"The true liberation of eroticism lies
in accepting the fact that there are millions of facets to it, a million
forms of eroticism, situations, atmospheres and variations. We have, first
of all, to dispense with guilt concerning its expansion, then remain open
to its surprises, varied expressions, and (to add my personal formula for
the full enjoyment of it) fuse it with individual love and passion for a
particular human being, mingle it with dreams, fantasies, and emotion for
it to attain its highest potency."
(Anais Nin, Eroticism in Women)

Erotic Literature may be written to sexually arouse the reader,
to stimulate one's imagination and creativity, to provide advice on sexual
techniques, offer insight into the sensual world of man and woman or to
promote the authors ideas about sexuality.
Eroticism in Literature is an ancient tradition. For example the Kama Sutra written around the seventh century B.C. and Sappho, the Greek poet philosopher from the Isle of Lesbos (630 B.C.).
"Then as he began to move, in the sudden helpless orgasm, there awoke in her new strange thrills rippling inside her. Rippling, rippling, rippling, like a flapping overlapping of soft flames, soft as feathers, running to points of brilliance, exquisite, exquisite and melting her all molten inside. It was like bells rippling up and up to culmination. She lay unconscious of the wild little cries she uttered at the last ... she felt the soft bud of him within her stirring, and strange rhythms flushing up into her with a strange rhythmic growing motion, swelling and swelling till it filled all her cleaving consciousness, and then began again the unspeakable motion that was not really motion, but pure deepening whirlpools of sensation swirling deeper and deeper through all her tissue and consciousness, till she was one perfect concentric fluid of feeling, and she lay there crying in unconscious inarticulate cries. The voice out of the uttermost night, the life! " (D. H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover)
"They fled from the eyes of the world, the singer's prophetic, harsh, ovarian prologues. Down the rusty bars of ladders to the undergrounds of the night propitious to the first man and woman at the beginning of the world, where there were no words by which to possess each other, no music for serenades, no presents to court with, no tournaments to impress and force a yielding, no secondary instruments, no adornments, necklaces, crowns to subdue, but only one ritual, a joyous, joyous, joyous, joyous impaling of woman on man's sensual mast." (Anais Nin, Spy in the House of Love, 1954)

So what is the difference between erotic art and pornography?
In our opinion, pornography is always sexually explicit. It is not necessarily arousing (particularly if the people involved do not appear to be truly enjoying themselves), nor is pornography genuinely interested in artistic merit.
Good quality eroticism, unlike pornography, is generally less sexually explicit and always sexually arousing. Eroticism is more artistic than pornography in capturing the beauty, shape and form of the human body and its deeper portrayal of our emotions, lust and desire.
Good erotic art portrays good healthy sexuality and sex; which is joyful, exciting, intimate, interesting and pleasurable.
Please see our web page on Erotic Art for more information, a Gallery of Erotic Art and a short philosophical essay 'What is Good Erotic Art?'.
Erotology is the study of erotic expression, that is, any form of representation
which seeks to sexually arouse its audience. This includes not only the
actual physical act of procreation, but the attitudes toward it, social
and cultural controls, art and literature, psychology and physiology (i.e.
mind and body).
This site is dedicated to the scholarly exploration and discussion of the field of erotology. It is designed to stimulate discourse and collaboration toward a deeper understanding of the human condition. Registration is free.

sites of a sexual nature.
They have a beautiful gallery of erotic artists and photographers.
'Almost all sell fine-art prints, should you wish to support them and get something to grace your bedroom walls.'
David Lawrence is a photographer (of over 30 years) with a definite eye for the beauty of bondage. His shibari fine art studies of women bound in rope are exquisitely beautiful.
At his website you can view his photography galleries, buy erotic prints,
his book 'Bound' and read about his inspiration.
From the website: 'Kiss My Bliss is an internet project that aims to create a place where models and photographers are free to convey their take on erotic art. As women and nude models ourselves we are especially interested in providing a space where women can express their sensuality, celebrate the beauty of their own nudity and explore the relationship between sexuality and art in their own ways without having to conform to demeaning stereotypes.'
In general, truly erotic sex scenes in movies is a rarity. In modern cinema, sex is largely fused with violence (i.e. Baise Moi by Virginie Despentes) or depicts alienating, disturbing, dysfunctional relationships (Catherine Breillat).
My partner filmed this video a few years ago on top of a mountain at the Stirling Ranges, Western Australia. I think its very sweet and sensual.

