Erotic Fiction Genre



Erotic fiction is the name provided to the fiction that handles sexual themes or sexual performance. This type of literature is more serious than the fiction seen in Adult magazines. It sometimes includes elements of social criticism and satire.

The government and other religious authorities have banned the works that included social criticism and satire elements. During the medieval period an Italian author by the name of Giovanni Boccaccio had created the book called The Decameron, which provides tales of the lechery monks and seduction of nuns at the convents. This book was banned in many countries for its content according to the authorities of the U.S.A and U.K.

In the 16th century, a French author by the name of Marguerite De Navarre was notable for her book called “The Heptameron”. This book is a collection of 72 short stories written in French. The Heptameron was published in 1558. This book is known to be an inspiration of the Italian book called The Decameron. Pietro Aretino wrote a dialogue on which he described the sexual lives of nuns, wives and prostitutes and he compared them. A unique piece of work during this time was the book called “Sodom, or the Quintessence of Debauchery”. This work was created by the English writer by the name of John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester.

Nowadays the culture on the current generations has changed and we are more open-minded than we ever were. We want to explore more our desires, so the writers of this genre can be more open at the time of talking of sensitive topics.

Another advantage nowadays is that with the use of the internet you can purchase erotic fiction books at private libraries or online bookstores. So leave your shame behind and dive into his emerging culture.
