I am a Christian and I write Erotica.

Some people really have a problem getting their mind around this fact. I have to say that generally my friends in the erotica writing community have accepted it without much trouble, I am saddened to say that the Christians in my life haven't always been so accepting.



I accidentally came out to my vicar about a year ago. How? Well read this post to find out the details. It all went surprisingly well until I got the follow up talk some months later that led to an interesting revelation which you can read about here. Lady Gaga's song Born this Way now has a very dear place in my heart.

It all came to a head earlier this summer when the church council denied me a position simply because of what I wrote. You can read more here but unsurprisingly I was very upset. I ended up leaving that church and am currently looking for a place which will accept me for what I am instead of despite it.

It's been a rollercoaster but you know, I am so glad it happened because I have found so many supportive Christians who read or write erotica themselves. Yep, there's a fair few of us out there and the messages of support I've had from these folks have made such a difference to my life.

So, I am starting my own community for people who love God and love Erotica and Erotic Romance too.  I've opened a yahoo group, a facebook group and a pinterest board.  It's early days but I'm hoping to bring together people who like me feel isolated in their church because of something they read/write or in fact anyone who feels they have to pretend to be something they're not when they're in church.

I've had a thread over at the literotica.com boards for years for Christian Writers and Readers  and time after time I've been blessed by the interactions there.

So I'm hoping in 12 months time to come back and tell you about my vibrant group of readers and writers of erotica who also happen to love God. I really think there's a need for such a community. It's really awful that so many people feel isolated by the church. Jesus told us to love our neighbours as ourselves. That means everyone, not just the folks we approve of.  I hope to encourage more tolerance, to bring together like-minded people and have some fun. Maybe even change a few minds.

If any of you would like to be involved, then please join up at whichever group suits you best. All welcome!

Hear hear. I'm also a Christian who writes erotic romance and I'm not ashamed of either.

Hi Victoria. I'm a Christian and read/write erotica, too. My husband calls it smut but he is also very proud of me.

My parents are over the moon when it comes to my writing. Shoot, my mom gave me my first "dirty" book when I was a teenager...Sandra Brown's "Lucky". People had sex in it. He He!

Anyway...you are not alone. We go to church on Sunday, active in the community and church.

I have also joined the FB group and Yahoo group.

I don't like closed minded people. Are we still living in the Dark Ages?

Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was
extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying
your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for novice blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?
