I like both, or one and not the other, it really depends on how I feel.

I'd like to see a mix. Who wouldn't want to see Hollywood actors and actresses having sex?

If that's never to be an option, give me good plot with intense non-spitting non-baby talking fuck making.

I like both. I think it's more of a turn on when you like the story and characters.

I like the mix of both better than just one or the other.

We agree! Plot or not, the quality has to be there!

Just finished reading the Carrie stories and the plot in those added so much to the overall hotness. The sex scenes weren't even that extensive. It's just that they were set up brilliantly, so that little spark went a long way.

For written erotica, I want some plot. Not pages and pages of character development, descriptions of people and places they go and live and play. But, just enough to set up the scene. I intensely dislike written erotica where descriptions of the scene and the characters and the plot go on for pages. Get to the sex! Let me know who these people are and what they are doing and maybe some light motivation and then get to the fun. I hate erotica writers who write as if they were going for an O. Henry Award. If you want to write fiction, write fiction. Don't bore me with your (I am talking to these authors) pages of impertinent information when all I want is for the characters to get down. OTOH, I also hate poorly written erotica. There are happy mediums. A lot of both Alison Tyler and Violet Blue's collections (which include other authors in addition to themselves) are great at having just the right amount of plot and sex. Rachel Kramer Bussel, I hate to say, tends to choose stories that have too much plot, description of things other than sex, character development and over writing. I have gotten to the point that if it isn't an assignment, I avoid her work. Sad to say.

Visual porn, I hate plot. Just give me sex.

I love reading fan fiction porn because they can play on already established dynamic which means less words required for me to get a feel of the characters. Even when I read a PWP (Plot? What plot?) I look for hidden depths - and love authors who construct their smut that way.

Variety is in the spice rack of love and life. And, we should cook things up any and every way we can. The perks, peaks and pinnacles of sex, relations and love are dependent of the interest, desire and support you give to each other as partners. That is Paramount. And, if you don't get to the top of those mountains; you will be heading down hill fast and hard. Climb every mountain with care, love and respect. But, enjoy the hills and valleys and the (Bush/Brush) (if it still exists) along the way. I enjoy the hairy adventures; not the hurried. Though quickies are nice, just before the guests arrive. All the Best.

I can't watch it if it doesn't have both... I especially love when the plot is so bad that you're in hysterics in the downtime between sex scenes, those are the best!! Two birds, one stone

When I have fantasies, I have to have extravagant and detailed plots so that I can consider them "possible." The possibility of it actually happening is what makes it so hot.

I like both, a little more plot than porn,that way you get attached to the characters and it's more arousing overall.

I don't really consider the plot so much as the action!

Depends on what I'm in the mood for.. I like porn, as of late, but plot sometimes is what works for me.

If I could only have one, I'd say porn, but if I can have both and the plot is reasonably good, I'll definitely take both.

I'm an avid reader, so I have shelf upon shelf of books with great plot. If I'm reading erotica it's specifically to get myself worked up. I tend to prefer a minimum of plot for the characters to have meaningful interactions and not much more.

I need enough plot to make the action plausible. More than that can be overkill, though reading a good story is never a waste of time.

Both! One or the other is just not enough for me.

I love reading novellas that are filled with details and well round full characters. These are the ones I curl up with and enjoy most of all. They are the ones I return to often to read because I enjoy the characters. There is a reason for them having sex, there is a reason for their actions.

But then sometimes... I don't mind the wham bam thank0you ma'am kind of stories. BUT as long as they are descriptive.

It does depend on my mood, but I generally want both. I'm greedy like that.
