While plotting my WIP (I'm never sure if that reminds me of Devo or not) I toyed with the idea of adding more sex to the story to pander to the readers.
In the end, I said fuck it. I write what I write and they can read it or not and like it or not. I'm not a whore. I want the sex in my stories to actually have some relevance and be in context to the story.
I like fan mail and good ratings. Who doesn't? I think it means more if I have artistic integrity than if I design a story for ratings.
I do have my readers in mind. I want the story to be well crafted and interesting. I want them to feel the time reading it was well spent. When sex is involved it should convey emotion. What I don't want is to feel the story has to be subservient to the spurting cock.
That's my evening rant. Good night everyone.
