All I can say is wow… This takes BALLS!!!
This will most likely piss a lot of erotica authors off. If so, all I can say is…. Good!!
It’s no great reach to point out that there is an awful lot of erotica out there that is Not That Good. And a lot of it just plain sucks.
Why is this so? Well, as a threshold problem, writing well is not easy. But erotica carries with it some unique qualities that affect both how it is created and how it is consumed. There is really no other genre in which bad writing can thrive the way it does in erotica.
This is because of the simple reason that people read erotica not just to be entertained but also to be aroused. Readers of erotica will put up with an amazing level of bad writing as long as the story hits one of their fetishes effectively. Glaring typos, stereotypical characters, hackneyed dialogue, and preposterous premises can be blithely excused just as long as the sex gets their juices flowing.
