Erotic sex stories, literotica, porn prose: whatever you call it, there’s nothing wrong with indulging in some racy reading every now and then – particularly as it can lead to a better time in between the sheets.

Don’t believe us? Our claims are backed by science: women who read erotica have a jaw dropping 74 percent more sex with their partner than those who don’t (according toThe Journal of Sex Research). And, not only are they having more sex, they’re having better sex. This is all as a result of indulging in some risqué reading, as women are more likely to be adventurous and playful with their partner in the bedroom.

While having hotter sex is obviously fabulous, we’ve put together four other reasons why you should be reading erotic sex stories.

#1- It creates a delicious connection between the mind and the body

Of course, reading goes hand in hand with the imagination, but did you know that this has particular benefits when reading erotic sex stories? It even has an academic term: bibliotherapy.

Bibliotherapy describes the deliciously delightful mind and body reactions that take place from reading sexy stories. It only takes 30 to 45 minutes of reading erotic sex stories for a chemical reaction to be triggered in the female brain, which leads to increased arousal. Think of it as the perfect aphrodisiac.

In fact, some sex therapists are even recommending that their patients regularly read erotica to help ignite couples’ sex drives. Well, if it’s what the doctor ordered…

#2 – It allows you to to indulge your fantasies and experience hotter sex

If you’ve ever fantasised about being in a luxury New York penthouse apartment and having hot, steamy stand up sex against the window then erotica can help bring those fantasies to life (well, unless you have a real Christian Grey on speed dial). Fantasies allow us to forget any anxieties, making us less inhibited and more in tune with our pleasure.

Plus, reading such stories is a brilliant way to explore your fantasies and get some tips along the way. The same study from The Journal of Sex Research found that women who frequently fantasise partake in a wider variety of erotic activities and have more fun in bed because sex stories allow you to shed your inhibitions, feel more confident, and get creative.

#3 – You can find out what really works to reach orgasm (from the sexperts)

Just as reading erotic sex stories can give you some tips and allow you to reenact certain scenarios, it can also give you some new ideas that you’ll want to try at home with yourself. How? Because the authors of these stories haven’t just plucked these ideas out of thin air. They’ve done their research and know how the female body works.

So, picking up a naughty book is definitely recommended if you’re looking for new ways to explore your own sensuality and head straight to O-town. It’ll be devilishly fun, we promise.

#4 – It’s a mood booster

There’s no way that picking up a sex story will leave you feeling sad and depressed. Erotic sex stories will always have a happy ending (and yes, we do mean that kind of happy ending).

 

Plus, it’s guaranteed to put you in the mood for the real thing. Dr. Susan Kellogg, a medical sexologist, states that women are more easily aroused when they have a ‘library’ of erotic literature to refer back to. She also says that reading erotic sex stories has a general psychological effect: fantasising releases chemicals like dopamine and testosterone, which promotes happiness. So, what are you waiting for? Get reading and unleash your sexual desire.
