I’ve been reading erotica for just over 20 years. Here’s a list of the 100 best stories I’ve read in that time, starting at number 80:
#80: Flashplight, by Jafar
Tags: mc, mf, ff, md, in – mom/son, mother/daughter
I mentioned in an earlier installment of this list that the late 90’s/early 00’s were the first golden age of erotica-writing. Jafar is a great example of the high-quality stories that were regularly being produced in that time.
Flashplight has a simple premise: people tend to do whatever the photographer says as they’re having their photo taken. Move your arm to the left, rotate slightly, come here and suck my cock…
This tale is a masterpiece; expertly executed on every level. And we’re only at #80! The main character learns about the mind control method by accident, and uses it to seduce half the women in town…including his own mother.
The biggest influence this story had on my writing was that it taught me how hot a simple, punctuating sound effect could be. Between each paragraph of the slow, sexy seduction of various women (the “friction” I’ve mentioned in the past is present in every scene of this story) the word “Flash.” is inserted, breaking it up and conveying the erosion of their free will:
She looked aghast when Bobby rolled back over.
“God, Mom, you look sexy sitting here naked in my bed. Show me your breasts again.”
“But … we ….”
“You melt when I stare at your naked body.”
“I … OOOOH!” she sighed and shivered as she lowered the sheet from her breasts. “I DO, don’t I?”
“You adore exposing your body to me.”
She giggled as she kicked the sheet down to expose her fur.
(Now that I’ve pointed it out, you’ll notice how often I use it in my own stories.(
Best scene: It’s a tie between the scene where the main character first seduces his mother…or the scene above, where she ‘wakes up’ from the camera’s effects, and he has to start photographing her to get her back under his control.
If you liked this, check out: My collaboration with BurroGirl, Photographed by my Friend, is the tale most obviously inspired by this gem, although (as always) my take involves a much more limited cast. Mister Arioch’s Listening to Jack also makes use of thought-changing imagery interjecting the scene, and his tale has a similarly broad scope/cast.
And most any time one of my stories combines spanking and mind control – most notably Spanked by my Boss – I make use of onomatoepaia to separate paragraphs and interrupt thoughts.
#79: Truth Telling, by zmuppet28
Tags: mc, mf, ff, md, in – sis/sis
zmuppet28 is another author who graced us with her presence for a few brief stories, then disappeared to the winds. We had a brief email correspondence back in the day, but she stopped replying around the same time she stopped posting, alas.
Truth Telling was her last story, and one of her best. An absolute tour de force, it’s basically written specifically to my kinks: female arousal, dirty talk, and externally-implanted casual incest.
There’s something I’ve noticed in each of my various pastimes: as one gets deeper into a hobby, your tastes get increasingly specific. Ridiculously specific. If you’re spending a bunch of time on something, you want to maximise how much pleasure you’re getting from it, and as your knowledge increases, you’re able to articulate your preferences and differentiate between what does it for you and what doesn’t.
I’ll use hobby board games as an example. When you talk to most people about board games, they’ll assume the list ends at Monopoly. Maybe, if you’re lucky, people have heard of Settlers of Catan or Codenames, but that’s a rarity.
If you can find a board game enthusiast, however, you’re suddenly in a whole new world. Thousands of new board games are released every year; there’s an entire hobby and industry that most people have never encountered. When you first dip your toes into the world of designer board games, each one you play is so much better than Monopoly (a hundred-year old design) or Uno…you’re happy just to be there.
But as you play more, you find your tastes changing. Sharpening. You start to realize that you don’t love games with direct player conflict, or too much randomness. A game that would’ve blown your socks off a few months earlier is now a hard pass. Before long, you’re incredibly picky – there’s a hundred thousand games out there, and you don’t want to waste your time on games you know you won’t love. Or anything similar to one of your favorites, but without hitting as hard.
That’s me and erotica. No, more specifically than that: at times, that’s me and incest mind-control erotica. Or my other main kink: cheating erotica. In a pinch I’ll read anything, but since I have an entire internet’s worth at my disposal, it doesn’t take much to make me skip to the next story.
Truth Telling has mind control and it has incest, but it stands above the masses because of the specific style and tone of mind-control incest it contains:
I love love love when siblings just casually use each other to get off. When female characters are just so horny, they want sex, and the convenience of having it under the same roof outweighs the taboo of sex with your family.
