Thread: Pulling Punches vs. Raising the Bar

    I don't feel like we have sufficient data to render a worthwhile opinion.
    All we know is that you are writing the first of multiple love scenes.
    We do not how much of the story arc this occupies, or if it is central to the story.
    Does the story already have other highlights, and does is one good sex scene enough?

    When I write a scene, I have specific goals in mind: to introduce a new plot or character, or develop a character, or reveal hidden background, or set the plate for the next scene... So the question really is: What are you trying to accomplish with this first love scene? Write that.

    I agree, the OP leaves things a bit uncertain.

    Just to clarify: this wasn't an actual conversation or writing dilemma. More of a hypothetical debate, for discussion's sake.

    (A let's throw some wood in the oven and see what burns! kind of a thread.)

    Me personally, I'm old fashioned, so my first love scene would be building the love interest, sex later.
    But if it was a lust story then I'd let 'em hit it in the first scene.
    Good girls don't put out on the first date.
    So for me I'd make LOVE a 2-parter.
