This is one of the Victorian tiles I just posted on etsy.  I have always preferred the erotic ones, but I do like these also.  Do you think that I should bother to make more of this style or just keep with the racy ones?

This one is called "If you sleep the rats will come"

Well, I went to your Etsy store to buy this but it was already sold!  And sold while I was looking at it, so that should tell you. 

I like the Victorian ones more than the Japanese ones.  I thought they went with their backgrounds better.

I have to admit, I'm a bit of a prude and would never buy one of the erotic ones.  But your Victorian one, on the other hand.... I think it's darling, and would have no problem buying it if I had a place to put it.

I think you should add a few more things like the Victorian tile, just so you can have something for those people that shy away from erotica, beautiful as it is.

i love the colors on the japanese / erotic ones!   but these are beautiful in  their own way, too.
the colors on the others are just so eye-catching...

The problem comes in because you have two completely different target audiences. Victorian stuff is hot, but many of the fans (many are just plain old middle-aged women) would find your erotica (I would put it strongly in the homosexual category) offensive/disgusting and simply wouldn't want to support you in this by buying any of your other products. So, you either have to sex up your Victorian to fit in with the erotica, or try to market each separately and hope they don't come together in the wrong places.

A bolder me would buy a bunch of the erotic ones and tile around a huge garden tub in a master bathroom.

I do like the Victorian ones.  Doesn't hurt to diversify.  The erotic ones are beautiful but have a narrow market.

Thanks for the input everyone!

They have hooks on the back so you can hang them on the wall like a painting
