Women’s Erotica

God, I hate Women’s Erotica. Sorry, but in my book that term is simply code for ‘Erotica that Sucks’. Actually, I’m not that big a fan of the term ‘Erotica’. If you are reading it because it’s sexy, it makes you hot and horny, then it is porn my friends. And there is nothing wrong with that. While there is a ton of bad, degrading, insulting and just plain mediocre pornography out there, there is also plenty of good, worthwhile stuff to be found, if you are willing to look.

I don’t really believe in the concept of ‘Women’s Erotica’ anyway. Erotica (if you will, I prefer to call it Porn, or in the case of the written word, ‘Pornographica’) is merely ‘Porn that works for You”. People have wildly different taste in porn, and it doesn’t necessarily split along gender lines. Far from it, in my experience. What is generally called ‘Women’s Erotica’ tends to be softer, more plot-and relationship- based, and less graphic. Which is fine, if you like that sort of thing.

I’ll step down off my soapbox now. thank you.
