So I'm an amateur...


I posted an erotic story in the Magazine and got 2 "so-so"s and 4 negative votes. I suppose that my erotic writing techniques need some work, huh?
Mind you, I consider there to be a distinct difference between writing erotica and writing porn. There's little difference between writing a pornographic article or story and writing a pornographic screenplay (except most of the dirty stories here would never make it as mainstream porn; they'd require far too much budget).
Erotica, by comparison, is teasing, seductive, almost flowery in how it expresses its characters' emotions and passions. Good erotica never need even mention the word "fuck" to be effective, and it should use it judiciously if it does so. If you needed a visual example of the difference between the two, rent any Wicked Pictures movie, particularly one starring Jenna or Devinn Lane, and then compare it to something from Red Light District. One is not necessarily better than the other, but you should be able to tell the difference outright.
I know that most of the members here reading the erotic story section are men looking for stimulation, and have absolutely no interest in reading a tawdry romance novel. (Those can be just as bad as Penthouse, just so you know!) I just wanted to let the audience know what I was shooting for, figuratively. We'll see how the next one goes; I may just post it in my blog and see what kind of response I get.
