I'm looking for a collection of stories specifically about sexual awakening and discovery as a gift for a friend. He likes them pretty graphic (many of mine are 'too literary' for his taste). Any suggestions?
Most actual collections I've found are too 'literary' so I've stuck to reading works by a single author at a time. I particularly like novels that aren't classified as erotic fiction, like Kushiel's Dart & series, The Story of O was pretty good (and even has an illustrated version I'm willing to part with), and I know there are others in my library... I'm brain dead at the moment so I'll post later when I'm either a.) not at work or b.) able to think without bursting a blood vessel. ;)
He's not into bondage (nor am I), which I know completely narrows the options. I'm probably just going to have to read a slew of explicit erotica to find what I'm looking for. Oh, well ;)
He may like "Venus in Furs". I think "literary" is what separates erotica from porn or smut fiction.
Most recently within the past two months I have joined FACEBOOK and found a group page called Mindspired where You could post your original erotica stories.However they insist that You use correct grammar style and punctuation.Writers like myself that use library computers whose programs dont allow me to indent new paragraphs looks more like a page from a Kerouac novel.

Try Anny Dixon, Loving Leo. It's pretty hot!
As far as sexual awakenings go, you can't beat Philosophy in the Bedroom or Juliette by DAF Sade. They are both incredibly graphic yet have literary cache. The best of both worlds.
The first volume of Storm Constantine's Wraeththu is also worth a look.
And then there's Story of O by Pauline Reage and Story of The Eye by Georges Bataille.
