Where did you first encounter erotic literature?

Even if it's nothing hardcore, when/ where was the first time you were reading a passage and went... Ooooh. Sex. Sexy sex.
I'd be surprised if people say literotica. I found this site much later- the first time I encountered a piece of erotica in literature was while reading Sidney Sheldon's Other Side of Midnight when I was 14...
Man, Noelle Page still lives in a small corner of my heart...

The first time I remembered reading something with sex in it was a horror novel called The Devils Kiss.

Looking back, it was a horrible book in general and one of those things where its like the author wanted to write sex rather than horror.

But some of the scenes stuck with me, especially when there was a mother and daughter seducing a guy together.

So that was the first Oh...and soon became the first thing I read one handed

Now the other reason it offends me is it was about Satanists and of course they were shown as nothing but lusty morons led by their hormones

Lol, those darn Satanists. Oh god my friend gave me a similar book where a lady got impregnated by a wonderfully human looking alien who looked so fucking gorgeous oh my god wasn't the protagonist blessed to have a partner like that? Yeah.. So this alien thing came from outer space to fuck her (as gentleman/alienly as possible of course...wining and dining her and capturing the heart of her dog and saving her neighbors etc) so they can produce the baby that will save their planet or something.
They needed to try many, many times. I understand now why the book cost just 99 cents. Dishtang over there has a better idea for a plot.

Back in the dark ages, a bunch of the neighborhood kids had a swimming hole on a creek south of town. We rode our bikes through the back streets and across a field to a minor highway. Along the highway a mile or so and then down an old overgrown road through the woods. Lot of fun times.

Then someone put up a fence and gate.

Being adventurous, I decided to see if there was a trail along the creek. I was exploring under the closest bridge over the creek when I found someone's plastic wrapped stash of old porn. I ended up borrowing two paperback books. I never did finish exploring along the creek.

I don't remember the name of either book but some of the scenes still live in my memory.

The Book of Genesis.

My parents never lifted a finger to protect me (or my sister) from what we might read. Pictures were a different matter. I read erotic literature before I knew it was erotic. I read "Stranger in a Strange Land" when I was 10.

I don't remember exactly how old I was, but it was definitely before high school and sometime after my dad switched us from Prodigy to AOL. Most of the details are fuzzy, but I vividly remember reading about a wealthy sheikh breaking in a new concubine. The writer described the woman's vagina as dry and unforgiving. Yummy stuff

I also found my first erotic literature. We rented a cottage by the beach for a family vacation. I found a couple copies of Playboy magazines under the bed. I snuck back into the room to read them when I had the chance. Needless to say I took them with me when we left. They were under my bed from then on. That was the first time I saw the 'centerfold'. She was gorgeous !! WOW !!

Playboy published erotic stories? Hmm...

Yeah, that copy of Other Side of Midnight was also *ahem* taken from the Lost and Found which I was supposed to be prefecting over. My dad found it one day and told me never to read such books again.

Of course I listened to him 😆

Back then odds are the author was 'anonymous' there was a ton of that stuff around back in the fifties and sixties.

'My Secret Life' by 'Walter' all 11 volumes tucked away in a library-chair in the family home when I was 14 or 15. It's a huge work, and it took me ages to work out what was going on, it's not exactly an easy narrative to follow, it's Victorian, written by someone who used entirely too many words, and to be honest, I didn't understand a lot of them anyway, or what they were describing; it's pretty heavy-going, not exactly something for a little light reading. That was 35 years ago, as far as I know they're all still there.

'Eros Unbound' by Anais Nin made much more sense, even if a lot of the imagery was too oblique for me at 17 or 18, which is when I read it. After that, when I was still at university, books like 'The Oyster', 'The Pearl', 'Fanny Hill: Memoirs of a woman of Pleasure' by John Cleland, and 'Tis pity She's A Whore', by John Ford which is pretty juicy for a Restoration Tragedy, dealing with, among other things, incest, pregnancy, murder, and betrayal, and 'Rosie: Her Intimate Diaries' and other top-shelf cod-Edwardian erotica.

I was about 10. I cant remember the name of the book. It was given to me by a deeply religious couple who lived down the road as a sort of thank you for looking after their animals while they went off and attended some churchy conference.

The novel was about some family business prospecting for oil. I think that my benefactors probably thought that Id be interested in all the geology and chemistry that was woven into the story. Im sure that they had no idea that, about two-thirds of the way through the book, a couple of the main characters would settle down to several pages of explicit, leave-nothing-to-the-imagination bonking.

Funny thing is, Im not sure that the sex scene added anything to story. I wonder if the author just got bored.

A Thousand and One Arabian Nights, the four volume version, when I was about 11 going on 12. My parents gave it to me to read as a present - not sure they'd read it themselves. Got me very hot and bothered.

Sometimes it's not what you read but what you read into it that makes it erotic.

Back in the late '60s and '70s there was a series of paperbacks by, by anonymous. Some of the raunchiest stuff I ever read and I bought it at B. Dalton Bookseller. Plain covers, no art. I forget the titles, but the electric yellow and green covers were unforgettable.

Then I found Penthouse Letters. Need I say more?

'Psychology Today' had some outrageously erotic letters in their advice column. It was fun reading for a high-schooler.

Just how many men should she have up her ass at the same time? Is there a downside?

Letters to Penthouse was what i remember finding first also. Then I stumbled across a 1970s pulp paperback that was as explicit as anything on Lit today. I was a senior in high school and used it for an oral book report.

Even got an "A" for it.

A sandpaper vagina doesn't sound pleasant for either party. LOL

I think the first book I read that turned me on was some fantasy book I grabbed at a bookstore because the title and the cover made me think it would be like the Narnia books. It was not like the Narnia books. I still thoroughly enjoyed the read, but in a whole brand new way. If I recall correctly, it wasn't that explicit, but it did have references to a centaur who was married to a human and there was talk of their sex life, which got my young brain wondering how that would work. I remember a scene with plain vanilla human sex toward the end. I may have dogeared a few pages. I think one of my parents must have realized what I was reading and taken it from my room and tossed it. Stupid nosy parents.

I also discovered a friend's mom's romance novels, one of which had a rape scene right near the beginning, involving a sexy trucker and his eventual love interest (!).

Funny, I still enjoy the inhuman and non-con categories on Lit.

Definitely not for the vagina-bearer, but the sheikh sure enjoyed it

I think that was your mistake. How many unsexy books did you dog-ear at that age?

Also, you just gave me an idea for my first Non-Human story. Thanks!
