Erotic literature consists of factual and fictional stories and accounts of eros that involve passionate, romantic, or sexual relationships intended to arouse similar feelings in readers. Compared to that, erotica focuses more specifically on sexual feeling and other common elements like satire and social criticism. Even though there is cultural disapproval of such material, the circulation of erotica was not seen as a major problem before the invention of printing.
After printing machines were invented, all kinds of books containing a variety of genres were printed and released.
