Is M/M Slash Like Pseudo-Lesbian Porn Produced for Straight Men?|
Just because there is no explicit sex doesn't mean the fic isn't sexual in nature. Some fic skips over the sex scenes themselves, but still manages to be incredibly arousing for me. Hell, sometimes there is no sex, skipped or otherwise, but the relationship aspects totally get me hot. They might even turn me on more than a sex scene. If I get the feeling that this erotic effect is intentional on the part of the writer, and if that effect seems like the main thrust of the story, then I class the story as "erotica" even if it lacks explicit sex.
Not all slash is erotica, but when I go looking for slash to read, I'm mainly looking for the erotica.
