I Read And I Write Erotica

I began readring erotica when I was a teenager.  The first introduction was "Lady Chatterley's Lover"  by D. H. Lawrence.

Perhaps the most famous of Lawrence's novels, the 1928 Lady Chatterley's Lover is no longer distinguished for the once-shockingly explicit treatment of its subject matter--the adulterous affair between a sexually unfulfilled upper-class married woman and the ame keeper who wor for the estate owner by her wheelchair bound husband.  Now that we're used to reading about sex, and seeing it in the movies, it's apparent that the novel is memorable for better reasons; namely, that Lawrence was a masterful and lyrical writer, whose story takes us boldly into the world of it characters.

Then of course, there were the almost forbidden novels of "Sexus" and "Nexus" by Henry Miller.

Erotica was a means of introducing a young mind (mine) into the forbidden and never discussed realm of "SEX"

Now, not only do I derive great pleasure from reading well written erotica, I also derive the same pleasure from writing the same.  The written word is so much better in allowing the reader to enter forbidden worlds.  It allows the use of the mind, whereas movies and television leave nothing for the imagination to build on.
