Erotica vs. Pornography

If you knew that you were going to be isolated for a length of time somewhere and would be unable to have sex with anybody, what would you prefer to have to help you with your sexual frustation? (You can only choose one option. Erotica is sexually themed literature.)
As a man, I'd like some pornographic videos of my own choosing.

As a man, I'd like some erotica which covers themes that I enjoy.

As a man, I'd rather just not have anything like that around. I'd take a cold shower whenever I felt the need.

Where are the toys???? No toys????

I decided to omit toys on purpose. Isn't it true that some girls have improvised toys from phallic-shaped objects when they didn't have or couldn't get a proper dildo?

Anais Nin is THE best erotica that I've read. Y'all should check it out!

I've heard of this author before, but haven't read yet.

I also decided to omit from my poll options for people who would prefer to just use their own past memories or imagination to stimulate themselves with.

Using your imagination comes with erotica. I honestly like reading an erotic story more than sitting alone watching porn. When I'm watching a porno, I am limited to the people in the film, but when I am reading, I put the faces to the characters which makes everything seem more real. I can imagine that its "John Doe," or whoever I want doing the things the story talks about to me. I've never really watched that much porn, but from just what I've seen, I would definitely chose me some better movies and my opinion may be altered, lol.

vengeur replies on 5/21/2006 11:24 pm:
I think that there a few well-produced porno movies that could possibly fit your idea of what makes a good story. As for erotica, well, now you've given me ideas about imagining several AdultFriendFinder women as characters in the stories I might be reading soon - yourself included!

Erotica for me, because i may not have somewhere with the same region setting as my video, and having some erotica handy in my hands is much better as it's more portable and practical.

I failed to consider the DVD region issue. My DVD player is region-free, but I sometimes forget that most other players are not.

Erotica for me. If it is good, the images in my mind beat whatever photographs or video is available. Besides, Erotica usually has more romance than pornography and that is really nice aspect of sexuality.

vengeur replies on 5/25/2006 6:08 pm:
I've not yet read any erotica that contains romance. Well, at least I don't think I have.

I appreciate that Vengeur...I also wish it wasn't just your imagination that you were using me in. Unfortunately, that's the best I can get right now, damn the distance! lol.

vengeur replies on 5/26/2006 5:49 am:
Damn the distance - my thoughts exactly!

I'd rather not have any erotic, porn, etc, if isolated. Why torture myself even more? If I have to pleasure myself, the imagination is the way I go. If I have to go without, might as well go without any erotic stimulation as well. It's all or nothing with me, lol.

vengeur replies on 5/28/2006 1:49 pm:
Well, since the imagination is the way you go, I can't help but wonder who and what you would imagine!

Imagination is a wonderful thing! The who shall remain nameless, but suffice it to say, the act would involve more than one, two, or three males. Seems, as I've aged, I require more men in my fantasies. Fantasizing about sex with one man, just doesn't get me off anymore, lol.

vengeur replies on 5/29/2006 4:56 am:
So are we talking about gang bang fantasies then? LOL
