8 Online Erotica Sites Like Literotica You'll Love If You Want Some Sexy Reads

Fantasies can be your best sexual experiences because the only limit is your imagination. Luckily, when your imagination goes blank, online erotica sites like Literotica can light the spark. Erotic literature and art is meant to arouse sexual desire, and it can give you some fun ideas for the bedroom or even just be fun reading when the mood is right. With the help of online erotica, you can turn boring mediocre sex into a mind-blowing event. It’s like a portable vibrator for your mind. Yep, just think about that for a second.

These eight steamy websites similar to the famous Literotica will stimulate the sexiest organ in your body: your mind. And there's a little something for all kinds of sexual tastes, whether you like things tame or totally out there. Of course, I have to put the caveat out there that for most of these websites you have to be 18 and up — so, I guess you younger folks will just have to learn about sex from old romance novels found in your basement, just like I did. Don't worry, your time will come.

So, go ahead, get under the covers and get cozy, and pull up your computer. There's a lot of reading — and heavy breathing — to do.

1. LushStories

Part social media, part database, all erotica. This site boasts a wide range of stories from a wide range of people. Like College Sex? They have it. Enjoy a good historical romp? Oh, it's there. More into poetry? Well, Lord Byron, I'm impressed that you came back from the dead, but don't worry they have that too. Once you've exhausted all of that (and probably yourself) you can head on into the chat rooms, and talk to like-minded individuals... if you're into that sort of thing.

2. The Erotic Woman

This multi-platform site also comes with a sexy gallery just in case words aren't enough (but, of course, words will be enough). Not exactly as organized as other sites, the reads are nevertheless sexy. Come for the erotic stories, but stay for the polls, The Erotic Woman is 100 percent free, but you can donate if you're impressed by the business.

3. Alt.Sex.Text Repository

Free, user supported, and with the added bonus of having one of the most hilariously dry names for an erotica website ever. Alt.Sex.Text Repository is interesting in that the site suggests that those under the age of 21 need not apply. It seems as though the process of publishing stories on the site is a little complicated, but reading it is simple enough! This site is notable for curating their own anthologies, which you can read in their own special section.

4. True Dirty Stories

Love erotica, but don't think it satisfies your voyeuristic needs? Solve that by having all the stories be true! At True Dirty Stories, users submit their own sexy tales. Helpfully sorted by category, you can find whatever your looking for, as long as it's (mostly) true. Why not be bold and submit one yourself?

5. Nifty.org

If you're reading this going "well, this is all great and stuff, but where is my erotica site that caters to the LGBT community specifically?", don't even worry about it, my friend, Nifty.org is here for you. This site has all the normal fetish categories that you traditionally see on an erotica website (celebrity, historical, exhibitionist, et al), but focusing entirely on LGBT.

6. fetstories.com

This spartan site is probably the safest for work you're going to find (if you're the type who likes to read erotica at work...you do you!) fetstories is relatively new to the game, launching in March of this year. It has a sleek web design, and already tons of stories to read, spread out over the usual categories. This is also a good site to submit to if you want to break into the game.

7. BDSM Cafe

For those who enjoy more flavors than simple vanilla, the BDSM Cafe can satisfy all of your kinky needs, so long as they entail Bondage, Discipline, Sadism, and Masochism. The BDSM Cafe is not only a sexy archive for anything from novels to short stories, it also provides valuable research for those interested in breaking into the lifestyle. Whether you're kinky and proud, or simply curious, check it out!

8. adult-fanfiction.org

I'm not here to judge you, but this is absolutely the place to go for all of your sexy fandom needs. Often organized by fandom (and then by pairing), this is the place to go if you're the kind of person who loves to picture Gandalf gettin' down (sorry for that mental image... everyone else). Think your proclivities are a little too specific? You'd be surprised. Plus, there's a crossover section.
