Erotica is not something easily defined or easily accepted by society. I often been accused of writing porn by those who think that any kind of writing that examines the bounds of intimacy is dirty and something that should be kept in the bedroom. Most look at all Erotica as porn. But I must warn you that one persons porn is another persons erotica.
One thing erotica is not is badly written trash. I'm sorry to disappoint you but I don't write trash. There seems to be a misconception between people thinking erotica consists of just sex. Erotica doesn't have to be of sex at all . It can be something that teases the reader in a sensual, seductive writing style. Sometimes the sex in an erotic story makes us smile or feel the warmth of the love between two human beings.
Let me be blunt here porn is nothing more than something that has the ability to supply a stiff penis or wet moist panties, Erotica writing says something about human beings and looks at sex as a beautiful art between two people. Comparing porn to erotica is like comparing fruit to vegetables.
Erotica writing paints a picture in ones mind. It is composed of word images and metaphors that arouse the reader through vivid description and imagery. The line between Erotica and porn is often times blurred as the debate between Erotica and porn goes on throughout the web.
However for the purpose of this article I feel the need to point out that I am not a porn writer. I want to point out that my writing is Erotica and not porn. As a sensual woman who is very much in touch with her sexuality I have all these images of sexual intimacy burning in my mind and I put my fingers to the keyboard and begin to share those intimates moments of love making. Isn't that why we write any gene of writing because we have thoughts within ourselves dieing to get out? Erotica it explores the eroticism of everything, not just the details of sex.
When I write erotica I concern it with love, caring, cherishing, affection and commitment. Erotica it recognizes both the sexual and the romantic impulses in love making. So what is my own reaction when people call me a porn writer. Well my first thought is to tell them that it wouldn't hurt for them to go out and get a few fantasies of their own. But then I think to myself to each their own. Like I said in the beginning of this article that one persons porn is another persons erotica.
Personally, I delight in creating writing that perhaps can be shared between a couple and explore their own sexuality. Erotica is imagination and exploring ones imagination. I think that so many have been blinded by the taboo aspects of sex and real porn that they can not look at except erotica literature for what it is. There is intimacy that is in Erotica that just isn't in porn.
Erotica comes from the word eros, meaning "physical love." That just what Erotica is physical beautiful love.
