Woman As Art
True art takes the human mind on a journey of discovery. This is also the goal of the serious flash fiction writer who writes a story that has sex in it; for this writer understands that sex is never just about sex.
I’m speaking about writers who understand that an erotic flash fiction story can be more than just good entertainment. If the story is good enough, it can be art, too.
Such a story can take a reader on a journey that in some way adds to the reader’s understanding of what it means to be human, that sex does not take place in a vacuum, that the best stories about sex are really not about sex at all.
The best erotic stories are really about relationships. They’re really about life.
Sometimes sex is a celebration of love, one of the most transformative acts that we know of.
But whether the journey is about love or just about pleasure, in the hands of a serious writer, the erotic flash fiction short story is always a journey of psychic discovery.

Do you write fiction? Is there explicit sex in some of your fiction? Should you use a pen name for your stories about sex?
Hello hello hello, my brother and sister readers and writers from all over the world! It’s a mostly sunny day in Pittsburgh and the high will be around 60 degrees. After posting this, the Old Soldier is going for a nice walk down to the public library and then through Schenley Park.
Like everybody else, writers have many different elements in their personalities. And art that deals with explicit sex has a long and honorable tradition.
Still, a writer of sexually explicit fiction has many things to consider before putting his or her name on a story about sexuality.
The Old Soldier has a piece of advice for you: “Do whatever you think is best for you.”

Here at the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, erotica is alive and well.
Hello hello hello, all my brother and sister readers and writers from all over the world! The high will be around 70 degrees with off and on sunshine today in Pittsburgh. Can you believe it? Spring has finally sprung.
The Old Soldier is about to enjoy a nice walk in the sunshine to Armands Bar in Bloomfield (Little Italy) for a couple of draft beers and to pick up a six-pack of beer.
But before I leave I just want to let you know that if you enjoy reading erotica, if you are sexually adventurous in you reading, you are going to love this blog. Why do I think you will love this blog? Because it is a blog not only of the libido but also of the intellect.
You know you can’t beat that with a stick!
