The pleasure of Short Erotic Stories and the challenge to write them

When it comes to Erotica and Erotic Literature there’s nothing better than sitting down and catching a quick story that entices as much as it entangles. Or do you know anything cozier and more inspiring as to read a hot short story before falling asleep?

Usually, these stories come in the form of Erotic Novellas and Novels. Most consumers, women especially, love a great read that entices the senses and fulfills dreams we might not know we had.

But there’s one section of Erotic fiction that just doesn’t get the credit it deserves, until today: That’s the Erotic Short Story.

With a 5K word (or 100 page) maximum; Erotic Short Stories are your new go-to selection for whiling away a boring afternoon.

Now obviously these aren’t appropriate for anyone under 18 as they contain seriously mature sex scenes and tantalizing sensuality, but for our adult readers, they are perfect for a quick mood changer.

But we would like to warn you: maybe you will never again stop to read such super-shorts as bedtime stories.

So definitely do not miss our Top 10 of Erotic Short Stories all under 100 pages!

Don’t Sell Yourself Short: Why we love Erotic Short Stories

Erotic Fiction is in a class all its own when it comes to fiction writing.

Now granted, all fiction needs the essentials: a setting that entices the imagination, characters that make us want, a conflict we can relate to or at least imagine and a resolution that has a sighing in satisfaction.

But Erotic Fiction has to couple all of those elements with seriously hot, sensually steamy sex scenes that turn us on, take our temperatures up a notch and put us in the mood for bedroom play when we turn the last page. That’s what makes Erotic Short Stories so damn great!

If an author manages to include these three characteristics into a story, the wordcount is not important anymore. It's possible to do it in 500 words or 50,000 words.

But often times authors seem to forget this simple rule: if your story doesn’t have those three key elements you might as well copy from the dictionary. That’s how boring your story is going to be.

So how do you fit a full story arc into 5 thousand words or less?

You focus only about the story that has to be told.
And that's what makes these super-shorts so enticing: they contain no fluff and no filler. They are up to the point.

And if done by properly, they still give you as the reader everything you need!

So without further ado: Let’s dive into 10 Great Erotic Short Stories which will give you a short burst of reading fun!

Check out our Top Ten Erotic Short Stories. 100 pages or less of the hottest erotic romance around!

Our Best Erotic Short Stories: A Little Something to Get You Started

#1 F*ck and Fall in Love by Nicole Falls:

Cover of the Erotic Short Story Fuck and Fall in Love by Nicole Falls. One of the Best Erotic Short Stories is Fuck and Fall in Love by Nicole Falls of which this picture shows the cover

In the book F*ck and Fall in Love author Nicole Falls weaves the story of Jane and Nigel.

Jane is a company representative that gets tasked with attending the parent company meetings. Nigel is the bouncer at the bar in her hotel.

After a few of Ms. Abril’s Truth Serum cocktails, Jane takes a leap and gives Nigel a not-so-subtle invitation to visit her on her last night in the city. But it’s anyone’s guess if this pair will have a fling or a future in this great afternoon or bedtime read.

“I’ll have you know that the Truth Serum doesn’t make the drinker of said serum do anything the drinker doesn’t want to do. And everyone knows its gin that’ll make you sin while you’re ordering a G&T.”

-Abril, bar tender extraordinaire. F*ck and Fall in Love by Nicole Falls

#2 Bought and Paid for by Paige North

Book Cover of top Erotic Short Story Bought and Paid for by Paige North showing a hot man in a suit

Paige North brings you the tale of Harlow and Grayson in Bought and Paid For.

She is a woman in desperate need of funds. And he is a CEO in need of an image.

Their collision course of a relationship starts with a website ad and mixes in a healthy dose of corruption, deceit and a chance at true love. But only if these two can put aside their mistrust long enough to grasp it.

“Foreman texted Rick because he couldn’t get a hold of me,” I say. “He said that you propositioned him a few minutes ago. When he refused you, you followed him into a dark alley and threw yourself at him there.”

- Grayson in Bought and Paid For by Paige North. -

#3 Rock Hard by Lucia Jordan

Picture showing a woman with her hand in a sexy man's pants, cover of Rock Hard which is on of the Best ultra short Erotic Story available on Kindle

When Lucia Jordan added Rock Hard to Kindle, fans of her work were excited.

And for the most part they should have been.

Rock Hard has dynamic characters and all the conflict and sexual tension you’d expect from erotic romance story.

Lucia Jordan implemented the scenes awesomely hot. Rock Hard will definitely make you want to keep reading. However, there was some of room for disappointment as well. We want to be absolutely honest with you here.

Rock Hard, when ordered on Kindle Unlimited is more like a book sample. It is, as described above, not a fully fleshed out story. You are let with the first nibble and the book doesn’t begin to describe where the story of Zane, Cole, Peyton and Dallas is really going.

But if you're just on the search for a short, hot and well-written story, Rock Hard is a good choice.

Maybe you can draw the story to an end yourself in your own imagination...

#4 Cinnamon Blade by Shira Glassman

If you happen to be into anything involving aliens, vampires, superheroes and f/f romance, Cinnamon Blade has it all.

This book encompasses an ‘otherworldly’ set of circumstances that bring our heroine and her girl-toy together in one of the hottest, sexiest scenes to ever grace a page.

