Erotica and Other Mental Turn Ons

I remember the first time that I read any type of erotica. When I was in college, I found myself reading forums devoted to fictional celebrity sex-capades, you know, things like the pornographic version of Beverly Hills 90210.

From there, I began to read Nancy Friday's Woman on Top, My Secret Garden, Philosophy in the Boudoir by the Marquis de Sade, and some of Susie Bright's collections. I was always an avid reader, but there was something that made literary erotica just as exciting, sometimes moreso than visual pornography. Erotica was different because your fantasies could truly run wild - you could be in the story or make up your own characters based upon your fantasy du jour.

Because we are such a visually oriented society, we sometimes forget how very arousing literature can be. I mean, that's why romance novels are so successful, right? While I like my erotica a little less romantic, there's a lot out there. Something for everyone. I get lots of questions about what erotica I like to read. But what about you? Who turns your mind (and your body) on?
