In a repressive country like ours, where even the mention of sex education is considered as some sort of crime, the overwhelming interest in erotic fiction is understandable. After all, the more you block the expression of what is natural in you, the more it will reveal itself in awkward ways. Anyway, we talk here of erotic fiction and its unrivalled popularity when it comes to eBook downloads on the BookChums site.
The other popular download is a collection of erotic short stories, a set of 20 stories edited by Cathryn Cooper. The book is titled Sex and Submission that has recorded a sizeable 1526 number of downloads. This makes it easily, one of the most downloaded eBook across all categories. Although the stories are barely literature, except for one or two, they absorb and present sexual situations as a good excuse for the stories.
We end with the most loved classic erotic text of all time, The Kamasutra of Vatsyayana by Richard Burton, Bhagavanlal Indrajit and Shivaram Parashuram Bhide. The text is not just about sexual life, but also disperses advice on social life, household life and how men and women should behave. The book amazes us by holding up a mirror to the comfort level that ancient India had with sex. Not surprisingly we have had 1559 downloads of this eBook. Old is gold, as they say.
