How graphic is “too graphic”

kissing in rainSo, as I’ve moved into the romance genre of writing, I find myself at a place where I’m lacking direction and there seems to be two different camps on this: how graphic is “too graphic” for a love scene in a romance novel? I want my books to genre bending type of novels. I want it to be tasteful when I write about it (sex). Statistics show that a vast majority of readers who read “romance” skim over the love/sex scenes when they get to it. I don’t want that to happen. I want the connection between the two to be felt by anyhone who reads it. I don’t want it to be about the “sex” I want it to be about finding each other in another realm…about it being a healing. Anyway, would love your feedback and opinion on this. How graphic is “too graphic”? You can either comment on the post or just message it to me.

  1. Nothing is too graphic as long as done in good taste, which from what I’ve seen so far is exactly that.. go with what your heart tells you and as always it will be amazing
