Erotica or Smut...what is the difference?

I have been writing a lot of what I am calling erotica...I suppose there is a specific definition to separate erotica from smut but really, I think it just comes down to language and persuasions rather than coercions. I might tie you up at your request and that would be erotica but if I crudely chain you to the wall and leave you there, that is more likely smut, of course, if my mama was reading any of it she would consider it smut. I mean, just discussing the licking of one's nipples in casual conversation would make her want to change the subject so she might not be fond of any of it.

I will say that we do agree that the sexiest scene in any movie ever is when Clark Gable carried Vivian Leigh up the stairs in "Gone With The Wind." No one had to spell out what was going to happen but we were all having hot flashes. Talk about erotic! Whew!

Moving on from GWTW to modern day erotica, there has to be a line and it can't just be language because I see plenty of strong language in literary fiction so I guess I need to get on Google to see if what I am writing is in lines with true erotica and that I am not crossing into some dark terrain where my words would be seen as more menacing than I mean for them to be.

In the meantime, what I am writing is HOT and makes me break out in a sweat. It could be because it is July but I am hoping it is because the words on the page are that powerful. We shall see!

Ciao,
