What is erotica and where can you submit a erotic story or poem
What is erotica? One of the best definition's state, that erotica is "writing intended to arouse and excite sexual feelings and desires". Erotica can also be visual. You might want to think about that. Erotica is about sex. It is about exciting the reader. It is not about any vague warm and fuzzy feelings with intellectual pretensions. It is about one of nature's most basic urges.
The purpose of erotica is to turn the reader on; to get the reader hot and bothered; to make the reader hard and wet. If the writer is doing it right, he or she is going to be just as affected by the writing. If you are not squirming in your seat as you write, it will not work with the reader. To do this, you have to be honest with yourself.
The biggest enemy of the beginning erotica writer is the writer's own internal censor. People will tell you why you should not write erotica. They will tell you that it is dirty. Nice people do not write this stuff. Your mother will see it. Your children will see it. The neighbors will see it. People will know that you do these perverted things.
First of all, sex is not dirty. Most people like sex. There would not be six billion people on this earth if they did not. Anyone who does not like sex is either doing it terribly wrong or may need professional help.
Nice people do write erotica. Ordinary people write erotica. People from different backgrounds and age groups from all over the world write erotica.
If you don't want your mother or children or friends to see it, don't show it to them and use a pen name.
As for people knowing that you do the things in your stories, consider that crime scene writers, sci fi writers and any others don't do the things they write about. . Most erotica concerns sex fantasies from the back of people's imaginations. Just because you write about it doesn't meant that you do it. Besides, sex story sites have many many visitors , if your neighbors are reading it, they must like it too.
What is the difference between porn and erotica? Erotica tends to be of the written word, while porn tends to be more about actual visualizations. The bottom line is, If the words turn you on, it is erotica. If the visual stimulation turns you on then it is porn. If it does nothing at all, it is garbage.
