The Best Erotic Stories To Read Online (That'll Turn You On When You're All Alone)

free erotic stories and literotica

You're VERY welcome! *wink*

When it comes to keeping your love life vibrant (whether with someone else, or solo), you can never have too much literotica. It's sexy, seductive, enticing and just plain fun.

Why does reading erotica work so well to turn you on?

Because sexual arousal (especially female arousal) begins in the brain. So often, we rush ourselves (and our partners) to orgasm without really incorporating our mind and whole body into the pleasurable experience. We might 'get off' quickly and feel a bit of tension relief, but without the full mind-body arousal experience, we don't reap the benefits that come with sex and having a full-body, blissed-out orgasm

Reading erotica is a great way to turn your mind AND body on at the same time. 

Because we care, we went ahead and gathered the best FREE online erotic stories you can find. And luckily, you're not just limited to 50 Shades of Grey anymore. Everyone — from straight women to gay men — loves erotic sex stories, and the following websites offer a wide variety of sexy genres and styles for every sexual orientation.

So, whether you're sneaking a peek from your desk at work (naughty, naughty!), sharing these with the one you love, or indulging your sweet self at home all alone, here is YourTango's list of best erotica, literotica and sex stories available online:

1. Kara's P*rn for Women
No girl-on-girl pics here. One of the few sites targeted to heterosexual women, Kara's has a small collection of stories, primarily involving consensual, one-on-one intercourse and oral sex. A collection of links points to stories with slightly more diversity, but still with hetero women in mind. It also has links to sex and relationships articles, book reviews, and pay-to-view erotic photos and videos.

Best story to start with: "The Masseuse" 

"Taking his left hand, Sergio opened the folds of Sami's outer lips, and just like that, slowly sank the huge sex toy deep inside of the middle aged woman's [vagina] until all eight inches were buried to the hilt. It was lucky they were on a fairly isolated lot, because the second the big [penis] entered her, Sami gave out a long loud scream that threatened to shake the pictures right off the walls. 

“Is it uncomfortable for Madame?” he asked softly. “Would you like me to remove it?” 

“God no,” she gasped, “It's incredible! ... "

Best story to start with: "Girlfriend Wears Tights To Hang Out With Boyfriend And Buddy"

"I want Dave to stay,' said Cindy petulantly. She jumped up to stand before Bob and shimmied out of her tights. Bob stared at her dumbfounded as she discarded her top and stood there naked before him. For his part, Dave was admiring the sight of Cindy's round white rump from behind as she dropped to her knees before Bob. 'Let me suck,' she begged him sweetly, pulling his pants down and pressing her big boobs up against Bob's thighs. 

'But, but,' Bob stammered, torn between arousal, embarrassment, and jealousy as his stiff [penis] strained upward expectantly, waiting to get sucked. 

'No buts, Dave's watching while I blow you,' said Cindy decisively as she inhaled Bob's hard penis  ... "

3. Literotica

Stories on this site must be accepted for publication (e.g., no self-uploading). They even offer "how to" articles for aspiring erotica authors and volunteer editors will read and edit a story before it's submitted. This means the quality of material is (largely) better, and while the site's design is far from cutting edge, at least it's easy to navigate.

Themes vary widely, but the site does have limits. We're told the site does not include stories involving a character under age 18 and no bestiality. All the other expected categories are here (i.e. BDSM, LGBT, group sex, etc. ) as well as some creative additions such as: "Non-human" and "Sci-Fi." in case aliens, ghosts, androids or werewolves are your thing. 

Best story to start with: "Lust for Friend's Mother

"Zeshan got up and slowly pushed Robina onto her back. He pulled her shalwar down her legs and she helped him, lifting up her [bottom] as he took it off. She had killer legs. For that matter, she was killer from head to toe. Robina had a beautiful flat stomach even after giving birth to Zaheed and his younger brother, and sister. She spread her legs wide apart to accommodate him. 

She spread her legs and raised her eyebrows at him, questioning, well what are you waiting for? ... "

From “Damsels in Distress” to “Erotic Mind Control," anything goes at one of the oldest and largest collections of sex stories on the web. It's ad-free, so you won't get 45 browser windows full of porn popping up, but it's also un-moderated, which means anyone can post anything they want.

