10 of the most Erotic Lines in literature

Words have mesmerized us, given us goose bumps, they have given us joy, they have also led to heartbreaks. But most importantly, as Professor John Keatings played by our beloved Robin Williams puts it in The Dead Poets’ Society, language was developed for one endeavor and no, that wasn’t to communicate but to woo women. Aye aye captain! Here is listing some of the most romantic, erotic and arousing lines in literature:

1. “The man kept putting his hands between the woman’s legs and saying things like, ‘So this is what starlight feels like!’” –Alyssa Nutting

2. “I much prefer breasts to heaving mounds.” –Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

3. “I will kiss you like forgiveness. You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you.” – Clementine De Von Radics

4. “I mean you ask me
not to fall in love with you
and then you go write poems
with your tongue
and draw constellations
in my freckles.”
― Clementine von Radics

5. “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” – Pablo Neruda

6. “I want
to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.”
― Pablo Neruda

7. “Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl and her kiss was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.” – Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

8. “I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane.” – John Green, Looking for Alaska

9. “But you’ve slipped under my skin, invaded my blood and seized my heart.” – Maria V. Snyder, Poison Study

10. “I want her to melt into me, like butter on toast. I want to absorb her and walk around for the rest of my days with her encased in my skin. I want.” – Sara Gruen, Water for Elephants

Words are amazingly powerful. Go use them to your advantage, say them to your partner. Fantasies need to be spelled out.
