How far can we go in sex scenes?

I know we can’t write porn, but how descriptive can we be when writing a sex scene?

You can be as absolutely descriptive as you want to. The point of ‘no porn’ is to have a story with it and not just a book consisting of nothing but sex scenes. I’ve written and read books with a) a good story and b) also very descriptive sex scenes involving the characters going ‘all the way’ in great detail. You’ve just got to make sure its in an actual story and not just for the sake of sex.

Oh, thank you so much! I was so worried. Yes, my book is about a lot more and there are not a lot of sex scenes considering the length (74 chapters so far).

You can go as far as you want to so long as you stay within the rules. As far as sex goes, as long as there is a storyline present, graphic sex is allowed.

It seems to vary by genre, subgenre, and where the book is available.

Sounds like bragging rights.

Or if you’re on some deep space exploration, lightyears away from habitable planet, etc

I think you are allow to write graphic sex scenes. I’ve read some really graphic books on here.

I plan on doing it at some point in my book Breaking Eden. I’d say just go for it and write it how you want to write it.

As long as it doesn’t contain sex with children, animals, or any other immoral act, the sex scene can be as explicit as you are willing to write. I’ve seen some on here that are little else but sex scenes and they don’t hold back.
