Emotion Porn. Emoporn, or emo porn, is a term used to indicate a type of fanfiction where the emotional content is both extremely intense, and specifically appealing to an individual reader's preferences. Thus emoporn is as intense and satisfying in an emotional sense, as pornography is in a sexual sense.
Other kinds of writing tries to make you feel something, to be sure, but emo porn's goal is to make you feel that *whatever you are feeling is everything* -- at least for that moment. It goes straight for the spine, and when it's done well, there's a kind of disconnected elation that results, where you feel like you've been mainlining some powerful emotion in its purest form.
Types of emo porn
Emo porn may be dark, angsty, romantic, or even triumphant, as long as the scenario produces an emotional response in the reader.
