They have an ointment for that.

You know the deal. >.>
Someone just bumped into me! Almost made me spill my tea!
Huh…you watch yourself now.
Say that again, I’ll rip your tongue outta your head. = I miss you too.
Hell’s he doing here? = Damn I really missed you.
Fronted a bunch of coke before I went in. Time to collect. = I missed you even more this time.
You need to call your family. = They missed you, but not as much as I did.
You left? I see you took all your shit. = We’ve only been separated a few hours and I already started to miss you.
You happy now? = I’m never going to risk missing you again.
Translations of Mickey Milkovich quotes
I’m not annoyed at all. ♥
SHITW should be up in a couple of days, I’m hoping. It’s shaping up to be another long one.
You’re asking me like it was the subject of my Human Sexuality doctoral dissertation. >.> It did get me thinking though, and I totally consulted my bff to try and figure it out. If we had to take a swing at guessing:
- Law of Averages: women also write some of the WORST erotica (gay or otherwise). Impossible actions, problematic messages, unsafe and painful practices, you name it, we’ve written it and tried to pass it off as hotness. If you wade through the trash heap of (fan)fiction long enough, you’ll find the gems.
- We form the majority of the erotica-writing fanfiction world: I’m certain there are guys in the fandom laying it down, but they do seem few and far between. I’m always curious about how many guys are actually involved in this side of fandom but I never know how to go about finding out. I’ve spoken to a few awesome dudes since I’ve entered the Shameless fandom, for example, but the fanfiction offerings seem to be overwhelmingly from women.
- We might be reading a man’s work and automatically assuming it’s by a woman. It’s possible. I know a few who write and write well. You can’t always guess the gender behind the pseudonym.
- My friend and I were discussing that men and women write sex in divergent styles, for differing purposes. (My friend says dudes write hentai >.>). I love GRRM’s writing, but none of his sex scenes would ever get my motor running. The sex scenes I’ve seen written by men are used to convey character information, establish power dynamics, extend the male gaze and play into the male fantasy, which maybe effective for the story and the manner in which it’s being told, but isn’t always sexy
and is frankly straight up gross at times. We just look for different things in our erotica, so it might not be that women are simply better at it, it’s just that we know what other women like and we cater to that.
