"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)
Sapphic Erotica is 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.
Sapphic erotica is reasonably popular on the internet. It is interesting
that 'lesbian' is the ranked 11th of all sex search terms and receives 80,000
Ideas I would further like to explore are the differences in how lesbians are depicted and treated in mainstream society (eg. masculine dykes) as opposed to pornography (eg. hot lesbian orgies). It is also intriguing how lesbian scenes are a part of mainstream pornography, while gay males have their own genre.

Below are quotes from the poetry of Sappho with some Sapphic Erotica pictures. I have also included some summaries of websites and studies on female arousal, homosexual women, sexuality and vintage erotica.
I hope you find it interesting!
"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." (Sappho, 630 BC)

Retro Raunch is a pay site, though the free guest tour with Miss Lacey is fun (she strips down to the naked truth).
From the website: 'RetroRaunch is about vintage erotica: bringing the tasty, nasty, wild, wacky, outrageous, shocking, beautiful, erotic and utterly special soft and hardcore porn from the past into the high-tech present of the internet.'

Three decades of research on men's sexual arousal show patterns that clearly track sexual orientation - gay men overwhelmingly become sexually aroused by images of men and heterosexual men by images of women. In other words, men's sexual arousal patterns seem obvious. But a new Northwestern University study boosts the relatively limited research on women's sexuality with a surprisingly different finding regarding women's sexual arousal.
In contrast to men, both homosexual and heterosexual women showed a bisexual pattern of psychological as well as genital arousal. That is, heterosexual women were just as sexually aroused by watching female stimuli as by watching male stimuli, even though they prefer having sex with men rather than women.
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)
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.

Analyse any human emotion, no matter how far it may be removed from the sphere of sex, and you are sure to discover somewhere the primal impulse, to which life owes its perpetuation. ... The primitive stages can always be re-established; the primitive mind is, in the fullest meaning of the word, imperishable. ... Mans most disagreeable habits and idiosyncrasies, his deceit, his cowardice, his lack of reverence, are engendered by his incomplete adjustment to a complicated civilisation. It is the result of the conflict between our instincts and our culture. (Sigmund Freud)
We get a lot of people writing to us asking questions about sex. So we have added an 'Ask a Question' feature to our sexuality pages - to help share questions and answers as a way of helping one another.
