I enjoy erotica as long as it is well written, extremely detailed and not written by a writer who can't write it dirty. Nothing kills an erotic story faster than reading terms like moist flower, hard member, throbbing manhood etc.

Here is some other ones lol I cut and pasted this from a blog entry I did last November about sex reviewers being unable to use terms like penis and vagina. These are actual terms/words that I have seen in either a review for a sex toy or on blogs involving erotica and sex in general. These were serious blogs, not in anyway meant to be comedic. Hope these make you laugh also.


lady/male bits
tender bits
nub
sensitive button
his parts
back hole (instead of actually saying anus)
vajayjay
Your you know what (yes I actually saw that in a review once ~growls~)
lovehole
hole
nether region
down below
member
dangly bits
privates
doing the deed
sweaty time
little swimmers (used in a post in regards to oral sex)
white stuff (used in a review of a male masturbation sleeve)

It's enjoyable to read them. I would wager it's more fun to write some.

Or worse, when they write in a very technical and clinical manner.

I whole heartedly agree with you.

I haven't read much erotica. but it does get me in the mood for sex, solo or w/ my partner.

And what you reads ends up sounding like a either a sex education lesson or a text book. Seen a few of those. Another one is a person who writes erotica and has no clue what they hell they are talking about, encountered a few of those but those types of stories are usually confined to fan fiction or poorly written erotica that becomes mainstream because people view it as edgy.

I enjoy reading erotica. I wish Eden had not discontinued all the books.

Wow, ok well I hope I don't run across most of those while reading erotica! Lol.

I didn't know Eden's sold books, must've been before I joined.

Do you have any examples of the ones that became "mainstream"?

Lol I read it almost every day. Maybe that's why I'm usually in the mood for sexual activity... Hmm I guess I'll have to get my husband to read more often too.

I enjoy reading them sometimes...for me, it's about the chase. if there's a good chase, it's a good story.

Eden used to have a nice assortment of books.

I think online erotica and e-books have virtually killed demand for printed books.
I refuse to use my tablet in the tub so I've purchased quite a few printed books to read while soaking in the tub. I'd buy more if Eden still had them.

I've always been more into erotica than porn. I'm not entirely sure why, but my guess is that it's just because I've always been an avid reader. When I was first introduced to it, a friend showed me literotica.com, which is (or was?) all user-submitted stuff. Some was awful, but there were some gems too.

I buy mine at BAM or Borders. I am on the computer a lot, so when I have time to read I tend to prefer printed books as opposed to ebooks.

Yes, I've been to that site a few times. I still tend to prefer store bought books though. I don't honestly care for porn, however I love erotica, so I completely understand where you're coming from. Something about reading it just seems more stimulating to me.

So you prefer to read books that involve one person having to capture the interest of the other person as opposed to them starting out good friends and falling in love over time, right? Hmm, that's an interesting point of view, one I will need to keep in mind when I write.

Most of the ones I read are "fanfics", but yep.
A few of my favorites lately are LotR themed (usually Elrond/someone else where he's dominant. <w<; ) or Labyrinth themed where Jareth is dominating an older version of Sarah. xD

I don't think I've actually read any "fanfics" but I do read a lot of printed erotica.

I love reading erotica in all kinds of forms, though I wish Eden still had the books :/ I was quite disappointed when those disappeared.

Literotica is one of the best sites for erotica.

I do like to read erotica, but I find literotica and other sites frustrating to navigate. I'll end up thinking a story is about x or falls under x category, then I'll read it and it wasn't remotely accurate and because of that it was more of a turn off. I also hate it when a site I liked reading stories on, disappears into cyperspace. I wish in retrospect I had saved the stories to my computer.

Or huge grammar/spelling mistakes can kill the mood-I'm fairly literate.

Oh, yes, errors pull me right out of the story! But, worse, is getting into a story, as you mentioned, thinking it is about one thing and then getting slapped in the face with it going where you least want to go! I had that happen with a free series I started reading and while the beginning scenes weren't too bad, just a little rough,, I was blindsided with what turned out to be an upsetting, horribly sadistic, snuff scene the that narrating character got off on!!! OMG, I am still scarred from that! It came from nowhere! with no warnings to be found in the descriptions or category in which it was posted. Thank goodness, I have never had anything like that happen again. I really think the author did it on purpose and was hiding the content in a wrong category to avoid the censors on the selling site. I think had it at least been in the BDSM section, I would have had the chance to avoid it.

@SaucyxGirl, loved the extended list you posted, LMAO!!

It's very rare that I read erotica, and it's usually fan-produced stuff when I do. That said, I once watched a hentai series that was a complete turn-off, but stuck around for the plot. Can't quite remember its name right now.
