Lawrence Ferlinghetti
“Poetry is a naked woman, a naked man, and the distance between them.”
Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Poetry as Insurgent Art

Emme Rollins
“Fuck me,” I whispered, giving him permission, taking him into my flesh, a soft invitation to madness.”
Emme Rollins, Dear Rockstar

Emme Rollins
“We were a galaxy exploding into a million pieces, creating a whole new world, as we crashed against each other on the soft surface of his mattress, a cloud in the darkness, our bodies finally falling together like rain.”
Emme Rollins, Dear Rockstar

George R.R. Martin
“The gods made our bodies as well as our souls, is it not so? They give us voices, so we might worship them with song. They give us hands, so we might build them temples. And they give us desire, so we might mate and worship them in that way.”
George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings

“The erotic state – again, a mixture of concentration and spontaneity – is a hypnoidal state, probably the most powerful kind that we are capable of experiencing, and it is in this condition that unexpected regions of the self are revealed, as the majority of people know from experience.”
Peter Redgrove, The Black Goddess and the Unseen Real: Our Uncommon Senses and Their Common Sense

Jess C. Scott
“She felt the cold blast from the sterile air conditioning on her bare arms and thighs, as she ambled down the center of the shopping complex's ground floor.

The scene was a swirl of candy bright lights--the Victoria's Secret fuchsia signboard, signboards which lured one to purchase "confidence," or "sexual appeal," or whatever it was that was being advertised--the fluorescent lights in each store, contrasting with the shiny, black-tiled walls and eye-catching speckled marble tiles on the ground.

One could lick the floor--the tiles were spotless, clean like the fake air she was breathing in, like the atoms and cells in her that were decaying in stale neglect.”
Jess C. Scott, Jack in the Box

Michael Bassey Johnson
“The paradise in women is not the v-shape manipulation between their legs,
or the two lovely bombs, set on their bosom that can blast any strong, holy spirit filled individual, but that part of her that cannot be described, yet can only be felt.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Zeena Schreck
“Sex is like an atom bomb. A potent weapon which fascinates and frightens. We're afraid to let it loose, yet we all have our finger on the button.”

--Zeena Schreck, Cuir Underground: Sado-Magic for Satan Interview, 1998”
Zeena Schreck, Demons of the Flesh: The Complete Guide to Left Hand Path Sex Magic

Kassandra Cross
“She had assumed they would see each other every day but she hadn’t really thought about the implications of having an affair with a married man. It wasn’t going to be a normal relationship.”
Kassandra Cross, The Babysitter's First Time: Taboo Older Man Younger Woman First Time Erotic Romance

Kassandra Cross
“I want to take you under the moonlight.”

D.H. Lawrence, Erotic Works

Andy Warhol
“Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets”
Andy Warhol

Henri Lefebvre
“What we will criticize 'modern' eroticism for is its lack of genuine sensuality, a sensuality which implies beauty or charm, passion or modesty, power over the object of desire, and fulfilment.”
Henri Lefebvre, Critique of Everyday Life

Christopher Hitchens
“I don't mind admitting that I, too, have watched Hilton undergoing the sexual act. I phrase it as crudely as that because it was one of the least erotic such sequences I have ever seen. She seemed to know what was expected of her and to manifest some hard-won expertise, but I could almost have believed that she was drugged. At no point did her facial expression match even the simulacrum of lovemaking.”
Christopher Hitchens

Kassandra Cross
“She loved the fact he was older than her and more experienced, he had so much to teach her and she couldn’t wait to learn.”
Kassandra Cross, The Babysitter's First Time: Taboo Older Man Younger Woman First Time Erotic Romance

Delicious David
“Sitting on couch, lying legs apart
Dark dirty naked. Smiling at me,
Wicked lazy lusty eyes. I moaned,
When saw movement inside his silent,
The thick forest of pubic hair.”
Delicious David, Dark Desires: II Gay Erotic Poems

“Jesse realized what he was doing. The man was trying to make her angry enough to give him what he wanted in the scene, mad enough to be completely submissive. "You want me to just lie there and like it? Just beg for it? gimme, gimme, come on, baby, fuck me, stick me, kill me, make me come, make me bleed, fuck me like there's no tomorrow, take it away from me, honey, fuck my mind, fuck me to death, fuck me dead! Is that what you want?"