But, as I’ve mentioned before, I hate it when a character acts in a way I don’t believe. I don’t buy that a brother and sister would both randomly, independently reach a point where they’re okay using each other for sex. It doesn’t line up with how I know humans to work, and I can’t enjoy the tale.
So stories like Truth Telling, where a third party manipulates reality, changing someone’s history and memories and past…it’s perfect. You get casual incest without sacrificing believable characters.
Best scene: Most of chapter 2, frankly. I just wish it had gone on.
If you liked this, check out: The closest stories are definitely Vacation, which has a full rewriting of the past (and narrowly missed making this list) and Memories Make Us, though the latter only adds new memories, not actually altering reality. Truth Telling ranks higher than both, simply because it’s a third person reshaping history, rather than a character doing it selfishly.
Like I said, my preferences have gotten hyperspecific. Even within the microfield of incest mind control past-rewriting, I have opinions.
#78: Daddy’s DVDs, by Phred Pharkas
Tags: mc, mf, md, bdsm, in – daddy/daughter, degradation
Boy oh boy, this one goes back a while. Posted on the EMCSA in 2006, removed mid-2007. This is the first story so far that I can’t find anywhere but the Wayback Machine – so far I’ve managed to always link to an author-approved upload site, but in this case, one simply doesn’t exist.
But what a scorcher. Another example of a story with basically no tension, no slow build – Susan watches a DVD, and by the end of it, she’s her father’s unquestioning sex-slave.
This one made the list because of how expertly it integrates degradation, a lesser kink of mine. I’m not a sadist (I don’t think) but women who are putting themselves down, convinced of their own lowliness, and who use it as a driving force to serve a man…
Yeah, that’s a big turn-on. Maybe I am a sadist.
Phred Pharkas goes all-in on degradation in this one. The tale isn’t subtle, but it hits that one kink hard, with great imagery and some really creative debasement in this tale.
Every push forward of red-hot agony meant I was closer to being a good anal whore for my Daddy. I wanted it to hurt – it should hurt – a filthy cunt like me should suffer and get ass-raped by her Master. And then somewhere in my haze of lust and pain I realized he was in, all the way in. It was stunning – I could never have imagined what it would be like – I felt split open, felt like there was a tree stump inside me – my internal anatomy had been deranged. It felt like his cock was actually up in my guts, nudging my stomach, an incredible fullness that was both agonizing and insanely erotic.
I was soaking the pillow below me, leaking like a faucet, as I pushed back to make sure I was as open and fucked and anally stuffed by Daddycock as I could be.
Bonus line from the story:
I paused at the door, almost stunned by the enormity of what was about to happen: I was going to be allowed to fulfil my purpose and function. I was going to get my Daddy off with my fuck-pig mouth, cunt and ass.

#77: Laundry + Sons and Lovers, by BritSlut
Tags: mf, mom/son
Another classic, this pair of stories is almost the epitome of “middle-aged mothers realize their teenage sons are horny, offer themselves to help sons get off” tales. Yes, another microniche.
The opening scene from Laundry is a 10/10 in that specific sub-sub-genre: the mother finds a pair of her panties soiled by her son’s seed, and offers herself as a target for his cum. Hot, hot, hot.
These stories are deliciously perverted, a prime example of the subgenre. So why aren’t they it higher in the list? Well, they quickly goes sideways: as the mother and son are getting closer and pushing more boundaries, she and her best friend (who’s in a similar situation) do a son-swap, and spend their time getting fucked by a different teen.
That isn’t an inherently bad concept; if the story had featured that from the start, I probably still would have enjoyed it. But one of my huge pet peeves is when a story makes a promise, then fails to deliver on it.
This story promises a mother with the hornies for her son, a son with the hornies for his mother, and a slow breakdown of boundaries as they let their mutual lust overcome them. But it delivers “mom-swap” – again, not a bad premise. Just not the one I signed on for.
Best scene: The final scene of Laundry, where Robert cums on his mother while she touches herself, overcome by lust.
Close second: After she goes out on the town in a slinky black dress, her son finds it and masturbates all over it. In a moment of heat, she puts on the dress, sticky with her son’s seed. So visceral. So perverted. So damn hot.
If you liked this, check out: My own Only Teasing is another take on this genre. Many of the tales of SilkStockingLover are of a similar ilk…and, of course, BritSlut has a dozen other stories, all of which are written in her distinctive style.
