When one of my books comes out, I traditionally do a sex tally. Here are how the numbers fall for Once Upon A Kiss:
Number of sex scenes – NINE. Wow. I think that’s a record for me.
Percentage of sex in the book – 8%
Longest sex scene – 1,418 words
Shortest sex scene – 175 words
I’m wondering what the shortest sex scene you could write would be… Maybe, if you really used your imagination it could be one word.

Sex scenes: 4
Shortest sex scene: 269 words
Longest sex scene: 1283 words
Sex percentage: 15%
Hmm. Only 15%.
Well, it’s quality, not quantity, right?
