There are lots of things that writers do to avoid writing. There's chocolate and pictures of man chest. Also funny pet pictures. You can see all of those in abundance on my facebook page. But I recently got my shipment of new toys for my appearances. (Find out if I'm going to be in your area on my events page or on Jade's Jewels And yes, I'll have them at the Adventures in Fiction in Dallas, Feb 15.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Hoyt named my new promo items Squidges and proceeded to put them into poses for the Squidge Kama Sutra. Here's a few of the pictures. First we have Hello Squidge and the Squidge doing its job. Then we have Downward Facing Squidge and Two Squidges Make a Box.

That led to lots of hilarity, but also started a group of us talking about types of love scenes. I contend that there are three basic romance love scenes. (We're talking the normal male/female two person love scene)

1. Hero in power - usually on top, heroine's legs possibly up by her ears.

Variant A - from behind. That's always hero dominant, IMO, because she's usually face planting somewhere.

2. Heroine in power - She's on top, he's restrained either physically or by his own laziness, er, choice to let her go explore.

3. Squidges make a Box (aka 69) - the most famous of which (in my opinion) is one where the hero is standing and holding the heroine up by her ankles during the event. Yes, he's a vampire. And yes, he's trusting that she doesn't bite down during orgasm.

That's it. Three basic love scenes. There's infinite variety within those basics, but really...what else is there?

Well, the other authors brought up a host of other possibilities. There's the mutual shared power love scene where it's more of a give and take within the scene. I had to admit that those exist-after all I've written a bunch of them-but that's just a couple who can't decide between my one and two. Also mentioned were the funny/giggly love scene (those are fun!), the toy scene (because you can't beat sex with a cyborg), and of course the paranormal scenes. Shapeshifter hotness allows for infinite variety and potential fur in the wrong places!

So help us out! Can you think of other types of love scenes? Get innovative! A lucky commenter will win a Squidge plus an advance copy of WHAT THE GROOM WANTS.

Re: Jade Lee | Squidges and Love Scenes

Hmmmm.. can't really think of anything else.... but fun to think...
(May Pau 2:53pm February 6, 2014)

68 - she owes him 1!!! lol!
(Amy Watson 3:02pm February 6, 2014)

Ummm...kinda drawing a blank here. Maybe side by side? Against the
wall? I don't know!!! ;)
(Sheryl Nyary 3:19pm February 6, 2014)

The teenage sex scenes of sex in a car or on it.
(Susan Clickner 3:28pm February 6, 2014)

How bout up against the wall, fall in floor exhausted. I've read a few in carriage or riding a horse sex. That raw, hard, last forever kind.
(Debbie McCreary 3:33pm February 6, 2014)

Looking forward to reading one of your books.
(Sharon Rabner 6:48pm February 6, 2014)

Maybe... sitting in his lap facing away from him.
(Samatha Hodges 6:50pm February 6, 2014)

I love your posts! Wonderful man chests!!!! But your books are good too! LOL
(Linda Bolton 7:35pm February 6, 2014)

The quickie in the linen closet at a party or the wall or
against the door is always a good one!
(Lisa Ringsby 10:41pm February 6, 2014)

In a public place, like a private theater box.
(Elizabeth Robertson 10:52pm February 6, 2014)

Great, fun post! Side-by-side does seem to be a variation, since neither party would be dominant.
(Janie McGaugh 11:16pm February 6, 2014)

Very funny everyone! (I especially love 68!) Keep 'em coming!
(Jade Lee 11:24pm February 6, 2014)

LOLOL I got nothing new. But loved your post. Bahhaha
(Lisa Hutson 12:37pm February 7, 2014)

LOL Laughing too hard to think of any that haven't been mentioned. . . .
Maybe if I sleep on it..... ;-)
(Glenda Martillotti 1:18am February 7, 2014)

Constantly changing- -Rolling across the bed or floor where the shaft power shifts- control of the relationship goes back and forth

A spanking pose -dominatrix power hero or heroine could be the powerful controller
(Laurie Gommermann 6:20am February 7, 2014)

The girl bound with the man pleasuring her. ;-)
(Karin Anderson 6:58am February 7, 2014)

In the garden folly or summer house during a house party.
(Ann Gonzalez 6:59am February 7, 2014)

When she goes down on her knees to pleasure him because she has heard servants talk or a friend tell her. Or, she gasp and wants to refuse to let him pleasure her with his mouth.
(Ann Gonzalez 7:01am February 7, 2014)

I liked in "What a Bride Wore" when she "turned around, arching slowly bent over. She bared her bottom to him-". That is not a usual position in a Historical Romance unless he turns her around and bends her over.
(Ann Gonzalez 7:09am February 7, 2014)

Keep up the sexy men pictures on Facebook. I share with my sister although she follows your page too. My 16 year tells us how gross we!
(Ann Gonzalez 7:33am February 7, 2014)

