Erotic fiction stories are one of the most indulgent yet easy ways to get yourself in the mood for sex or masturbation. There’s just something so stirring about letting your mind wander with a bit of erotic escapism – sexual arousal begins in the brain, after all.
Yep, good old Mills & Boon-style saucy stories, updated for the modern day. Using your imagination, you can get swept up in a whole host of different scenarios, from bodice rippers to werewolf adventures to just plain old steamy shower sex. But where, we hear you ask, are you going to find this free and – actually hot – erotica online? Well…we know a place (or two, or three).
Keep reading for our round up of the best sites for finding erotica online.
Where to find the best erotica online
Best erotic fiction stories online – Cosmopolitan UK
Did you think we’d miss this opportunity for a bit of self-promotion? Of course not! On this very site we have some excellent (if we say so ourselves) sexy stories and even a whole load of lesbian erotica for those of the sapphic persuasion.
Some of our faves?
- “Fresh Start”: a scintillating, summer-y story about passionate embraces on Spanish beaches and the sexual tension of fancying your BFF…
- “Comings and Goings”: an impromptu lesbian hookup in an airport leads to some spontaneous bathroom fun.
- “Find Me”: a historical and, yes, extremely saucy tale exploring love, lust and criminals on the run.
Best erotic fiction stories online – Bellesa
Bellesa might ring a bell as a new gen, woman-owned porn company. Starting in 2017, it now runs a monthly subscription service (like Netflix, but with porn) and it’s since branched out into loooads of different sex stuff: sex ed articles, a hilarious Instagram and sex toys beloved by celebs like Cardi B and Demi Lovato, who teamed up with Bellesa to release a gender neutral vibe. Naturally, Bellesa has also jumped into the erotica game with a huge range of stories which are also available in podcast form for any audio porn fans out there.
Some of our faves?
- “Waking Up”: an *extremely* horny morning masturbation session leads to some shower fun and an unexpected bed fellow.
- “The Upper Hand”: a sapphic fisting scene that puts consent, pleasure and communication at the forefront.
Best erotic fiction stories online – Sugarbutch Chronicles
Sugarbutch Chronicles has been running for the past 16 years and is full of queer-centred, erotic short stories courtesy of Mx Sinclair Sexsmith (they/them), a sex writer and author who Autostraddle referred to as: “the best-known butch erotica writer whose kinky, groundbreaking stories have turned on countless queer women.”
Alongside lots of amazing sex stories written by Sexsmith and a handful of trusted contributors, there are poems, strap-on reviews…everything you could want, really.
Some of our faves?
- “Climax”: A guest post recounting a solo session and an orgasmic climax in delicious detail.
Best erotic fiction stories online – Libida
Libida is a female-focussed sex shop which has been in the vibrator business since all the way back in 1998. Their MO is to provide a sex-toy-shopping experience which is rich in education and will help you make a safe, informed and sexy choice. As such, they’ve also got plenty of free material to feed your fantasies: from sex ed and advice on sexual health to spicy erotica.
Some of our faves?
- “Pottery Yarn”: A short story involving a clay dildo (don’t try this at home, folks) and a *hot* potter roomate, you can put the rest together, we’re sure.
- “Incubus”: Yep, it’s some vampire porn…if you were into Twilight back in the day, this might be one for you…
Best erotic fiction stories online –Remittance Girl
Remittance Girl writes a lot of erotic stories and uploads them to her website for us to read for free. She handily describes what erotic content each story contains so you can seek out something that really turns you on (and avoid any potential triggers). Her stories cover all fetishes from straight male/female sex, to BDSM and masturbation.
The above are our fave erotica sites and while other sources for erotic fiction or erotica online might have a higher volume of content, they may not be as regulated or have as high moderation standards: so be warned. However, if you’re a dab-hand at thrifting and have a keen eye for erotica, check out the below: you may well be in your element…
Best erotic fiction stories online – Bookrix
You can download free erotic fiction from Bookrix, and as they’re ebooks, you don’t have the deal with the achey tired hand from holding a massive tome. From various adult story writers, you can choose from a short piece of fiction of a few thousand words, to a longer, more intense erotic read.
Best erotic fiction stories online – Literotica
This is essentially a huge catalogue of erotica, covering every erotic base from celebrity fiction to first time sexual encounters. Literotica will require you to create an account and log in, but it’s worth it for the endless stories. Beware, it can feel like finding a needle in a haystack because there is so much content. But choosing a category you’re into will narrow down your search.
