Is there a better way to wind down on a Friday night than with a glass of wine and a sexy read? Enter: erotic novels. Unlike a steamy film or video, erotic novels tend to have quite a lot more story development and sensual build up before the R-rated moments, and because you get to imagine the scenes playing out, you have more control over how the fantasy looks. Erotica is a great way to get yourself in the mood for masturbation or sex, both of which have major health benefits. And frankly, it's just fun to read.

 

If you’re new to erotica, the top-rated books on Amazon are a great place to start. And even if sexy novels are already your go-to, check out the crowd-pleasers below—you may just find a new addition to your bookshelf.
