Can You Write Porno or Adult Material?

  I go by the pen name John M. Gardener, I always wondered why people had pen names when I was a kid, do they have pencil names also I thought? Anyways, I’m a writer. I had always imagined writers wrote about interesting things, like poems and romance novels or sit around in a Dick Van Dike like think tank room. I always wanted to have a job like Dick Van Dyke, but unlike the show I have to write about things I could care less about. The paradox to this is that as I sit writing about everything between what new TV model is the best one to buy, and why this frying pan is the best, or which brand of dog food is good and why a person should buy it.  I always wonder how many people will ever actually read these product reviews.

    I would love to write about something I want to write about, sometimes. Well sometimes isn’t all the time for me and I have to really struggle to find time to write for myself. Like everyone else, writers have to eat too, so I have to write for others for now to make a living. I rarely turn away writing jobs, if I do its mostly for the reason that I lack technical knowledge regarding a particular subject.

    All industries need writers, majority of the writing jobs are for marketing. But every now and then I have a sexually related article pass over my desk. Now, I give a fair glance at all the writing jobs that pass my way, but I want to let the reader understand that I have written some pretty interesting topics in the past, so I thought, I’m not new to sexually related topics.  I once wrote an article about pre-mature ejaculation, what causes it and its remedies. But I was not prepared when I received an article request for male and female sex toys.
    Now I have turned down jobs before because I lacked the ”technical” know how but in this case I do know a little about these kinds of ... for lack of a better word “sex toys”. But I just couldn’t bring myself to commit my mind into writing that information down on paper.

    So, I just sat down and gave a hardy laugh over it and let it pass on by. The funny thing is that before I made the decision to pass up the job I had actually begun to write the article in my mind. I imagined how to best describe the functioning replicas of the human sex anatomy. It was then that I burst into laughter because what I imagined myself writing about, I just couldn’t bring myself to write a description of these "sex toys" even  in my mind let alone on paper.

     To write quality, passionate, daringly sensual and believable articles about sex toys, a writer should have some experience in the field of sex toys. So that the article will be entertaining, captivating and keep the reader interested in the product enough that they would want to make a purchase. A well written article should sell a product, so it is important to describe the item and its functions in detail, and how to best use it in a way that the reader will be compelled to buy the it. I believe writing a product description like this would require a person to have some porno experience or be properly familiar with the adult sex industry, and have knowledge of its jargon to be effective in writing a proper product review.
 
    Well that’s when I turned down the job, not just because I lack the technical skills, or knowledge of these sex toys products or lack the familiarity with the adult industry’s jargon.  But the real reason I turned down the writing job was for once I just couldn’t put what I thought down on paper. This is one of the main reasons writers use pen names so their mothers will never find out what their grown up kids are writing about.  So there it is, I hit my limit. I can’t write Porno or Adult Material.
