    Erotica sub-forum rules discussion

    Discussion in 'Erotica' started by Wreybies, Oct 10, 2013.

    These are the rules as of October 14, 2013 for the Writing Workshop Erotica subforum, not to be confused with the Erotica Discussion area under By the Genre, which is where you are now if you're reading this. ;) Anything else you think might be good to mention? :)

    1. Thread titles must be free of explicit content. They need to be kid friendly. Though the threads cannot be entered by people under 17 years of age, the thread titles themselves are visible to all members of the forum.
    2. Absolutely no kids depicted in sex acts. No hinting at. No allusion to. Period. No discussion. This is a legal matter, not one of preference; thus, threads or posts that include such material will be immediately deleted.
    3. Bestiality is a no-no. Shape-shifters are really big in erotica right now and this can sometimes cross a line. Shifters are fine, but if your shifter dude is 100% in the form of a horse and your shifter gal (or other dude) is completely human, NO!
    4. Actual rape is not permitted. This is not to be confused with fetish material where there is play acting at such things.

    As part of your initial posting, we ask that you please give a brief description of the kind of sex (if any) the critic will encounter: Straight, gay, lesbian, trans, aliens, paranormal, etc.

    In your thread title, we ask that you give a rating of 1,2,3 or 4
    1. Little to no sex
    2. A little more action
    3. Full on action
    4. Fetish

    Duely noted... I'm so excited.

    Maybe we should move over a few existing threads to get it started?

    There are only two that come to mind. I'll PM the members before I move the threads.

    Wrey, if you move threads here, make sure all the replies are by "of age" members as well.

    It would kind of suck if people posted quality critiques they can no longer access.

    Heres another thing I want to discuss: Rules.

    At the one good Erotica site I frequent, the rules are very, very simple and few. I thought maybe we could have a discussion on applying them here.

    1) Abso-fucking-lutely no kids depicted in sex acts. Period. No discussion.
    2) Bestiality is a no-no. Shape-shifters are really big in erotica right now and this can sometimes cross a line. Shifters are fine, but if your shifter dude is 100% in the form of a horse and your shifter gal (or other dude) is completely human, NO!
    3) Rape isn't erotic, or at least shouldn't be. No.

    Other than that, they use a simple system of denoting how strong the content of sex is in any item up for critique. 1-2-3-4. One is light, four is fetish.


    Thoughts??

    Yeah, that's why I wanted to PM them first. :D I've noticed most members these days don't show their age in their profile page. o_O

    For me, perfectly fine. A robot in erotica is just an ultra-high tech dildo. ;)

    OMG... we have an erotic section. :eek:
    I feel like a kid in a candy store.

    That being said, I agree with points 1 & 2. 1 is an absolute no go, and 2 can be a strange line. As far as 3 goes... rape fetish is actually quite common (not ACTUAL rape, mind you). Is 'forced' sex still considered rape (starting off as a no, but ending in a hell yes)? Curious as far as posting goes...:D

    I'm cool with this in it's fetish form, when it's clear that there's a structure around it for all participants. I'm talking about the actual thing, the crime.

    Also, though this section is tucked under the Short Stories area (for reasons that make perfect sense to me until Daniel can make it a truly hidden section) I am perfectly fine with the posting of excerpts from novel length projects. In fact, I highly encourage it. Shorter pieces can be very much erotica, but they are also the pieces that tend to be just porn, and, well... That. ;)

    I'm oddly intrigued by this.
    I've been reading some Faust and I haven't tried turning on my audience in a long time...

    Also, wizard sex :D
    ... I feel bad for suggesting it :(

    I concur with the rules.
    We shouldn't post things are too scary and depraved here :p

    I'll stick to Harlequin style fiction for the lulz.

    Oh man it's going to be tough moderating this section. I wouldn't want to be you Wreys.

    I don't write erotica but would it be okay to test out a sex scene from a WIP novel here?

    Of course! I mean, there would be no difference, really, if one thinks about it. :)

    Thank Daniel! His work, not mine. ;)

    I nudged persistently, but this was me as much as anyone else:

    How will we get a heads up when the other erotic sections are up and running? Will they just randomly show up as this one did, or will there be some sort of announcement somewhere? And, OMG, I can't wait to get home and post something. Heheheh.

    For now everything will be in this one room. I don't know if there is plan for further subsections. Poetry, short stories, excerpts of novels, all of it. I wanted to open this discussion so we can all share ideas about how to best organize it or if there is even really a need for that, other than setting some basic guidelines. :) Personally, I think the simpler the better.

    There won't be a need for keys. Your age is automatically scanned at the door and all contributors who pass the scan are welcome. Members who can't show decorum will be shown the door. ;)

    Sweet deal! So I found it, I'm in it, and so excited to get home!! *grumbles about current transportation as she waits in line*

    I like the idea of rating from 1-4, but should we include a disclaimer of contents before the actual piece so people aren't caught too unawares?

    Well, let's talk about that. When you say 'content to disclaim', do you mean like: straight, LGBTQ, Aliens, Shifters, etc. or do you mean graphicness of acts described...?
