Natalie Linden at The Hairpin had a conversation with her mother that didn’t go in the direction she thought it would, and she has shared it with us all for our amusement.
MOM: “Anyway, I should go. Oh, and I’m going to comment on your internet smut.”
ME: “You mean the sex scene I posted to my blog? Yeah, I heard you didn’t like it. Dad told me. And [my sister]. And [my cousin].”
MOM: “No, honey, I didn’t. You know I’ve read a gazillion romance novels, and yours isn’t working.”
ME: “Mom, I’m not writing a romance novel.”
MOM: “I don’t care, Honey. If it’s going to be a good, exciting novel, you have to play the sex scenes very carefully. You can’t make it too graphic. You can’t say tits.”
ME: “Tits is too graphic?”
MOM: “Yes. It’s a derogatory term invented by a bunch of bald, fat barflies who couldn’t get any women. Or maybe hippies. I read your scene to my friend and she agreed with me. You have to be more careful with the wordage.”
