Erotic Fiction Genre – What’s the best definition for the erotic fiction genre? The erotic fiction book genre is made up of books that present the sexual aspects of love front and center. The books in the erotic genre have subtle sexual innuendo up to explicit descriptions of sexual acts. They also contain taboo elements of sexual fantasy, homosexuality, sado-masochism, and fetishes. The stories are designed to arouse the reader by feeding and expanding their personal sexual fantasies.

Sometimes the erotic genre and romance genre can be crossed over and confused, as some romance has strong sexual content and scenes. Also, the erotic genre often contains love and a happy ending, making it seem like taboo romance. To tell the difference, one should keep in mind that explicitly detailed sexual scenes can bump a romance into the erotic genre.
