Erotic Romance Writers and Poets Pursue Their Ambitions with Secret Erotica

Erotic Romance Writers and Poets Pursue Their Ambitions with Secret Erotica | Sex Work | Scoop.it
With the sheer amount of freely available erotic stories online and the relative ease of modern self-publishing, it is only a matter of time before we find more erotic literature finding its way to the bookstores and our own personal bookshelves. London, England UK - July 17, 2014 /PressCable/ — Erotic literature has been a popular genre amongst (mostly) female readers for many years. However, the recent explosion of the Fifty Shades trilogy and the S.E.C.R.E.T erotica series onto the scene has created many more avid fans of provocative romance. This truth is clearly reflected by the large increase in the number of people trying to achieve success through writing and publishing erotic novels.

Why Many Young Chinese Women Are Writing Gay Male Erotica

Why Many Young Chinese Women Are Writing Gay Male Erotica | Sex Work | Scoop.it

An antipornography campaign in China has netted many young female writers of danmei, erotic fiction focusing on relationships between gay men, a popular outlet for those seeking to escape stifling social identities, scholars say.


...Danmei is part of an ‘‘ongoing sexual revolution’’ with feminist characteristics in China, perhaps the country’s first, said a Chinese academic who requested anonymity. China is currently undergoing a crackdown on pornography that has netted danmei writers and website managers, and closed some sites, sexual rights advocates said. ‘‘The campaign is really having an impact,’’ the researcher said.

Creating and consuming danmei is a way for women to explore their long-repressed sexuality, said Ms. Jacobs.

‘‘I think Chinese culture is still harsh on women in terms of how far they can go in developing a fantasy life or erotic art forms,’’ she said. ‘‘I think they have to be very careful in coming out with their fantasies. The norm is stifling.’’

The Rest Was Just Imagination - An interview with Lydia Millet


BLVR: Your book Everyone’s Pretty is reportedly based on your time working with LFP. Could you talk about this influence in specific terms? The book doesn’t seem concerned with reporting on or analyzing the pornography industry.


LM: No, that was other people’s bailiwick. To me, mass-produced pornography is excruciatingly boring and the industry only a little less so. I was mostly interested in the styles of neurosis I met there.

Eden Connor: Dirty Mind vs Debit Card: Women Desire Taboos in Their Erotica

Eden Connor: Dirty Mind vs Debit Card: Women Desire Taboos in Their Erotica | Sex Work | Scoop.it

"I've been exploring my sexuality since I was a six year old girl, when I first stumbled upon my father's Playboys. The first thing I did when I got the internet was start looking up pornography - specifically hentai, since I loved Sailor Moon at the time. I also read a lot - fiction and non-fiction - that focused frequently on taboo topics. I was fascinated by the sex trade, sexual slavery, rape, incest, and sexual deviance as a whole.

 

These three actions shaped my sexual development more than I could possibly know."

How To Write About Sex Without Being Boring

How To Write About Sex Without Being Boring | Sex Work | Scoop.it
Sexuality is one of our most basic drives, but it's also fundamental to our identities as people. Which means sex is the subject of a million cliches, and tons of terrible writing. Not to mention, stupid prejudice. The good news? Science fiction and fantasy writers have a special opportunity to look at sex afresh. Here's how.

Great question. I don't think Erotica was included in the study.

Q&A with Marie Calloway: Why does she write about sex?

Q&A with Marie Calloway: Why does she write about sex? | Sex Work | Scoop.it

For several years, Marie Calloway, 23, has explicitly described her lifestyle and sexual exploits on her blog. Now Calloway (a pseudonym she has used since the age of 19) has published a book, "what purpose did i serve in your life" (Tyrant Books, $19), said to be an account of her sexual encounters.
 
In "what purpose did i serve in your life," Calloway opens up about her relationships, which predominantly originate from cyber contact, as well as her sexual fantasies, largely involving self-degradation. In fact, her words and pornographic photographs (including images of her breasts covered in bruises) were considered so controversial that three separate printers refused to print the book.
 
A former women’s studies major, Calloway first garnered attention with her story "Adrien Brody," published on MuuMuu House, in which she describes a brief affair with a well-known New York editor. Since then, readers have been attempting to label her as either a trailblazing feminist or a self-destructive masochist.
