Valentine's Day is coming, but what if you like your erotica a little naughty?
Erotic Tales of Pleasure & Pain
I love to read good erotica, and even dabble in writing a bit myself. Searching WDC for erotica contests I found that most are monthly, or even weekly contests, with small prizes. I wanted to do something a little different. Pleasure & Pain will be an annual contest offering big prizes! I am hoping this will encourage longer more complete works of erotica. YES I am referring to erotica with a plot or purpose!! While I love a gratuitious romp as well as the next person, I really enjoy an erotic tail ... err... tale that at least takes a stab at character development and description of more than just body parts.

As I said above, all entries must have a creation date of 01/01/2012 or later. Entries that do not follow this guideline will be disqualified.
I think that technical errors should make a difference in the judging of contests. It is part of both the competition aspect and the craft of writing. While I look for stories that capture my attention and draw me in, I do look at the technical merits as well. Taking the time to polish your story shows not only your talant, but pride in your work.

Second Place: 50k ribbon & an erotica merit badge.
Third Place: 25k ribbon & an erotica merit badge.
