This is opening up a big can of worms...
but fuck it.
We're all grownups (albeit some of us are more grown-up than others), and this is a subject that I'm curious about.
The million dollar question: What do you consider the difference between porn and erotica? Or is there one?
I had an interesting conversation with a good friend a few days ago and I was surprised to hear how vehemently she opposed porn - and interested to hear her reasons. She enjoys erotica, however.
This got me thinking, because I think I enjoy some of both. Erica Jong, for instance, is one of my favorite writers, and I think she writes both porn and erotica.
Here are the ground rules/assumptions:
1. If you are offended by this post, you don't have to partake in the discussion.
2. No name-calling or rudeness to other bloggers' replies, please.
3. I am talking about porn and erotica in the context of consenting adults.
So what do you think?
