Some smut authors need professional help. Like, seriously.

And Weisel, that image is spot on. XD

Okay, let's see what the worst word for dick I ever heard was...
I can't remember... maybe I should go through my old chat logs, I used to make fun of bad smut with my friends XD

I somehow prefer **** the over dick; mainly because it has a nicer sound and I mentally read aloud when reading anything non-science.
But the worst ... can't really think of anything. Probably deleted it from my memory xD But I don't like member because of the "overused euphemism"-problem ^^" Though I don't dislike it that much either xD

But... but... everything you write is so amazing Q.Q

Aww, thank you! ;_; I should tell this my stupid brain. I'm always thinking: "This sounds weird...I bet this is a mistake... omg... OMG!" X'D I know I'm probably not that bad in...describing things and creating worlds. XD Thanks again.

@Vox
I really liked the sex scene in fateswap beyond... *_* It was pretty nice...and I think it was also quite unique...  I haven't read a scene like that before. ^^

--

Ah, I also prefer c*ck... and not dick.
Hmmmmmm, other words for p*nis... maybe...dong, tube steak, willy, pecker, s*hlong, whanger, wang... Why do I know these words......and are they even correct? X'D

@Ahiku OMG THOSE ARE ALL AWFUL XD
please never use those in a serious fanfiction. please.

Don't make me start a poll to see who prefers c*ck versus dick. Please don't. XD
I've heard some people theorise that the one you prefer is like the whole pop versus soda debate. Like, which one you're exposed to more. C*ck sounds way more vulgar to me, whereas dick is just mildly so.

I'll never use them... they are horrible! X'DDD I'm even uncomfortable with words like "member"... Arousal is better... or if needed lenghts... it's still better than most of the other options. ;_; One day I would like to write a smut scene without using these kinds of words.

Hmm... I don't know what's more vulgar. And no, we don't need a poll. X'D

"tube steak" - I laughed way too hard at this one.

Seriously, does anyone say that?

On a more serious note, I agree with lawlya, it's just horrible to read in your native language. I don't think I could read smut in French without screaming and hiding my laptop under my bed. Maybe the fact that I'm not native English helps me get some distance when reading/writing?

As for ...male parts words... I think I only used like p*nis once in a fic, but usually I try to avoid mentioning them directly because it makes me feel incredibly awkward lol.

@Yuneyn What do monolingual non-English speakers do then? O.o

I like smut in French (sorry Yuneyn). The problem is there isn't a lot of it in my fandoms, so the odds of finding anything good is pretty small. I found this one website with a grand total of 3 French No. 6 fics. One had no smut, one was just kissing, and the third one was a full-blown ****. I was not pleased. =.=

Haha I don't know, I was just reacting at what was said on the first page, that maybe anyone reading smut in their native language will cringe a lot more?

Oh and there's no need to apologize, everyone has different tastes! But yeah, I'm afraid that there aren't many French fics... not only for No.6, but I'm guessing most fandoms. Maybe... when you're able to write in English you'll just switch to it because then you'll touch a wider audience. So probably a lot of people do this. (I did look one up in the No.6 fandom, just to see if it even existed, and it used the French novel names in the summary... "Aster", "le Rat", "Loueur-de-chiens", so I wanted to die and closed the tab)

Sorry for the off topic - I'll stop now!

I actually haven't had a problem with the language when I wasn't reading English fanfictions. I think it's just ... you get to know the English words in a better (aka more sensual or erotic) context than the German ones. I just associate less awkwardness with them than with German ones.

And then there are expressions in English that can't be conveyed in German in the same way but fit the image in my head a lot more and that's just frustrating xD On the other hand, I had the same situation when translating from German to English in a non-smut context but well ...
