For a second. I had read "The eRotica thread", and thought a whole new world of possibilities had opened up on GMG.  :D

Good day, Peter!

And a good day from grey, rainy, far too warm Belgium.

Exotica, erotica...the difference is marginal....

Scriabin, of course...

And (fun) DADA risqué... Erwin Schulhoff's Sonata erotica . Tender souls could be shocked, I suppose....
"Performance of the piece – written for a non-existent instrument called the ‘Solo-Muttertrompete’ (Solo-Mothertrumpet) and suitable, according to Schulhoff, ‘for men only’ – requires a certain daring and lack of inhibition. Not least at the end, where the prescribed sanitary activities may present a particular challenge to the performer. If this is so, the solution we would suggest is that the performer withdraws behind a screen or offstage to pour water into a zinc bucket, with or without amplification."
YT has at least 3 versions.....You are warned....

I see where you're coming from, I experienced the same reading and thought several times when this thread popped up in the unread topics list.

Tbh, I have no doubt that such a thread would be as contentious, conflictual and divisive as any political thread.  :D
