ADMIN EDIT: The first post from this topic has been removed because it was posted by a spambot. Thus the followup may not make complete sense. It asked about sex stories being moral.


what do u mean moral? like for the characters to not be considered sluts or a player(in a bad way)?

Sex in itself isn't immoral. The only way it'd be truly bad is if it was rape or molestation or of the sort.

So I hope you don't think that just because people have sex in a story it's not moral or anything. The main thing you have to thing about is how well you can actually write sex scenes if your going to write them. Because I've seen a lot of stories with badly written scenes before and some with well written scenes.

Also just because you have maybe one or two or not that many sex scenes in a story doesn't mean it's a sex story or it's some porno or anything. And if anyone tells you otherwise they are complete and utter idiots.

At least that's my opinion, I hope it helped you out some.

I think that all depends on what morals you go by. You're going to get different answers on this question depending on the varying morals of who answers, so I would just go with what you find to be a reasonable amount. I agree with Odjin on the well written part too. If it's going to look bad, I would avoid it all together. A romance story doesn't have to have sex to be good. I would also avoid writing so much that it turns into a PWP story. ^^ Good luck with whatever story this would be for.

Yeah which brings up another point. You can always 'fade to black' like just suggesting your characters had sex. But not describing the actual thing itself. A lot of people do that.

As I kinda expected, the "person" who posted this topic was actually a spammer. But since it vaguely resembled a real question and they didn't come back to edit spam links into their profile until a couple of days later, I didn't kill it when it first came up.

Y'all can feel free to discuss the issue if you want, but the person who started the topic wasn't a real person and won't be back to hear your answers. :)
