I've been having some trouble writing a sex scene, so I started talking to avada_k about how romance fics are more trouble than they're worth. That got us discussing not just sex in writing, but also kissing. She mentioned that she likes when writers describe the placement of hands during a kiss, and I had to agree -- I get a much better (and hotter) mental image knowing hand positions than knowing tongue gymnastics.

So. Question for the flist: where do you like your characters' hands to be when they're kissing? And, if you're not a hands fan, how do you like your kisses to be described?

Personally, I'm a fan of the classic hands in the hair, but I also like a hand on the cheek, hands grabbing the face, and, when done right, hands pinning the wrists to the wall/floor.

First of all, I love that Jason Mraz song. I like everyone better when they're listening to him, truefax.

I'm not a fanfic 'expert' like, AT ALL. I enjoy to read them, never written any. That said, and I never really thought about it, I agree about liking when writers describe hand position during kisses. I guess I'm a fan of the hands in the hair, and in the waist, I find that hot, not gonna lie. And yes, hands pinning wrists to the wall.

Oh, well, I meant when reading, so you count :P Waist is nice, but it's too... heterosexual, lol.

Totally agree, btw -- GREAT song.

well, that depends if if it's a sweet kiss or happy kiss or the "i am about to jump you and so now i will prepare you" kiss...

nape (side and back of neck area *skin, not hair*), lower back/waist, on thigh if sitting...

That's true. I usually don't like my kisses sweet, mostly because it takes a lot of work to make them believable in slash. I prefer hungry kisses, but not to the point where they're rough and bruising, which I've seen a lot in H/D fanfiction.

Mm, hand on the thigh is a really good one. I love sitting, leaning in kisses.

I love hands on the waist, or around the waist pinning them to a wall. And cupping the face, but in that way that you feel the thumbs on your cheeks might leave a mark. I love arms around necks, with hands awkwardly flailing, esp in first time fics. In the hair is good too. Or maybe one on the chin, like in my icon :)

Ooh, I forgot about chin. Your icon is gorgeous ♥ I think I'd prefer that in het kisses, though, because it implies a height/size/power difference (one person controlling the other person's movement), and I like everything equal when it comes to slash.

Hmmm... you know, I do like knowing where hands are.

For me, it depends on the kiss. Is it angry? Desperate? Passionate? Soft? Gentle? Tentative? Is there some tongue action or no?

Knowing that tells me where I want the hands.

I like the hands in the hair, but my favourite is a hand on the cheek and fingers in the hair, and not exactly gentle, while another is gripping the back, generally the middle of the grip, with the clothes bunched in the fist.

I also like the two handed cupping of the face. >_<

Oh! And I also like the hands gripping the arms or bisceps or whatever so tightly they leave red marks or bruises. And maybe it ends up against a wall. That's sexy.

Waiste is kind of meh for me. I noticed you mentioned it being too heterosexual and I have to agree with you on that. I just think, they're both guys, I want their to be some agression, some dominance. Yeah, soft chaste kisses are nice, once in a while, but there should always be a hard edge and the hands really help create that.

Ugh. I keep needing to add stuff! -flails-

Nape of the neck with a bite of the finger nails. That's also hot. That one hand that pulls you in and just bam! You're kissing and maybe the other hand on the person's back.

-nods- Yeah. That's what I like my hands. hehe. ;)

Oh, and the kiss.

I like the kisses to be describe as simply as possible. You know, it's all fine and dandy when the kiss is so special and magical. I've experienced one of those time stopping, weak in the knees kisses once before.

But generally, kisses are fairly basic. First you have the style of kissing, you also have to consider the tongue no tongue thing again. But really simplicity.

Chapped lips? Soft lips? I don't care how they taste. They probably taste like mouth or whatever they last ate. I honestly don't care. I hate when mouths are caverns. I don't need a metaphor. I know what's going on. His tongue is in his mouth. Just say it. Tongues don't need to go spludunking for me to think it's a good kiss.

For me, my preference on where hands--or various other appendages--are placed depends on the moment and the type of kiss the author is writing. Since I'm a fan of UST-exploding, desperate kissing and sex, I'm a fan of the against the wall, in the hair. I also like gentle fingertips against the nape of the neck, or an awkward, wtf-do-I-do hand on the shoulder works nicely, too.
Annie

Yeah, it definitely depends on the type of kiss. I love fingertips during kissing -- they convey a degree of gentleness that "gentle" can't. Awkward hand on the shoulder is always fun, especially for first time kissing, which I adore <3

i didn't notice until recently that i love it when a hand is on the hip.
not both hands, just one. though i never though about where the other hand would be.. xD
and now that you mention it, hands in the hair is pretty hot too.

in a picture by draykonis, she drew albus with one hand on scorpius's lower back and the other on scorpius's arm. it was SO great! one of the best pictures ever.
just saying. lol.

I find the sexiest thing is less the physical description, and more that thoughts that accompany it - especially if they're a mixture of 'OMG, so turned on I'm going to die' and 'OMG, I have no idea what I'm doing, does he like it, gosh that tastes odd' :D :D :D

I know what I like, but why on earth is it so difficult to describe?

A hand on the back of the neck seems fitting, because it's kind of controlling and desperate, almost pulling the other as close as possible and then closer still. And then the other hand stroking the arm - or grabbing it with bone-crushing force, whichever the situation calls for. Or the other arm could be on the small of the back.

Something like that works, yeah.

First, happy birthday tomorrow.

Second, the hands ... I like them in the hair, pinning the wrists, grasping the shirt, or one behind the neck, either pulling the other towards them, or holding them there, with the other hand on the small of the back.