From their website: 'Vintage pornographic movies end up in attics to be
thrown away eventually. None of the great initiatives to restore movie material
from the beginning of the last century has ever been aimed at restoring
our pornographic heritage.
With this project AMEA is aiming at making a serious start in writing the history of pornographic movies.'
From the website: "Comstock Films offers award-winning erotic documentary films about real couples, having real sex. We acknowledge the role of sex in human relationships, depict it graphically, and celebrate the power and joy of sexual pleasure and emotional intimacy."
You can buy dvd's from the website, watch movie previews, read reviews and the blog.
The internet has ushered in a new era in erotic literature, allowing readers to indulge private fantasies without having to face a store clerk or mail carrier. Online bookstores now legally carry a wide range of quality erotic literature.
The explosion of quantity in erotic literature has not translated into an equal rise in quality. Some stories do have serious literary merit and perhaps are even written by accomplished, published writers using pseudonyms to avoid having their commercial name associated with salacious material.
'Housewyfe Wendy' is a middle aged woman who writes eloquently about (re)discovering her sex life with her husband. She is a highly intelligent, creative, insightful and seemingly honest writer. Her sex blog makes for an interesting and enlightening read.
Somehow in the process of him leaving for the cave, he let his hands get the better of him and he ended up making exceedingly good use of all that pent up sexual energy I had been generating all day.
He got me off something fierce. And something soft. And something rough. And something kinky. And something perfect. A bunch of times.
I can only give highlights: I was in The Trance. Ravished and unaware of anything but feeling.
A favourite moment. I was insanely randy. The orgasms came really quickly but the disappointment over the speed of attaining them (I get off too fast) was dulled by the sexy, sexy intensity and sensuality of it all. At one point, Caveman is lying on his back and I am beside him. Because he is so fully dressed, my nakedness feels extra naked. He holds my legs as wide apart, as wide as they will go, using his legs as straddlers. He's very tall so it works well. I am prisoner of love.
He strokes and fingers. He frequently wets his fingers with his mouth. That licking sound grabs me. Makes me wish he was going down on me. His legs assert themselves to confirm I cannot move. A sudden wet something (finger, thumb?) goes up my ass and stops in that place where I get the tail buzz.
I realize the power of the tailgasm is almost opposite of an orgasm. While a clitgasm builds and climaxes, a tailgasm is a steady something of good feeling that is unwavering. And it's a matter of how much good I can stand. Lying there with my legs so wide, my pussy so open, the air blowing on me, the tail buzzing: I am ready to blow.
My tits get very hard at times like this. My nipples are insanely sensitive. Big cave hands all over right then would be heavenly. But I feel nothing but the cold air of the fan making my nipples sharp like the tips of knives.
At the same moment that he goes big and deep in my cunt, zeroing right in on the g-spot with all the thrust I was dying for, he starts sucking my hard tit: lapping it up. His late-day whiskers feel painfully good. Prickling through the numbness of the arousal.
He fucks me like crazy. I am all too well aware of the tail feeling and I feel like my hips are floating, fleeing from the scene. I pretend my hands are tied behind my head and resistance is indeed futile. The ass and pussy fucking settle down while he rattles away on the clit. I'm insanely wet and he uses my own wetness to lube up. Like the perfect psychic masturbator, he delivers the Great Clitontic O. I have been released.
I feel that great whoosh of numbness, like my whole body fits in a warm hand like a bird.
I spent years thinking of sex as a reward for when things are good. Not a release when things are not so good. And now, it's everything. It celebrates the great, heals the bad, nurses the worries, remedies the cramps, distracts from the headaches, confirms the absurd, makes a brilliant mockery of everything that weighs my heart down. But mostly just carries me away. I think I'm liking this sex stuff.

