So I’m taking this fabulous class with JK Coi over on Passionate Ink’s workshop forum. I love horror and I’ve started writing erotica so I thought it would be fun and scary to combine the two. After the first few lessons I realized that one of my horror stories could easily be tweaked to be erotic horror. I’m looking forward to making those tweaks and upping the erotic moments.
If you watch a lot of horror you know that horror and sex go hand in hand. At least in Hollywood movies. When I was younger that’s why my friends watched horror. For the nude shots. There was always a nude shot (or more). Sadly, they were almost always of the blonde big boobed bimbo instead of the hunky guys. When I got older I got annoyed with the nudity because I wanted the story, the horror. I wanted to be scared.
Now, taking this workshop I understand better why the sex and the horror go hand in hand. I’m also excited to work on some of my stories to add more horror. I think I might be able to tweak more than that one story to have erotic elements as well. We’ll see. I’m still working on coming up with an idea for the class that will work because my one idea will work better as a movie. I need to start thinking sexier. And scarier.
I found this list of erotic horror books on Goodreads interesting.
Off to search for sexy, scary inspiration.
Sweet, sexy dreams.
