There is crap sci-fi, there are crap dictionaries, crap knows no limits Crap is an SUBJECTIVE opinion. Some people say my novels are crap, and others disagree with them. Neither of them is wrong.

In other words, Just because you do not like calling it "crap" does not mean it is not accurate for me. That is the nature of subjective topics like this.

While there is a great deal of "crap" in the erotica market, arguably more than in any other genre (and if you don't read the genre, you cannot know how much), that has nothing to do with the genre as a whole; there are beautiful and meaningful works in it, as well as light-hearted entertainment, just like any other genre.
Do not currently read it. As with every other man, I have read, watched,etc my share of porn, erotica and romance. I have read horror, and gore, watched it etc.I've played the video games and so on. So yes, I know a bit about it. It is just not something I want to partake in anymore.

I would love to have erotica neatly separated out and well-tagged, so that I could *find it* when I'm looking for it, so that the descriptions tell me enough of what's in and out so I know whether I'd like to buy it. As it is, I cope with reading a lot of free sample previews and building my own lists of authors-similar-to-authors-I-like. (And, sigh, getting a lot of freebies during promos, and reading three chapters and giving up because this book or that one is *so* not to my tastes.)
Yep, I agree. I wish it was separated out better so I could avoid what I do not want, just as much as you say you want it separated so you can find what you want. You are making the same point I am.
