Henry Miller makes my sex life hot, True Blood makes it not. What should I be reading / watching in order to get in the mood?

My husband and I have both noticed that when I read Henry Miller I tend to be more sexually adventurous and have more desire for sex. Recently, I noticed that after watching the series True Blood, although I found the show to be pretty sexy, it dampened my actual real-life desires, probably because I started comparing my husband to hot vampires (which is totally unfair, I know). When I listen to Dan Savage's Savage Love podcast there is also an increase in my sexual desire, mostly because it just makes me think about sex much more. I live in my head and the things I read, listen to, watch, etc. have a significant effect on how much I feel like making love to my wonderful husband. I think that Henry Miller and Dan Savage have a more positive effect on my sex life because in general they embrace people in all their glorious imperfection. True Blood makes me want to have well-choreographed sex with flawless men, and makes me feel annoyed, rather than enamored, by the grittiness of the gorgeous man to whom I'm married. Any suggestions as far as books, films, shows, etc. that have a libido-enhancing effect and fall into the "embracing imperfect humanness" category?
