To Watch or Be Watched? Comment and Win

If you could choose between being able to watch or to be watched yourself, which would you pick? Doing what? I hear you ask because, of course, it depends on the activity being watched.

Many of us undertake secret actions that others might consider weird so we prefer to keep it hidden, but no need to worry as I’m not talking about bizarre behaviours. I’m actually talking about sex—well, I’m an erotica writer, after all.

Despite the media constantly bombarding us with sexual images, and people apparently suffering addictions to sex and porn, I’m sure there are still many reserved people out there. How would you feel about being observed in the most intimate of acts? I’m sure many would baulk at the idea.

I got thinking about the subject after writing Two With A View, which is out with Total-E-Bound today. It’s a short story about a couple who are only too happy to be a spectator when the other makes the beast with two backs…

A further fifteen minutes passed before Natalie counted out the rest of the guests—leaving only one.

Knowing Cyrus wouldn’t let her down, she directed the telescope to the soft light of his bedroom and waited. Within minutes of the other guests’ departure, the door was flung open before the couple stumbled into the room, entwined in each other’s arms, in the midst of a passionate kiss. Natalie watched Cyrus guide her to the window, their lips remaining locked.

His deliberate placement didn’t go unnoticed. Natalie smiled as she watched him commence undressing his conquest. Natalie’s inability to lip-read put her at a disadvantage as the kiss ended to allow them to eagerly undress each other.

The purple dress gave way to black lace underwear, too decorative to be appropriate for wearing beneath clothing and designed entirely for sex appeal. The allure of the plunge bra seemed to go unnoticed by Cyrus, who unfastened it and let it drop.

Happy for him to admire her breasts, the woman took her time in taking off his shirt, smiling seductively as she flung it aside. 

Turning her to face the window, Cyrus moved behind her to kiss her neck as he caressed her naked breasts, his hands barely able to manage them. The sight of her bulbous flesh, nipples red and ripe, made Natalie’s body react as if his hands touched her own body.

I suspect that even some writers who pen sex scenes on a regular basis would be rendered speechless at the thought of being watched having sex. Others would probably relish the opportunity. Like sexuality, I think a person’s level of exhibitionism falls on a sliding scale and would mean some people taking a little convincing.

I’m sure it would be infinitely easier to get people to watch a live sex show as even those turned on by the written or spoken word can also find pleasure in erotic images. I bet even those that are so bombarded with sexual images that they should be bored by it would still want a look—natural human curiosity.
