Sex Words for Writers

Wanting a word for a willy that doesn’t sound silly? A period appropriate term for a climax? Struggling to come up with yet another synonym for thrust? Wondering what your Victorian rake would call his lady love’s feminine features or how she would have described his dangling masculine participles? This may be the post for you.

Whether you pen prize-winning literary fiction or Wattpad werewolf porn, one of the hardest (pun prodigiously intended) parts of writing sex is not being repetitive when describing what is by its nature a rather repetitive act. Vocabulary-cum-terminology can go a long (and deep) way in this regard, and varied and interesting prose can elevate your erotica above the pedestrian spendings scribblings of workaday smut-peddlers.

I present here for your edification and possibly titillation an entirely personal (and therefore arbitrary, disorganised, idiosyncratic, non-representative and emphatically non-exhaustive) list of synonyms for various erotic acts, assets and attributes, which I’ve culled from various sources on the web (and occasionally my own imagination) and decided to post here on the off-chance some other writer, whether a purveyor of depravity or of profound truths about the human condition, sees it and finds it useful. Naturally, it is therefore a work in progress, or ‘living list’, which I will update intermittently (if at all).

Warning: naughty pictures as well as words lurk below. Proceed at your peril.
