If you are eager to spice things up in the bedroom there are plenty of erotic stories to read.

Enjoying the finer things in life isn’t just limited to indulging in expertly made wine and glamorous holidays; it can also include — at least for many bookworms — the art of reading a perfectly worded sex scene in some well-written erotic stories. While some might argue that TV and movies better portray these steamy encounters, avid readers know better. There’s something even sexier about the descriptive language authors choose to use that make passages come to life before your eyes without any visuals at all, and if you’ve ever read a tantalising book, you know just what we’re referring to.

For those who regularly enjoy reading eroticstories and romance, this probably doesn’t surprise you. Some of the sexiest, hottest scenes aren’t on the television—they’re written in books that will make you feel like you’re on fire while reading them.

Spice up your sex life with these irresistibly sexy erotic stories.


She Comes First: The Thinking Man’s Guide to Pleasuring a Woman

Author Ian Kerner wrote a book that Cosmopolitan described as “every man’s must-read.” It’s an indispensable guide to oral sex, female pleasure and great orgasms. This book focuses on how to put the woman’s needs first in the bedroom and how this will lead to a more enjoyable and fulfilling sex life for both partners.

Bad Behaviour, Mary Gaitskill

Nine powerful erotic stories of longing and desire, depicting the darker side of humanity with a particular focus on the disenchanted fringe that is struggling for a connect somewhere. The stories revolve around sex work, sadomasochism, substance abuse and the like, with most critics calling it a style that is terrifying and ferocious, at the same time. If you’ve seen The Secretary, you’d probably know what we’re talking about. For those who haven’t, the story depicts a sadist-masochist relationship between a lawyer and his secretary who is punished (as a form of titillation) for simple typing errors. Also, Fifty Shades of Grey is probably inspired by it, according to most critics.

Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller

The joy of skimming through the pages of banned books is definitely one of the highs every bibliophile may have experienced in his/her lifetime. This book was banned by the US censorship laws once upon a time and gained notoriety due to the same. This is a first person’s account of Miller’s time in Paris in the late 1920s. This classical work is definitely worth reading because the way Miller has described his sexual encounters is pretty explicit and definitely closer to real life than other erotic novels.
