Summary

We live in a world where erotica is considered a taboo.Erotic writing is considered a taboo in many parts of the world.We need to choose a pen name to publish erotic writing to protect ourselves from public humiliation.I wonder what is indecent in writing about a natural subject which is common and normal among all living things.

SEX

This is a subject which I request all the lovely people of the booksie community to introspect.I request you to be open minded while reading this article and dont be biased or judgemental about this subject.

Few years ago a friend of mine brought a pair of rabbit kitten.They were so lovely.They were so young that they could hardly open their eyes.One was a buck and the other was a doe, which is the other name for a male and a female rabbit.As these kitten were too young I had to feed them cow milk though vet bottle nipples,which  I bought from a local vet store.They were hardly 10 days old when they became a part of my family.

It was surprising to me that they learnt things very fast.Just a few days into our home and they were already hopping out of the nest area and stumble upon loosing balance.They were the cutest and most adorable creatures I had ever seen.After about 15 weeks they got into doing all sorts of nonsense.They would tear apart newspapers and litter all over the place.

Just a few weeks later we realised that the doe was pregnant.I confirmed it with the vet and took all the precautions necessary to make this phase easy for her.A month later she gave birth to 5 adorable kitten.

This story looks pretty normal right??

THINK....

Do you remember I told you that the kitten were only about 10 days old when they were brought to my house.They could hardly  open their eyes then.They were caged in a box in the garden.I am pretty sure there is no way there were any other animals around them.They grew up and and procreated without anyone having to teach them about the process.Who taught the first form of human beings to have sex? There's no one. So sex is a natural phenomenon which is common among all living things and need not be taught.It is a part of our existence without which even we could not have existed.Even plants cannot procreate without pollinating.

Having made this point I would want to speak about the contradictions which are rather limited to the human race.We are encouraged watch science channels.We don't mind watching a hippo or a giraffe or a lioness being humped ,shown on these channels.We don't find anything abnormal while watching our dog humping a bitch on the street.That would rather go un noticed. On the other hand imagine you saw a boy and a girl having sex at the same place.What would you feel?,what would be your reaction?  I'm pretty sure you'd rather feel awful and disgusted. In both the cases the situation, circumstances and the process occuring is the same.But the way we perceive them are different.Its all about the way we think. Now how would you look at this? Would you call the couple having public sex  insane or would you call yourself a pervert for staring at them?We ourselves have created boundaries for ourselves,which I feel are rather un necessary.Boundaries in which sex does not exist at all.

We have been made to think that sex is a very sensitive subject.That is why we have made it a big deal.In the case of my pets,the buck and the doe were rather siblings which produced their offspring.But would we accept a physical relationship between a brother and a sister in our society.No.. right? Thats why I told you the fault is in ourselves and the way we think. We consider ourselves superior to other living things. But the truth is that our superiority is only limited to our intelligence.But we have only used it to create boundaries which snatch away our freedom to be ourselves.

Mabe it is partly due to our religious belief and the teaching has been imparted to us by our ancestors which we blindly follow. Today we have learnt to question things,see things differently but the matter of sex is untouched in most societies ,largely due to the fear of adverse reaction from the public.Did you know that it is the most conservative societies in the world that have the majority of worlds population.If the society thinks that sex is taboo then how come they became so populated.Children don't grow on trees or fall from the sky. Isnt this a contradiction that the most unromantic societies produce the highest number of babies.?

  This is exactly the reason why sex has to become a mainstream topic.I agree there are many other topics like health,politics,education that are more important , but totally neglecting and side lining of sex from general topics and treating it as "un important and disgusting" could be disastrous.I know most of the readers of this article online are from the developed countries of the west but if you see the situation in under develped or developing nations you would be shocked.People are killed for even talking about the subject in certain regions.Chastity is a big deal and losing virginity before marriage could even lead to death.You would also feel surprised that young boys and girls are even killed by their own parents for "disgracing" them by having a physical relationship outside marriage or before marriage.

  We should rather be thankful that we are born in a society which is comparitively liberal. But we are not open minded enough to digest the topic of sex.Could you ever think of telling your parents or the society in general about taking up erotic writing or pornography as your career.? Are you brave enough to openly publish your erotic or pornographic work with your real name on it?No social networking encourages expression of sexual nature.I'm not supporting nudity in these sites as these sites are accessed by all age groups, but at least erotic writing could be excused.

Do you consider erotic writing and pornography as different subjects?.I would rather call them different forms of the same art.One involves seductive writing and the other involves imagery but both are intended for sexual graification.Then why do we see "pornstars" as filthy people? As a matter of fact I feel "free sex" is necessary in a society. I told you dont be judgemental. I actually feel this can to some extent remove the social evils such as abuse and rape.I'll tell you why. I want to ask you a question.What is the root cause of rape and abuse? It is to a large extent a person being devoid of sexual gratification who does such henious crime.  Sexual emotion is the most powerful of all forms in a living being and this emotion needs an outlet, just like crying when you are hurt or laughing when you are happy.Now if you forcefully stop an emotion from having an outlet , it can lead to unusual or phychotic behavior in a human being.That is why we need to stop forcing ourselves or others to stay away from healthy sexual relationship or expression according to ones wish or taste.

  Coming to the point of view of an erotic writing, it is sad that some people term it as "cheap" or  "filthy".Like different forms of dance or different genres of music even erotic writing is a form of art. It is also one of the difficult ones as it requires putting up of complex emotions and feeling or experiences in the form of words.Erotic writing is actually a very pleasurable form of art where the writer as well as the reader actually feel the events and emotions flowing with the story.Erotic writing is not merely putting across a sex act. Then that would mean that all erotic stories would mean the same without a difference, with the same beginning and the same end.Erotic writing is more than that It involves putting across emotions, feeling,romance ,explaining the intricate feeling of pleasure and pain in a balanced manner as it occurs in a sex act.

 Erotic writing is a form of literature which we can easily connect to.The storylines can be easily felt and related to our own life.Its the only form of art which we can fantasize about and put ourselves in it.This is because at some point in time we would have or will rather be experiencing it ourselves.While reading an erotic story we will ourselves be in a rather mentally sensual relationship with the writer or the character we fit ourselves to.This in  not possible in other forms of literature.This is exactly why people will never get bored reading  erotic literature.

It is rare thet we find people capable of explaining a sex act.It needs guts to expose your rather private life to the public and make it enjoyable without being disgraced.I am not saying that erotic writing is completely flawless.It does have a few short comings.We as erotic writers should be responsible enough not to de- mean the character of a particular person by exposing his/her identity.Erotic writing should have a higher content of romance and feeling of love between the characters in the script. Another shortcoming is the lack of respect to women and treating them as a sex toy even in stories.It is important to bear in mind that people get influnced by art and literature.So we need to be careful that we express erotism without being vulgur , in the sense that all characters have their share of self respect without putting across a message of people being used in a notorious manner.

Last but not the least I would conclude that we the family of booksie silk writers should be proud of ourselves and the  work that we publish online.Most of us are hobbyists, so we should not quit writing these amazing works of art.We have to work towards having a society where people are open minded about erotic literature and sex in general.We should make sure that we promote our literature in all regions and make our literature available to the largest audience through social networking and other online platforms.

WE WERE BORN NAKED.

WE LEAVE NAKED.

THAT IS HOW IT IS MEANT TO BE.

THEN WHY BE SHY IN BETWEEN?

LETS BE PROUD INSTEAD. 

With LOVE from JIMMY.