Shira Glassman is one of a kind when it comes to paranormal, lesbian erotic romance.

In this cute, admittedly short erotic romance, you’ll meet both Cinnamon Blade, the superheroine and Soledad Castillo, the nerdy, uber smart second half of this f/f romance duo.

This clearly isn’t the first story these two have shared as back history is given in the first few paragraphs. But it is the first time they’re getting around to what they really want. And that is, no surprise, each other.

This story is full of hilarious comedy, tenderness and super-hot sex, obviously.

While Cinnamon Blade certainly falls into the fantasy erotic romance sub-genre (or even Paranormal Erotic Romance), it is something really special in this genre. Cinnamon Blade is not such a dark paranormal story, but surprisingly light and funny. So if you are looking for a fun, short read you definitely can’t go wrong with this one.

“Can I tell you a personal thing?” Soledad asked. Blade shivered with anticipation...”I fantasize about you.” Those words melted Blade more than she could possibly have imagined. Cinnamon Blade knew in that moment, she wanted to make it her mission to give Soledad as many orgasms as she could enjoy.

#5 Headless by Aveda Vice

Book Cover of the MMF Erotic Short Story named Headless by Aveda Vice

At a very short 18 pages, you’d assume that Headless, a sexy and death embracing retelling of “Sleep Hollow” would be full of the fleshly pursuits of Ichabod Crane, but in this super-hot MMF tale, Ichabod is held captive every October by the same force as his friend Katrin.

Their friend Brom Bones loves the thrill of adventure and steps a bit too close to the ‘Headless Horseman,’ eventually giving up his own life for the eternity that makes him prowl during the longest, darkest night every fall.

And for one blessed night each year he finds himself tracking his two former friends, enjoying the night in a way not even Death itself can stall.

Brom loves them both and takes them both, diving deep into both Katrin and Ichabod’s desires, pleasing himself and satiating the fleshly demands of the only two living people he will ever touch without the threat of death.

So if you look for a short burst of MMF action - this one is for you!

#6 The Whipping Boy by Logan Matthews

Cover of the erotic mm short romance story the Whipping Boy

This M/M short story is as ‘to the point’ as you’re likely to get in anything longer than micro or flash fiction.

At a meager 13 pages, it jumps off the cliff and never lands as you fly through the relationship between a 15th century whipping boy and the Master of the Bedchamber.

Or is it Prince Alix, the whipping boy favors?

Author, Logan Mathews does a fantastic job punching through the nitty-gritty to get down to the business of intensely sexual fantasy fulfillment in this age-play, M/M erotic short story and at the end you’ll be wondering why it was so short, except to tease you into wanting more.

#7 The Massage By Kitty Fine

Book Cover of the sexy short massage story The Massage by Kitty Fine wich is one of the best short erotica stories

At just 28 pages, this steamy massage M/F erotic short story gets right into the action when Jen decides to treat herself to a massage after a long week at work.

Feeling sulky from her recent breakup, Jen isn’t expecting her Masseuse to be so damn hot, but that is nothing compared to how hot she gets when he begins touching her.

Masseuse or not, the man knows just what she wants and is more than ready to oblige in this quick and fun short story read.

Kitty Fine does a great job bringing sultry sex and one time encounters to the forefront with this fast, steamy erotica.

#9 Watching Gina by Ginger Kitty

Picture showing a hot woman as Cover of Watching Gina which is a short forbidden erotica story

Watching Gina is a short, straight to the point forbidden erotic story about a woman who watches, completely captivated, while her barely legal daughter does the deed with her husband.

Brock isn’t Gina’s biological father, and at eighteen she’s ripe for sexual adventure and Brock is perfect for experimentation.

When Gina’s mom goes out to make popcorn, Gina and Brock get frisky between the sheets and when Gina comes back, she’s captivated by the sight and sounds of her husband Brock and her daughter, Gina fucking, quite engrossed in one another.

Much to her dismay, the mother is severely turned on and watches, engrossed herself in the carnal exploits in her bedroom.

If you’re into forbidden fantasies and fun reads, this one is certain to set you up right.

#10 Swaying Fate by Irma Geddon

Book Cover of Swaying Fate which is one of the Best Paranormal Erotic Short Stories

In this paranormal Erotic Short Story, Asia is the immortal fate that cuts the ties of mortal humans to the lives they know. As such she has sworn off romantic entanglements, unable to bear the pain that comes from ending a life she loved.

But when she meets Michael, a military man with a painful past, she falls hard and fast, as does he. So, what happens when a fate falls for a life she will eventually have to end?

Pick up Swaying Fate to find out just what Asia and Michael choose to do.

A final Plea for below 5'000 word stories

Really good Erotic Short Stories always have all the elements of their longer erotica counterparts (or even something like Slow Burn Romance). They have it all, just in a much more concise format. Given that most of these stories can be read in an afternoon or less, they can become a sort of delightful break in your day.

So, the next time you’re stressed out or have had enough adulting for the day:

pull up your e-reader, download a super short erotic short story and escape to a world where sex, mystery, superheroes and all the crucial elements of a good read can enthrall you.

And of course, doing that in a cozy place with your favorite tea, coffee or partner does help too.
