A Charter for Erotic Fiction or Manifesto, if you will

whereas erotic fiction is the production and creation of fiction with sex as its central theme, whether the desire for sex, the sex act itself, the delayed gratification of sex for the purposes of arousal of the reader, where arousal is a physical or psychological state & in the context of erotica can refer to the arousal of thought, emotions, sexual response and activity.

in keeping with the above, the work should achieve a high standard of quality as a work of literature.
in keeping with the above, the creator of erotic fiction acknowledges the legacy of both the literary canon & contemporary fiction.

within these principles, there is much room for variation, tolerance & support for diversity of styles & intent.
