I run noveltrove.com, an online community that revolves around free erotic stories. I for one would like to stress that neither written nor aural erotica have disappeared, or are on the way out. I believe that, due to fast/cheap internet connections visual "erotica" has captured its natural market share and today serves the audience who has always preferred visual over written/audio. In other words, in the past many had only/mainly access to written materials and thus its popularity was not based on preference but on availability.

On the other hand, there are a lot of people who enjoy reading and/or listening to erotic materials, it's just less "mainstream" today.

Personally I would like to stress that for many reading is much more mentally stimulating than watching. It allows you to create your own inner images. Just like our website says: "Erotic stories for well-endowed brains".

Besides, writing and recording gives people an outlet to not only consume, but also to produce and to be creative on an "above-visual", very personal and sensual level.

I might not be the big cheese Silicon Valley guy, but we are planning to start and boost our audio section soon. To the moon! Anyone who would like to reply to my message, please feel free to directly send me a message to info &%"§$! noveltrove.com

Cheers,
Arti
