Oxford dictionary of literary terms, c2008 (Erotica: the collective term for materials of an erotic nature, and particularly for prose or verse narratives of sexual fantasy ranging from explicitly pornographic novels to jocular poems on sexual subjects, whether or not these are illustrated pictorially. Since the 1960s, written texts have been not only less subject to sexual censorship but increasingly marginal to the image-dominated pornography industry proper: so that fiction that would once have counted as pornographic is now called erotica, and more than ever marketed in anthologies addressed to lesbians and heterosexual women as well as to men.)
