Great article, I suspect it may work its way into a does sex sell story I feel percolating in my subconscious about the surprising and mostly highly positive reaction from women to two fairly erotic tanka I wrote recently.
Just what is and is not "erotica?" If you want to have a look and weigh in, I'd appreciate it. I think spiritual erotica might be the proper tag, once people properly understand the term spiritual as having nothing to do with god necessarily but everything to do with love, empathy, and compassion, and perhaps it turns out, passion? My spiritually erotic tanka were not written to titillate nor arouse, thus I'm not surprised men have not reacted.
They are written to discuss sex as beautiful and to expand conversations about what people are unnaturally shy about.
