The Hottest Erotica Books We Can’t Put Down

Interested in some new steamy book finds penned by Black authors? We got all your wildest fantasies with these recommendations. Erotica, unfortunately, gets a bad rep, but there are so many benefits of reading erotica that this genre deserves a second look.

Why You Should Read Erotica Books

According to mental health and sexuality educator Sarah Jane, reading arousing material can help you shift your stress or anxiety into positive emotions with a rush of dopamine. As life’s daily woes can take a hit on a person’s mind, they can even trickle down into an individual’s sex life. A good erotica book find can take a turn for the better in the bedroom. Additionally, reading erotica books can provide a safe space for sexual exploration. Sex and masturbation have had a long-term connection to shame and taboo.

However, reading erotica is always a reader’s sexual imagination and reinforces readers are worthy of sexual exploration. According to Dr. Risa Kagan, a gynecologist at Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation, about 1 in 10 women have a low sex drive and are distressed by it. A study conducted in the National Library of Medicine found that 90 percent of women used ‘mental framing’ (also known as scenario conjuring) to get aroused. Since erotica provides literary contextualization to characters versus a visual foundation, women erotica readers can connect differently to erotica titles compared to male readers.
