Staying in character

I read an interesting article regarding writing erotica this morning. The article adviced authors to stay in character. If your character is a  virgin then she’s likely to use different words for body parts and sex acts than if your character is a sex worker. The former character is liable to use cute or childish words. The latter slang. Something to keep in mind while writing.

In the WIP I just finished, my main character was an uptight housewife and I wrote the story using the first person point of view. Sex scenes were a challenge. Did I pull it off? I submitted my story to a publishing house.  We’ll have to wait and see.
