Sexy Stories and Erotica - A Long History of Short Stories

January 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 595

THE REALITY OF FANTASY

Billy Joel got it right: sometimes a fantasy is all you need. Better than pornography, a juicy piece of literotica brings all the power of the imagination into play. A well-chosen phrase, simply hinting at the delicious naughtiness of the sexual experience, can be a far bigger turn on than all the blatant sex videos and pictures in the world.

Sexy stories have a long and proud history dating back centuries. The 'Genji Monogatari' (Tale of Genji), often described as the world's first novel, was written in Japan in around the eighth century AD and is packed with lush and vivid eroticism. 'Rou Bou Tan' (Prayer Mat of Flesh) is another example of adult literature from ancient China. These sexy tales can be classed as the Hustler or the Playboy of their day.

Erotic literature has played an important part in the development of society because it acts as an escape valve. A sexy story is a means for escape, venting passions that would need releasing through other means. Tales of BDSM, humiliation, bondage and other risque acts provide a means of unleashing sexual tension in a totally harmless way.

Sadly, the powers that be haven't always seen the beneficial side of sexual fantasies. The classic adult novel 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' was banned for decades in many countries. Likewise, 'Sons and Lovers', also by DH Lawrence, was deemed too sexually graphic and became a forbidden text in both the UK and the USA. Ironically, the Modern Library selected it in 1999 as one of the classic novels of the 20th century.

Literotica is blossoming in the present day. In printed form, recent years have seen the emergence of adult novels such as 'Bedtime, Playtime' and 'The Velderet'. A recent search on Amazon shows around 250 sexy works that seek to further the fine tradition of writing about the exotic and erotic.

The web has spawned rich offerings of lush and lewd stories. A major trend seems to be taking established fictional characters such as Harry Potter and creating absorbing sexual and fantasy lives for them. The anonymity of the medium allows people to reveal their deepest and darkest yearnings without fear.

Yet erotica is definitely an art, and a literary genre. Some wrongly compare it to porn, but it is nothing like it. Not everyone can write erotica, and only a few manage to deliver awesome free sexy stories. There are many criteria to take into consideration, the balance, the style, the pace, the momentum...

Fantasy is from a universe that is not that easy to express in a clear and interesting manner!

A few websites are surfing on the erotica wave, such as Literotica (probably the longest established website of this genre) and Lush Stories, but there is also a little sexy stories website out there that is worth watching: My Pouty Lips
