This is how I write erotica.
When I first started writing I wanted to be a mainstream or a literary writer. I wanted to be a respected writer.
As a young writer I read erotica even though I didn’t want to write it. I read The Tropic of Cancer, The Tropic of Capricorn, The Story of O, Lady Chatterley’s Lover and The Adventures of Fanny Hill. All of these books are not only full of sex, but they are considered literature.
I also read books that were full of sex, vulgarities and profanities. No one would consider them literature.
I publish a daily online magazine full of articles and fiction. The fiction is mainstream, literary and erotic. Guess which one consistently gets the highest hits?
