There are very few things in this world that we appreciate more than free porn (and the ability to watch it on our cell phones). After all, the myth that only men enjoy sex and watching porn is so outdated. We. Love. Sex. Finding the right space to properly enjoy porn while also working, doing your share of the chores and raising any babies can be a challenge, though. Sure, sometimes you mute the video because the dude’s utterances are just so tired. However, most porn is best experienced with the volume up, which makes it hard to enjoy in a house full of people. While you may not hold any shame attached to self-pleasuring, you’d probably still like some semblance of privacy, right?
Enter erotica (or Literotica). Not only does reading your porn mean you can do so in absolute silence, it’s also much easier to read when you’re lacking privacy. After all, that block of text could just as easily be a work email or another Scary Mommy article, instead of a totally wild and satisfying sex story. Of course, not all erotica is created equal. Can you imagine what a post on Literotica from your high school boyfriend might look like? Cringe. There are plenty of truly decent sites out there, though, that offer great material. Below are some of our favorites.
But first, looking for more info on all things erotic and sensual? Check out our package on sex poems, erotic quotes, sex songs, the steamiest sex positions, the ins and outs of shower sex, how to have sex over video chat, how to have sex in a car, role play ideas, sexting examples, and oh so much more!
Literotica might be one of the oldest and most extensive collections of free online sex stories. Everything is categorized two ways. First, you can look up exactly the kind of stories that fall into your specific area of sexual interest. Think: Bondage, pregnancy, and interracial. The stories are also categorized as if they were filed in a bookstore. Do you want something more Sci-fi/Fantasy, a work of historical fiction, or perhaps something more romantic? They also offer summaries of each short story. Whatever you’re into, Literotica has made it extremely easy to sort through quickly and find just the right thing.
Looking for something a little (or a lot-le) less heteronormative? Nifty is an excellent resource for free online erotica featuring the LGBTQ+ community. You can narrow it down based on your interests, needs, and orientation. In other words? No matter how you identify, you should be able to easily find yourself in the sex stories posted on Nifty.
Another giant collection of free online erotica can be found at ASSTR. Their website is easy to navigate and filter. And, if you post to their site, you could even find your work featured in one of their anthologies. Talk about an ego boost.
Masturbation can be just as sexy and sensual as sex with another person. However, it’s often overlooked in the erotica community. To be fair: It’s often insensitively portrayed in the porn industry, too. After all, are you masturbating for yourself… or for your partner? At Solo Touch, all the stories are all centered on self pleasure.
Like it a little rough? BDSM Cafe is an advocate for all things, obviously, BDSM. They offer free sex stories, poetry, galleries, and videos that all cater to adults with kinks that line up with that sexual philosophy. They offer short form and long-form sex stories, all totally free.
Ever start a story, erotic or otherwise, and then hate the turns it takes? At CHYOA, your erotic adventure is almost entirely in your hands. Haha. Get it? In your hands? Enjoy!
We’ve all been there. We just finished an amazing show or movie but immediately thought, “Those two people shouldn’t have ended up together!” That is literally the reason fan fiction became a “thing.” At AFF, your fan fiction will come with a side of hot, graphic sex. Think it’s a little too nerdy for you? Fun fact: 50 Shades Of Grey actually started as Twilight fan fiction.
Not only does Kinkly give some chef’s kiss-worthy sex tips, they also offer up a hefty collection of erotica.
Why the website is a bit garish, the stories on TDS are honestly nothing short of hot. Of course, that might have something to do with the fact that everything published on the site is supposed to be true.
No. Seriously. In case you missed the memo, everyone is self-publishing on Amazon these days. And while you can pay your hard-earned money for a lot of it, there’s also tons of free erotica on the site. Why? Many up and coming authors will offer their newest books for free for a limited time. Offering books for free still counts as sales (kind of) and it helps push their books higher up on the bestsellers and most popular lists. They are also hoping that after you read their work, you will leave a review. Writers who publish on Amazon might have slightly better writing chops than those who post on the above websites. But, it is also often their first foray into self-publishing. You should get some decent content entirely for free. So, make sure you leave that review as a “thank you.” As for the subject matter? Anything is fair game on Amazon. There’s even a collection of (wait for it) dinosaur erotica. Read the teaser before you download the book.
Best Erotic Podcasts About Sex
While you shouldn’t drive, operate heavy machinery, or perform long division while listening to erotica, you can do just about anything else. As long as you got the headphones on you can listen to these erotic podcasts as you do dishes, run a load of laundry, or tidy up the kid’s toys. Here are just some of our favorites to tantalize you during the day and fuel your fantasies at night.
Write Your Own
Who knows better about what you need to finish the job than yourself, right? Ever have a sexual encounter that you thoroughly enjoyed? Or maybe one you wish played out differently? Spend some time with your memory and your expectations, then put pen to paper. (Or fingers to keys!) If you’re worried that erotica is “beneath you,” then fear not. First, on all these sites you’re free to publish under a pen name. Furthermore, you might be surprised to know that erotica isn’t the low-grade smut of the past. Even Vampire-enthusiast and best-selling author Anne Rice has written and published highly popular erotica. Her Sleeping Beauty series is a masterpiece in sexy retellings of classic fairytales and that we highly recommend.
With that in mind, we’ve put together some basic writing tips:
-Keep a consistent narrator.
-Create relatable, likable narrators.
How do you know if what you write is worth publishing? If it takes your breath away or leaves you squirming in your seat, there’s a good chance that it’ll do the same for someone else. Share the goods.
