Welcome back to Write Big Sexy Words – August Edition! We are on the back half of Summer 2020 already! How did that happen? Many of us are roasting in our own juices with record heat waves and political unrest. I don’t know about you, but I welcome any and all distractions these days. So without further ado, here are August’s Words for #WriteBigSexyWords, the monthly prompt of nine words, some common, some lesser known, to help you reframe or expand your sexy writing. Use one, use them all, it’s up to you!

It couldn’t be easier: on the first of the month, each month, I will share a blog post containing 9 big sexy words and their definitions, along with examples that use them in an erotic context. Feel free to use the words and phrases as writing or photo prompts or simply as a resource to bolster your vocabulary and add some new words to your already brilliant creative ideas.
