Dinosaur Erotica is one of the hot new trends in publishing this year and is starting to catch on with a large female audience. The genre is fairly easy to read and digest because they are primarily short stories, about 20 pages in length.
The vast majority of the stories are all published via Kindle Direct Publishing and are available in the e-book format. You might want to check out “Taken by the Pterodayctl,” “Taken by the T-Rex,” and “Taken at the Dinosaur Museum.”
The Huffington Post asked Alara Branwen, coauthor of several dinosaur erotica books, about what she felt the appeal of fantasy dino-sex was. “I think it’s because dinosaur erotica appeals to our more base, carnal natures,” she said. “Some people also probably like the idea of a big, powerful, massive male roughly having sex with a smaller female. It’s like the ultimate sexual experience with an alpha male, which is something that we are all inherently wired to enjoy.”
Media and cultural studies professor Clarissa Smith, an editor of the publication Porn Studies, says: “There are a number of pleasures potentially on offer here – the fact that this is really fantasy. Even if there is evidence that dinosaurs existed, we don’t know masses about them, and they have mythological qualities. The idea of having sex with one is outside the realms of possibility. It’s a bit like ‘magic’, where all rules become suspended, and for that reason it may well allow … for kinds of imaginative risk-taking impossible in more standard couplings.”
