A little shout out that my Red Rocket story and its lead character, Astrid Meander, is compared with two other story recommendations on Tanager Leigh's blog: keysong.blogspot.com/2015/01/i….  Thanks Tanager!  (on dA:  ilovelaysan,  blog: keysong.blogspot.com/)
In my recent poll, I asked: The stereotype is that, sexually, men are more visual while women are more into story and fantasy. What do you think?

At the time, I felt like I knew what the main answer would be, and I was right. 73% of the respondents said: It's an exaggeration. Men are somewhat more visual, but some women like pictures and some men like stories

What was more interesting to me was how many people would deny (17%) or support the stereotype completely (10%).  No one selected the reversed stereotype answer (women are more visual than men).

The 73% answer basically implies that visualization is an important erotic element for both men and women at least part of the time. The 17% flat denial of the stereotype is another pro-visualization answer. Added to the 73%, it takes it up to 90%. Even in that last 10%, I don't know how many respondents were men and guessing what women think so a part of that could be inaccurate. 

So, if visualization is such a powerful factor in eroticism, what does that mean to me as an author of erotic fiction? To me, it means that a good sex scene is not just about relationship circumstances, predicaments, describing how characters feel about each other, etc. I should also make sure that the right elements are there for readers to paint their own mental images. A visual approach to description in general would seem to be the preferred approach. Feelings, predicaments and characters would build from there--and this seems true for both men and women.

Am I being "Captain Obvious?" Maybe, but the idea that visualization is the primary foundation for all erotic works does not seem to be obvious.

Writing erotic fiction to embrace my passions and satisfy my soul.

I love comments/notes/e-mails (it's the only feedback and motivation I get) and invite constructive criticism.

If you find any typos or grammar errors in my work, please note me. I seek total eradication.

I'd love to hear from anyone interested in creating illustrations or visual art related to one of my stories, note me! I don't like to ask because most artists are pretty busy already.

Friend and admirer--why thank you very much!

Darling is a bondage model that frequents a number of quality paid sites (don't ask me how I know anything about that), but a little Googling and you'd find her. I didn't see anything on dA, but it's hard name to search with the dA search mechanism. She seems to be quite a sport about difficult bondage. I think you have a similarity in facial features going by that particular work.
