Almost no one saw this coming, but after Fifty Shades of Grey became one of the top 10 best-selling books of all time, more and more people are looking for some kink in their nightly reading. Maybe you've always been a fan of erotica, or maybe you're a little skeptical because of those cheesy bodice-rippers you see on grocery store shelves. Either way, it's hard to deny that modern erotica has come a long way (pun totally intended). You're bound to enjoy at least one of these steamy excerpts, even if you weren't that into Fifty Shades.

I've found some of the best sex scenes around, with a few select throwbacks to past decades. Read on, and prepare to be breathless. WARNING: These books may cause spontaneous kissing attacks, fake sick days from work and lots of dirty laundry.

"God, David." I arched against him when he moved to my other breast. Two fingers worked inside me, a little uncomfortable but nothing I couldn’t handle. Not so long as he kept his mouth on me, lavishing my breasts with attention. His thumb rubbed around a sweet spot and my eyes rolled back into my head. So close. The strength of what was building was staggering. Mind-blowing. My body was going to be blown to dust, atoms, when this hit. If he stopped, I’d cry. Cry, and beg. And maybe kill...

When she saw that he was dissolved with pleasure, she stopped, divining that perhaps if she deprived him now he might make a gesture towards fulfillment. At first he made no motion. His sex was quivering, and he was tormented with desire… Marianne grew desperate. She pushed his hand away, took his sex into her mouth again, and with her two hands she encircled his sexual parts, caressed him and absorbed him until he came. He leaned over with gratitude, tenderness, and murmured, “You are the first woman, the first woman, the first woman…”

He drove his tongue inside her, setting off another shattering moan that was music to his ears. She was quite an instrument to play, so finely tuned, and if he touched her right, she made the most glorious sounds — raw, intense, absolutely delicious noises of pleasure as he plundered her with his tongue. She grabbed his hair, yanked and pulled him closer as he’d told her to do. He thrust one finger inside her, crooking it and hitting her in the spot that turned her moans into one long, high-pitched orgasm. She shuddered against him, her legs quaking, and when he finally slowed to look up at her, he saw her hair was a wild tumble, and her face was glowing.
