Arla Dahl is a lover and avid reader of all things sexy and suspenseful. A New Yorker, born and bred, she is forever fascinated by the varied cultures of her city but the close and heady feel of a moody late night jazz club is her favorite part of living in NY. When Arla’s muse goes stealth, she spends her time trying recipes from exotic locales, with rich flavors and provocative scents that tempt and tease and satisfy.
“Whereas men are overwhelmed by the strong pulsations of the body, women remain free to bestow a wider meaning to the corporeal elements of the erotic.”*
- F. Gonzalez-Crussi, pathologist, educator. “The Conditions for Seduction, According to an Old Chinese Text,” On the Nature of Things Erotic, Harcourt Brace (1988).
Many eyebrows are raised when people first learn that an author writes erotica. I find that moment, whether of intrigue or discomfort, amusing, since we are all sexual beings and, well, sex sells … so it is clearly a subject of interest to many.
I write about sex. But since what I write is erotic and not pornographic, my stories are not only about sex… or “the strong pulsations of the body”.
Porn is about the act. Erotica is about the people who engage in the act.
“The erotic does not end in spastic contractions and reflex discharges; it transcends them, to reach into the ethereal realms of memory and feeling, like a note that reverberates long after the string has pulsated.” -F. Gonzalez-Crussi
