On harnessing eroticism, one of the first thing your post reminded me of was, in fact, a comment, maybe on astral codex ten, by someone who reported trying to give a "prosocial" bend to his fantasies: instead of just dreaming of boning a nondescript beauty, he'd set up a context where his ideal behaviour would be rewarded: "l just crunched out my work like a beast, I leave my boss office where he just congratulated me, and I immediately seduce the secretary, and we go wildly on the desk", this kind of things.

I have no idea if that works, but it's a fun idea imho.
