This may sound a bit strange since
most of us think of pictures and video when it comes to adult
entertainment, but we still think that some of the best erotica on the
Internet is found in erotic literature. Reading a really well
written piece of erotica gives you the ability to put yourself mentally
in the scene -- to actually participate and be a part of the
experience. A good author pulls the reader into the story,
painting images in the reader's mind that can be more vivid and exciting
than anything you could ever put in a picture or video.
We've compiled some great resources that
we've found on the Internet that we think you'll enjoy checking out.
