Summer Scorcher Blog Tour week 3 with Amie Louellen- The 12 stages of intimacy

Welcome to part 2 of Amie Louellen's Summer Scorcher Blog post!

If this is your first stop, make sure to check out Amie's blog for the first post!!

All right I promised you the steps so here they are and yes, they are in a particular order— 

1. Eye to Body

2. Eye to Eye

3. Voice to Voice

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 Bosom

11. Hand to Erogenous Zones.

12. Consummation.

I admit, some of these are no brainers and some may be a little tame. But each stage is important in its own right. After all, you can’t get to step 7 without having passed step 1, now can you?

All of these steps are important , but most romance heroes and/or couples rush or skip steps. That’s what leads to the fun…er, I mean, trouble.

But you’ll have to go to the next blog in order to find out how much fun, uhum trouble rushing things got Brodie and Savanna into…

Amie is giving away a PDF copy of Brodie's Bride to one lucky commenter along the tour. You must leave a comment on each of the tour stops to be eligible to win. So, click those links, read some steamy excerpts and comment away! The winner will be entered into a drawing at the end of the tour for a chance to win a $30 Amazon GC!

Oh yes, I remember this story from the Sizzling Summer Extravaganza. Yes, skipping steps can be fun...I mean trouble!

Mara said...

You're right, alot of these body part combinations make logical sense, but I'm a little stumped on arm to shoulder. I've been in a dating/sex slump for, er, um, a really, REALLY long time, so perhaps I have forgotten how some of this stuff works? If anyone could explain...

Amie said...

Awh...thanks for remembering, Nicki. It couldn't be that I've splashed Brodie on every available surface since I got the cover art! LOL

Amie said...

Gosh, Mara, good observation. But I think what the hand to shoulder really stands for is a closer touch than hand to hand (or hand to elbow( but not quite to hand to waist. Heterosexual men do not touch each other that way. They will clap hands on shoulders and sling their arm around another guy's shoulder, but the hand to waist is reserved for a love conquest. It's just one step closer to second base! :) Thanks for coming by! <3

Beth Trissel said...

Ah right, I remember these stages now. :) but I couldn't trot them out for you all defined like that. Good job. fun post.

Mona Risk said...

Hi Lisa, I saw these steps before but have competely forgotten them. Thanks for the reminder. I don't know if my hero/heroine follow them or skip while in rush...

Jennifer Ann Coffeen said...

I love this! It's helpful to have all the stages written out like that. It may seem obvious, but it's really easy to forget one!

EdgesAngel22 said...

I think I'm gonna have to keep those steps in mind while I work on the rewrite of a story I've been working on for oh I think about 11 years or so now lol!
Great post!

Amie said...

Look at this! Stay away from the computer one day and I get all these visitors. :) I love it.

Thanks, Beth, I'm glad you enjoyed the post. I've always found the steps intriguing.

And Mona, you can be sure the characters manage to mess them up some way or another. Otherwise we wouldn't have much of a story.

Jennifer--feel free to print out this list. I had gone over them years before at a conference, but I googled it for this post. Just put in the stages of intimacy and see what comes up. Hang on a sec... Brace yourself first
*then* see what comes up. LOL

Keep on revising, Ashley. When I got ready to submit Brodie, I had to account for his cell phone because when wrote this book the average person didn't have one. LOL Yes, it was that long ago! :)

And a big THANKS to everyone who stopped by this week. Hope you had a good time!

Jennifer Lane said...
