1. What makes an ero story good? Good use of imagery and something passionate might be nice. You're not selling a porno, you're selling a dream. Idk if males can enjoy content directed at females since they're pretty much on the different ends of the same pole. I mean, while female stuff can basically be as rapey as male content (the fmc going "no, no" but the hot male lead going anyways), unless it's a pure ero story, there is a TON of buffer in between nights. A lot of which is romance and drama, lots of melodrama... I'm over-generalizing, but you get the idea. 2. What makes it a horrible read for both female and male readers? Scum bag MC... Mutual respect of both participating parties is always the best in my opinion. Unless they're both scumbags, then they can make like rabbits, idc. But more in general, too much self-insert fantasy. I've seen a couple "guy gets a super power so he abuses it to get lucky with beauties" stories floating around. I get some people dig that, but I don't really get the appeal. Dialogue during sex scenes can also get really corny. Makes me laugh sometimes at how cliche they are hahahaha. Anyways, something you should be careful about. Sex with no dialogue is kinda boring though, so try to find a good balance. Lastly, it's the great sex=> fall in love, or the great sex=> I can't live without your body anymore trope. 3. When you read this type of novel, do you prefer the entirety of it to be in the 1st person point of view? 1st person POV is easier, multi-POV seems interesting though. Why not just go 3rd person view then if you can't decide? 4. Do you enjoy purely ero action? Plot is always better. Doesn't have to be a good plot, but some semblance of plot should at least be there, even if you're trying to make an ero ero story. Or even in a oneshot, or reader insert. 5. Do you like it when there's real romance in an ero story? How deep is too deep? I like romance. It's logical to group sex with romance. Ofc you don't need romance for one night stands. But if the partners are gonna go at it repeatedly in the story, then they might as well upgrade from a sex friend into a lover (or harem mate or even good friend) at least. 6. Do you read ero stories during a meal/in the day/on the train...this is a troll question but why not? Tend not to, but if there's an ero part in the story I'm currently reading, then it's better to get through it quick and get to the non ero parts so I can keep binge reading.
