Why Erotica?

Thanks to all of you for so many kind words.  I am pleased to have brought a little entertainment, and maybe even scandal, to you.

I have been asked why I write erotica.
The fact is - I really enjoy it, and if you really enjoy doing something, then why don't you do it?

What surprised me about writing erotica was the number of women who are doing it!
Like many people, I thought that erotica was the domain of male writers, and that it was mainly deemed to be a form of "literary pornography"!

How wrong could I be??

The majority of erotica writers I have encountered, as well as the editors and publishers, have been female, and that has made it so much more interesting and stimulating for me.  The female POV (Point-of-View) is so much more sensual to me than the male, and female writers seem to have less hang-ups when describing the physical and emotional states of their characters in their tales than males writers do.  Males tend to approach erotica from the physical gratification POV, while females seem to focus more on the need and how it is satisfied.

Disagree?  Share your POV by leaving a comment below.

I look forward to sharing with you all for a long time to come.
