    I have thought of writing erotica, but get shy at the thought that people will read it, which of course is crazy, because people read my stuff all the time lol. However a good story is a good story no matter what the genre right?

    I think your right though, once you start writing and just go with it, it's just like writing anything else in that respect, I suppose. Plus there is a market for it so, maybe I should give it a go. smile

      The market at the moment is really good for it but im more of a thriller, horror, supspence writer so writng something like erotica is totally new to me although i wrote a hub earlier based on a wierd dream that i had last night that touches on erotic in a way, its called They never knew i was there at first.

      if you give it ago i will deffinatly read it if its posted on here smile

    Thats a nice idea, but I think it would get flagged on here pretty quickly lol. Still I might attempt it on nanowrimo this year, it might even get picked up by a publisher. (A girl can dream can't she....) smile

    I am an erotic writer. At first I kinda struggled a bit I as I was not aware there was a difference between erotica and porn so yes, there is a way to write erotica and still remain tasteful.

    Based on my research, erotica is a romance story with full plot development and good character development. This romance has graphic/explicit sexual content yet very tastefully done. Porn does not have to be a developed story and the characters just play a sexual role, there isn't necessarily a real story behind the characters themselves.

    i must admit,... ive always toyed with the idea of writing erotica,... i supose if one wants to write in a particular genre then maybe you should read some examples to get a feel for it,....... on the other hand what you read might influence the way you write,..... so just go for it,...... i'd say make 4-6 attempts then read some other examples and compare your work to that,............ but i would deffinately do my own thing before being possibly influenced by anything else................... thats how i tend to attack everything.

      I don't agree. I say do your research. Read what you can get your hands on, practice your ownwriting style but stay within what is in demand.

      There are different styles of erotica which ranges from soft core to hard core.

      When a client asks for spicy romance you can almost be assured they want softcore but you must research your market to know what is in demand or where to sell hard core, medium or soft.

        from your pov what you say makes great sense,.... as for me, i write because i like to write,... i'll never make more than soda money at it..... and thats kinda liberating,... i can write what i want.

          From that point of view there is no such things as a good or bad story.

            well,... yea,.... from the writers pov,... sure,.... but once you lay it out for the world to look at,... weather that being yor friends reading it, or publishing it some place like on HP,..... then more points of view come into play.

              That was kind of my point.  OP was asking about how to do a "good' job.  That is, taking into account other opinions of other people, not just her own enjoyment.

    In the end erotic writing is writing. It requires all the things other types of writing requires. Story, style, technical skill, characters and an awareness of the market.  And not all erotica is romance.

    I would not expect erotica to be an easier sale either to a publisher or direct to reader.  The genre is hot, but so is the competition.

      agreed

      I also agree. You have to be unique in your story development as well. Cross genre eroticas are probably in higher demand since they make the stories a bit more interesting than just plain romance. What I mean is mixing paranormal with erotica, fantacy, dark fiction vampire and horror makes the stories richer. As I said, it takes research to find out what is in demand.
