Sigh. I want to write this sweet hooker-fic but it just—to end up where I want it to, it needs to start with a long-ish scene that’s both both sexy and pretty vanilla? And from the client’s POV, and I just—have forgotten how to do sexy vanilla (looking back at my AO3 history, it’s possible I never knew how to sexy vanilla).

We're so used to kinky gymnastics and multiple partners that it's easy to forget that just actual sex and the enjoyment thereof has its own pleasures. I've gotten to the point where I skip most sex scenes and go to the action scenes, or to the emotional discussions.

But I like fics that concentrate on the sensory details. Touch, how skin feels under the fingertips and how lips feel on it; scent (not smell!) and sound are probably the easiest, lavender or sandalwood, husky voice, kind of thing; and then with sight, there's what the character is seeing, or not seeing.

Added to that is what I call the "psychology of why". WHY do all these things move the person? Are they touch-deprived? Whose scent or voice are they missing? Do they like what they see, or are they missing what they don't see? etc

I think the more emotional and sensual the prose is, the sexier vanilla sex is. I think it's a more straightforward need (and/or love) than kink is.
