The Uses of Erotic Poetry
This is a great article on Erotic Poetry, in which the writer asks the question: “Is poetry something we come to be civilised by or is it a place where we go to unleash our desires and to hear them echoed?” I didn’t even blink before answering this in my head, because for me it’s always been the latter.
I write erotic poetry to explore my own sexuality, but also, to understand and celebrate human sexuality in general. Writing poetry helps me to put into words something that often times defies words, yet begs to be explored.
