Now I do love me some Smart Bitches but today’s entry is just inspired and it made me laugh out loud.

My favorite line? “Every time I read “dance as old as time,” it makes me so mad, I want to punch somebody in the crotch. HARD. So please don’t use it. Think of all the crotches you’re saving from my wrath.”

Because she’s right, there are certain words that drive me nuts when used in sex scenes and they yank me right out of the scene, usually to skeeve me out or make me roll my eyes.

Manroot, excessive description of bodily fluids, penises which are purple (eek, call 911) and I’m sure I may have used this one before myself but women who keen when they come. Now, keening, think about it, it’s a sound of deep, gut wrenching grief. You let one of those out during sex and you just might scare your partner.

Anyway, so read Smart Bitches, hell, read them every day, they’re hilarious and smart.

    ‘Manroot’? Reading that wouldn’t just rip me right out of the scene, but would make me laugh my ass off at the same time.

    I also don’t like when a woman’s got so much love juice it puddles beneath her quivering thighs.

    If there needs to be a tarp or all weather gear from the volume of “love juice” (another phrase that needs to go away) I say, no more!

    And yes, Lili, manroot creeps me out. Like he’s a tree and his cock is the root or he’s a root vegetable – not good associations.