#75: Anal Addict, by Anal Karen
Tags: mf, anal, in – bro/sis
Boy oh boy, this is a run of ancient stories. Number seventy-five on my list was first published to Literotica in 2002. George W. Bush was in his second year as president; Facebook, reddit, Twitter, and even LinkedIn didn’t yet exist; Fark.com was a regularly-used site, and I had been masturbating for less than a year.
This was one of the earliest stories I remember reading as a teenaged consumer of smut, and I think it still holds up. It’s a little raw, of course, but the central heat is just so electric. It even gets past my “wait, why are these two siblings attracted to each other?” filter.
It’s a tale as old as time: a young woman discovers her brother is obsessed with anal sex, and (despite never having shown any attraction to her sibling in the past) she gets obsessed with his obsession, until one day he comes into his room to find her on his bed, lubed up, begging him to take her anal virginity.
How many times have we heard that story?
Seriously though, it works for me because of how specific the obsession is. It’s not just a generic “you know what’s hot? Brothers.” tale – it’s a story about a young woman discovering a fetish, becoming obsessed with it in that way that teens do, and then hooking up with her brother because she doesn’t know where else she can get her fix.
Best scene: If Karen sneaks into her brother’s room and goes through his entire porn collection, rubbing her butthole as she watches video after video of women having anal sex.
If you liked this, check out: One of the reasons this story made it to my list is that it’s such a specific fetish (which some of my ex’s actually, truly had) that I just haven’t found much erotica focusing on. I’m sure there’s an entire “anal incest” smut community, but I’m not aware of them. Stormbringer’s amazing Lessons from the Neighbor has a lot of anal sex (with the classic Catholic justification “it’s not cheating”), but I can’t think of any other m/f stories I’ve read that focus on it this heavily.
#74: ReMomdified, by Shadebalan and The Berk
Tags: mc, mf, md, in – mom/son, spanking, exhibtionism
Another story that would be so much higher if it had been finished. I’m infamous for having a billion unfinished stories (I just did a quick count: at time of writing, I have 28 unfinished stories on the EMCSA – more than most authors ever start!) (but on the other hand, that means I have 108 finished stories) so I can’t complain too loudly, but…c’mon. Finish your incredibly hot stories, people.
Having said that, this tale could’ve been custom-written for me. Limited powers, cheating, spanking, third-party controller, impossibly hot family member lusted after by teen boy, sex scenes where one person thinks they’re just doing normal activities…
It’s also the second rewrite on this list: I love it when someone takes another author’s story, and does their best to realize its full potential, or take it in a different direction. I’m a huge fan of cover songs, and projects like these feel like the erotica version of a cover song. They really work for me – I’ve done a few of my own, and have several more in the pipeline.
If I were to fault ReMomdified for anything (besides being unfinished) it’s the presence of a sister who seems to be nothing more than set dressing. If you’re writing an incest erotica story, every unfucked family member is just wasteful, if you ask me.
Best scene: The moment where the son realizes how to activate the first card: “When someone misbehaves, it is normal to say ‘Spanking is the customary punishment’.” He assume he’s the one who’ll be spanked. He is incorrect.
If you liked this, check out: I’m again going to refer to my Sexy Shorts series; it’s a whole lot of family members (especially sons and moms) partaking in sex without both parties realizing that’s what they’re doing. And my ongoing tale Spanked by my Boss doesn’t have the incest angle, but it does feature a MILF accepting spankings as an ordinary part of working in the office.
#73: Totem, by This Guy
Tags: mc, mf, md, cheating, in – bro/sis, mom/son, teenager/his girlfriend’s step-mother
Speaking of old-school stories…
This tale pre-dates 9/11 by almost 5 months. And while it’s a little gentle to rank any higher on my list, in every other way it’s an absolute classic.
Another harem tale, Totem is about a teenage boy touching a magical artifact which gives him nigh-unlimited sexual powers. He can seduce anyone, he can cum as much as he wants, and he will never get an STI or impregnate someone unless he wants to.
Like many harem stories, it’s quite wish-fulfillmenty in a way that doesn’t normally interest me (I need tension in my smut tales) but either because I read it so early or because it’s genuinely so well-crafted, this one gets a pass from me.
Over the course of the story, Sam fucks his nurse, a neighbor, his sister, his mother, his best friend, the popular girl at school, his best friend’s mother, and possibly some teachers or miscellaneous others along the way. But it isn’t like a badly-written Do-Over story, with each conquest being a “hey, new person! Let’s flirt, then fuck, and then introduce a…hey, new person!”
