On Erotica – Emmanuelle de Maupassant Delves Deep

Raz here. The state of erotica has been in flux for much of the Internet Age. Reading, writing, publishing, creating, consuming, criticizing, selling, buying – all have been transformed by the no-longer-new media of e-book (indie and corporate) and online story site. How has that world shaped erotica itself, and those who write and read it – and vice versa?

Emmanuelle de Maupassant is trying to find out. She’s collating and distilling a survey of over 130 erotica writers and asking them… everything. And they are telling her. The entire series is worth a read, but I’ll link directly to a few particularly relevant to here.
