According to the dictionary 'erotica' is art or literature dealing with the arousal and/or satisfaction of sexual desire. Given that one person's perversion is another's minor titillation leaves a very wide field, from the shocking to the saucy to the sublime. Joining Jennifer Byrne to discuss the erotic and our endless fascination with it are Krissy Kneen, author of Triptych and Swallow The Sound - a writer pushing the boundaries of acceptable sexual norms; David Malouf, one of Australia's most treasured writers and a deep thinker; writer, curator and performer Eddie Sharp, the mind behind the successful and often outrageous Erotic Fan Fiction Readings; and Linda Jaivin, writer, translator, and author of eight books including the very steamy Eat Me and more recently, A Most Immoral Woman.
