    What is the difference between an EROTICA, PORN and an ADULT book. Which one do you prefer ?

    'Adult' is a general term. It can imply sex, violence, scary stuff or just that which would be totally over the heads of most children.
    Porn is something that has merely a prurient value, like a marital aid.
    Erotica would be something that could be considered art but has a sexually arousing nature.

      In which category do you rate 'LOLITA'

        Lolita would be mild erotica. Titilating, perhaps, but I didnt find it particularly erotic.

          You have added another category to three which I had mentioned
          Titilating

    Adult = not intended for children, for whatever reason

    Erotica implies an element of good taste and artistry, porn implies bad taste and lack of artistry.

    I prefer a good adult book such as Possession by AS Byatt
