It is well documented that the language of sex is overused--to write or shoot film about sex involves the all-but-impossible task of turning a whore into a virgin. Pubic hair, swollen, throbbing, lemony juices, ample breasts, entered, plunged, triangle, shaft … a complete list of sex clichés would fill a ream of paper and leave the would-be writer little wiser about how to avoid making more clichés. Unlike pornography, which construes all human relations in terms of sex, and unlike genteel sex writing, which displays semblances of emotions and a degree of lyricism and literary ambition at the boundary where romanticism loses its ideals and hangs momentarily between redemption and corruption, the best writing and film making about sex (literotica) rests firmly on scenes that offer perceptive, erotic characterizations of conflicts, hopes, desires, illusions, struggles for power, and other intricacies between lovers. Literary depiction of sex depends not on sex itself but on eros... providing ample pleasures, both aesthetic and erotic.
