I started thinking about the word "erotic" and what it means to me....I see a lot of pictures for my blog, some are pornographic and some are erotic. I started thinking about what separates the two...
For me something that is erotic ...hints at sexuality. It is the picture of an intense kiss or a woman unzipping her gown to reveal that there is nothing underneath her dress, at least that is what your imagination will tell you...but you won't actually SEE her naked. To me erotic is something that draws you in and makes you want to see, or know more. Erotic is the feeling of being teased...just enough to make your pussy wet or cock hard.
Pornographic is more hard core. Often there is no mystery...its out in the open SEX. To me pornography isn't bad, it simply is what it is. Sometimes you want a taste, sometimes you want the whole cookie and pornography is definitely the whole cookie! I think there is room for both. Sometimes I like the gentle teasing that comes with erotica...either in book or picture form. And, sometimes I just want hot lusty sex...usually in some visual medium, either a picture or video. I don't make any apologies for liking pornography. Its sexy to see other people fucking. It makes my pussy wet and makes me crave a cock between my thighs!
I have a friend that is completely against pornography in any form, but she'll read a romance novel and drool over the sexy sections. I say, if that is what you are comfortable with, then so be it. We all have personal boundaries. However, my boundary happens to include porn! I have seen other people having sex, I've let other people watch me have sex. I've watched porn and tried to mimic what the other people were doing with my partner...all of it has been fun.
Now, is there social issues that come from pornography...of course. But, you can't suppress sexuality. Sexuality will find a way, because its a basic human need. However, I'm not going to focus on that, because there are enough people in the world telling you how bad pornography is...I think you've heard the argument enough times already.
Back to erotic...to me there is room for erotica in every sex life. There is room for an appreciation for art and the human form. For the curves of a woman to the jutting angles of a man. Erotic allows you to finish the moment in your mind....the zipper coming down and the dress falling off. The towel dropping exposing the extent of his excitement...the wetness that is just barely hidden by a pair of panties. Erotica can be an amazing addition to your sex life, either as a couple or individually. It can cause delicious fantasies that transport you to realms of ecstacy.
So tonight, pick up a sexy book, look at the pics in my blog...or find some of your own. But, take a moment to find out what is erotic to you!
