As you all know that follow this blog, it is devoted to Romantic Lesbian Erotica. At least Candice Christian began with that intention. But she found, as most writers in the industry Romantic Lesbianism is a very amorphous entity.
There are nook and crannies (pun intended) throughout the topic with variation that cross the line into heterosexual, transsexual and scores more. Themes like BDSM, Catfighting, Golden Showers to name a few dominate the work of many authors in the business of erotica.
Today the blog will focus on several other authors in the Lesbian Erotica business, some are just starting out some are seasoned writers. I have read them and they are indeed, a great blend of lesbian themes. I bought a few myself.
Before we move on I would like to offer a mainline opinion via Wikipedia, of what the term Lesbian Erotic is and how it is perceived. After you read the short essay, I urge you to take a look at: Aunt Grace – by I. G. Frederick and two offerings by that author. Next, a couple offerings from Kara Salem Criminal Lesbians the entire series. And Penalty. It leans a bit toward the domination theme, as I mentioned above, so you have been warned. And finally, My Horny Colleague – by Rock Star.
Wikipedia© says this about Lesbian Erotica.
Lesbian erotica deals with depictions in the visual arts of lesbianism, which is the expression of female-to-female sexuality. Lesbianism has been a theme in erotic art since at least the time of ancient Rome, and many regard depictions of lesbianism (as for sexuality in general) to be erotic.
For much of the history of cinema and television, lesbianism was considered taboo, though since the 1960s it has increasingly become a genre in its own right. First found in softcore movies and erotic thrillers, depictions of lesbianism entered mainstream cinema in the 1980s. In pornography, depictions of lesbian sex form a popular subgenre, directed toward male heterosexual audiences, lesbian audiences, and bisexual audiences of any gender.
Erotica and pornography involving sex between women have been predominantly produced by men for a male and female audience. A 1996 study by Henry E. Adams, Lester W. Wright, Jr., and Bethany A. Lohr, published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, found that heterosexual men have the highest genital and subjective arousal to pornography depicting heterosexual activity, rather than lesbian activity. Another study indicated that heterosexual men are more aroused by depictions involving lesbian sex than they are by depictions of heterosexual activity, while heterosexual and lesbian women were aroused by a wide range of sexual stimuli. On-screen lesbian sex (in both Western and Japanese pornography), while typically aimed at a male audience, has developed a small lesbian audience as well, but still contrasts with gay male pornography, which is considered a genre of its own.
Deborah Swedberg, in an analysis published in the NWSA Journal in 1989, argues that it is possible for lesbian viewers to reappropriate lesbian porn. Swedberg notes that, typically, all-women films differ from mixed porn (with men and women) in, among other things, the settings (less anonymous and more intimate) and the very acts performed (more realistic and emotionally involved, and with a focus on the whole body rather than just the genitals): “the subject of the heterosexually produced all-women videos is female pleasure”. She argues (against Laura Mulvey‘s “Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cineman” and Susanne Kappeler‘s Pornography and Representation, for example) that such movies allow for female subjectivity since the women are more than just objects of exchange. Appropriation by women of male-made lesbian erotica (such as by David Hamilton) was signaled also by Tee Corinne.
Some pornography is made by lesbians, such as the defunct lesbian erotic magazine On Our Backs; videos by Fatale Media, SIR Video, Pink and White Productions, and BLEU Productions; and web sites such as the CyberDyke Network.

Second Place, National Leather Association: International John Preston Short Story Award
“Grace leaned forward and rested her square chin on her laced fingers. She kept her straight blond hair cut just below her ears and had four studs, in the rainbow colors, in each lobe. The enticing scent of leather wafted across the table. ‘There are things about me you don’t know.’ ”
How can Cindy flirt with the beautiful blonde dental instructor while her mother propositions the student examining her teeth on Cindy’s behalf?
“Scooting closer, Cindy pressed her thigh tight against the other women’s. Jean turned, lifted Cindy’s chin with two fingers, and leaned over. Cindy tilted her head back in invitation and Jean pressed her lips against Cindy’s, her hand sliding back behind Cindy’s neck.”

Carla Is in Trouble with the Law—And Now She Is Caught in a Cruel Criminal Justice System She Can’t Readily Escape
A 40,000-word lesbian bondage and punishment novella
Carla is a hot, 19-year-old woman who has yet another run-in with the law. When her friend Terri frames her for a crime she didn’t commit, Carla must face the wrath of Officer Gloria Jacobs, a sadistic woman whose only job is to extract a confession from her.
Carla, however, is terrified of providing that confession because it will mean a life of prison, hard labor, and abuse. Now she must suffer the cruel punishments Officer Jacobs has in store for her if she is to get through this interrogation intact without providing the confession that will get her into even further trouble.
Whether facing the fierce paddle on various parts of her body or engaging the officer in the ecstasy of lesbian sex, Carla must find a way to endure the torment inflicted upon her and resist the temptations presented to her so she can make it out of this arrest without moving further into a criminal justice system that might rack her beyond her very mind.
After her time of interrogation, indictment, and even a sadistic trial with a menacing judge who will subject the girl to all kinds of harsh treatment to confess to this crime, Carla must go to prison to begin her sentence. And all because of her best friend’s betrayal. The cruelty of life in prison is a reality that will slap the young woman in the face, but she holds out for an ounce of hope in her new life as a prison girl, hope that just might rescue her from the brink of despair and lead her back to a life she can be truly proud of.
My Horny Colleague
5 thoughts on “Lesbian Erotica an Essay”
It is interesting, I have been asked if I write Lesbian Erotica, and I always answer no. Under the name Scono Sciuto, I write stories that have lesbian relationships, but those relationships are simply part of the story, not the story itself. I wonder if I have been incorrect.
Thanks for the comment. I agree with you regarding relationships. One needs to look at the idea for the story and ask , Is this going to be a story with some lesbians in it? Is it going to be a story about lesbians? Looked at another way; am I writing a mystery with some sex in it, or am I writing a sex story, that contains a mystery plot. There is a fine line of distinction and if I had that part mastered I would not be a struggling fiction writer. I do think the author needs to focus on the audience she is trying to reach. In my case, or my brand, focuses on the erotic aspects of lesbians and the lesbian lifestyle. Erotica tends to under develop a lot of the relationship components.
100% agree. I can take all the graphic content and still have a story, but not the way I want to tell the story.
I write primarily for myself, yet still one day hope to be a better known storyteller.
Best luck to you.
