Remind me…

…to never write a virgin heroine again. I don’t care how realistic it is that a 19th century, unmarried, sheltered New England young lady would have no sexual experience. Trying to layer in the drama around the big event is a pain in the butt.

And then there’s Adam, who’s never deflowered a woman before and is also a pain in the butt. (Well, not literally, ’cause she’s not that kind of girl.)

“I’m feeling a little pressure here, woman.”
“Haven’t you done this before?”
“Many times, but
you haven’t. What if you don’t like my way of goin’ about this? Hell, I could put you off sex forever.”

Seriously, first and last virgin.

    Your dialogue sounds better than some I’ve read. At least it’s realistic. No damned flowery phrases to clutter up the scene. Hey, if it doesn’t work out, he can always shoot her!:lmao:

    Adam doesn’t do so well with the damned flowery phrases. :rofl: It’s kinda funny when he tries, though.

    A poet he’s not. :cowboy:

    He, 19th century English girls weren’t supposed to enjoy it anyway. “Close your eyes and think of England.” :roll:

    But who wants to read that sort of sex scene? :wink:
