My Pussy, My Church: Tales of Lara Writes Erotica for the Instagram Era

Good erotica is hard to find. We exist in a culture fueled by images and ruled by algorithms, and our collective attention span hovers somewhere around fifteen seconds (i.e. the maximum length of an Instagram story). It’s not exactly the kind of environment that inspires stories that grip you with subtle sensuality and scorch you with sexual tension, just voyeuristic enough to drive your own imagination wild and leave you blushing and biting your lip on your morning commute. That’s why we found ourselves all hot and bothered when we discovered Tales of Lara, an Instagram account that serves up erotica for the Instagram era, bite-sized snapshots of love, lust, and one night stands that are both painfully relatable and tantalizingly tongue in cheek.

The stories, which are published in easily digestible pieces via Instagram Stories, are told from the point of view of a mysterious anonymous narrator named Lara, and each one gives us a quick (and dirty) glimpse into her sexual experiences with a variety of different men. They range from amusingly lighthearted to vividly erotic to emotionally intimate, sparse and sensual poems dripping with naughty details that burn into your brain in the best kind of way.

Whether these addictive modern day sexcapades have you in your feelings remembering past love affairs or fantasizing about the next sexy stranger you meet, they bring to life the rich and nuanced landscape of female lust and sexuality in a way that feels authentic and unapologetic. These stories are empowering instead of exploitative: they portray a woman taking ownership of her experiences, embracing her desires, and passionately pursuing her pleasure, which is hot as hell to witness. During a time in which it feels like a majority of sexual content is created by and for men, these bold and unfiltered stories hit you like a bolt of lightning, proving once and for all that there’s nothing quite like the female gaze.
