Wombs clenching

18 Jan

I’m almost finished reading a book by a popular author. No I won’t name the person, but I’m almost to the point where I want to go back and count the number of times this person has used the following sentence.
Her womb clenched.
Any comments?

    Oh, boy. I mean, I get that a writer doesn’t want to seem like she’s using all the same phrases as everybody else–you want to be fresh and all! – but this sounds a bit off the mark.

    This idea is giving me cramps. Sorry.

    Oh my! Hmm. It might be interesting just to see how many times the author does use a phrase like that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Is she giving birth?

    I hate that phrase too. It pulls me out of the book every time b/c I wonder if it’s even possible.

    I don’t have one any more. I can’t feel it. I feel left out.

    Yikes! Just the idea of “clenching”. :shudder: Not sexy.

    We need a doctor’s opinion.

    CarolynJean: Once I became aware of it, I was like a dog. I love this author. I read most of her books, but this line about worked my last nerve.

    Susan and Kimberly: Sloppy sex?

    Literary Feline: I know, but I don’t know if I can do it. My womb might overwhelm me.

    Ilona: does that mean that there is no womb clenching in Magic Strikes?

    Casee: I’m assuming it’s a pre-orgasm squeeze.

    Stephanie: But you can still have sex, so you belong.

    Renee: Is there a doctor in the house?

    This sounds like something out of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” even your graphic looks like something out of that book. But in a romance novel, not so much.

    THe only thing worse is the d*ck hitting the cervix. this is NOT SEXAY!