Sapphic Erotica refers to the eroticism of Lesbians. The word 'lesbian' is derived from the Greek Isle of Lesbos. Sappho was a Poet Philosopher who lived there around 630 B.C. She wrote poetry for the women of Lesbos. Thus the evolution of the word "sapphic" from Sappho.
Below are quotes from the poetry of Sappho with some Sapphic Erotica pictures.
"When I look on you a moment, then I can speak no more, but my tongue falls silent, and at once a delicate flame courses beneath my skin, and with my eyes I see nothing, and my ears hum, and a wet sweat bathes me, and a trembling seizes me all over."
"Love is a cunning weaver of fantasies and fables."
"What is beautiful is good, and who is good will soon be beautiful. ... Beauty endures only for as long as it can be seen; goodness, beautiful today, will remain so tomorrow."
"Sweetest mother, I can weave no more to-day,For thoughts of her come thronging,Her for whom my heart is longing - For I know not where my weary fingers stray."
"How love the limb-loosener sweeps me away."
Please see our webpage on Lesbian Sex & Erotica for more Sapphic Pictures.
This is a study of the portrayal of sex and drug use in the most popular movies of the last 20 years (using the Internet Movie Database list of the top 200 movies of all time). Films released or set prior to the HIV era (pre 1983), animated, not about humans or G/PG rated, were excluded. Sexual activity, sexually transmitted disease (STD) prevention, birth control measures, drug use and any consequences discussed or depicted were recorded.
When your eyes are presented with erotic images in a way that keeps you
from becoming aware of them, your brain can still detect and respond to
the images according to your gender and sexual orientation, a team of University
of Minnesota psychologists has found.
The purpose of the work was to uncover mechanisms by which the brain processes visual information that is not consciously perceived by the subjects.

From their website: 'These stories are meant to be listened to become aroused, both when alone or with a partner, as they are written and produced in such a way as to coax, push, demand, entreat, enchant or count you through to orgasms. They place you as the central character, you are the one things happen to, you are the center of attention. They are your stories.'
While this site does offer a nice audio sample, you have to pay to download Erotica. It is about $10 U.S. for one Sex Story. I will be reviewing some of the stories in the near future. (Karene)

Hentai is a Sino-Japanese compound term widely used in
modern Japanese to designate a person, action or state that is considered
queer or perverse, particularly in a sexual
Apart from this general use of the term hentai, it can also be used to designate a specific genre of Japanese manga comics and adult animation / cartoons that features extreme or perverse sexual (XXX pornographic) content and it is in this sense that hentai has become well-known among western fans of Japanese popular culture.

From the website: 'The young female protagonists of Miyazaki's scenarios are bold, confident and adventurous. The elder women are often ambiguous and victims of being women in a man's world, or railing against this. Miyazaki's universe is often populated by domineering female characters in opposition to the girls or adolescents shown 'becoming' women. In many ways, Miyazaki is chiefly interested in exploring the rites of passage of girls, a subject more frequently associated in western cinema as being the domain of male concerns.
'While Japan has traditionally been, and still is, a predominately patriarchal society, the growing strength of women in Japanese society has led to an increase of warrior-type heroines. The Japanese titles targeted to both men and women in Japan are popular with North American girls and women. Many anime titles have strong female lead characters and themes that are considered feminine in North America.'
'The most widely held misconception about Japanese animation held by North Americans is that an inordinately high percentage of animé consists of ultra-violent science fiction and hardcore pornography. While many of the first animé titles that were made widely available in North America were of these two genres, the reality is that they make up just a small portion of the whole Japanese animation market.'
