overdone, undersatisfying, and fairly messy. When I wrote my first one, I was 32 and had to drink half a bottle of wine before I could bring myself to type the word "nipple". This presentation breaks down the down and dirty into 25 humpalicious steps that went viral when premiered on Chuck Wendig's Terrible Minds blog. I'll talk about how to approach the scene, how to make it matter, thing to remember, things to avoid, how and when to edit it, and how to never use the word "moist". Ask me anything in the Q&A, and I'll do my best not to blush while answering.
