Six Reasons Why Reading Erotica is Better than Watching Porn by Stephanie Kinney

Erotica has its way with you. It sinks in, grabs a hold and rocks your mind, body and soul. It inspires, teaches and entertains. While it comes in many forms, two of the most popular forms come to you in scintillating movies and literature.

Both of these forms have their benefits and edges, but let’s be honest, reading erotica certainly outweighs watching it. Call me biased–I suppose I am–but check out some of these fun reasons I think dishing on a great erotic book is better than viewing it and see if you agree.

woman reading book

1. When you read erotica, you have the ability to fill in all the details you wish to see in the characters. You want to be the leading lady, no problem. Suddenly you are. You want the leading man to be your “one who got a way.” Poof, he is. Even if you don’t want to envision yourself or someone you know, you can attribute physical traits you find attractive. Films take away the mystery and present you with two paid actors sweating and moaning. There’s no “one who got away” there.

2. Reading erotica also lets you be a part of the characters lives. You grow with them in their relationship, feel their ups and downs and ultimately can be far more involved in their sex scenes than a film can offer. While you can find an erotic film that has a storyline, most of them are short, far-fetched and leave a lot to the imagination.

3. And while we’re on story lines, erotic literature comes to you with a lot more originality packed in. Maybe your characters met while hiking in Spain, perhaps they met while getting a coffee, but I can almost guarantee they didn’t meet because the lady of the house couldn’t afford to pay the refrigerator repairman.

4. Erotic literature can also be taken with you wherever you go. No need to limit your pleasure to the warm glow of your laptop in a dark room. You can shove your book or Kindle in your bag and engage in a little mental stimulation on the bus, in the park and even on your break at work. Talk about a little exhibitionism!

5. Reading also allows you to skip some of the overly close close-ups that erotic films so frequently feature. It may get you close to the characters, close to the action and close to your own personal sexual brink, but you won’t have to see the bouncing underside of anyone’s genitalia.

6. Watching erotica can help inspire some crazy sex moves, some extra vocal screams and even the use of some sexy toys like the ones you can get from places like Adam and Eve, but it can’t help you talk dirty like erotic literature can. Hear me out. You can use erotica to incite a little dirty talk by reading some of the chapters to your partner or using them to reenact a little role playing.

I can appreciate erotica in all its forms, so this is all a little in jest. With that said, if you had to pick, which way would you go?

Liberty Awakened Isle of Fangs Book 1 – A YA Vampire Novella

Buy it on Kindle



Evil lurks beneath the surface in the beauty of the tropics…

After graduation from her small, Oklahoma high school, Liberty Delacort is looking forward to a fun-filled summer before college. But when the people she trusts the most betray her, and a letter arrives claiming her deceased father is still alive, she jumps at the chance to travel to an exotic island to meet him.

But her excitement is short-lived. Her father is dying, and he doesn’t want her around. And, in spite of its outward tranquility, the island is filled with danger and ominous secrets. The secrets soon begin to unravel, and she discovers she is a descendant of Van Helsing, the vampire hunter.

The one up side is her budding romance with the sweet and sexy Ryan Kelly. But even that is threatened when—in spite of her fear of him—she finds herself attracted to an insolent, formidable vampire. Her plan to stay away from him fails when she learns he is the only one with the ability to train her to fulfill her destiny—to save humans from a faction of vicious vampires.

Will her inexperience lead to her death—and the death of others—or will she rise to the challenge and realize her full potential as a Hunter?


Eli moved closer until only a hint of space separated their bodies. “Liberty?” His raspy voice was like a caress over her flesh. A breeze wafted over her bare back, and she shivered. She waited breathlessly for his next words, his next move. “You find me irresistible,” he whispered, his gaze never leaving hers. “You’re helpless to deny me anything. Your knees are weak.” He stroked his finger over her shoulder, letting them trail down to the center of her chest, just above her breasts. “Your heart is pounding for me right now. All you can think about is what it would feel like to kiss me.”

She licked her lips, wishing her glass wasn’t empty. Her mouth was so dry, she couldn’t speak. But oh wow…was he ever right. She didn’t even mind his aggressive, unusual approach. Something about the atmosphere, about leaving behind the trappings of home. The memories of what Cam and Alyssa had done made her reckless. She took his glass from his hand without breaking eye contact. His eyebrows rose as he watched her take a sip of the strong liquor, whatever it was. It burned her throat and eyes, but she resisted the urge to cough. It had done the trick, and she was able to whisper, “Yes.”

The corner of his mouth quirked. He moved closer, brushed his lips along hers, just a tease. That was it? That was the kiss? She bit back a groan of frustration. Her body ached with disappointment. But he moved toward her again, his eyes searching, his lips a hairsbreadth from hers. He stroked a hand down the side of her neck. His touch sent a flash of fire through her veins. She nearly moaned in anticipation, in yearning to feel his mouth, firm and hot against hers. She braced herself. Something primitive deep within told her this would be the kiss to rival any other. She swayed, her lids drifting shut, every nerve in her body tingling…

A scream tore through the night, breaking the spell. Liberty’s eyes flew open, and she gasped.

Eli stepped back. “Dammit,” he bit out. He cupped her cheek in his hand. “Don’t forget where we were.”

Then he was gone. She could barely feel her legs. Were they still supporting her? What the hell had just happened?

She shook her head, then followed the sound of excited voices where the scream had originated.

A group of people had gathered around a gazebo at the back of the house.  Liberty pushed her way through the crowd. Ryan knelt in the center of the gazebo next to a bench where a girl lay still. Her skin was as white as the moon, blank eyes staring at the midnight sky.

Liberty was afraid to look, but somehow couldn’t help herself. She scanned the girl’s body from head to toe. No blood. Good, that was a good sign, right? But the girl looked so…dead.

“Son of a bitch,” a male voice shouted. “She’s been drained.”
