Although it's like [[UsefulNotes/{{Pornography}} porn]], Erotica can be educational, well-written, and sometimes even pass into the literary canon as acknowledged classics. This ranges from the ancient and quasi-sacred, like ''Literature/KamaSutra'' -- full of information about sexual relations, with a brief foray into cryptography and other methods of concealing your salacious affairs -- to the fairly modern, such as ''Literature/LadyChatterleysLover.'' In some cases an erotic book can come to challenge entire philosophies about sex and sexuality, like ''Literature/VenusInFurs''. As mentioned above, even the Bible has erotica in it: the Song of Solomon a.k.a. the Song of Songs is remarkably couched in sensual language. One of its opening passages, [[AsTheGoodBookSays "Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth"]] is one of the most famous verses of the Bible itself.

Written stories about people doing it.

According to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erotic_literature that other wiki]], Erotic Lit has been around since the time of Literature/TheBible. This just means that even way back when, people still wanted to read about other people doing it.

Although it's like [[UsefulNotes/{{Pornography}} porn]], E. Lit can be educational. One of the most famous examples is the ''Literature/KamaSutra'', which is full of information about people doing it. (With a brief foray into cryptography and other methods of concealing your salacious affairs.)

Modern day books tend to deal with the emotional side of sex and sexuality--but really, it's mostly about people doing it. Some of these stories have also been [[EroticFilm adapted to film]].
