I don't think I'm a prude. It's just that this particular word, c*nt, is a favorite swear word of mine, to be used sparingly, but only when I'm trying to get across my disgust at the person I'm upset with. C*nthair is even better. So when it's used in sex scenes, no matter how much I was enjoying the scene up to that point, I get pulled out of it every time.
I've commented on this many times to other authors, and most laugh at me for this particular foible. They tell me it's a legitimate word and they say they're negating the power of it by reclaiming it and using it in their sex scenes. I guess that's the problem. I don't want them to negate the power of this, one of my favorite curses. So many swear words have been rendered powerless by the constant repetition in rap music, or among teenagers who casually throw them around, even in classrooms. But a curse loses its power when it becomes casually acceptible.
