Why You Should be Reading Erotica
Erotic literature surely has its way with you. It sinks deeply in, grabbing a hold and rocking your mind and body. Not only does it inspire and entertain, but it also teaches us. It’s no wonder that there are so many different genres of erotica, available in both literature and film.
Here are some reasons why you should be reading erotica, and what tantalizing tales are available on the market right now.
You Get to Know and Even Like the Characters
Unlike porn, which can have an almost non-existent plot and flighty characters, erotic literature enables you to become a part of their lives. You feel their plights and perils, grow with them in their budding relationships, and ultimately wind up being far more involved in their sex scenes than a movie can typically offer. You get to know them on both an intimate and sexual level.
Packed with Innovation
While we’re on the topic of story lines and character development, erotica has a lot more originality packed in. Instead of the same old plumber randomly showing up at a young woman’s front door to fix her “faulty leak,” the characters could be involved in a murder scandal, perhaps met while hitchhiking through Europe, or randomly bumped into each other at a business function. But I can assure you that they didn’t meet because the lady of the house couldn’t afford to pay the gardener.
Create Your Own Fantasy
Erotic literature gives you the ability to fill in the spicy details you desire in the characters. When it’s time to have some sexy time with yourself, you can simply pick and choose attributes from the characters that you find attractive. Porn typically takes away the mystery and presents you with two paid actors moaning and sweating.
You’ll Have Way More Sex
For all you fact-driven darlings: a recent study published by Psychology Today suggests that women who read erotica have 75% more sex than those who don’t. Additionally, The Journal of Sex Research states that women who frequently fantasize (as they do when reading erotica) have more fun in the bedroom.
There’s even an academic term used to describe the awesome (and super delightful!) beneficial mind/body reactions that occur from reading sexy stories. It’s called “bibliotherapy.”
Bringing You Closer
Not only will erotic literature help you get to your happy place, but it’s also a great educational tool for couples that are hungry for something more than the typical “wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am” traditional porn offers. Reading actions and positions described in great detail can be helpful in figuring out how to perform them. And best of all, they come in every genre imaginable, including western, Sci-fi, and LGBTQ!
