Reading Erotica helps you explore your own desires and express your needs in intimate moments.
Once 50 Shades of Grey hit bookshelves, a genre that was seldom explored by readers entered the spotlight. Erotica allows people to discover personal interests they never considered and enter an alluring fictional scenario. You don’t have to be a sex fanatic to enjoy these types of books, but here are three great reasons to pick up an Erotica novel today.
1. You can immerse yourself in a fantasy world
Similar to any book, whether it be fantasy, an autobiography, or erotica, reading is considered a form of escape. You drop into the inner workings of another person’s mind, which can be incredibly rewarding after a stressful day of responsibilities. Erotica allows people to explore scenarios that they wouldn’t necessarily want to experience in real life. You are an invisible observer rather than a participant. You can let your imagination run wild and never have to share these secret interests with another person.
2. You make important discoveries about your own sexual preferences
Even if you communicate regularly with your partner, sometimes it’s hard to express intimate desires without feeling uncomfortable. Erotica novels can help in the moments you are lacking inspiration, or when you don’t even know how to begin the conversation. Many people are under the misconception that erotica is pages and pages of explicit content, but oftentimes the passionate stories are accompanied by complex plot-lines that detail the progression of relationships. Sure, it may be a little overdramatized compared to real life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pull a trick or two out of the book. You are able to determine your levels of comfortability and discover experiences that will lead to long-term sexual satisfaction.
3. You form stronger connections with your partner
Once you have a better understanding of your own sexual desires, the moments of intimacy in the bedroom improve, and your likelihood of orgasm increases. Orgasms release the hormone oxytocin, which helps creates sensations of love and bonding. It also lowers your blood pressure and promotes feelings of relaxation. Even further, orgasms are a natural remedy to decrease pain in the body and help you fall asleep at night. While you may have been experiencing your fair share of orgasms before picking up an erotica book, there’s no telling what you may learn that will help you vocalize your needs to your partner.
