THERE will be steamy goings-on at Swansea Library today when visitors will be treated to some erotic fiction extracts.

The readings have been set up to capitalise on the success of the E L James mummy porn blockbuster Fifty Shades Of Grey, with readers encouraged to broaden their tastes from there.

Hazel Cushion, spokeswoman for publisher Xcite Books, says: "Fifty Shades Of Grey has thrust erotic fiction from the top shelf and onto supermarket shelves.

"Erotic fiction is entertaining, exciting and easy to read and anything that gets people reading has got to be a good thing."

The Between the Sheets library event will encourage members to dip into a list of 30 classic and contemporary erotic works including The Business Of Pleasure by Justine Elyot, and classics like The Story Of O and Fanny Hill.

Authors Toni Sands and Hazel Cushion will talk at the free event, from 6pm.
