A psychologist has answered one of life’s great questions – what are the most erotic words in the English language?
After trawling through data from 300,000 erotic stories (we presume he didn’t read them all himself), Mark Allen Thornton found that the most commonly used erotic words are…
2. Mom (!)
That’s right, of all the thousands of words we have to stir an erotic felling in our partners, the slang for penis is the one most commonly used.

Mark analysed work from about 65,000 authors who uploaded their stories to fiction site Literotica, and he was quick to point out that around 65 per cent of the work was written by men.
Some slightly surprising words did crop up lower down in the list, such as ‘blood’, ‘hand’, ‘wolf’, ‘dad’ and even ‘kitchen’.
In his research Mark also found that writers between the ages of 33 and 55 are most likely to pen a story about BDSM, and identified a trend that the older women get, the more kinky they become – far more so than their male counterparts.
You can delve into the minds of erotic fiction writers on Mark’s website, but beware, any trace of innocence you had left will quickly be erased.
