Ever Heard of Bibliotherapy?
Seeing how troubles of all kinds trouble regular people, it’s more than normal to look for quick solutions and easy fixes. However, it’s easy to lose yourself in a world full of life coaches, therapists, and cult-like religious loonies. But it’s not all misleading and …
Last year was pretty weird, to put it mildly. From the beginning of a global pandemic to political turmoil, most people found themselves suffering from anxiety. And seeing how the only way to battle the virus is to stay at home, quarantine became our everyday life. Unfortunately, being inside four walls means being alone with your thoughts.
No matter how well-set you are, it all gets pretty tiresome after a while. Particularly for people who’re single and would instead go out and hook up with a potential partner. Luckily, there’s a way to rejuvenate your sex life even in quarantine. Hence, we’re here to talk about why reading erotica might be perfect for you.
Quarantine Just Got Horny
We’re no strangers to seeing writers, musicians, and other artists exploit the world around them. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Many great works of art and literature came from horrible conditions …
Unlike today, there was a time when sex wasn’t selling on every corner. It was much more low-key and thought of as something dangerous for public morale. However, the need for it was always there. People would find all sorts of ways to satisfy their primal urges, be it by watching porn or reading erotic novels.
And since we live in a more liberal world today, we finally have the chance to look up what was so taboo for public libraries to hide for so many years. The New York Public Library’s collection of erotica is free for everyone to enjoy. Here are some interesting details regarding their vast collection.
The Triple-Star Code
In some ways, libraries are the custodians of past times. They have all sorts of literature that you can use to understand what people’s lives were like back then. And since we’ve said that sex was taboo …
Traditionally, men are thought to be way easier to please sexually. Apparently, all guys need is to see a bit of skin, and they’re raring to go. For them, sexual desire and sexual satisfaction are easy to come across. So why is it so different with women? Or perhaps it’s not that different after all?
Both men and women need to have active sex lives to fulfill their desires for a happy life. While it may seem a bit shallow, it’s entirely normal that sexual activity is crucial for achieving the feeling of content.
But while we both enjoy sexual activities, we don’t necessarily crave the same aspects of it. For instance, women enjoying sex will be more into sharing sexual intimacy with a partner. While guys do appreciate it as well, they’re not that bothered by it. Women’s sex drives are …
Although there’s no doubt E. L. James’ work got a brand-new audience a few years ago with its box office hit adaptations, the books still have a life of their own. Sure, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan did a pretty good job, but they’re not everyone’s Ana and Christian Grey.
Namely, reading a novel and watching a movie is an entirely different experience. Literature gives everyone a chance to imagine how their protagonists and the surrounding scenography appear. On the other hand, with a movie, you get what the director gives you. And sometimes that’s not bad. But for erotic novels full of sex scenes, we’d always prefer to imagine them on our own.
Our article aims to convince you to give James’ novels a try. Not only are they modern classics of erotic literature, but they’re fun and exciting as well. Everyone’s sexual relationship can benefit from this inspirational …
Reading erotic fiction can be incredibly exciting. Not only do novels like these have interesting plots and character developments, but they’re also full of great sex scenes. Moreover, reading a book like “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” while all by yourself can prove to be more fun than watching porn or masturbating.
This 1928 novel is a classic when it comes to love, romance, and sex in literature. But unlike modern books of similar content, publishing such work wasn’t as easy back in the early 20th century. Therefore, we’ll tell you a bit more about D.H. Lawrence’s “Lady Chatterley’s Lover.” From its origin and synopsis to the publishing controversy, you’re in for a ton of surprises!
English writer and poet David Herbert Lawrence was born in Eastwood in 1885. Lawrence had a rather difficult childhood, living in poor conditions with his siblings and parents, who were working-class people. His father …
Why Do Women Love Erotic Literature More Than Porn?
The wild success of “Fifty Shades of Grey” surprised everyone except women. It came as a genuine shock to men who apparently haven’t been paying attention these past few decades (or centuries). Although a piece of forgettable literature at best, “Fifty Shades” gave women what they wanted — a sexy book.
There’s a perpetual stereotype out there that women find porn disgusting. Apparently, they think it’s vile and indecent. That’s completely untrue. Women don’t think porn is awful — they just prefer to consume it in different ways, for example, by reading erotica.
Do you remember that one “Friends” episode where Joey found Rachel’s racy book? Oh, yes, we all remember Zelda and her dirty adventures with the vicar! Well, that scene is as entertaining as it is realistic. You’re really more likely to find erotic stories in a woman’s browser …
Do men really read erotica? When “Fifty Shades of Grey” came out, erotica came to the forefront of our attention. It’s one of the most popular movie-book adaptations, and women flocked to cinemas and bookstores to see the movie for the first time and buy their copy of the book.
During that time, men stood aside, and nobody really expressed any interest in the movie. Some guys would jokingly talk about watching it, but that was all that it was — a joke. Or was it?
For some of them, it was something the Internet people would call a Schrodinger’s douchebag. Or, in this instance, perhaps it’s more fitting a Schrodinger’s erotica fan. Basically, they would put the idea out there, and they would decide whether they were sarcastic or not based on the other guys’ reaction. So, while “Fifty Shades of Grey” is …
Reading erotic fiction can be fun, exciting, and arousing. Many enjoy reading it, and there are so many stories available. Whether you are a fan of erotica or not, you might want to know that it can be both beneficial for your mental health and your sex life.
Relieves Stress and Anxiety
One of the first things you might notice if you decide to read erotica is that it will help you relieve stress. The brain is, without a doubt, the most powerful sex organ. That is where our fantasies appear first, and that’s where our dreams originate. While the erotic story you’re reading might not be your fantasy, you can still fill in the blanks in storytelling with your own kinks and preferences.
