It’s not often we see novels you can call erotic and classic in the same sentence. However, the controversial novel “Lolita” by Vladimir Nabokov is just that. Critics consider his work as one of the best novels of the 20th century, and yet it is as taboo as anything you’d ever read. Therefore, our article aims to explain why it’s so good, and why you should consider adding it to your bookshelf.
Born in 1899, Vladimir Nabokov was a Russian writer, poet, and translator. He came from a wealthy and prominent family — Nabokov’s grandfather was a Minister of Justice, while his father was a lawyer and politician. On the other hand, his mother was the heiress of a wealthy mine owner.
Growing up in such an upper-class family meant that Vladimir learned Russian, French, and English early. His passion for literature was evident from an early age …

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 …
What are some of the hottest sexual fantasies that women love but won’t admit? While women can have many kinky fantasies, some are more common than others. They can range from vanilla sex to even the kinkiest, most extreme forms of hardcore intercourse. Are you curious to learn more? Keep reading to learn about some secret sex acts that most women fantasize about!
Being Completely Dominated
Most women love to be submissive during sex, and almost every girl has some secret domination fantasy. The reason is that sexual domination can make a woman feel overpowered and lose control. That’s why many ladies fantasize about activities like spanking, slapping, choking, scratching, name-calling, bondage, and more. That also includes BDSM and more extreme aspects of forceful play like rape fantasies.
With all of those examples, it’s worth noting that they do not reflect what a woman really wants. Consensual and playful force …
Have you heard of John Holmes? He was a pornstar in the 70s and pretty much the real-life Dirk Diggler (from Boogie Nights). Holmes was famous for having a huge king cock, and there were even mythical stories about it. He insured his penis for $14 million — a million for every inch! There’s even a fake story about how they tried him for manslaughter after he inadvertently killed two men during anal.
Trying out new dildos is fun since you can mess around with their sizes. If you have a growing selection, opening that special drawer would be like going through hors d’oeuvres. Sure, you start off small, but as time goes by, your size-queen eyes start getting hungry. You keep catching yourself biting your lip while watching Boogie Nights, and before you know it, you’re on Google, typing in “monster dildo.”
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 …
