Long before the steamy 50 Shades of Grey there were erotic novels. Erotic novels and romance novels have the ability to get the reader involved in the story line, to fantasise about the characters, to relate but to also arouse. The Ancient Greeks and Romans were known to write erotic verse and poems, in the 17th and 18th century. Nobles and Lords wrote collections of erotic verse and poems and erotica novels started to be seen. The 19th century saw more of this erotic prose and even a pornographic comic opera, the 20th century saw more and more erotic writing emerge throughout the 50’s and 60’s especially, however not everyone was in favour and some books were ordered to be destroyed. Now into the 21st century the idea of erotic novels has taken a more mainstream and accepted view.
In the 21st century, a number of female authors have risen to prominence for their well-known erotic novels and short stories. Some high-profile editors and authors would like to see the term 'erotica' removed from novels that include depictions of sexual activities. Other authors celebrate the term 'erotica' but also question why literature 'with the sex left in' should be considered outside of literary fiction.
