I've always avoided writing explicit sex scenes because I never really know how so I always end up kind of glossing over everything. Do you have any advice or resources for writing this kind of stuff?

I have a dearth of advice for you on the matter, Nonnie, because I completely and totally suck at writing sex scenes. Other mods have any? Followers? Bueller?
