    Maybe I'm lazy, and don't want to write plot with sex then. I'm writing so much plot in my regency novel(including one delicately laid out sex scene), and am unsure if I'm willing to do as much with writing erotica. Hum.....not sure if I'll stay with Regency stuff for now then, or move to more modern stuff when I'm ready to write plot with erotica. I was planning on writing short stories of women's sexual encounters in book form. Or possibly eventually something that has to do with personal experience, but not now-the timing to do anything semi-autobiographical isn't good-yet.....

    I'm not going to waste my time wading through the sticky gobs of badly written porn. Literotica has a bad rap for a reason.
    You are more than welcome to take anything I say personally, whether it was intended that way or not.

    I've read several published novels marketed as erotic romance which were just as mediocre as the stuff on Literotica or Kristen or LostBoy or Nifty or AdultFanfiction; the real difference was that they were finished. Of all fiction available free on the internet, regardless of quality, its most common flaw is being unfinished.
