A writer of erotic stories to make you laugh, gasp and wet, I aim to make my stories both arousing and entertaining, using as a guideline the phrase;
"Just because you are (writing about sex) doesn't mean you should forget about (writing a good story). This also works in reverse."
My stories generally balance about 50/50 with regards to the (very) explicit scenes and I make a point of making the sex scenes integral to the story rather than just an add-on. Characters and relationships move forwards (or backwards, or sideways) in the scenes as they play out. Most of my writing involves explicit kink.
