Taboo? Whatever. It's interesting and fun to see how different authors handle cum, ejaculate, sperm.
For the most part it's spoken of in a positive light—"the glistening bead of moisture seeping from the head of his cock".
The heroine always seems overly eager to have a lick, a taste, a feel. Well, I don't know about you, but I'd rather not get covered in the stuff.
And where did they come up with all these different tastes? Woodsy, man-juice, salty, earthy, sweet and sour, etc. I think it tastes gaggingly gross, but I wouldn't bore my readers with my personal thoughts. I'll give them what they want and make it sound irresistible.
Now, shot across a room—not so believable. Sprayed over her tits—kinda sexy. In the face—overkill.
As an author, how do handle the white stuff? Do you have a special name for it? Do you ignore it, write about it?
As a reader, does reading about ejaculate turn you on or off?