WARNING: Because content is un-moderated and uncensored, some of it is extremely subversive. The faint of heart should browse elsewhere.

Best story to start with: "]]>Midnight Madness]]>" by Marcia Hooper

"Blindfolded, Kellie stood, precariously balanced. Her legs were spread-eagled by a stainless steal bar strapped between her ankles. Her arms were pinioned behind her back, bound together at the wrists and elbows; her breasts thrust comically forward. A small silver spring-loaded clamp tipped each of her nipples and a black dildo secured by a thick leather strap gagged her mouth. Long blonde hair cascaded down her shoulders to the small of her back. She was completely nude..."

6. BDSM Cafe

One of the most visually attractive sites we looked at, BDSM Cafe offers erotic short stories paired with well-shot BDSM-themed images. As the name implies, this site caters to people with kinky inclinations. The site boasts 100s of pictures depicting spanking, fetish, bondage, and kinks, as well as a well-written collection of short stories, picture-stories, full-length BDSM novels, and poetry.

Those new to BDSM (or looking to deepen their exploration) can also access a free resource section of beginners guides, advice, and useful links. It’s also worth noting that — honoring the integrity of 'full-consent' revered in authentic BDSM circles — this site verifies that all images “involve either professional models or consenting amateurs” all over the age of 18 and that no illegal acts are “depicted, suggested, or or condoned in any way whatsoever.” Consensual BDSM is name of the game at BDSM Cafe.

Best story to start with: The Kinky Poker Game”

“Mike and Jim were standing by the head of the table, and Larry was at the foot. Ted un-cuffed my wrists and told me to lie down, and Mike and Jim, helped me.

They fastened my wrists, below the headrest, to the front legs; this caused by large breasts to be pulled taut. Then Larry and Ted placed my feet in the stirrups, at the end of leg rods, and fastened the ankle and foot straps. They then swiveled the rods out to the side, and up, and locked them in place. There I was stark naked, breasts taut, my legs spread wide, and my knees bent. I was wide open for anyone to play with, and with four [aroused] men in the room!

I almost came at the thought of it!”

7. SoloTouch

Initially a site focused on masturbation-themed erotica, Solo Touch now includes stories of masturbation and partner sex. Expect a simple, stripped down interface on this site, but it’s easy to navigate with the most recent stories in the middle of the page, and story categories (broken down by gender: male-female, female-female, male solo, etc.) on the left.

There are premium level stories available with a subscription to the site, but spend some time exploring the free content first to see if they have stories that float your boat. Since much of the content is written by users (who are not necessarily experienced writers) some stories are far stronger than others, but the hunt for a quality read is worth the effort.


Best story to start with: Kavita Cheating On Her Husband

… “ My mind was fighting this intrusion, but my body betrayed me. It was welcoming, eager. Only then did the realization hit me. Arun was using both hands on my [vagina], so right now my hands were free. Even then I didn’t move I wanted to, but couldn’t.

I could move my hands, to push him away. His tongue then traced the glistening slit on my open [vagina]. ‘Oh God!’ I moaned loudly as my fingernails scratched the walls. I tried to look down at him, but his face was buried between my legs. His tongue enjoying my womanhood, invading me, using me, and taking full advantage of my vulnerability and desire.”


8. Libida

Libida is actually a sex toy and sexuality education site focused on promoting healthy female sexuality. As part of the mission they also offer a section of free, pro-female sexuality erotica.

Best story to start with:The Couch-Surfers

"'I’ll take your word for it, babe. I was too busy trying to eye Carmen’s [boobs] without being too obvious.' 

'Well, I sure noticed you peering, Jack. And I wouldn’t be surprised if she did, too.'

Jack pushed his boxers down and could now feel his wife’s wetness against his [penis] 'You know, Naomi,' Jack’s voice turned suggestive. 'A lot of foreign men have fantasies about American women. Especially blonde, American women.' Naomi knew where he was going with this.

'Is that a fact?' she whispered, egging him on and feeling a new tinge of pleasure.

'Yeah,' he continued. 'Andreas has a hot young girlfriend, but I bet he wants you, Naomi, wants to run his fingers through your blonde hair while he buries his hungry, Latin [penis] in you.'

It had been a while since the couple had talked dirty to each other like this. It felt long overdue.

Naomi dismounted and lay down on the bed, her head near her husband’s [penis]."
