two on erotic content

2006-04-07 17:09:20.681253+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Two on erotic entertainment this morning. Erotica finds home in mainstream publishing and Online games replace monsters with sex. The first just talks a bit about the rise of publishers of book form erotica, and how those stories have found homes in large chain bookstores, the second has a little bit of the "giggle, snerk" factor that keeps me from thinking any of the specific companies they talk about are actually going to break this market, but I think we'll see some inroads in the less directed MMORPGs soon.

Heh. I intend to check out Naughty America when and if it ever launches, but I don't expect great things. If they do get an audience it is going to have to come from the mostly online-game-naive, because so far the comments from the people who already play a lot of MMORPGS and such (at least as reflected in various game forums lately) have been "what is the point?"

On the other hand, this may be a thing where the lady doth protest too much and many of these people will be secretly sneaking off to find some cyber on the side.

Personally I have given up on the idea of decent online sexual chat, with or without the pretty pictures, for the simple reason that online sex is a verbal medium and the participants are, by and large, not up to it. I have tried, many times, and for the most part unless you find the one-in-a-thousand playmate, it just don't happen.
