    I like “Raiders of the Lost Hymen”. You know, since the hero is ALWAYS a marauding savage who would’ve brought his A-game IF ONLY he had known she was a virgin beforehand—because it’s okay to be a totally inconsiderate Neanderthal in the sack if she’s NOT a virgin. *facepalm*

    I think you should add in dislocated hymen. you’ve got dysplasia, maneuver… why not dislocation?

    What it should be called: amateurish.  If you’re a professional writer, and you’re writing scenes involving large amounts of anatomy, you should know the correct details of the aforementioned anatomy.

    I was giggling so much whilst listening to this. I started explaining the misplaced hymen to my husband and he was all, “I don’t wanna know!”

    Also – I’ve been trying to write a sex scene for the last week. For some reason I thought it was going to be easy…

    Anna Cowan says:

    oh, and I completely agree about “Damn”. I read mainly historical fiction, so my feeling is that it a) sounds vaguely period-appropriate and b) is a lite swear word – so where a swear word’s needed, that one gets picked most often.
