Do Men or Women Write Better Erotica?

Female Erotica Editor Says Men Write Better Sex

The debate over who can pen a better ménages à trois tale became an audible argument this week when British magazine Erotic Review named Kate Copstick its editor. It's an interesting choice, because she doesn't think women write erotica particularly well. Women, she told BBC's Radio 4, "have an agenda, they complicate sex, they make layers, it’s conditional."

Maybe she's just telling it like it is and that's why she's editing an erotic magazine, but if anything I'd say women are more likely to prefer erotica by women. Or maybe she's trying to compensate for the womanly touch she'll bring. (Porn will not go soft on her watch!) She ensured that by saying she'd seek male writers so the magazine won't be "drowned in estrogen."

Perhaps it's all just a publicity stunt. After all, isn't it about the finished product and not who wrote it? Who ever said women can't write about sex? Besides Kate Copstick (Copstick!).