But raunchy sex stories can be arousing for many. While the quality might not always be on the level, and you certainly won’t get Oscar Wilde …
Erotic novels are a great way to express yourself. But what is the difference between good and bad erotica? We decided to give you a few hints that might help you along the way, and allow you to improve your writing skills.
Erotic Novels Are Not Just for Jerking Off
When writing about sex, your goal shouldn’t be for people to jack off to it. Not saying that it isn’t a compliment for your writing skills and story, but there should be a lot more to it. Your goal is to respect the reader, genre, and write a sex scene that is more than a porn scenario.
You should try approaching your story as any other writer. That is, you should excite people’s brains as much as their genitals. Focus on writing a thrilling story that will be exciting to read while talking about naughty stuff.
As an erotica author, I’ve found that many people have preconceived notions about the art of writing erotica and erotic romance. Before I became well versed in writing the genre, I had misconceptions of my own, and that led to much trial and error as I worked to refine my craft and learn how better to please my audience. Following are 10 tips I’ve accrued for those curious about writing erotica:
1. It’s not all about the sex—really. While sex does play a key role in erotica, the sex itself is secondary to the development of the characters and plot. A good erotica writer knows that, no matter how great the sex is, there still needs to be a good, solid story if one wants to hold a reader’s interest.
2. Dynamics sell. Flat characters never go far, but in erotica, you really do have your work cut out …
Erotic fiction has been around for centuries but, in recent years, has enjoyed a surge in popularity. If you have ever toyed with the idea of writing erotica but don’t know where to begin, here are a few tips to help get you started on the road to writing bedroom fiction.
1. Get with the genre
Though both deal heavily with the subject of sex, pornography and erotica are two different animals. Erotica follows the basic rules in writing in that there must be interesting characters and a plot surrounding the sexual elements. Porn, on the other hand, deals strictly with the act itself. If there is a plot or even interesting characters, it’s purely coincidental.
It is important to know the difference therefore immerse yourself in the writing of published erotica authors such as Katy Terretaga and Erica Jong. There are also many websites that offer a library of …
People usually associate sexual emancipation with the 20th century, but its roots go way back. Namely, an ancient Sanskrit manuscript from India we know as the Kama Sutra is one of the earliest examples of philosophies on human sexuality, erotic love, and overall life enjoyment. It’s an inspiring book, and we’re here to explore it with you. So let’s check it out, shall we?
Kama Sutra Defined
In essence, the book is an old Indian Sanskrit text that talks about many aspects of human life. The topics range from the overall art of living to finding love and maintaining peace with your partner and family. The Kama Sutra was written by an Indian philosopher, Vatsyayana and was translated into English in 1883.
The Kama Sutra has 1,250 verses split into 36 chapters and 64 sections. All these sections cover social life, love, marriage, and sex positions. They talk about the …
Victorians often have a reputation for being pretty uptight when it comes to their sexuality. However, they also had lustful desires, just like we do now. From gay to straight sex, you can argue they weren’t that different from us in real life. But the way they went about it in public wasn’t exactly liberal and open-minded like today.
Our article aims to explore the world of Victorian England and its shady underground of sexual activities. Moreover, we’re going to talk about 19th-century pornography, erotic literature, and all other things worth your time. From Oscar Wilde to Aubrey Beardsley, we’ll cover all the juicy details. So, let’s jump straight into it. Shall we?
An Unexpected World of Erotica and Pornography
The Victorian age was a pretty weird time if you compare it to the world we live in today. And yes, that’s quite normal since so much time has passed …
When it comes to erotic fiction, women do it best. Women writing for other ladies is always a recipe for success. Well, we say always, but that might be an over-exaggeration (we’re looking at you, “Fifty Shades of Grey”).
Still, even when they go the cheesy route, female writers bring sexual fantasies to life in a unique way that generally appeals to other women.
From short stories to full-length erotic fantasy novels, there’s plenty of female-written erotica out there. You just have to know where to look. Some works are edgy and too kinky for words, though. In contrast, others are the perfect combination of erotica and other genres. For example, the world-famous “Black Dagger Brotherhood” is a paranormal romance erotica saga.
All sexes love erotic fiction. Still, women usually make up the majority of the reading base. And, because women prefer female …
We are witnessing increasingly popular consumerism as a product of the modern age. Everything is available to us, and everything is easily replaceable. Imagination has disappeared, and romance is almost gone. Eroticism had a much deeper meaning in the old days, and sex was the crown of intimacy. Today we are in a hurry. We have no time, and very often, we forget that enthusiasm for life. We lost that curiosity we had as children.
So, our sex lives suffer too. Everything becomes monotonous, and, often, we lose the will for it. However, some are very happy to return to some old but proven recipes for a healthier, more fulfilling sex life. In bookstores, you can find numerous books that deal with the topic of sex, from instructional manuals for young people to guides for the more experienced, and finally to erotic novels.
What are the top sexual fantasies for men? Do all guys have particular fetishes that they fantasize about the most? Which ones are the most common, and which ones are the kinkiest? Check out our article for the most common fantasies that turn men on!
Firstly, men are usually the ones who initiate sex. Therefore, it’s only natural that many guys have submission fantasies. By being submissive, men can allow women to take control of their sexual pleasure. That can be highly stimulating. It can also make men feel like an object of intense sexual desire.
Submission fantasies can range from kinky sex games (i.e., light bondage and blowjobs) to more advanced forms of BDSM play. In light submission fantasies, men can become the object of a woman’s libido. They could allow the woman to take control. This type of submission doesn’t have to be degrading, and it …
