Back in college, in the one and only poetry class I ever took, my teacher looked us all in the eye and said, “If you’ve never written a poem about sex, you should.” I questioned whether or not it was a good idea to post this poem on here, but for the sake of being real, I decided to go for it. I wrote this in the afternoon while having a casual conversation with my roommate about going to the gynecologist.

You were right to post it. It is well done and written in good taste. Sensuality and sexuality is a powerful emotion and poetry is rooted in the human experience in every range of emotion and being. I believe it must be well done to be effective and you achieve that.
Wow thank you! I appreciate the support and totally agree.
So direct and frank – quite good! Anxious now to follow your professor’s advice and write one myself. —Chagall
Thanks! Have fun in your writing!
great poem, I like it a lot. Sex is a wonderful thing, it is what you make it, just like everything else in life. I am 60 years old and for the first time in my life i have a man I can’t wait to touch and hold and kiss…. it is a wonderful thing!! sex is an inspiring topic, I have written on the subject but don’t dare post here, my kids might read it, way to much information for them! 🙂
Thank you! Sounds like you have a lot to be thankful for!
So much can come out of writing a poem about sex. In the end, it might not even be a sex poem but the energy from writing it as if turns it into something with sparks!
I’m glad you posted this. Very visceral. One of your best for sure.
Love this! Very powerful image and energy. I enjoy the danger and wild imagery in relation to female sexuality.
Hey thanks! I like how you described it, dangerous and wild 🙂
I am loving this! Curious – could you explain the use of the picture in this poem?
I actually took this picture the same night that partially influenced this poem. I also just felt like the vibe of it matched with the emotion of the poem. I can’t really explain why I choose most of my backgrounds. I just see whatever seems to fit with how I’m feeling. Thanks!
