What kind of erotica are you interested in reading?

I am in the process of planning out the Naked Reader Book Club list of books for the 2011 year and I am looking for some feedback on what y'all are into reading.

The poll covers general topics, but feel free to not only suggest other genres, but specific book titles in comments. We partner with Cleis Press, so if you suggest a specific title, it needs be published by Cleis to be considered.

For me, it isn't the genre or topic, as much as it is the quality of the story written. That being said, BDSM and Bondage are probably the ones I would most want to read. I would also be interested in "How To Guides" if they were on a topic that I was interested in learning more about.

Gay, Male Dominants, BDSM. But like NuMe said, it really depends on the quality of the stories.

Couple-centered, BDSM, Bondage, and maybe Male Domination.

Gritty erotica. No matter the subject.
I like everything gritty. Just ask my netflix.

I like a variety, that is why I enjoy collections with multiple stories from different authors

I'd love to get some bondage how-to books, but I think I'd just use them to learn the knots, then never use them for bondage. :/
Turning erotic books into boyscout manuals...

Thanks you guys! This is a great help!

I love how BDSM and kinky stuff is in the lead... perverts (I mean that in a good way, of course, since it's a genre I love)

I second "Slave to Love". (But wait for second edition pleeeeease which comes out in March.)

Hide and Seek would be awesome too. I would like "Peep Show" too. Or what about Alison Tyler's alphabet series?

And I'm always for all of Cleis Press's how-to books. Those make me so happy.

I'm surprised that BDSM is so high up there. Wow.

Big fan of yaoi erotica, but I have found I like 'furry' erotica as well (anthro animals and/or aliens). Guess like sci-fi erotica or something? Fantasy erotica? Dunno what you'd define it as.

New to the club. Just ordered my first book yesterday. I personally prefer BDSM, but will read pretty much any genre. As NuMe said, its more about the quality than anything.

Reading as a couple, we'd prefer more choices that aren't Female-centered Erotica this year. Those are awkward for both of us when it's his turn to read aloud. Although it *is* amusing sometimes (every hear a man describing his hot swollen labia?)

I like romantic bondage...unfortunatel y, most of the erotic I've seen with bondage includes a lot of humiliation - which is a huge turn off for me...

This is me too. I like to read all of the above. I guess while just looking at book titles I might look at more BDSM and bondage, but really, I read anything I can get my hands on.

I like the "fantasy/sci-fi" erotica as well. That is one one of the main genres of books that I read in general. I used to think that if I ever wrote a novel it would be a Fantasy/Sci-fi with a good story, but also involve romance and erotica. When I am reading these types of books, and there is a romance, I am always wishing they would write out the sex scenes. To mys surprise, there have been many romance novelists doing this now with vampires and werewolves and one series in particular had witches and demons. These are okay, the sex scenes pretty hot and very interesting, but I would like to see a collection of erotica that is nothing but sex. There are so many things they could do. My ex was writing a novel about a world where there was a race of humanoid cat people. The main character was a 7 foot tall black cat, and his love interest a human woman. I always asked him to write me a sex scene between these two. He never got around to it though. That would have been hot!

I know on Fur Affinity, So Furry, and I think perhaps Ink Bunny, people post fics, a lot of it erotica. Of course it's mostly anthros as has been said before. Not sure about any aliens in there, though.

I also check out AdultFanfiction.net for fanfics with my favorite characters from games and such. The yaoi there is great.

And I, too, like just plain smutty fics. No romance, no real plot, just give me the good stuff!

Well, you can come hang out at a Naked Reader discussions (I believe the next one meets Tuesday, January 25th). You can also email Laurel ( laurelb @ edenfantasys dot com ) and let her know you're interested in joining the club and get the full requirements of everything from her (They're really not that bad, I just can't remember them off the top of my head )
