elvses shares some of the difficulties faced by slash writers:

I would like to clarify why I don't like writing sex scenes. First, the terminology is frightful. I have come across stories that use words like "ass-globes". But really, when you think about it, the less ludicrous alternatives are hardly better. Second, there are pronoun issues. He, him, his. It gets confusing when both parties are he, him and his. Either you clarify and use the word "Glorfindel" seventeen times per paragraph, or you risk mass confusion along the lines of "I didn't know Elves were that flexible...".
