    Anyone know any sites or companies which pay for publishing xxx stories? I get a lot of other stuff from google.

    I'd say try a sex shop in the Erotica section, you just need to look at who publishes the books and give them a call and ask them if they are interested in whatever you are writing.

    There are some really good free online erotica sites. One I have found to be most consistent is Literotica.com. Read some of these and consider posting a few of your stories. You get feedback from the members and though I haven’t been an active participant on this site, my intuition says the critiques you get will be helpful in refining your writing.

    Also, I know that a few of the people who have uploaded to this site have won “Golden Clitorides” awards and have gone on to be published erotic authors.

    Regarding the erotic industry -- as a whole it is moving towards ebooks, instead of print. See Fictionwise.com under Erotica and identify who is publishing what to find out who to approach with your work. You might also want to check out www.newconceptspublishing,com. They post stories and if you story logs a certain amount of downloads, they publish it in paperback. They started with Romance, but they do have an Erotic section.

    I don’t know what your writing skill level is, but I would also like to recommend the book, “How to Write Erotica” by Valerie Kelly. I bought this several years ago to understand why some work was labeled erotica and some was labeled romance. Especially, since some authors in the romance genre write pretty racy stuff. It was helpful in understanding the difference on many levels, but one key element was the language used. Do you “softly caress the soft petals of her womanhood and play with er pearl” or do you “look at the pink of her pussy and lick her clit”?

    I hope this is helpful to you.

    p.s. Just noticed you were in the U.K. This information is U.S. based but I am sure they have U.K. affiliates or will work with you despite "the pond."
