"Safe Sex" Story
A thread in another forum got me thinking. Most stories on Lit don't bother with all the details of safe sex that frequently occur in Real Life. And that's cool. It's fantasy, after all! If we can hypothesize that a beautiful, large-breasted woman is going to jump our bones for no good reason, we can certainly also assume that STDs and pregnancy aren't really issues for us either.
But what if the stories did dwell on the Safe Sex issue? Would it be possible to include the extra steps and activities needed for Safe Sex, and possibly even the discussions about it that occur between couples, and still have the story be erotic, interesting, and well paced? It might be an interesting challenge for an author up to the task.
