One of the things I have been asked recently is whether I still write erotic short stories, and whether I have any plans to post any more erotica here on this website. This is quite understandable, since much of my earlier writing here did include many erotic stories as well as posts which were more than adult in nature. And it is an interesting fact, although I suppose hardly surprising, that the most visited pages or posts here concern sex and erotica. There are ups and downs in the figures, but generally the top ten posts viewed do tend to have an erotic nature.
Perhaps I should feel a little sad about this, I have, after all, written and published many posts on subjects other than sex, and only one of my publications so far has been erotica. Sex and pornography – or erotica if you prefer – is a mere four percent of the Internet, I am told, but clearly takes a higher priority for many when it comes to surfing the Internet. On the other hand, I do not feel put down by the truth of human nature: I daresay the main reason this blog has been so successful, has had so many visitors over the years, is because it has erotica. The right buzzwords are there for all of the search machines, even the more obscure ones.

I do have a small collection of erotic short stories which have not yet been published, but I am in two minds about publishing them here. On the one side my visitor rate would probably rise again – although I cannot complain about the number of clicks I receive each day – on the other I do like the idea of putting them down on paper and publishing them as small books, as I did with Intimate, Discreet.
Once we get the publishing business sorted out, as I mentioned in my post yesterday, and all the necessary paperwork completed, this will probably be the way that I go. So the answer is: yes, I do still write erotica, for hard copy publication. I also write many other things, not necessarily linked to the more pleasurable side of intimate life, and these will also be appearing in due course. Just keep an eye open here for notifications, and make sure that you bookmark the shop!
