Boobs! Boobs! Boobs! Orgasm. Snore. (This Headline is False Advertising)

Hi Darling Ones,

Not only did I sleep like total garbage last night, I had one of those dreams that you can’t shake off and infects your entire day. Every time my brain is still for more than 12 seconds flashes of the dream come back. I’ve spent most of the day feeling pensive and low-key icky despite bailing on all my productivity plans. I spent most of the day finishing The Songbook of Benny Lament and unsuccessfully trying to nap.

One thing the dream, which featured a hot make-out sesh with a handsome man, did do for me was get me to work on that scene that was bugging me yesterday. It wasn’t a real deal sex scene, but rather a scene about sex.

There are two real deal sex scenes later in the book and I’m 86% convinced they read like this song from Bob’s Burgers.

I make things even harder on myself by having these scenes in a man’s point of view. What do I know about what goes through men’s heads when they’re on their way to having sex? Nothing. I think men are Boobs! Boobs! Boobs! Orgasm. Snore. about sex. They get me going, but I don’t know if the sexiness is actually on the page. Or if the sex sounds like it’s being described a heterosexual woman. I had a guy friend who kindly answered 8,384 intrusive questions about sex and he affirmed what happens in the scenes, but I’m still unsure.

What I’m not unsure of is my Sexiness playlist. It’s got the sexiest songs I can think of in it. All eight of them.*

There are twelve other mood-setting playlists in my R&R Book folder on Spotify, which help me feel the things I need to feel when I have to write the things I need to write. There’s also a fifty-song playlist that includes every song mentioned in The Beast thus far.

Guh. Nobody’s ever gonna want to read this book, are they?

At least it amuses me,
Jodi
 
*It’s probably controversial to include “Supernova” of all Liz Phair’s songs, but it playful sexy and not obvious, kind of like me. I know most people would include “Flower” because of it’s explicitness, but it’s not a sexy song as far as I’m concerned.
