Eroticism is a term that describes something that makes an individual feel sexually stimulated and is often associated with literature or art that is intended to evoke sexual or romantic feelings in the individual exposed to it.
Eroticism is a term that has a dual usage.

 Eroticism Information
Eroticism is an aesthetic focused on sexual desire, especially the feelings of anticipation of sexual activity.
The word "eroticism" is derived from the name of the Greek god of love, Eros.
Yet an objection to eros and erotic representation (pornography) is that it fosters a subject/object relationship in which the object of desire is mere projection of the needs of desiring subject.

 George Bataille's View on Eroticism and Religion - Amy Chaves
Although reproduction is opposed to eroticism in that the former is the biological basis for sexual activity in both animals and man, Bataille nonetheless sees the fundamental meaning of reproduction as the key to eroticism.
Eroticism is also closely tied up with shame: "by moving imperceptibly from unashamed sexuality to sexuality with shame" it becomes part of the inner experience of man. Man is ashamed of some of his body parts related to eroticism.
This is portrayed in erotic experience where the lovers, in the intermingling of the flesh and organs of reproduction, become one in their desire to overcome separateness.

 Extract from Bataille's 'Eroticism'
The whole business of eroticism is to destroy the self-contained character of the participators as they are in their normal lives.
When I come to religious eroticism which is concerned with the fusion of beings with a world beyond everyday reality I shall return to the significance of sacrifice.
Here and now, however, I must emphasise that the female partner in eroticism was seen as the victim, the male as the sacrificer, both during the consummation losing themselves in the continuity established by the first destructive act.

The paroxystic goal of eroticism is orgasm: "the act in which the erotic act culminates, orgasm, is inexpressible" (133).
Eroticism is a poetry of the body and poetry is an eroticism of language...
For Roland Barthes, eroticism is "le mixte érotique de timbre et de langage," "la volupté des voyelles," that articulate the text as a body in a "stéréophonie de la chair profonde" (104-5).

However, it is supposed that erotic activity expresses an elemental human urge to substitute the sensation of isolation and discontinuity with a feeling of profound continuity.
Erotic activity, by dissolving the separate beings that participate in it, reveals their fundamental continuity, like the waves of a stormy sea." In the final analysis, "Eroticism, it may be said, is assenting to life up to the point of death."
A final and crucial element in Ferrater’s ideology is the link between eroticism and poetry, seen most clearly in his evaluation of the ability of literature in general and of the Catalan language in particular as a means for the individual to reach harmony.

 Experiencing Eroticism
Eroticism is something that can be shared with a partner, but it stems from the courage to open your heart to life and say yes to the exquisite pleasurable sensations of being alive (whether you are “having sex” or not).
I believe that much of our sexual desire is actually a desire for erotic fulfillment and that if we could experience this deeper (wholistic) aspect of sexuality, we would not need to find our self worth in a search for the perfect partner, medication, sexual techniques, or having the perfect body.
Eroticism is the experience of ourselves as fulfilled, whole beings.

Eroticism is amongst the most important works of one of the most stimulating and neglected French thinkers of the Twentieth century.
Eroticism is not an easy text for reasons we shall come to presently, but it is arguably the easiest and most rewarding portal into Bataille’s disturbing world.
Eroticism is not an object of enquiry, simply because the erotic is precisely that ‘sacred’ materiality which abrades and ruptures the categories of subject and object, self and world, inside and outside, human and animal.

The use of eroticism in film has been controversial since the earliest use of cinematography.
Ever since the silent era of film there have been actors and actresses who have shown parts of their bodies or undergarments, or dressed and behaved in ways considered sexually provocative by contemporary standards.
For example, the famous scene in the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch, in which Marilyn Monroe stands over a sidewalk ventilation grate and her skirt is blown upward, although it showed no "private parts" or even her underpants, was clearly intended to be erotic, and was considered overly suggestive by some.

Eroticism and love are forms derived from the sexual instinct: crystallizations, sublimations, perversions, and condensations which transform sexuality." From Plato and the great civilizations of antiquity to the modern period (including an examination of medieval courtly love and side excursions into Eastern approaches), the themes are studied through their literary and philosophical aspects.
Paz bemoans today's commercialization of eroticism but optimistically posits that science is, after a centuries-long hiatus, returning to an examination of the ontological (and hence, moral) questions of love as part of being.
In a nutshell, sex is the root, eroticism is the stem, and love is the flower that blooms as a result of the two.

In his debate with some feminist interpretations of the representation of female athletes, Allen Guttmann argues against what he sees as feminist "hostility to the erotic element in sports," stating that it is the body itself, not the photographs of it, that are erotic--that the athletic body is erotic regardless of how it is shot.
Athletic eroticism includes sexuality as one quality among many, not a trait that is present to the exclusion of all else.
As long as the bodybuilding industry chooses pornographic over athletic eroticism in their representation of female bodybuilders and fitness competitors, a representation that reduces these athletes to their sexuality, these sports will never be taken seriously as sports, and Ben Weider's dream will never be fully achieved.

This surprise seems rooted in his implicit beliefs that a president embodies a nation's culture during his term, and that a straight-laced conservative culture cannot possibly understand and express eroticism as well as a liberal culture that is freer and more in touch with sexuality.
Conservative values tend to preserve and heighten this erotic tension, while liberal values tend to move quickly toward its resolution and relief.
The lack of eroticism in American cinema should come as no shock, since the theater-going public in this country has repeatedly chosen guns over genitals, and the big studios have ignored adults in favor of 14-year-olds, who, frankly, don't have enough experience with their own bodies to know what eroticism is.

(Erotism, introduction) For Bataille, eroticism distinguishes man from the animals because it is a consciously intellectualized feeling that is possible only in a context where sexuality is repressed, or at least where erotic pleasure is independent of reproduction as an end.
Bataille relates eroticism to a knowledge of evil and the inevitability of death, rather than simply an expression of joyful passion.

This book examines the cultural specificity of same-sex eroticism in Chinese societies, in which the family kinship system, rather than an erotic object choice, is the basis of a person's identity.
Chou identifies a long history of same-sex eroticism within Chinese society, although the historical record is largely confined to men and occurs within the highly hierarchical context of Chinese society.
Equally, although Chou admits that historical same sex eroticism was classist and sexist, he might have said a bit more about the continued capacity for male Chinese PEPS who are married to do as they please: a capacity which wives could rarely match.

As though living on a knife-edge, what they believed, they believed to their "peril"-whether the peril was damnation, as Sapegno suggests, or whether it meant that they lived dangerously, in the shadow of violence.
For the erotic is the realm of danger, as Georges Bataille suggests when he defines eroticism as "assenting to life up to the point of death."2 For Bataille, in eroticism the subject flings away his or her sense of individuality, or autonomy, in a giving of the self that is without reserve.

Marijuana is a very erotic plant, and the majority of High Times readers are, I'm sure, hip to the fact that if you smoke cannabis prior to sex, every sensation becomes greatly enhanced because it increases the sensitivity of one's senses.
The sensual photo profiles and centerfolds in High Times of the plant itself reflect this erotic quality, as they are clearly modeled after the pictorials of beautiful nude women in Playboy and Penthouse.
And as the infamous Playboy interview with Timothy Leary during the Sixties made clear, the popularity of LSD is partially due to acid's ability to turn sexual activity into a full-blown ecstatic mystical experience.
