For me, writing love scenes always need to have a certain level of romance, sexiness and sensuality, of course, depending on the character I’m writing.
I love it when a scene gives me the “feels”, allows me to almost visualize what’s going on, kind of like a movie in my head. That’s what sexy scenes in novels should be like.
If I want to write “sexy”, I need to get into the mood and music is the only way to go. If it means putting a song on repeat until I’ve hit the climax of the scene I’m drafting so be it. I have many playlists that fit this purpose.
As usual, when it comes to music, I could easily go overboard so I’ll be listing the first 13 sexy/romantic songs that I have written scenes to and I can hyperlink Youtube videos to. And yeah, 13 songs because I couldn’t choose 10!
As usual, all these songs “tell a song” with the lyrics, just as a song should!
And that’s the end of today’s challenge question.
What are some of your most favorite romantic/sexy songs?
