Overview

erotica

There are hundreds of erotic books out there of every size, shape, and predilection. To try to read through them and “review” them would be ludicrous, even if we thought our personal taste in erotica was universal (which we don’t). So these are just a few books that our staff or patient, have read, used, and enjoyed:

Lust: Erotic Fantasies for Women

Edited by Violet Blue 

These are fun short stories of 3-5 pages which are extremely explicit, some explore light BDSM with some tying up, playful role playing, etc. This is a great basic book of women’s porn.

Best Women’s Erotica ‘12

Edited by Violet Blue

Generally, the stories run about 4-8 pages and run the gamut of tame to more kinky with two-on-one sex, lesbian sex, and some light BDSM. Strikingly, this collection of erotic short stories is quite well written and could even be considered literature.

Wild, Wicked and Wanton

By Jaci Burton 

This is a novel about three girlfriends (and any number of guys) with a kind of a Sex and the City undertone and explicit sex scenes. This is not a collection of short stories so there is some character development for those of you who want to know who is having sex! The writing of the novel is mediocre but you’re not reading this as great fiction.

The Pillow Boy of the Lady Onogoro

By Alison Fell

This story set in feudal Japan, tells the story of a concubine who hires a stable boy to whisper erotic stories from behind a screen while she entertains her master, a samurai general.

Fifty Shades of Grey

By E.L. James

It is hard to leave the house without hearing about Fifty Shades of Grey, and the sex scenes are hot! However, the story and the writing may not appeal to everyone. This book is not known for its imaginative plot but some may enjoy it just for sheer escapism and its inclusion of light BDSM. It can be a good introduction to those ideas if you have never thought about them.
