Hey guys, I grew up reading mystery/suspense novels and i'm attempting to write my first book within this genre. I have a general question about sex scenes...I'm not sure how far to take it or to leave it out all together. The main characters in the story are young adults in their 20s and about half way in the book they are in their hot and heavy stage where they are getting it on quite often. I write out the scenes in detail rather than glance over them and i'm afraid it doesn't really fit with the type of book i'm writing. As for the sex scenes, they are not as elaborate or have as much description as an erotica novel but they do compare with the scenes within 50 shades of grey. I'm trying to cater this book to both males and females. My wife tells me that she feels its weird that a man is writing descriptive sex scenes...she says its ok for women but not men. I know that's her opinion but somehow I feel she has a point. There are several unique things i'm trying to incorporate within this book and the sex is part of that uniqueness. But is it going to alienate my readers? Any advice for me about this?
