eroticism and nonesense

It seems like the popularity of manga can be explained not only by its efficiency in entertaining but also by its motif of creating a fantastical hyperbole of the mundane elements of life. Since so much time is spent on manga, it is then, presumably, very important in the shaping of people’s conscious notion of the self as well as the subconscious fantasy. Why, then are eroticism and nonesense so prevalent in manga? What does this prevalence tell us about manga readers, how they are affected by their society, and how they influence the art of manga?
