Hated Words And Phrases

Do-Re-Mi Do-Re-Mi
I love erotica but when I come across certain phrases I either laugh or get completely turned off.

For me any usage of the words leaking, weeping, or crying when describing a penis sparks the giggles. It’s so ridiculous to me that I can’t help but laugh. And my biggest turn of is any description of eyes rolling back. For me whenever I read that I think about that part in the Exorcist where the girl is thrashing around and then all of a sudden her eyes roll back and she growls (if you don’t know what I’m talking about here’s a link to the clip Exorcist Clip ). I don’t know about anyone else but I never want to have an orgasm that makes me do that.

What about you guys? Any words or phrases you don’t like in your erotica?

Oh god seriously, I agree with you. "Leaking" just makes me think of nasty things. Also the word "member" is so unsexy to me.

You're so right about "member". It just sounds bad.

Honestly, I've just been letting my eyes glaze over stuff like that, lol.

After reading "I almost wept with joy at the sheer beauty of his member, now heavily dripping with pre-cum." and things like it enough times, I roll my eyes and move on, lol.

I really really really hate the word 'flaccid.' Not just in erotica, though, I hate it anywhere. When it comes up in erotica I'm double-grossed-out.

I hate the word "cum." I do not like it as a noun. I do not like it as a verb. I do not like it here nor there. I do not like it anywhere.

I hate all things Purple. I can handle leaking, dripping, member, etc. I can't stand things like "lady flower", "pleasure pearl", etc. Call it what it is.

Yeah, cheesy word choices like that ruin erotica for me. I have a hard time taking a lot of it seriously.

To each, their own...but it does nothing for me except make my eyes roll.

Reading Take Me There, too---most of the stories haven't done this, but I just finished one with "hys" and "hy" instead of "his" and "he"... granted it's supposed to be a not-gender-typical book, but to me "hy" is pronounced like the first syllable of "highlighter."

I get what they're trying to do by having boundary breaking pronouns. But as words? They just really aren't that good of words. I like poetry in what I'm reading. And... I still say "mankind." Because it's the 21st century, and our language has adapted so that when I write "mankind," you all know I mean "humankind." But "humankind" is bulky and awkward.

And when I'm the chair of a committee of the regional section of my professional society? I'm still Chairman Antipova, and yes I still have a vagina, but "Chairwoman" and "Chairperson" just are terrible words, and I don't like how they sound.

So, I'd rather have people structure sentences to avoid pronouns where the pronouns don't make sense, than read "hy put hys hand on my" whatever.

/pedantic rant. Now I won't have to waste 3 paragraphs of my review on the topic

'Throbbing', 'womb', and 'passage'. Bonus (?) points if they use them all in one paragraph.

Wow, those are pretty harsh words about eyes rolling back. I don't know about others, but I DO roll my eyes back when I have an intense orgasm, and I won't try to hide that by faking my expression.

What about "musky"? I love that word but I'm a guy.

'Penis' 'vagina' 'love mound' 'lady lumps' 'member' 'weeping' 'seeping' 'pleasure pearl' 'lady flower' 'bud' and some others that I can't remember.

I also kind of dislike 'cum' but only used in common conversation. I guess it's okay in sexual writing.

I agree with most of these but my least favorite is vagina. It sounds so clinical and a very turn off for me.

I do sometimes too but for me it's more of a fluttering of my eyes. If it was worded like that I could handle it but I think how it's worded in a lot of erotica makes it seem really forceful. When a story is in that heat of the moment spot word choice is really important. It should sound like total bliss.

That I agree, the author should use better words to emphasize the ecstatic joy.

I also dislike "penis" and "vagina" because they sound too clinical to me. Also, for whatever reason "penis" sounds kinda . . . weak and silly. When it's involved in sexytime I prefer "cock".
For some reason I really don't like "pussy" either. I'm not really sure why, but it doesn't sound sexy to me as a word. On the other hand, I like and use "cunt", which really bothers a lot of people so I guess it tends to be very personal.
That said, if I'm really, really into what I'm reading I can overlook the occasional word that would otherwise rub me the wrong way.

The ones I dislike the most are "boobs," "cunt," "dong," "jewels," and "lily" or any other type of flower. "Leaking" or "oozing" is pretty gross.

Some of the ones described by others, like "pussy," "member," "mound," or "cum/come," don't bother me so long as they're used in moderation. Same for "penis" and "vagina."

What I hate more than anything is dialog that sounds like it came from a low-class porno. Phrases like, "Oh yeah, baby," "Fuck me so hard!" and, "Do you like that?" just sound dumb.

"Cock," "breasts," and "clit" are some of my favorite words to see. Also if a couple (or group) is able to say things that are more meaningful (even something like "Does that feel all right?" as opposed to "Do you like that?"), or if the writer can pull off a decent approximation of aroused half-sentences, that's fine too.

I second the dislike of "low-class porno" dialogue. I could do without purple phrases like "hot love muffin" as well. It's pretty challenging, though, to write good descriptive passages that don't fall into the ditch of being too clinical or too informal.

I love you.

Seriously though, I don't like it either it seems childish to me.I also have problems with man-meat, man-root, beef-flaps and the like.

They just seem vulgar. I always fall out of the mood after reading it.

When I read man-root I always get a mental picture of two old ladies walking down a beach filled with penis poking up out of the sand, "What are we just growing these things now?"

No idea where the image came from.

"Juice" and "load" are really off-putting for some reason.

Any mention of "weeping" and you've lost me.
Also agree on the "low-class porno" dialogue thing

I hate purple prose and flowery descriptions... So honestly, most of the creative euphemisms for genitals drives me up the wall ahhh

One time I read the phrase "weeping cunt" and couldn't help but laugh.