No, the author does a great job of giving each encounter its own tension, and making the relationships feel really different. The first woman he sleeps with, Sam has absolutely no idea about his powers; he just thinks that his nurse is randomly into him.
The second woman, he’s still hesitant but (due to the confidence the titular Totem has given him) not worried. We then switch to his sister’s POV for a chapter or two (it starts slow between them, with him suggesting some clothing changes, and her not really understanding why it excites her so much) before they make love, in a surprisingly passionate and romantic scene.
Their mother is furious (and turned on) when she finds her children making love, which adds some nice tension, but Sam goes into her room that night and she realizes she was just jealous.
With each new coupling, there’s a different dynamic being explored. One more: when he gets with his best friend, he doesn’t want to ruin the friendship, be dishonest with her, or have her freak out when she learns about what he’s doing with his family.
Obviously it all resolves in the most teen-fantasy way possible (that’s the gentleness I referred to earlier; everyone is happy to be sexing everyone, all the time) but this story has been told hundreds of times in much less sophisticated ways, and I appreciate the effort that Totem puts in.
Best scene: Sam, having worked out his powers, turns them on full-tilt during dinner with his girlfriend’s parents. Her step-mother ends up sucking and fucking her husband all night, then in the morning Sam takes her as his own.
If you liked this, check out: There are dozens of harem stories, with several more coming up on this very list. I’ve tried my hand at a few “innate sexual powers develop in a teenage boy” stories, but I can never find the tension that makes a story hot, so they never got too far. I Love Sucking Cock would probably be the closest (though the power is much more limited), or perhaps my ongoing story Blue.
#72: Crazy from the Touch by D. Holzer
Tags: mc, mf, md, cheating
With this story, it’s official. #80-71 are where all the 20-year old stories live.
Another 2001 classic, the concept of Crazy from the Touch is simple: if Dave touches a woman’s neck, he gives her a powerful orgasm. He mentions this when Jim and his husband Lauren are visiting, and Lauren insists he demonstrates on her.
Afterwards, as the name suggests, she becomes obsessed with the touch. Completely obsessed. “Will do anything” obsessed.
It’s short and hot and a little darker than I normally go for, but fuck me does it work. He takes a simple premise and explores it to its full potential, which is how I like my media. This is one of the shorter tales on the list, so rather than write more about it, I’d suggest you just go and check it out.
Best scene: This story is more fascinating than hot, but each of the Touch scenes is both. I also like the moment where the teenager Lauren kidnaps (as mentioned, it gets dark) admits that she isn’t quite the goody two-shoes Lauren assumed she was.
If you liked this, check out: There really is nothing quite like this, even twenty years later. I’m not familiar with D. Holtzer’s other tales, but there might be something in there which is similar (if you find something, let me know).
#71: Sibling Rivalry, by dreamer dreamz
Tags: mc, md, mf, in – daughter/step-daddy
When I was putting together this list, I simply ranked the stories; I didn’t theme each batch of ten or anything like that. So it’s a genuine coincidence that nine of the ten stories in this chunk was written and released before I’d even graduated high-school.
Another short good’un – and one that much more closely aligns with what you’d expect me to be including on this list. Sibling Rivalry is the tale of two sisters, competing to impress their creepy new step-father.
Told in the style of a diary (many tales were epistolary, back in the day), this one was a big influence on me. Normally adding “step-” to a relationship feels like you’re watering it down to get past the censors, or to prevent people from being completely grossed out (and in the process, diminishing the heat for anyone who’s into incest erotica), but step-father tales – and, to a lesser degree, step-brothers – are the exception.
A step-father relationship suddenly adds a competitive element with the mother, a cheating aspect that you don’t always get with father/daughter relationships. And while there’s an obvious (well, if you share my kinks) heat to a father lusting after the person he raised, there’s a whole different kind of eroticism to meeting a stranger who you’re meant to be paternal towards, and instead entering a sexual relationship.
This is a great example of why that dynamic works. Randy enters the family, basically shunts the mother off to make money, and mind-controls the daughters into being his personal sex slaves.
Best scene: The final dinner scene is probably the highlight, but my favorite element of the tale is the constant abuse that the narrator bestows on her mother and sister.
Up next: #70-61…
