One of the other things I have to remind myself of with every book and even every love scene is that these two characters (or more if you’re writing ménages) are their own individual selves. They’re coming to this scene with their own personalities, baggage, agenda’s, and expectations.
After awhile, if I’m not carefully, sex scenes can start to feel alike—there’s only so many positions and possible things to do during sex! So I always have to remind myself to think like the characters and bring their histories and personalities into the scene. Their emotional issues are more important in writing the scene than the actual act itself, and that’s how I try to keep my scenes unique and interesting as well as sexy.
I still slip, but by remembering to see the scene through my characters’ filters and not my own, I hope I manage to write unique scenes each time. At least, that’s the goal.
