She could feel the coarse hairs of his five-o'clock shadow pricking her skin through the decadent silk of her negligee, as he slid his way down from her erect nipple to her throbbing sex.

The above sentence is part of my "erotic writing" homework assignment from Suite101.com, an online magazine where "freelance writers speak their minds" on just about every topic — from the best Tom Waits albums to how to write erotic fiction.

I set out to learn more about writing erotica when a particularly randy friend and I decided not to buy each other gifts this holiday season and exchange homemade dirty stories instead — should make for an exciting sleigh ride, if you know what I mean.

Anyone can take the erotic writing seminar on Suite101.com, and the best part is — it's free! The seminar takes you through four lessons that include exercises on choosing erotic words, developing characters and actually getting your work published. When appropriate, the lessons break down into straight, gay and lesbian exercises, making the seminar accessible to all budding authors.

If you're looking for a unique and deeply personal holiday gift this year, put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard and get writing. It just might put a little more happy into your holidays. . .
