I am irritated that both "breast" and "bosom" have come to euphemistically mean tits. Because the word I want in this scene is "bosom," as in "bared his bosom," of a male character.

And I can't use it because squeamish people have fucked up my language.

Also, I have cut a sex scene with some exposition in it, and now I need to find another sex scene to put the expo into, thus violating the rule I formulated when I first drafted this book. To wit: "Never put the exposition in the homoerotic kissing scene, because nobody will remember it later."
