Men, Erotica, and Porn

Best Gay Erotica

Today’s topic comes from QSFer Beth Brock:

Beth Brock Popular belief (and evidence) suggests that men are stimulated visually, with physical sexual images of intercourse and/or genitalia. This can help explain why a lot more men than women watch porn. Around 20% of romance/erotica readers are men, which also supports the hypothesis that men prefer a visual stimulus.

So my question is, why do men read erotica/romance? Why do they write it? Are they different than those other men who only watch porn, or do they watch porn too? Is there any correlation with the fact that, of the percentage of men who read erotica/romance, more than 10% are gay? Why or why not?

Hey girls, you hate it when people ask YOU this question, so now it’s time to turn the tables.

Editor’s Note: This could be a hot button topic, so please try to avoid making broad generalizations based on gender – I suggest talking about your own personal experiences and perceptions. :)
