Erotica and action stories share a tension between spectacle and narrative.

Action stories are about the punchy-punchy-boom-boom scenes.

Erotica is about the fucky-fucky-bang-bang scenes.

But both rely on some kind of overarching story to justify their spectacles. To make people care about the situations which those spectacles resolve.

They have to thread a delicate needle between having enough compelling story to pull the reader in, but not so much that the reader starts to wonder where all the spectacle is.