I love historical romances and especially yours Jade. I have several of your books and have re-read them often!!
(Bonnie Capuano 7:45am February 7, 2014)

What a gorgeous cover! I love the scenes you describe. LOL!
Now that I'm older, the scenes I think of, I poo poo because
they're not safe or I don't want to encourage someone to do
something they could get in trouble for if caught. I'm not
much fun in that dept except for in my imagination.
(Linda Townsend 8:24am February 7, 2014)

Can't really add much but reading the comments on this post was fun!
(Pam Howell 9:05am February 7, 2014)

Lol!!! Well, I would say that my fave is the one that people
whisper in each others' ears and their friend gasps and says
"Is that even possible??!!" Whatever THAT pose is, that's
what I want;)
(Cindi Clubbs 12:35pm February 7, 2014)

The only one I can come up with is long distance. You can use your imagination here by what I mean. :-) Have a very Happy Valentine's Day!! I love the cover, and can't wait to read your book!!
(Peggy Roberson 1:15pm February 7, 2014)

I love your books, Jade! How about in a stopped elevator, up against the elevator walls and floor?
(Cathy Phillips 2:14pm February 7, 2014)

Lol... reading this post and comments made me laugh! Thanks for sharing!
(Colleen Conklin 3:38pm February 7, 2014)

The photos and the comments are hilarious. Thanks for the great laugh.
(Janet Gould 6:30pm February 7, 2014)

Side by side, facing each other, one leg over. Love your little Squidges!
(Sharlene Wegner 8:35pm February 7, 2014)

Let us be a lady and gentleman and do it calmly and lovingly!
Marilyn Collins
(Marilyn Collins 8:59pm February 7, 2014)

Skype sex? In that version the internet provider is in control. LOL
(Marcy Shuler 9:06pm February 7, 2014)

On the formal dining room table!
(Stephanie Christensen 9:40pm February 7, 2014)

i love the siting on top of him facing each other or picking
her up and doing it like that
(Denise Smith 12:06pm February 8, 2014)

I love the pictures. I kind of chuckle at them.
(Kai Wong 2:35am February 8, 2014)

Love all your books so I naturally look forward to reading this one. It's a must!!!
(Bonnie Capuano 8:08am February 8, 2014)

I love historical romances and love the cover. Thanks for the giveaway.
(Kathleen Beale 8:12am February 8, 2014)

You always have the most beautiful covers. Congrats on another
(Vicki Hancock 8:42am February 8, 2014)

Guy sitting, girl with back to him in control. She can set pace! ;)
(Sue Galuska 11:00am February 8, 2014)

The cover scene is excellent! It really makes me want to read it!
(Teresa Stebbins 11:23am February 8, 2014)

I think maybe side by side or, the always awkward, ménage is the only thing you missed. I love the illustrations with the Squidges. They're both adorable and dirty.
(Jamie Fortney 1:50pm February 8, 2014)

Love the cover and your books. Thanks for a chance to win.
(Linda Hall 3:03pm February 8, 2014)

Hmmm, let me see. Side by side and sitting on him seems to have possibilities. Rolling
around with no one in particular being in charge seems different too. With only two
people there's not too many possibilities of someone not being in charge, lol. Thanks
for the giveaway and it's great to have a chance to win your latest book ;-)
(Lenna Hendershott 3:14pm February 8, 2014)

Hi Jade!
Loved everyone's idea but how about him dragging her into the cook's pantry and sitting her onto a shelf while he drives her by kissing her - everywhere?
(Jeanne Miro 3:53pm February 8, 2014)

For ideas on more sex moves, keep an eye those squid gets. They must
have rabbit genes!!
(Chris Coulson 5:35pm February 8, 2014)

(Denise Holcomb 5:38pm February 8, 2014)

Mile high club?
(Denise Austin 6:16pm February 8, 2014)

That was so funny. I read a cowboy story a while ago. I had
to feel for the horse. (No not THAT!!) Just the "gymnastics"
(Mary Preston 9:10pm February 8, 2014)

spooning (her back to his front); a woman on something like a counter or something with the man standing. :-)
(Larena Hubble 11:25pm February 8, 2014)

A personal favorite... against the wall!
(Betty Hamilton 1:04am February 9, 2014)

whats up
(Aaron Polish 7:22am February 9, 2014)

I remember once when my husband was on his way out the door to go to work, we both got abruptly hot and bothered. Up against the closet door did just fine, but it wasn't long enough! And at the same time, I found I worried about the windows in the front door, yes they were up high, but someone might have seen his head bobbing. The time, man has always taken his time, didn't know he could do a quicky! And the wood floor, I was in socks and kept slipping. Thankfully he had a good grip on me. Oddly, you never read these issues in a book. Yet my mind was consumed with them. ;-)
(Marcia Berbeza 10:45am February 9, 2014)

Just a mix of all three.
(Jo Jones 4:37pm February 10, 2014)

On the desk or table.
