Ass (NOTE: There is probably no other word in erotic fiction so often employed out of context or with such careless imprecision. ASS may refer either to (1) the buttocks or Gluteus Maximus, or (2) the ANUS (c.f.). The distinction is important insofar as readers need to have a clear picture of what’s going on in a scene (e.g. She took off her panties so I could admire her tight little ass. I assailed her quivering ass. I rubbed my cock up against her sweet, needy ass). Aside from the obvious, that these are examples of dismally unimaginative writing, can the reader say for sure what specific body parts are being referenced? Writers should also take care to use the word in proper historical and cultural context. While it is ubiquitous in contemporary usage (many people seem to be growing up knowing no other word), such was not always the case. The word may sound perfectly apt on the lips of a Combat Zone hooker or even a married couple in the private throes of passion; but probably wouldn’t be quite so believable in the mouth of a Victorian noblewoman. Earlier generations wore their reticence like an extra layer of clothing, priding themselves on propriety and a certain stilted elegance in speech. Our day and age may be a tad more relaxed (or possibly a good deal less imaginative) when it comes to vocabulary, but good writers are always sensitive to issues of context and precision.)

Bosom (NOTE: BOSOM and BREASTS are not exactly the same thing, though the words are so frequently confused nowadays (even by some supposedly reliable authorities) that it seems futile to point out the distinction.

BREASTS (plural) refer specifically to the mammary glands, and are a constituent part of the BOSOM. A woman may be described as “full-bosomed” or “bosomy”, meaning “full-breasted” or “large-breasted” but the general distinction remains; BOSOM is the whole package, BREASTS a distinct feature within that package. And while one may choose to say “bosom” to mean “breasts”, “bosoms” (plural) is NOT a proper synonym for “breasts” though it is fairly common in informal usage or as slang.)

Crescendo (NOTE: CRESCENDO versus CLIMAX. Originally a musical term (It), literally (and simply) meaning “getting louder”, CRESCENDO has been coopted, confused, and abused by so many writers of pretentiously awful erotica, that it’s probably best to avoid the term altogether. The verb “to crescendo” is all too often confused with the noun “climax” as in, They built up to a roaring crescendo. But crescendo is not the final destination, it is a description of the journey, as in, Their passion rose in a long, slow crescendo, culminating in a roaring climax, or Her cries crescendoed as her lover pushed her towards the brink. As always, use unusual or fancy words sparingly and with keen awareness of precise definition, the better not to be thought of as a pompous ass.)

Erotica (NOTE: EROTICA versus PORNOGRAPHY (c.f.). The words have been used interchangeably, their meanings conflated by so many for so long; the difference (or complete lack of any) debated so hotly without resolution or consensus, that it seems pointless, now, to make a case for differentiation. Puritans and prudes will always see smut wherever flesh is referenced, no matter how obliquely, while many of a more open-minded, sex-positive bent see no real value in a distinction. It does seem to matter a great deal to writers and publishers, though, whether due to peevish literary snobbery or mundane marketing concerns. For the purposes of this reference—focused as it is on the needs of serious authors—the words are regarded as possessing two similar but discrete meanings. PORNOGRAPHY deals with objects, focusing almost exclusively on the purely visible (i.e. graphic) physical aspects of the sex act. It eschews story, plot, conflict and character development in favor of vignettes featuring pure action, almost never reflected upon or analyzed in any serious or introspective way. EROTICA deals with subjects—characters—and while it may include a great deal of explicit physical description, it also concerns itself with the feelings and emotions of its actors, usually in a recognizable, coherent literary form.)

Feminine (NOTE: FEMININE and MASCULINE (c.f.). Given that these words come with their own noxious freight-load of obsolete values and discredited patriarchal assumptions concerning gender characteristics, writers should proceed with some caution. Surely no one having seen an episode of Xena, Warrior Princess or Buffy the Vampire Slayer would be so foolish as to consider words like “docile”, “soft” or “weak” as universally appropriate (or even remotely accurate) substitutes for FEMININE. Nor, in this day and age, does MASCULINE exclusively (or even necessarily) convey concepts such as “bravery”, “nobility” or “strength”. However, in the name of thoroughness, a separate subheading has been added to include a list of these antiquated synonyms.)

Girl (NOTE: A mature, sensitive and discerning man (or woman) well knows and appreciates the difference between a GIRL and a WOMAN. Yet, in the most rigidly politically correct situations, referring to a female of any age as a GIRL is considered insulting and chauvinistic. Unfortunately, there seems to be no clear rule about when it is or isn’t acceptable to employ this term for “young female”. Some young females insist on being spoken of only as WOMEN (c.f.), while lots of reasonably liberated women have no problem being referred to—or referring to themselves—as girls. As always, when writing good fiction, let the characters speak honestly and for themselves.)

Glamor (NOTE: GLAMOR versus GLIMMER. Both words may be used to describe magical spells in which persons or things are enchanted in order to be perceived as something other than or different from themselves. (e.g. The ugly witch glamored the knight, who thereafter saw her only as a beautiful maiden.) GLAMOR, in its contemporary sense of artful allure or luxurious attractiveness, is no longer interchangeable with (and only obliquely related to) GLIMMER, which can be employed to describe something shiny or highly reflective.)

