Have you ever read an erotic novel that you've enjoyed and if so which.

ReHave you never read DH Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover?

No, but that was a book that was the first escape censorship back in 1960. but that I presume would be tame compared to what is called tittilating erotic stuff they churn out today.jmb

Not to my knowledge. I'd much rather be the erotic story with SWMBO. ;)

There are erotic passages in lots of books. There's even an erotic paragraph in Stardust which is a fairy tale of sorts.


“Just erotic. Nothing kinky. It's the difference between using a feather and using a chicken.”
― Terry Pratchett, Eric

One of the most erotic passages I ever read in a book was in "Barefoot in the Head" The problem was, that the book is very cleverly written as if you are gradually getting stoned and you have to read into it to aclimatise and get used to the language. So when I got home and tried to re-read it in bed, it didn't make much sense.

Anything by Ann Rice or Poppy Z Brite!

I also have a collection of Hentai Manga (Erotic Comics from Japan). My favourites being "Fake" and "Gravitation" because they actually have decent plots and bits that aren't sexy, just funny!

I don't see the point in erotica unless you can care about the characters.
I think it's a female thing.

It's awful. Everything by Lawrence is tediously awful.
We were forced to read him at School.

It's not actually that tame, it's just AWFUL!

This is a good place to start if you think this is the sort of thing you will like, but it is most definitely NSFW.


magazine recommendations and excerpts

I quite liked Sons and Lovers - although I found the setting a bit depressing.

So? Let me get this right/ What you are telling us, mary, that this book is Not Suitable For Women, have I got that right? If so, and I am assuming that you have read it, what does that say about you? Are you telling us, that you are not really mary, and that you are really some sort of troll dressed up to look like a mary? Have I got this right? nananananananananananana

I know!!!


You are Scholar and I claim my reward!nananana

Note to scholar: Sorry mate, I don't really mean it. You are not mary, are you?




Actually, come to think of it, if you are not she, but she is you, then that makes you, she, and if you are she.............GIRON.....Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
:D


marymary100 - 10-8-2012 at 08:34

Work - Leigh. That other deadly "W" word.


LSemmens - 11-8-2012 at 13:46

I thort that was a four letter werd and one that should definitely be part of the swear filter. I should moderate you, but,,,,, I forgot how. So, put your penny into the swear jar and we'll call it quits, otherwise I'll have to set Giron onto you. waggyfingerwaggyfingerwaggyfingerwaggyfinger:D

I suppose I might have enjoyed the occasional smutty story in a porn mag when I was a lad, but I don't think that counts as literature.

So no.

I'd rather be in it or watch it than read about it.


delanti - 11-8-2012 at 17:32

Back in my High School years, I read Gods Little Acre. It was supposed to be quite racy at the time but I don't remember much about it so I guess it left little impression on me.waveysmiley

Of course playboy is literature, Hamsterjam, Just ask Mary.
