Four months after their extraordinary rescue from being buried alive 69 days, the Chilean miners, Los 33, made new headlines by revealing that, during their ordeal, they contemplated suicide and cannibalism.Well, if we were buried a half mile under the earth, certain that a slow painful death was inevitable, thoughts of suicide would most likely shadow our minds too.Interestingly enough, cannibalism is the exact opposite thought, the life force exerting itself.Two choices at polar opposites: Kill yourself to end pain versus stay alive by any means.As good luck would have it, the miners weren’t forced to carry out either extreme.

Here’s the truth: if your characters engage in any type of sexual activity, if they even have a vaguely sexual thought, your readers are going to think it all comes directly from your own personal experience.  And there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.
