how did you discover erotica ?Page 2 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
There are so many ways to explore erotica..
Now that I have discovered it
I don't think I could go back to the silly little romance novel thing
Kama sutra is what started me on erotica...
There are so many more faucets to explore..
And I'll enjoy every second of it

I went to a private, British, all girls, convent school in Cyprus....a few of my girls snuck into the library at the Boys academy across the road...and we found this book called Kama Sutra....we snuck it out and read it throughout the whole year...it was great.

The girl across the street's Dad used to have Playboy she would show me probably when I was around 10. Then later I found the nudie mags my brother had hidden under his mattress.

Yep...Lol... I was given Kama Sutra...I was determined to get women to want to do those things... And have learned that there is much sensual persuasion to get most to even start.

Tayven,

But alot of it is there. In fact, I think that's when I really started to read books on a regular basis, at 14

Back in the old days there wasn't an awful lot of stuff around in mainstream America for a kid to be exposed to! Not like today! Why just the other day The Victoria's Secret models were on National Television, strutting their stuff right there in America's living room! Now don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining! (Although I'd rather look at men thank you very much).
Why when I was a young girl, about the most exciting stuff was in the JCPenny catalog. Remember when it would come in the mail? And you'd rush to grab it and mark all the Christmas presents you wanted in the back? And then, if you were feeling daring and brave, you'd turn to the underware section in the middle of the catalog and check out all the men and women. And you'd look at their "stuff" and try to imagine what it looked like underneath the "wares"?
Now THAT took some imagination. Not like today, where it's all out there to feast on!
sigh.....makes you almost nastolgic....

I was playing outside with my brothers and my sister. All of them are older than me, with the exception of one who is my age. Someone's wife must have thrown a bunch of nudie mags out the windows and my brothers had snuck off at some point, looking for "treasure". lmfao. I would say that they found it. My sister and I got our first glimpse of naked people, well we all got a first glimpse, in all kinds of positions. I must have been about 6 and my sister was 9 and she was the eldest out of the whole crew of 5.

I was curious as hell after that cuz I didn't know what the fek I was looking at. It wasn't as disturbing as finding out that babies didn't come from heaven and Santa Claus doesn't exist.

I think we have to first make a distinction between erotica, porn and the nasty hard core porn.

When I was younger, the magazines broke down to

-- Playboy = erotica
-- Penthouse = erotica bordering on porn
-- Hustler = Porn bordering on hard core porn
-- Hustler's "barely legal" = OMG Porn with a forbidden flavor
-- Stuff in our grumman rep's desk


There is even a continuum between erotica and porn with strip clubs and the individual dancers.

So, to answer the OPs question, I forget exactly what age I was but I happened to find a stash of assorted mags neatly bundled on the curb in front of someone's house. I guess I was in my early teens or so (mid 1970's).

Things ratcheted up when I worked for the Navy in the early 80's. One of the Grumman reps had a stash of really hard core porn in his desk. One of the planes they produced was known as the "Intruder". The guy had covers from "The Mighty Intruder" Magazine over the covers of the nastiest porn I had seen.

I was taught by the many women in my life that took the time to educate me in such a way as to understand what erotica was for them, compared to what it was for men, and how to interchange the both of them.......

If you are around sensual, sexual people of the opposite sex, they have a tendency to mentor you if they believe you are worthy of that, or find you attractive and interesting enough to open up that wonderful world of sharing.

cd..........

Hmmm...when I was 12, I believe it was some wet T-shirts in an auto-racing movie (that was rated PG). Then, Jaqueline Bisset's nips poking out through that wet T in The Deep.

Then, at age 13, a male friend popped in his dad's porno. I was shocked, nauseated (couldn't believe this chick was licking this dude's balls while he pummeled this other girl doggie-style, and couldn't believe how much white goo spurted out when he came, from 3 feet away, on the doggie girl's butt, then into the mouth and savoring toungue of the other chick who was down servicing his undercarriage), but, for days, became strangely mentally fixated...

Age 14: My parents allowed me to see my first R-rated movie--10 with Bo Derek. Such an exquisite athletic specimen. Her jugs rising and falling in slow mo in that legendary yellow one-piece blew my mind. Anxious as hell about sex, I quickly laughed my ass off when I saw what Dudley Moore, seemingly more nervous than I was, went through trying to complete the deed with her ("It's stuck" "Oh, it's alright--don't worry, darling" "THE RECORD!--it's stuck!").

Fast-forward to age 18: Snuck issues of Playboy, Penhouse, then harder-core skin mags like Cheri and Club into my bedroom closet. My mom found them sure enough.

When I moved out of my parents' place, started watching porn on VHS.

I agree, it was harder to access such materials 20+ years ago. But I'm sure it's still hard to access the real thing, for any generation.

This thought popped up in my head whilst in the shower:


You have to be careful of your thoughts in the shower...

Many guys have slipped and got hurt, after making a mess on the shower floor.

I can hardly remember, but I believe it must have been in books. It's amazing what a kid who's an excellent reader can find. *chuckle* Beyond that, I found a copy of "The Joy of Sex" pretty early on.

Not erotica per se...... I have to google the name of it, but for me it was a book by Judy Blume IIRC.

I first found out and read it in Penthouse way back when, but I didn’t truly “discover” erotica until I wrote it! Boy was that learning experience if you're truly writing of your own imagination!

Boy is your girlfriend a lucky lady.

I discovered erotica from a Playboy in my dad's room during 'visitation' when I was about 8 or 9. THought the women's bodies were beautiful and wondered if I'd look like that someday lol. Some of the letters were pretty funny - didn't understand them, it seemed like they were speaking a foreign language.

My first experience with "erotica"?

Judy Blume's "Forever".


Does anyone remember reading that at 10 or 11?
