Highbrow erotica

Barbara Cartland, the grand old dame of English romance, made a career out of leaving her readers outside the bedroom door. A new breed of women writers, however, is inviting them in to swing from the lampshade and anything else that grabs their fancy - wherever and with whoever they fancy - provided it is all in the best possible taste.
More from Jonathan Brown in The Independent.
And...what is the difference between erotica and pornography? One memorable description has it that in erotica you use a feather while in pornography the whole damn chicken gets roped in.

  1. The comment from Mr.Brown has me laughing! I think is definition is a tad narrow, it might not be the whole damn chicken, but erotica is using more than one feather.
