Why Do Our Characters Have Sex?|
If I read enough sex scenes, it all starts to blur into miscellaneous parts. What makes the difference between "yeah, sure, move it along..." and "oh, now, *that* was good!" is *why* they're having it.
I agree with your comments about how the author should know more about the characters than they necessarily reveal. My friend Jenna, who betas for me, always pushes me to justify why something happens, even in a drabble...I might never use the info, but I do know it, which affects the piece I'm writing.

Good for your friend Jenna - and good for you for letting yourself be pushed like that.
