As writers, we all need motivation for what we do. We need to be aware of that motivation if we want to achieve our goals. Is it all about escapism? Do we simply create literature that stimulates our libido and gives us wet dreams? Or do we want more – to reflect the reality of today’s bedrooms, or to expose the hypocrisy of conservative forces? All noble aspirations. Or are we fighting for a world where feminism reaches into the bedroom and people’s sexuality reflects their liberation? Do we want to show a new image of women, free from the stereotypes of the last century, and project a new ideal of how to treat each other?
So what does it mean to write erotic fiction today? Is it simply to titillate the reader, or is it something more complicated? One way to approach this question is to think about the evolution of sexual desire in modern society. Throughout history, sex has been a taboo subject, discussed in private or not at all. But as society has become more open and accepting of different lifestyles and sexual preferences, the way we talk about sex has changed. We now have more freedom to explore our sexuality and express our desires.
Erotic fiction is one way to participate in this discussion and bring our desires and fantasies to life. It allows us to explore what we find sexy, push our boundaries, and inspire others to do the same. By writing erotic fiction, we can challenge cultural norms, address social issues, and present a more inclusive and diverse view of sexuality. We can explore the nuances of relationships and the psychology behind sexual attraction. We can create a world where people are not judged by their desires, but celebrated for them.
At the same time, we must consider the influence of pornography, which often reinforces negative and harmful stereotypes about sexuality. Erotic fiction can counter this influence by offering an alternative, more nuanced and inclusive view of sexuality. They can challenge the male point of view and offer female readers erotica written by and for them. It can also address different sexual preferences and orientations and challenge the prevailing notion of what is considered “normal” or desirable.
Writing erotica today is not just about arousing the reader. Rather, it can be a powerful tool for promoting social change, challenging cultural norms, and presenting a broader view of sexuality. By expressing our desires and fantasies in writing, we can create a more diverse and accepting world where people are not judged for their sexuality, but celebrated for their sexuality. As writers, we have a responsibility to use our voices to create a better future where our sexuality is not a source of shame or embarrassment, but a source of joy and encouragement. So let’s continue to write erotic books that challenge the norm and help us explore our sexuality in new and exciting ways.
