Erotica vs. Porn, You decide?
Is an erotic romance considered the same
as porn? I certainly don’t think so.
To me, erotica is a loving romance with
sex, and porn is just sex without the love. Both are made solely for your
entertainment, but they are two totally separate categories.
Erotica is there to stimulate your mind
as well as your excitement with a well thought out and detailed plot, while
porn is straight to the nitty gritty, get down and dirty, fuck me baby, wham
bam thank you, Mam… and we’re done. They even got rid of the cheesy acting they
used to do in the 80’s and 90’s. At least then it was a little comical.
Every writer strives to not only
stimulate your mind, but do their best to hook you in with your emotions as
well, which in my opinion makes all the difference. After all, take the sex out
of porn and you’ve got nothing left, but if you take the sex out of erotica you
still have the romance to enjoy, right?
When I started writing I began with contemporary romances, but then my muse steered me in the direction of Leather
and Pleasure and a series of kinky shorts were born. For the fun of it I got my
husband to read them as soon as I could get the ideas on to the page and had so
much fun with it I decided to continue on with a few others, but his reaction
to them was sort of funny when he said, “Holy shit, you aren’t really going to promote these are you?”
My reaction was, “Well yeah, why not?”
and honestly my Leather and Pleasure series is my best selling work to date. Sex
sells what can I say, and when you combine sex with a loving relationship you
can never go wrong, no matter how kinky it is.
Writing erotic romances is not an easy
task, and I enjoy it because not only do I get to unleash my inner dirty girl,
which is fun, but I also get to write an amazing love story to go along with
it. Emotions make the experience more fulfilling and I hate when people jump to
conclusions about things they don’t understand, including this subject, where
as I can shrug it off most of the time, some authors can get seriously offended
when the two are compared.
So whether you’re into porn, erotica, a
little of both, or none at all, I say don’t be so quick to put a label on it
and just enjoy life.
