How come everything I come up with sounds like a porn?

When I first published ‘Slammed’ to Amazon, the first thing that came up when you typed in my book was a porn. Luckily, that one has been knocked to the second page. But now that book 2 is finished and I’m still trying to come up with a title I love, I realize that pretty much everything else similar to ‘Slammed’ sounds like porn as well. Here are a few of the synonyms I’ve found…

Banged
Pounded
Shafted
Jibed
moshed
smacked
whacked
blasted
whammed
knocked
bumped

Now, add ‘uglies’ to the end of all those words and you’ll see what I mean.

Maybe I should just go with the most perverted title I can think of in hopes it will direct traffic to my book. How about Slammed Harder?

I just about peed my pants when I read this … The gal that sits next to me at work looked at me like I’d lost my mind. (Wait, that’s nothing new. Nevermind.)

That would have been hysterical!!

I totally think you should have gone with Slammed Harder! HaHa!!

Slammed Harder. I would have loved that title but you went ahead and ruined it for me. Now it has an appropriate title like “Point of Retreat”.

Colleen, you have no idea how hard I laugh at you and these posts. Oh, boy …

NOW I understand why you went with “Point of Retreat” I never even thought about the problems the title of “Slammed” may have caused you. Funny stuff…😂

Ha! This is the funniest thing I’ve ever heard of! Believe it or not, when I was advertising for you (free of charge, of course ..it was the least I could do for such a great story), the one girl I recommended it to said, “Is that porn? Because I’m not ready to read porn.” HA! That’s hilarious! I love it! This made my day!

And there is always Slammed 2: The Wrath of Khan .. all sequels should just use that name. KHAAANNN!!

Without reading the book or knowing plot details I can’t tell you … A Lake of Dreams?

I think pounded is good. No sexual connotations there.

No! Not Slammed Harder. I don’t have any advice other than no.
