I didn't mean the work that goes into crafting whatever it is is more if you're a writer than an artist. I would never suggest something as stupid as that, I know how much work it takes to make art!

I meant, a story requires progression in order to have an impact, whereas in art a single still frame will do the trick. Sex is kinda a process, so the writer has to both begin it and end it, whereas an artist can just show a snapshot from it and be done. I guess what I'm complaining about is the fact that you can draw any number of pictures of sex and it will feel like something new even though the essential act is the same, but for a writer, you are so limited by the fact that there are only so many words in the English language. Every sex scene will probably contain the same basic set of words, and it gets really boring trying to come up with new turns of phrase to describe the same feelings. That's one of the reasons I wasn't cut out to be a mostly-smut writer. Because I can't write too many sex scenes in a row without thinking they all sound the same, and being bored out of my skull. Like, I'm pretty sure that every kiss I've ever written has either "gently," "softly," or "tenderly" in it somewhere. Why would anyone want to read more than one of my stories in a row? But if I could draw, ah! It'd be the **** Olympics, pun intended xD
