THE TWELVE STEPS OF INTIMACY by Linda Howard


This is one of the basics in romance writing....copy it out!
The original website where this was printed is no longer in
existence.

Here are what they are...
1. Eye to Body
2. Eye to Eye
3. Verbal Contact
4. Hand to Hand
5. Arm to Shoulder
6. Arm to Waist
7. Mouth to Mouth
8. Hand to Head
9. Hand to Body
10. Mouth to Breast
11. Hand to Genitals
12. Genitals to Genitals

These twelve steps were taken from studying monkeys...

If you take the steps too quickly, it doesn't set up intimacy
well. Say, you meet a man at a party. It's eye to body first.
But what if a man came up behind you, put his hand on your
derriere...step back fellow, you're moving too fast.
