Group sex is one of the things I come back to again and again as an erotica writer and reader. First, I wanted to share a few of my favorite group sex moments in erotica as a reader. These are group sex scenes that I read early in my coming into consciousness about being kinky and they shaped my fantasies and kinks in ways that feel very clear to me. I have set group sex in other places, for the most part. A couple of the stories mentioned above also include that dynamic.
Erotic podcasts aimed at a female audience are being downloaded in record numbers. Erotica has seriously moved on since the days of lady novelists dictating tales of ripped bodices from their chaises longues. Now women have a new secret thrill — X-rated podcasts. You can listen at the gym, or on the bus, and provided you keep the volume to a sensible level, nobody will be any the wiser.
Erotic literature comprises fictional and factual stories and accounts of eros — passionate, romantic or sexual relationships — intended to arouse similar feelings in readers,  in contrast to erotica , which focusses more specifically on sexual feelings. Erotic literature can take the form of novels, short stories, poetry , true-life memoirs , and sex manuals. A common feature of the genre is sexual fantasies on such themes as prostitution , orgies , sadomasochism , and many other taboo subjects and fetishes , which may or may not be expressed in explicit language. Much erotic literature features erotic art , illustrating the text. Despite cultural disapproval of such material, circulation of erotic literature was not seen as a major problem before the invention of printing, as the costs of producing individual manuscripts limited distribution to a very small group of literate readers.
