Thread: penis or dick? [Explicit Language]

  1. #41
    Regarding that c-word, which I agree does top the ranking in obscenity for whatever reason, I recollect a most unfortunate fault in one of the early mainframe computers that we had in our office. It was controlled from a console typewriter, a teletype machine of sorts, and also reported its activity on it. For some reason it developed an attack of Tourette's syndrome and started typing out obscenities. Normally each time it completed processing a file it would print out the size of the file in the form "Block count 123456" but the unusual fault resulted in the second letter "o" being omitted every time. Fortunately at the time all the operations team were male and there was no embarrassment about it but we did have to stop giving tours of the computer room until it gave up doing it. This is a typical example of something that I mention in another thread, the sort of unbelievably contrived coincidence that one wouldn't put in a novel and yet it is absolutely true. Therefore it seems inadvisable to ask a computer about this subject as they have no sense of proportion at all apparently.

    Would this be a good place to confess that I have a certain inappropriately (and utterly unmarketable) fondness for ironic writing featuring "throbbing members" and "quivering femininities" and other terrible euphemisms? I think it's all horrible writing to use terms like that, but the cliches profoundly amuse me when used as a parody.

    It's fun to write such things, just don't accidentally send it out.

    i'm not an erotica writer...well...only once......but what should i do? sex is a part of my stories, even if they aren't technically
    "erotica". should i use the word "dick' or "cock' or "penis" or what? ...
    What word would the PoV Character or Narrator use? Use that word.

    Remember . . .

    While the discussion has been remarkably on point and focused on writing, as someone with my username in this lovely shade I feel I should remind everyone:

    Let's keep this on topic and out of the gutter. There's plenty of places for crudeness, crassness, and even sniping--essentially all the rest of the interwebs. This isn't the rest of the interwebs, so please keep within Forum rules.


    We now return you to your regularly scheduled erudite discussion.

    Further reminder: There is in fact a private forum for more open discussion of this subject and it could do with fresh members, that remark in itself not being in any way a euphemism I hasten to add. If you really want a full answer then go, or rather come (No, that isn't either.) there and you may find one. Please keep our streets clean and take your litter home or place it in the receptacles provided.

    Here in our open forum we may of course resort to higher minded views of the subject. Only this morning during our usual breakfast in bed I tried again to ask my angel that essential question. "What is this thing called love?" Perhaps that really is the last word on it.

    So this was placed in the forums in a drunken rage then? Maybe I should give it the attention it deserves. ?__?

    No actually, I can name some authors who do not mention the parts, but only the actions. Where others use "Manhood" and "center". Each is addressing the same topic and give a general yet definite description. If you are serious about this idea or if others have a similar dilemma, this thread is essential. Some times writers will come across the moment of Mating, whether human or none human, So how best to describe these encounters.

    Try this; describe the actions of a pair of canines breeding. There is, the prancing, the posturing, the testing, the teasing and finely the mating. Then the process repeats two or so times in a day, for seven or so days. At no time does the parts need to be mentioned.

    About four pages, or less, into my first chapter, I describe just the scene fore mentioned. I have had some mixed comments on it, but the ones which concern me are those who state they cannot discuss it for the way it made them feel. So, did I describe the scene so well it drew them into the characters, or did I make it a disgusting venture, or???

    Like this one,

    or

    (Evidently I do not remember how to set links any more.)

    The first was me explaining to my editor how I viewed the dog life cycle, I impressed myself and decided to post it. The second one I wrote because I had a female, age unknown, say it made her uneasy because I brought her into a dogs life and made her feel like she was there, But it was the idea she was a male dog which was upsetting. Either way there is no explicit mention of parts or even sexual actions.

    What I am getting at, is these examples can be used in the human act of mating. Even the words "sex" or "intercourse" are not necessary, when describing the action. The reality aspect of any sensual scene is in the telling and not in the showing. Describe the feelings the build up then the release. Make the reader visualize and feel what it is the characters are going through, without making it porn.

    I recall the first draft of my scene in the story. I presented it to some coworkers. I described everything I saw two mating dogs do. One coworker said I was writing porn, the other said "I hope this guy can change shapes also, otherwise You just had him..." I did some big time editing on that scene.

    Here is the thread I have in the workshops, the last four or five paragraphs describe the scene, of the fore mentioned story.

    This is how I try to write the scenes of mating in any form.
