I totally agree! Erotica isn't porn! It's another type of art! :)

I don't know... let's take a quick look at the dictionary definitions and see...

pornography: The portrayal of sexual subject matter for the purpose of sexual arousal.

erotica: L
iterature or art intended to arouse sexual desire.

hate to be the bearer of bad news but, it looks like they kind of are... =/ at least from the prospective of the English language, I get what your saying,

one is "art" while the other is cheap kicks.

I don't care. Both can be done beautifully, and both genres can suffer from newbie artists or writers. Frankly I'm more interested in the difference as this site sees it, what's allowed here and what's not.

Absolutely! I have been thinking of trying to write a good basic guideline for what is erotic and what is not. I'm tired of seeing porn and rape-fantasy-bondage-whatever labeled as erotic. I enjoy well done erotic and erotica art and thank you for the stamp!

When nudity is freely accepted as normal, when a woman go go around topless and when nude beaches are in abundance, I might agree. But with modern society the naked body = porn. I wish this was true, I agree with it when it comes to my own eyes, I can look at a naked body and see beauty and not sex, but most can't. Still it's nice to dream about a world where I could run around naked. Sorry I associate this and similar debate to the acceptance to nudity, or lack there of.

Good Luck with your endeavors.

Oooh, I like this! I love erotica, but usually can't stand porn. There is definitely a difference.

:iconlerdagainststupidity:
Good stamp. In case there's still people out there confused the difference is that porn is specifically designed to cause sexual arousal. Erotica deals with sexual material so therefore one can't help but be aroused by it at times. However it captures the spirituality of sex and sexuality. It is meant to elicit emotional as well as physical responses. Porn on the other hand is entirely physical. There's nothing wrong with porn but there is a difference,. Hoped that help clear things up.

Pornography

Sexually explicit pictures, writing, or other material whose primary purpose is to cause sexual arousal.

Erotica

Sexually oriented material that is not considered "pornographic" to the viewer.

Wow, its really hard to tell the difference. xD

pornography |pôrˈnägrəfē|
noun
printed or visual material containing the explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity, intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings.

erotica |iˈrätikə|
noun
literature or art intended to arouse sexual desire.

You can have erotica without mentioning sex.

I had only made one comment. I could understand if it was a series of comments, but not after just one. The main difference between erotica and porn is that erotica is dominated by women where as porn is dominated by men. Things can be erotica without sex.

I was not making an attempt to harass you nor have I harassed anyone on the site; you might be mistaking me with someone else or I fucked up years ago.

Erotica... isn't porn??

I can understand it if you said nudity isn't always porn, but erotica by any definition is porn... It could be more artistic than general "lookatthosehugetits!!!" porn or whatever, but it's still porn...

The human body is a thing of beauty. I believe images of bare chests (men and women) can make for some of the most beautiful art, so long as the emphesis isn't on how sexy the chest looks, but rather the fact they're a natural part of the body.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Thanks for the differentiation. I try to tell people about this and they all give me that ten thousand yard stare. Two nights ago TCM had a documentary called Thou Shalt Not, chronicling the turbulent pre-code period in Hollywood (1929-1934). There was tons of sex, nudity and erotica, done without the pornographic angle. I can have my fantasies with these films and not with the boring sex of porn. No plot, no buildup, no good looking anybody. I like your stamp. And you have my stamp of approval!
