I'm toying with the idea of a 'bad' sex book. Would it be worth reading?
There are lots of ways sex can be bad. Some of them can be quite funny. The first time or a one night stand comes to mind - where you're both fumbling, clumsy, nervous or just not-yet in-tune. Then there's those men who just don't understand that the world doesn't revolve around their penis.
There's also 'bad' sex when regrets rear - before you've left the bed. These aren't funny but can be soul destroying. How do you get through the soul destroying bad sex, to ever have sex again?
I'm pondering a book with a nympho-like heroine, who is compelled to have sex. It's bad, it's funny, it's heart-breaking but she keeps searching for the man who makes sex 'right'. Do you reckon that would work?
I've also been challenged to write a story where the heroine and hero don't like one another at the start. As I write in first person from the heroine's perspective, the challenge is in making the hero redeemable, even when they fight/hate each other/whatever.
So I'm thinking I could combine these ideas. Have a heroine who has really bad sex while searching for 'the one'. She's at odds with her co-worker/neighbour (the hero) and then somehow they tumble into bed and it's amazing. Now she has to work out a way to keep the great sex - even though they don't get along. Hmmm... might need more thinking on this... but not bad for a first thought for me, The Pantser!
