In chapter 15 of “That Look”, I wrote a scene that prompted a variety or reactions. Olli said when forcing Christian to engage in some adult fun on their balcony, “I’m determined to teach you to enjoy it.”
Nitty said that Olli was pushy. Kat worried Christian’s fears might be validated by a lightning-strike. Gelybi loved Olli’s determination. Flippity hated that line being spoken by Olli.
Flippity also raised an interesting question: “if it had been a scene between a man and a woman…it would have left a slightly bad taste in my mouth.” She raises a very good point when it comes to our perception of gender-roles.
Therefore, I issue a challenge. Write a M/F sex scene in which one of the partners is persistent to try something new, something that the other partner is uncomfortable to try. NO RAPE. They don’t have to be married or happily dating, but it does have to be a consensual M/F pairing. Make it an exploration of gender roles and our perceptions.
Challenge us to think. Challenge our perceptions.