Homosexual (NOTE: Some in the LGBT community have begun to regard the clinical term HOMOSEXUAL as offensive when employed as a noun; and no wonder, since homophobes have employed it as a derogatory term for generations. At the same time, many gay and lesbian activists have embraced once-poisoned appellations like “fag” and “queer” as badges of pride. As of now, “gay” is the most common and widely accepted word for a homosexual man or men. Women may occasionally be referred to as gay, but the more widely accepted word is “Lesbian”.)

Hot (NOTE: Possibly the single-most overused word in all erotic writing; and certainly one of the most misused. Employ sparingly, and with acute awareness of the word’s two discrete functions. HOT (1.) meaning beautiful or extremely attractive, is an adjective with dozens of synonyms, and is easily avoided. HOT (2.) describes the state of being aroused (possibly by observing somebody who qualifies as hot?) again, with many readily available substitutes.)  
Hot (1. (adj)): attractive (c.f.); beautiful (c.f.); beddable (e.g. She was definitely beddable); chic; enthralling; eye-filling; fine (e.g. He’s so fine!); fly (sl) (e.g. That girl is fly!); foxy; fuckable (e.g. That chick is totally fuckable); sexy (c.f.); smoking (smokin’) (sl) (e.g. That babe is smokin’!)
Hot (2. (i.e. to be aroused)): amorous; aroused; horny (c.f.); in heat (f); sexed up; turned on
Hymen (NOTE: A number of popular on-line thesaurus sites have compiled long lists of synonyms for HYMEN—as many as 22 words in one instance. Unfortunately, but for a tiny handful of words, these sources are completely wrong.  The hymen is a thin membrane or fleshy covering stretching partially across the vaginal opening of young females—nothing else. It is not located “inside” the vagina, nor should it be confused with the G-SPOT (c.f.) or CLITORIS (c.f.) or LABIA (c.f.) or any other distinct component of female GENITALIA (c.f.). It is not to be confused with the AMNION (embryonic sac). As always, when in doubt about human anatomy, consult a good, well-sourced textbook or encyclopedia.)

Kink (n): fetish; game (euph); perversion (usu. pej) (c.f.); the strange; turn-on; twist
Kinky (NOTE: almost all synonyms for KINKY are atavistically pejorative or derogatory. Never mind that many kinky things, once ignorantly regarded as symptomatic of mental illness or sociopathic tendencies, have now begun to emerge, if not into the mainstream, at least into a greater light of understanding. The word, having thus lost most of its transgressive potency, is synonymous with nothing so much as “a willingness to seem different”. Someone into a KINKY LIFESTYLE (c.f.) is no longer reflexively condemned as a pervert; but, more often, hailed as a NONCONFORMIST (c.f.))

Pre-come (NOTE: While the present work is in no way intended as a textbook on human physiology or anatomy, there are far too many writers who do not seem to understand the nature or natural behavior of PRE-COME, either because they do not themselves own or have easy access to a PENIS (c.f.) for purposes of reference and research. The term refers to those small, clear, colorless droplets of viscous fluid that form on the tip of the penis during the initial stage of arousal, most often slowly oozing out of the urethra, so subtly as at first to be unnoticed. Chemically and functionally not the same thing as SEMEN (c.f., also COME or CUM), its behavior can be quite different. Depending on the individual, pre-come may or may not spurt out or gush forth, and seldom arrives in sufficient quantity to dampen anything more than the GLANS (c.f.), though, over time in some cases, enough may seep out to build up a sticky lubrication of the shaft. Pre-come itself does not make a particularly effective long-lasting lubricant, as it can quickly become sticky or tacky. Writers need to take such physiological niceties into account if they themselves wish to be taken seriously.)

Vanilla (NOTE: Originating as jargon in psychological and sexological studies, meant to differentiate kinky sex (i.e. BDSM (c.f.), fetishism, swinging) from more socially conventional activities, VANILLA has become a popular put-down, akin to labeling someone a PRUDE (c.f.) or a square. Lately, and, it seems, with increasing frequency and vehemence, the word has been bandied about as a term of derision for those engaging in (or writing about) less-edgy behaviors , particularly non-kinky m/f activities. As is so often the case with rampant bandying, the term has been employed carelessly, and, on occasion, cruelly. It is not, in fact, a synonym for HETEROSEXUAL (c.f.) (based on an antiquated assumption that gay sex was uniquely transgressive, somehow more adventurous or “out there” than straight coupling). There are many gay and lesbian married couples engaging in perfectly satisfying vanilla sex every day of the year, and hundreds of millions of straight people who aren’t necessarily into BDSM, LEATHER (c.f.), FETISH (c.f.) or cosplay, nonetheless managing to enjoy exciting, self-fulfilling sex on a regular basis. A sexual practice that may be perceived as boring and conventional by outsiders is often more than adequately exciting to the people engaged in it. (Not everyone can afford to be choosey after all!) As far as usage is concerned, the term applies to those who tend not to show off or flaunt their sexuality; don’t “get their freak on” or engage in kink-related activities for whatever reason—regardless of orientation. Writers and critics should (we hope) employ this term sparingly, with some sensitivity and greater compassion. Bigotry is bigotry, regardless of where it comes from.)
