$$$ Erotic Short Stories

What typically do writers receive financially for erotica short stories, what do publishers usually pay writers for these kinds of works?

I don't write it, but I saw your question here and thought you might like to go visit www.duotrope.com and search for erotica markets. Each will have their payscale listed, which will give you an idea of the range, and also some target markets.

Some of the online sites that publish erotic short stories also post their pay rates at their site. I know Ruthiesclub.com does.

In my case 20-50 dollars or royalties. But pro markets would pay much higher than that.
