Blogging A-Z Challenge

Thirty Days. Twenty-six posts.

 April 1 marks the first day of the annual blogging challenge. For 26 days of April (every day except for Sunday) I’m going to have a post related to my Blogging A-Z Theme.

(This post contains adult content that may not be suitable for those under 18)

What’s my theme, you ask?

Do you really need to?

I write bedtime reading for adults, stories they can enjoy alone and with a partner. So it only makes sense that my theme is – Erotica.

I’ll be picking a word or phrase commonly associated with the literary genre of erotica. Don’t worry, these posts won’t be graphic or cringe-worthy – I’m looking to educate, information, amuse and always, entertain.

Read on!

H is for…


Homoeroticism is the sexual attraction, not necessarily consummated, between members of the same sex.

It differs from homosexuality as it refers specifically to the desire, which can be temporary; homosexuality implies a permanent state of sexual orientation.

Homoeroticism has existed in literature since the very first author put pen to paper, or quill to parchment. These days, the genre of erotica is peppered with scenes of male on male, female on female sexual interludes. The characters may or may not be homosexual, but just be acting out their desire.

I don’t have to tell you these scenes can be quite erotic and exciting, whatever your sexual orientation may be!
