10 great erotic British films
Erotic literature comprises fictional and factual stories and accounts of eros — passionate, romantic or sexual relationships — intended to arouse similar feelings in readers,  in contrast to erotica , which focuses more specifically on sexual feelings. Erotic literature can take the form of novels, short stories, poetry , true-life memoirs , and sex manuals. A common feature of the genre is sexual fantasies on such themes as prostitution , orgies , sadomasochism , and many other taboo subjects and fetishes , which may or may not be expressed in explicit language.
Sex scenes are nearly as old as movies themselves. In fact, one of the first films to be screened for the public debuted in and was called The Kiss. It was quite steamy for its time, featuring a full-on brushing of the lips, which, let us tell you, really riled up the modest-minded folks of the late 19th century. These days, a sex scene has to shock for us to consider it among the greatest sex scenes of all time. It has to make us laugh riotously, recoil in disgust, squirm at the weirdness, or at the very least, rewatch it repeatedly because it's just so damn hot.
