Erotic Novels

Seriously, I've never read one before. I think it's mainly because there isn't enough erotic novel writers around.

Anyone have any recommendations for this genre?

Darrell Bains & Jeanine Berry have co-authored some interesting SciFi/Errotica books - The Sex Gate series. More Scifi than Erotica but enough of the latter to offend some. If you've read any of Jack Chalker's books, Darrell's are not quite that "wierd" but he's the closest to Jack that I've read. Personally I much prefer Darrell's work and he is prolific & easily found in ebook format.

Check out the late 1800's book (???) "Fanny Hill". It was a lot more than I expected. (I didn't finish it.....) It's among the free stuff around.

Thanks guys. I was checking your recommendations... And just found out how powerful Amazon really is. The books that you recommended... were $3-$4USD. Although Amazon advertise convenience, It just struck me that if I had whispernet here in Canada, I would have ordered it and could very well be reading the books by now. Anyways, i'm going to now check for the free version.
I'll definitely be on a lookout for The Sex Gate as well.

edit: found both, Thanks.

I've uploaded Cleland's Fanny Hill some months ago.
Also Sacher-Masoch's Venus in Furs.

And, of course, Lady Chatterly's Lover would rank in there somewhere.

When I was doing a search on Mobipocket site under "Romance" I was surprised at the content it displayed. Pretty saucy material there. There is also a catagory on their menu for Erotica. Same on Fictionwise, and probably all eBook sites I should imagine.

You're about 150 years out - it was published in 1748.

I think most modern readers would find it more amusing than erotic.

... perhaps you have never heard of Harlequin?

a quote from wikipedia
...
the company publishes approximately 120 new titles each month in 26 different languages in 109 international markets on six continents. These books are written by over 1,300 authors worldwide, offering readers a broad range of fiction from romance to psychological thrillers to relationship novels. With 131 million books sold in 2006
...

Here is their Erotic Fiction book e-directory
http://www.eharlequin.com/store.html?vcid=55
There you can read excerpts to see if the romances are erotic enough. Harlequin has a reputation for publishing very "tame" romances/erotic books.

They sell Harlequin e-books on Sony Connect store.

I've seen some there that "saucy" doesn't even approach as an adequate description for the erotica section, but interesting.

He clicked on the thread.
"Surely I shouldn't be able to get a wireless connection out here at sea on my pirate ship, but here I am...surfing the MobileRead forums on my hand-carved laptop that I carved myself with my rough, forceful - yet gentle - hands," said Spooky69, captain of the SS Barbarossa. "What would my dead wife say if she knew about this?"
"Your dead wife isn't here," said my sultry, sexually attractive female poop deck commander Ms. Livingstone, "But I am."
"I'm aware of the laws of only being able to exist in one place as a living person and not being able to exist in a place at all if you are dead (with the understanding that this is all in reference to the conscious, human, Earth-bound mind only), but this damn oceanic map that I was also focusing on just won't decipher itself with the compass that I am using in the 1800s."
"I think what you need, kind Captain, is a sextant."
"I already have one of those, too, and it's extremely useful, but I have needs that extend far beyond the walls of describable words and feelings...emotional needs that allow me to emphasize the desirable aspects of male sexual desire without questioning all the awful, immoral things that many women do in order to stimulate themselves sensually."
"Oh, Captain!" Hexandra Livingstone exclaimed, "What would my husband, who attends to my intellectual needs but hasn't adequate concern for the rebellious tendencies of my female treasure chest, say?"
"Hexandra..." Spooky69 said plainly, "I don't give a damn what your husband, or even the boringly boring people at your work, think about my desires...I...I...I...I...I...I...I must satisfy you right now...sexually."
Then my big tall mast flapped her sails around a little bit. I mean, it wasn't really nothing to write home about and then wait until you actually got home and then hand over what you wrote in person, but, I mean, it was okay. I mean, I think I was pretty good here, but she really just kind of laid there and made quiet noises and obviously wasn't that into it. I mean, that's fine, but I'd had my eye on this chick for a while and I guess I was expecting her to be a little better in bed...pirate ship straw bed over ropes.

The End

erotic novel

Hi, on www.memoware.com there is a novel, O+F, that has been downloaded more than any other but one in the romance category. I wrote it. Every good novelist has to deal with the biggies: love, sex, death, and evil sooner or later. O+F was my shot at sex and the overlapping borders it has with love. It's free in six different download formats. John Moncure Wetterau
