Since sexuality exists in everything that humans do, will my characters always seem flat unless I'm writing smut?
>>
tension is not smut but tension is everywhere in literature, smut itself is pretty flat

Sexuality is inherently assumed, don't be fooled by the meme-market of 50 Shades.

>>7667115
Yes. Do not forget to properly characterize every penis.

Please delete this.

Because you are a child who has led an insular life.

>>7667156
I'm sorry. What can I do about this?
>>
>>7667115
Oh look, a 17 year old.

Get married and say that sexuality exists in everything you do.
>>
I am 20 and virgin. Should i start worry, or maybe its truth that everyone get some pussy sooner or later?
>>
>>7667210
It's hopeless. Start using you're non dominant hand more often for better variety.

Go to asia. I know it sounds horrible but if you're western looking you will find a gold digger easily, just make sure you wear protection. Also, sex is not that mind shattering thing everyone makes it out to be, particularly the first time. Since you're probably a dude here is a thing for thought (no /pol/ intended). Women over the last 50 years or so were able to define (at large) outside of men. Men completely forgot to do this. Getting pussy is not the name of the game. What is particularly terrible about the pua industry and shaming male sexuality particularly when it is not as overt is, that for some reason the accumulation of genitals of the other part of the population somehow constitutes a virtue.

I was told this by someone in the writing group that I'm in. He said that my characters' interactions weren't "realistic" because they were too platonic in nature.

This, it's overrated. Do hard drugs instead.
>>
>>7667210

Sex is highly overrated. It really fucking is.

Physical intimacy and love is not, but it takes the right person and a lot of work to make those things last for longer than like six months. Almost too much. More than I'm willing to do again after being in one long-term relationship.

I'm a 25 KV. Get on my level pleb.

>>7667115
No, not entirely. There's not much sex in Chekhov's short stories and i still love 'em.
>>
>>7667115
youre projecting. im sure people comitting suicide aren't thinking about sex when they are putting their head through a noose. thats just one example

Just give me three years.

>implying I haven't already used my non-dominant hand, various fabrics (shirt, sock, etc, serving as a sort of cum-rag, but I also made a cum-rag out of a whole blanket, and sat on my knees and tried to fuck it) a shoe, and then used various toiletry items to serve as lube, then used a sharpie, a spatula, a plunger, all while getting into more and more difficult things to masturbate to.
I'm going right down the list.

I'll let you on in a little secret since you're like an antisocial shut-in.

After the age of 23 or so nobody really gives a shit if other people are or aren't having sex. They're too busy being adults with lives of their own to care about and bothering with whether or not they'll have sex.

It`s good to be reminded that you are on 4chan once in a while..

The best situation is when you just happen to keep seeing someone that has strong chemistry with you. It makes it feel more natural when you finally hang them upside down on a sex swing in your basement and violate them.

>sexuality exists in everything that humans do
No. Many people love to crowbar sex into everything they see, but that's their hormones speaking. Keep in mind that not everybody has a strong sex drive, and neither should your characters.

When every other conversation and social situation in a book is filled with flirting, sexual tension or sexual allusions, when every character in a book is a slut, it just makes the reader think of the author as sex obsessed or desperate. Especially, though not exclusively, when the author is a straight guy and every single female character in the book is there for seduction, sex and not much else. That's very telling. Those characters are not just flat, they're insubstantial.

Be subtle. Include sex and desire if that's something that would actually happen, not something that you're thinking about.

I agree.

God I used to think this sort of shit was just something people made up until I walked in on my gf at the time reading some YA crap just like that. She hated it but a friend lent it to her and she's one of those people that if she starts something she has to finish it no matter how shit it is.

I don't remember the name of it but I did look up the author and he was like 47 years old and never been married.

Freud was a memeing hack, sexuality isn't as omnipresent as the old cokefiend would have you believe.

'Sup, Freud. I didn't know they had internet in Hell.
