Secret To Seduction Poems: Don’t Rhyme Breast With Chest

RESTON, Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Valentine’s Day is only a week away, and if you’re planning on surprising your sweetie with a sexy poem, here’s a tip: Don’t rhyme “breast” with “chest.”

That’s the dirty little secret offered by poet Reb Livingston, who is the editor of The Bedside Guide To No Tell Motel (Lulu Books), a poetry anthology dedicated to seduction poems.

Livingston looked at hundreds of poems and prose looking for the ones that made her “excited, giggle or tingle.”

One of the key findings: Poems with trite rhymes like “breast” and “chest” or “rock” and “cock” rarely appeal to anyone except the author.

Another big mistake when writing seductive stanzas is focusing the poem on physical attributes, such as comparing the color of your lover’s eyes to the sky.

Livingston says you’re better on focusing on some little known aspect such as the clavicle or ear lobe. For instance, one poet told his lover he’d like the chance to draw a bow across the viola of your hips.

Finally, when writing a dirty ditty to your lover, keep a sense of humor. Livingston says being too serious in a poem can be more embarrassing than trying to get a laugh.
