There has always been erotica and always will be. As anyone who works in advertizing would tell you, "Sex Sells." Why else would they have attractive models shown wearing or using a given product. I mean take Progressive Insurance as an example. The character of Flo is portrayed by an attractive woman. If it were a homely or plain looking woman who played her we'd be less likely to show interest in what she's selling. And sex has always been a motivator in literature. The Trogan War started after Helen of Troy was enticed away from her husband by Paris as an example. Some of the stories in The Decameron have sex in them. The Middle Ages may have been known for its piety but people still had the same desires even then for a story with some sexual content. Granted they didn't go overboard in describing the acts, but between having grown up in tiny cottages where there were no separate bedrooms and seeing farm animals doing what nature intends they already had a good idea of basic sex education I imagine. We're far more reserved today than our ancestors probably were.
