This paper studies the changes in the erotic description in historical novels after 1990s. Such changes have extricated historical novels from the rigid mode of representing historical facts so that they can make innovations in the field of artistic aesthetics. But however, such changes have also caused the vulgarity of historical novel writing. To get rid of such vulgarity, writers of this genre must possess a historical consciousness.
