So my most recent story I am working on includes, in my opinion, 'mild' sexuality. But I want to get some opinions. My latest story contains a short description of an assault and rape of a young woman. I do not get into details and I go from the initial attack to the hospital room when she wakes up. This is integral to the story. It's almost like a fill-in-the-blank type of thing. The reader can assume what happens next and I don't want to go into any sort of detail. He attacks her, some dialogue is exchanged, I describe her feelings of fear and helplessness and then BOOM, cut to the hospital. I am trying to include this incident in my story but I don't want to cross 'the line'. This is a difficult balance. Granted, it's nothing more than you would see on any episode of Law & Order, but I don't use explicit language and I leave some things to the readers imagination. Also, do you think that someone getting shot and killed is as bad as it used to be? It seems you can't turn on the TV without seeing someone die or get shot. I mean, the description is just going to be, 'A shot rang out, he slumped to the floor.' Etc.. Just want to get opinions; personal, professional or otherwise. ~ J. J.
