The sensuality of erotica has never been more so available than it is today. In 2020, us vulva owners are owning our sexy imagination and embracing our erotic side to fire up our desire! Exploring fantasies, writing about them, reading sex stories and listening to sweet nothings in our ears – there are plenty of ways to fulfil our fancies and combine our creative minds with sexual pleasure.
Using our sensual imagination stimulates our emotional want for sex; aka our desire. Erotic content can help awaken the sexual senses and help with arousal. Arousal is the body’s physiological changes, such as vaginal lubrication, erect nipples and engorged clitoris, in reaction to sexual stimuli. Giving our pleasure its full potential through recognising and giving space for our sexual fantasies is a great way to look after our sexual wellbeing from the inside out.

Just like some of our vibrators, these sex stories are based upon real fantasies and written by the people that dream them up. From lockdown lust to sexy poems, our free erotica is out in the open on our blog for you to discover!
Want something that is easy on the eyes? For some visual stimulation that does good for the world, head to Erika Lust. The erotic film director makes woman-centric porn that is ethically made, and raises money for charities to ensure support for people working in the online adult industry.

Talking of crowdsourcing, did you know that at Smile Makers we also collect erotic submissions? Whether you have a fantasy you’d like to be turned into a written or audio piece, or have already penned an erotic story you’d like to share, we want to hear from you!
Imagination is a form of escapism – and we think 2020 could do with a little more of that. Enjoy our erotic picks!
Historically, pornography is not something that women were thought to enjoy. With males leading the creation and viewing of porn, women who took part in this industry were often given degrading roles.
