Haha, so I’ve been saying I’m going to write something like this forever, and then yesterday my housemate found that someone beat me to it.
Required reading, friends! So you don’t screw it up if you’re writing fanfic – and so you can suffer along with me if you’re reading it.
My contribution to the smut talk behind the cut. XD (And also one of my Craig-writing friend’s finest moments.) So strap in for –
Excellent archive and top ups. And I may have an answer for the 1-2-3-DICK question (or at least an influence.)
Being a smut writer back in the early oughts (or as we called it then, lemon or lime), there was a lot of Magical self-lubricating yaoi assholes, but a definite desire to become more accurate and educated as writers got experience. But nobody was posting sex advice on Reddit, so unless you wanted to get Real Friendly with your gay BFF (I definitely did) info from dudes actually into butt stuff was rare.
But you know what wasn’t rare? Sue Johanson. Sue Johanson, telling a nice straight man who wanted to try pegging how to “prepare” himself. Starting with a finger. Adding another finger when he was “less tight”. Working his way up to it.
Somehow, to our gay-sex-knowledge-starved-brains, we all collectively heard “1-2-3-DICK”. And that advice was somehow suddenly everywhere? I definitely saw it on advice websites. It was saucy, I’m sure people stole it..And all the little smut writers who took whatever gay advice we could get.
