More quotes on writing erotica

From THE BURNING PEN, Simon Sheppard's essay "Mondo Pomo Porno":

"So one of the things porn can do, especially well-crafted, thoughtful erotica, is help convince us that sex is worth not just talking about but thinking about. In depth.

...erotica is given the freedom to speak of consequences, to admit that, yes, desire can be frightening and awful and truly destructive but is worth pursuing all the same."

"Sure, fiction is made up, and writers are liars. But that doesn't mean we should be dishonest liars. Each of us has a truth to tell...genre writing can become transcendent if it's written from the heart."
