I have been a lover of Erotica since I first hit puberty (surprise!) I believe that our sexual interactions are what truly define us as Homo Sapiens - In the animal world, copulation is merely an urge to procreate while, human sexuality extends to pleasure and loving gratification (and procreation, of course).
Erotica as an art form shows the beauty, devotion, and emotion possible between people and illustrates that we are far more than simply 'animals.'
I love writing erotica...I love reading erotica...and, by the way, I am totally and completely In-Love with my characters. They help me see life and people as more than creatures searching for that next 'buck'.
Like many of my female characters, I, too, consider myself to be somewhat attracted to the female gender. The softness, the hidden moisture, the overwhelming responses that need to be teased-out can be so much more rewarding.
