Open to Interpretation

    When I write fiction, I make sure to exclude as many details as possible.  Obscurity breeds the opportunity for the reader's imagination to roam.  You may know the character's name.  I may release the information that he or she is considered to be attractive.  But who am I to define what's beautiful?  Speaking for myself, I prefer to paint my own personal picture.

Have you ever watched a movie based off a book you've read?  
Only to be grossed out by the actor playing your favorite character?

     Furthermore, when writing erotica; I try not to elaborate too far on the action.  Who am I to describe the indescribable neural signals that results from sex?  When that warm, wet sensation envelopes; who can fully depict the sparks shooting up our spines?  When it comes to sex and sensuality; it is truly "different strokes for different folks".  Why write about their eye contact during oral, when some people hate that?  Why go on and on about his fist full of blonde hair, when some people prefer brunettes or Afros?

In my book, the best art is open to interpretation.

So you're saying you like looking at porn without the actual pictures of the penis?
that's the whole point!
that's like reading a book that only has pictures or watching a silent movie.
The whole purpose is destroyed!

@Cogent: I'm mainly speaking about literature...but I also like art that leaves a lot of blanks.

Think of all the celebrities who revealed their disappointing penises and remember how you wish you never known! LOL
