      I prefer Erotica as well.  More detail and the writer is not shy with the usage of words, movements, etc.. It definitely helps with you creating a vivid picture in your mind.

    I've never even seen an "erotica" book or an "old romance" book.  Guess I'm reading the wrong books.   lol

      Lisa HW, they are really good! you have to get one. Barnes and Noble should have a section. If you are comfortable going to an Adult store you may be able to find them there, that is where I used to get mine.

    On the contrary, erotica is all so blunt, leaving nothing to imagination.

    I tend to prefer romance over erotica. Romance has a little more of a storyline. I also like the fact that it hints at things (most times) and then fades to black. In erotica you see everything which i guess is good for some, but not for me. Let me exercise my rights as a reader and use my imagination to fill in the blanks.

    I think I like both equally. Romance does have more of an actual story while erotica is mostly sex, sex, sex...not that that is always a bad thing tongue

      Thank you Zaiden Jace. I feel the same way. I do like both but I prefer the sex, sex, sex part of the stories... LOL

    I have to agree that the old romance novels were sort of predictable and kind of dull. After reading a few, they all started to sound the same. I decided to try my hand at erotica, but it seems the regular thing doesn't click with me. My book kept veering into the odd and it stayed there! But it was fun to write.

    I have been thinking about trying my hand at a little erotica.  The unusual sounds like fun to me and who doesn't like the sex, sex, handcuffs, sex - oops did I type that out loud - that was supposed to stay in my head.
