I’ve used cock four times in one paragraph.
Ahahaha! Cock is the worst, isn’t it beautifulfic? Thesaurus.com doesn’t have a large list of synonyms. I always find myself dancing around that word in my sex scenes. It’s not like you can have an…
"Prick" always takes me aback. I think because the first thing I think of is pin-prick, which means something very tiny, and then when I try to apply that to penises it’s just laughable. Yeah, I use penis, erection, shaft, column (never member, that’s so old-fashioned romances, omg, when they also called them swords and women sheaths. Although, hell, maybe it’s time to bring that last ones back, ha!), cock, dick (if I"m not trying to sound British), sex, arousal, length. Yeah. Phallus, sometimes, if I can keep it from being too pretentious. I’d use hardon if I could figure out a way to spell it (hardon doesn’t read right, hard on doesn’t convey the right meaning, I always misinterpret it. Hard-on? Nope.)
I actually like prick more than cock, because cock is so overused (not in a bad way, I mean like in the way that “said” is overused, to the point that it becomes more punctuation than a word). But to each their own :P as long as the cocks are happy I’m happy!
I can confirm the cocks are happy… For now.
john and sherlock would be totally romantic with each other but not in the squishy cuddly way more like in the "i will die for you and i will kill for you and I will ravish you when you are a sweaty, adrenaline-high mess with blood all over your face" way
and the “i will bitch about everything you do while also obviously loving everything you do even when you are legitimately annoying the fuck out of me” kind of way
