Billy Joel got it right: sometimes all you need is imagination. This sensual piece of better-than-porn literature brings all the power of the imagination to bear. A well-chosen phrase that simply suggests a delicious distortion of the sexual experience can have a far greater role than all the exposed erotic stories and images in the world.
Thrillers have a long and proud history that goes back centuries. Often referred to as the world’s first novel, Genji Monogatari The Tale of Genji was written in Japan around the 8th century AD and is full of vivid, sensual erotica. “Ru pu tan” (meat prayer rug) is another example of adult literature in ancient China. These thriller stories can be classified as gimmicks or playboys of the time.
Sex literature has played an important role in the development of society because it acts as an escape valve. Thrillers are a way to escape, to bring out feelings that need to be released by other means. Stories of BDSM, humiliation, bondage and other dangerous activities provide a means of releasing sexual tension in a completely harmless way.
Unfortunately, such forces have not always seen the bright side of sexual fantasies. The classic adult novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover has been banned in many countries for decades. Likewise, Sons and Lovers by DH Lawrence has been deemed too sexually graphic and has become a taboo text in both the UK and the US. Ironically, it was selected as one of the classic novels of the twentieth century by the Modern Library in 1999.
Desktop literature is booming these days. In print, adult novels such as Bedtime, Playtime and The Veldrate have appeared in recent years. A recent Amazon search turned up nearly 250 interesting works that try to continue the wonderful tradition of writing about weird and exciting things.
The web has offered many lewd and pompous sex stories. The main trend seems to be to take fictional characters like Harry Potter and give them sexual and fictional lives. The anonymity of the medium allows people to reveal their deepest and most profound longings without fear.
However, erotica is definitely a genre of art and literature. Some people mistakenly compare it to pornography, but it is nothing like that. Not everyone can write erotica, and only a few manage to create great free erotica stories. There are many criteria to consider, balance, style, speed. It is not easy to clearly and interestingly convey fantasy from the world!
