Erotica is any artistic work that deals substantively with erotically stimulating or sexually arousing subject matter. Erotic art may use any artistic form to depict erotic content, including painting, sculpture, drama, film or music. Erotic literature and erotic photography have become genres in their own right. Erotica has high-art aspirations, differentiating it from commercial pornography.
Distinction is often made between erotica and pornography (as well as the lesser known genre of sexual entertainment, ribaldry), although some viewers may not distinguish between them.
A key distinction, some have argued, is that pornography’s objective is the graphic depiction of sexually explicit scenes, while erotica “seeks to tell a story that involves sexual themes” that include a more plausible depiction of human sexuality than in pornography.
Additionally, works considered degrading or exploitative tend to be classified by those who see them as such, as “porn” rather than as “erotica” and consequently, pornography is often described as exploitative or degrading.
Feminist writer Gloria Steinem distinguishes erotica from pornography, writing: “Erotica is as different from pornography as love is from rape, as dignity is from humiliation, as partnership is from slavery, as pleasure is from pain.” Steinem’s argument hinges on the distinction between reciprocity versus domination, as she writes: “Blatant or subtle, pornography involves no equal power or mutuality. In fact, much of the tension and drama comes from the clear idea that one person is dominating the other.”Thanks for watching, on tipmyass you can find best booty and ass twerking videos
