Wait, is even nudity considered eroticness? Like, not describing snything but simply stating that a character is nude as if they're changing or something...?

 

Its really iffy. I had an example somewhere, I'll fetch it later.

Oh god, I saw the PM from the staff and thought I'd gotten banned for getting 'I'm Uncultured' a few times.

 

To stay on topic, I'm glad erotica is not allowed. I couldn't imagine smut roleplayers sent random users PMs with sexual content. It wouldn't bother me aside from cringing off my chair, but I'm certain other would be. Ty, Dark Wizard, you're the best waifu.

Question: Is it against the rules, then, to say that a woman is breastfeeding her baby within an rp on the site? Or to rp a nurse teaching a woman how to breastfeed? Not that I can think of a situation where someone would want to do it, but I'm one day hoping to be an OB nurse that does that sort of thing and the fact that it would be labeled "erotic" disturbs me more than a little. 

no, i think that would be perfectly fine since it is not sexual.

Lmao, I'm going to sound like a creeper or something here, but physical closeness- hands off the crotch type stuff is fine then? I just haven't been RP'ing for very long. Sorry about all of the questions. :P 

 

If you're not touching genitalia, it's fine.

I - not being an admin - think it should be fine as long as you basically type it in the simplest way without focusing on the details of breastfeeding.  This is mostly due to the fetish nature some have with breastfeeding and could easily have it go down that dark path of erotica pretty quickly.

I personally have never had a problem with this rule and I'm glad that it's in place. Though every now and then I still get a creeper pming me about wanting to roleplay erotic content. I immediately get rid of the conversation and go about my business. It's really disturbing how even though there are rules against it, people disregard those rules and do it anyway.

@The Dark Wizard

As it seems to be a recurring question, you may want to add on the OP exactly what is considered 'erotic' and inappropriate on the site.

You should report PMs like that - it'll help us stop erotic content existing where it shouldn't be.

I think maybe you need a common sense PSA, lol.

 

I doubt any significant sacrifice/tribute to fuel the darkest of dark magics can be found for that.

No? That's not sexual at all, and I really doubt you'd be describing her breasts. Unless you were describing genitals or they're being touched in a sexual manner.

Question mark? The question mark at the end of your statement confuses me. It was stated that mentioning touching of genitals was considered erotic content and even though it would be a very brief mention, a woman has to hold her breast to feed a baby.

How is it determined whether or not a touch is sexual? Isn't that kind of subjective? 

 

I'm not trying to poke holes in the rules. I'm merely seeking to understand them because I feel it is generally good knowledge to have. The PSA actually seemed to be fairly informative so I'm just hoping to clarify some of my own understanding. Hope it comes off that way...

Eeeeehhhhhhh, this could be erotica.  Erotica isn't just nipples and genitalia touching, it's sexual acts written out.  Rubbing a hand on a crotch with sexual purpose is erotica.  Hell, if you write it correctly, having one character fantasizing about another character is erotica.

Breastfeeding is not erotic when it is between a woman and child.

If a woman was to be feeding a partner, that would be erotic, because it is sexual.

Senpai noticed me!  And all I can say is I pity you guys having to review erotica reports.  I can only imagine some of the disturbing things you've had to read.  And will a 96 pack of kuerig k cups not be enough fuel? D:

Honestly, minors could still be exposed to erotic content incredibly easily, so I don't believe that'd be legal.

I see, thanks but now you've sprung another question to mind, is only sexual actions towards a woman's breasts not allowed? because there's a rather large debate over here in Australia over wether or not that should be considered erotic, pretty much half the population has them, they're all there and quite frankly it's ridiculous that they've been made a sexual icon in the first place, they're a natural part of the female body developed in order to breastfeed children, not for men to gawk at, simply saying that say to female characters where having a teasing discussion on breast size to one another in a friendly-fight kinda way, (e.g. 'Flat-chest!' 'Top-Heavy!' etc….) would this still be counted? And this also leads to the topic of menstruation (Which also really shouldn't be a touchy subject as, stated before, pretty much half the population has them) would discussion on the subject also be considered 'erotic' despite it being a normal bodily function? Because a fairly normal scenario in both IRL and other media forms is the discussion of, 'that time of the month' between friends in even a slight comedic relief kind of manner?…. (Sorry for all the questions!!!!~ :3 :D X3 XD)

Nudity is not erotic, describing their body in detail is.

Describing in detail based on the context can either be erotic or not. One can describe these topics in a scientific manner, such as if one is talking about the anatomy and physiology of either the male or female genitalia for the mere purpose of science and not pleasure.

No :(.

 

Though in all seriousness I love my kuerig, I've been hooked on these lately https://www.amazon.com/Starbucks-Caffe-Verona-Keurig-Brewers/dp/B00BJ9U4ZC/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1472663227&sr=8-1&keywords=cafe+verona

 

I have not been able to enjoy my coffee in a few days due to having a stomach bug though :(

 

Lets get back on topic :P

As has been said, touching of breasts or description is considered erotic. If it was something like an in-character comment, that would be fine, but describing the appearance and whatever of breasts is not allowed.

Menstruation is not erotic, and I don't see how it could be, I'd liken a period to having a character who's being repetitively punched in the stomach and is experiencing bleeding. Sure, it's horrible, but it's not erotic.

I'd volunteer to write it, but I feel like a hundred variations on the phrase 'what the fuck is actually wrong with you?' wouldn't be good for the site's image.

Hmm stomach bug, have you tried taking a magnesium supplement?

and if not maybe an anti biotic or if need be a laxative to do a system purge?

Why the sudden push on anti-erotica?  Has it become a problem or something?  Is the site in danger of being shut down?

I do, but I'm also 100% certain I've already slaughtered anybody that has romanticized the hell that is 1/4 of my life. I mean what.
