Sexy stories, erotica, erotic romance and literotic… what’s in a name?
The Good Bits was established to showcase great erotic writing by women and diverse voices, as well as to profile the writers who have refined this craft. To us, a good sexy story isn’t about the kinks or quirks of each fantasy. We believe that well-crafted stories can spark desire by stimulating your imagination.
What makes a good sex story?
- Nothing icky
No incest, no under-age, no animals. (It sounds basic, huh?)
Whether implicit or explicit, consent is a must.
The best sexy stories leave something for your imagination—sometimes what authors choose not to say is as important as what they do.
Complex, badly articulated logistics really break the mood.
- Word choice
Great writers are able to select words to describe anatomy or function that keep you in the story, rather than making you feel weird or grossed out.
Real sex can be intense, playful, fun or funny, and so should good sexy stories.
We hope this gives you some insight into our selection process. We hope you enjoy our curated good sex stories from some of the world’s best selling authors. If you’d like your story included on our site, check out our submissions guidelines.
