    Description: Do you have a problem writing about sex? If you want to write a sex scene in your story what should you concentrate on? Do you focus on the mechanics of getting undressed and into bed, followed by a physical description of the act itself? Or is it better to think in terms of the way people are feeling as they engage in sex? Or is there another way of writing about sex? This workshop will involve some writing - about sex, of course - but also discussions on the best ways of writing a sex scene.
