All too often, erotica evokes references to Fifty Shades of Grey. While this may be enough for some, for others, it leaves much to be desired. Fortunately, there is a whole wide world of erotica to appeal to whatever idea, fantasy, or kink you’d like to explore. And if the erotica you want doesn’t yet exist, you can always create it yourself! You can read, write, or listen to erotica. You can even draw it out in a graphic novel. The possibilities go on and on.
