The Sinclair Institute and BetterSex.com announced today that it will award over $4,000 in cash and prizes great amateur erotic fiction writers. This will be the fourth erotic fiction writing contest held by the company. "Last year BetterSex.com received over three hundred stories from amateur writers in twelve countries including New Zealand, India and Great Britain," said Martin Smith a director for the company. Last year's contest resulted in a book entitled BetterSex.com Erotic Stories and an audio CD published by Better Sex Press.
Since the Victorian writing erotic fiction has provided a valuable fantasy outlet.
"Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion
moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot." -- D. H. Lawrence (1885 - 1930)
"Many of the better sex therapists and counselors we work with see erotic fiction writing as a safe and creative way to articulate, discuss and 'live' a fantasy," explained Mr. Smith. Women writers outnumbered men 3 to 1 in last year's contest. Fantasies ranged from the making the mundane exciting to the surreal. "We realized there is no limit to people's erotic creativity and, after reading over 300 stories we will never look at an elevator, the supermarket, a classroom or the office in quite the same way ever again," Mr. Smith joked.
The 2008 Erotic Fiction Contest will last through the summer and end on Labor Day. "This year's contest will include community voting for weekly winners like last year, but our Grand Prize will be awarded by a three judge panel," Mr. Smith explained. Winning stories will be featured in a book and earn cash prizes. "We love great erotic fiction, helping writers and our customer love the contest," said Mr. Smith.

The contest has attracted a wide spectrum of talented writers around the globe. Here are comments from recent winners:
"Knowing that BetterSex.com promotes healthy attitudes and practices about intimacy, I wanted to enter their writing contest from the moment I learned of it. Having my story selected as one of the winners and being included in the first book has been absolutely fantastic. The Erotic Fiction book is classy, filtered with beautiful photographs, and working with this company has been a great experience all around. I'm definitely looking forward to entering again this year." - Larissa Lyons
"As a full-time freelance writer and editor for non-fiction, I enjoy writing 'fun' fiction in my free time, but I had never pursued publication for it until I discovered the Better Sex Erotic Fiction contest I really enjoyed participating in the last two years, largely due to the supportive folks running it. They are the real deal, committed to quality erotic fiction!" - Anya Werner.
