Adult Content question...


I'm going to be expanding my message boards to include fanfiction.

Many fanfictions that I'll be including have sexual content in them and I'm wondering if I'm allowed to post them on the boards.

The rules say no porn and I'm not sure what category these fanfics would fall into. They aren't porn as in smut or anything, but more along the lines of what you read in a typical romance novel.

Is this allowed?

I plan on password protecting these boards and stating if you apply for access you are stating you are 18 or over.

I don't really know. What kind of 'sexual content' would there be?

I can't say I've read a 'romance novel'...

Usually porn is in the pixel variety.

Thor would have to answer as to whether he also wishes to disallow steamy saucy sentences.

I see Jag is taking a gr8 interest in it! emoticon

We've had this asked before and at the time I believe Thor's answer was that fanfiction was fine but if you were worried about your fanfiction being a special case to consider to PM him a piece of the text.

Re: Adult Content question...


It's not as graphic as, say a penthouse letter, but some are descriptive of sexual acts ranging from general m/f to f/f and m/m. If I were to rate them, they would vairy between PG-13 to NC-17.

There's a large lesbian following for Xena and the fanfiction reflects this as there is also a large slash following for LotR and their fanfiction reflects this as well.

Each fanfiction would be rated and it will show in the titles and all fanfiction that is sexually graphic in nature would be placed in a password protected board.

Most aren't any more graphic than what you would see while watching a soap opera or something on Must See TV on Thursday nights but I want to avoid getting shut down because I misunderstood what was meant by no porn.

The fanfics aren't pornographic in any way, IMO, but as we all know opinions vary LOL!!!

Porn, to me, means instant gratification...this isn't what these fanfics are about. Most are novels, but alot have sexual activity in them, like with a romance novel. Sex isn't the full scope of the story, just a part of it.

I can set up a board and place a few fanfics on them prior to actually opening the fanfic section of my site and let you review them to see what I mean if that's easier for you.

Well, it's a shady area.

If this does not involve posting any picture or movie porn (i.e. it's only text), and the containing forum/board is/are private, it is fine, I guess.
