    I've always found erotic stories interesting, I used to love reading some of the stories they put in old Playboy magazine and Penthouse. Something about reading and being able to visualize the story has always been more of a turn on than just watching porn.

    I've known quite a few women into erotic novels, and I've always wanted to find one who would want to roleplay one out. I guess I wonder how to actually approach the issue, my last girlfriend was so awkward about even discussing it, it kind of made me uncomfortable with bringing it up in the future.

    Thank you for your honesty, haha. (It doesn't have to be a Fabio-cover type novel by the way)

    Yeah I've found in person it can tend to break down into laughing fits, doing it online is a bit easier.

    I've known a lot of people that were into erotic stories...but it's not my thing. It never did much for me, although occasionally it's interesting. Role playing? No, it's fine sometimes under certain situations but it's just not for me.

    Reading is better than porn - but then again porn is rather boring.[/QUOTE]

    yes some of it is very boring. especially all the fake screaming and stupid faces they make in it any more male and female both. i get into some of hubby's old porn stashes he has back in the day now and then, his 8 MM & super 8 MM movies and also his old school house type movie projector with the big metal movie reels, i think they are called 16 mm or something? [ not sure.] any way when I'm in the mood for real good porn i see the good old days when porn was porn at its best. it seems much more real than this fake stuff they call porn now days. they had all sorts of women as well as men in them with much better story lines than this crap today, also way more passion in them than just a quick screw and do. and all were neat even in all their nudity they were neat looking actors back then. todays porn has sloppy fat hoggish looking Michelin tire women in them, or skeleton bones sticking out all over type women in them [ and I'm not referring to a cock as bones here either by the way ] ALSO i have seen guys in them with dirty finger nails and body's that aren't in good shape at all. they look like a bunch of scrudders or what ever. no thank at all . ill take the old porn over this modern stuff any day.. i am saying here that all porn is like this, but a lot Ive seen here recently has been. how ever its still a multi billion dollar industry so some one some place must like it. but I'm not one of them.

    I've noticed that too! Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but the person you're with has to know that you're laughing at the role playing situation and not at them! I'd love to try a Tarzan/Jane kind of roleplaying if I could keep from laughing fits though - mainly because I just love the idea of a sexy guy in a loincloth and drum beats in the background - wow!

    I like some erotic stories and not others. But I suppose that'd be true for anyone (well, those who like erotic stories at all that is!) There are entire categories of supposed erotic stories I won't read at all, and other categories that just don't do anything for me.

    I sometimes look at Literotica, and the categories I generally read on there are Erotic Couplings, Romance (it's not like Harlequin Romances - thankfully!!!), Interracial Love, Group Sex and Loving Wives.

    I WILL NOT READ: Incest/Taboo (will make a possible exception if it's cousins, but absolutely NOT parent/child! EWWWWW!!!!!!!), or Non-Consent/Reluctance (Rape is NOT EROTIC!!!) I also avoid Mind Control - that gives me a rather "ewww" response as well.

    Doesn't do anything for me: BDSM (for the most part; I'm not into it, but I have no objections to it per se), Lesbian Sex (since I'm a straight woman! I will read Gay Male, though! But again, I have no objections to lesbian erotic stories being there, for people who are into that).

    There are other categories on Literotica as well. I recently read a really well-written story over there in the "Non-Human" category. (And no it's not about bestiality! Non-human is stuff like vampires and fantasy creatures - the story I liked was about a man who could change into a shark and then back into a man. When he is having sex with the woman in the story, he is a man rather than a shark). Vampires could also be in the Erotic Horror category, which I tend not to read because I'm afraid it might be too gross for me!

    I also don't like stories where the man calls the woman names while they are having sex, like calling her a "dirty slut" and stuff like that. Instant turn-off for me. :mad: One otherwise good story (about an exceptionally well endowed man, too - I tend to look for those kinds of stories!) was ruined by him calling her a dirty slut and all that.

    I've also thought a bit about writing erotic stories myself. I've read stories over on Literotica that I thought, "I can write better than that"! :biggrin1: I think most of mine would be over on the Erotic Couplings category, but one or two might be Group Sex and one may even be BDSM (that I say I'm "not into"! Oh well...) I have to get the "dirty talk" down though - I'm not into that (or any kind of talking during sex; not that I find it offensive - except for the "dirty slut" and namecalling like that - but more that I find it a distraction!)

    I sometimes enjoy erotica and have often downloaded stories from literotica.com; but I have no interest in role play. My feeling is that if I have to dress up like someone else or pretend to be someone else to interest a man or keep him interested than there is something else lacking in the relationship. It's all I can do most days to just be me. I can't be bothered being someone else too. :cool:

    I like reading erotica...mostly historical romance from authors like Sylvia Day or Cheryl Holt, etc. I do like some modern writers like Emma Holly. And, yes. I would dress up and role play if he wanted to. I can barely get him into those small boy shorts for men, so I know there is no dressing him up and/or role playing on our horizon.
