The ABCs of Erotica

Erotica – Holiday Style

I’ll admit I jumped on the bandwagon this year and authored an erotic novella for Christmas. Even before I published, I noticed a number of works centered on Halloween and even Thanksgiving that got me thinking on the idea. With all that red fur and the need to snuggle up for warmth, Christmas seems a natural for erotic plots.

When I gave it some thought, holidays and celebrations combine two things that might lead to the need for an erotic break with some spicy reading. On one hand, holidays are a time for family and celebration. On the other, family and celebration with all the planning and attendant fuss can necessitate a serious mental health break. What better way to clear your mind and recharge your batteries than with a naughty novel?

Holiday themes really lend themselves to erotica. For Halloween, you have costume parties of all sorts, which can lead to mistaken identities and opportunities for anonymous interludes. When more anonymous, people can let be more bold and let their desires flow freely. I can see many promising plots here.

I’ll admit, Thanksgiving didn’t immediately leap to mind as a source of erotic inspiration. But then I saw the book Spanksgiving and I thought to myself, maybe that’s what happens if the turkey is too dry? Or maybe, if Auntie Mabel is too overbearing at the holiday table, the neighbor takes her away into another room for some light bondage? I started to see possibilities everywhere.

Now, when you get to Christmas, well the prospects seem endless. All sorts of mutual gift giving occurs throughout the month. I’ve seen more titles with people doing naughty things with candy canes than I thought possible. Sometimes, I am humbled by the imaginations of my fellow writers. There are lots of wonderful holiday names like Holly and Ivy. Santa likes make lists of the naughty and the nice. Even grown-ups like to sit in Santa’s lap. Perhaps too it is the overall incorruptibility of the childhood Santa icon. It seems like there is nothing people enjoy more than seeing a little perversion around something normally so very innocent. So, dear readers, I give you a sincere Seasons Greetings and bid you to fill up your eReaders with sexy holiday reads for your enjoyment.
