26: Rachel Kramer Bussel: Erotica

How is being an editor like being a voyeur? What advantages does erotic fiction have over visual porn? How can erotica be a tool for richer fantasies and hotter sex? Why do we associate written erotica with women and visual porn with men? All this and more comes up when Tina sits down with prolific erotica writer and editor Rachel Kramer Bussel.
