AGONY EDITOR Pillow talk

Expert advice on keeping purple prose and erotic clichés out of bedroom scenes

Dear Agony Editor,

I’m working on a sex scene in my novel, but the process has been a little, er, anticlimactic. When it comes to writing dialogue, building tension, whatever, it’s not a problem. But as soon as my characters’ clothes come off, I tense up. I’m afraid I’ll make what I hope to be erotic a joke. Any suggestions on how to write good sex?