Morrison looked at her, his smile actually growing, "that's a start.”
Alice Alfonsi, Dark Seductions

John Updike
“Sex is like money; only too much is enough.”
John Updike, Couples

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Don't run around looking for someone who can sexually satisfy you, run around and look for the book which will intellectually satisfy you.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Kassandra Cross
“I’ve wanted you since the moment you first turned up here four months ago,” he whispered, “I have to have you.”
Kassandra Cross, The Babysitter's First Time: Taboo Older Man Younger Woman First Time Erotic Romance

“At the same time, eroticism in the home requires active engagement and willful intent. It is an ongoing resistance to the message that marriage is serious, more work than play; and that passion is for teenagers and the immature. We must unpack our ambivalence about pleasure, and challenge our pervasive discomfort with sexuality, particularly in the context of family. Complaining of sexual boredom is easy and conventional. Nurturing eroticism in the home is an act of open defience.”
Esther Perel, Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic + the Domestic

bell hooks
“Erotic attraction often serves as the catalyst for an intimate connection between two people, but it is not a sign of love. Exciting, pleasurable sex can take place between two people who do not even know each other. Yet the vast majority of males in our society are convinced that their erotic longing indicates who they should, and can, love. Led by their penis, seduced by erotic desire, they often end up in relationships with partners with whom they share no common interests of values.”
bell hooks, All About Love: New Visions

Salil Jha
“Love is the true state of the human heart. When we love, we unguard our hearts. We open ourselves up to the world with- out any restraint. When passion flows, desires stir, our earthy senses become dull, and our ethereal self becomes illumined. At this stage, we are naked, totally naked, with little or no covering of ego.”
Salil Jha, Naked Soul: The Erotic Love Poems

Salil Jha
“I believe eros dwells in our innermost being as the spirit of creative expression. To me, eros is a great path that we must walk, a song we listen to, a game that we hunt and enjoy, a lesson to learn, a garden where flowers bloom, a prodigious puzzle to solve, a book to read, a chapter to write, and an ocean to swim in. That’s what eros is to me.”
Salil Jha, Naked Soul: The Erotic Love Poems

Salil Jha
“Most of the books of erotic poetry available today are either too old or are big anthologies covering the same poets and poems. There is a lack of new and original work. Most of us have read something from Ovid, Sappho, Shakespeare, the ancient Greeks, the Romans, or from the Kama Sutra. But love is a theme that should be celebrated with freshness.”
Salil Jha, Naked Soul: The Erotic Love Poems

Rémy de Gourmont
“Nothing is better for "spiritual advancement" & the detachment of the flesh than a close reading of the "Erotic Dictionary.”
Rémy de Gourmont, Philosophic Nights in Paris,: Being Selections from Promenades Philosophiques

Michel Leiris
“Eroticism releases, ever so slightly, great lightning flashes that, on occasion, reveal to us the true nature of a given organ, suddenly restoring both its whole reality and its hallucinatory force, while simultaneously installing as sovereign goddess the abolition of hierarchies- those hierarchies within which we habitually grade, for better or for worse, the different parts of the body.”
Michel Leiris

Elizabeth Gilbert
“Alma had grown as tall as a man by now, with broad shoulders. ... This need not have necessarily precluded her from marriage. Some men liked a larger woman, who promised a stronger disposition, and Alma, it could be argued, had a handsome profile--at least from her left side. She certainly had a fine, friendly nature. Yet she was missing some invisible, essential ingredient, and so, despite all the frank eroticism that lay hidden within her body, her presence in a room did not kindle ideas of ardor in any man.

It did not help that Alma herself believed she was unlovely. She believed this only because she had been told it so many times, and in so many different ways. Most recently, the news of her homeliness had come straight from her father....”
Elizabeth Gilbert, The Signature of All Things

Chloe Thurlow
“When you succumb to obedience, in an erotic sense, you are not giving away a part of yourself, but seeking something new, something other, within yourself.”
Chloe Thurlow, Katie in Love

Carol Queen
“...there are more models than the heterosexual one for a male and female who want to exchange erotic energy.”
Carol Queen, PoMoSexuals: Challenging Assumptions About Gender and Sexuality
