    My writing is "too sexual"?????

    So I have a question for y'all. Especially those who have followed me for some time.

    There is a certain publication that I contacted to ask about writing a story for them and then in return ask if they would also publish my Patreon address. A pretty standard practice really.

    BUT, said publication's editor wrote back to me, denying the request and stating we write for "different audiences". When I questioned what audience she thinks I write for, seeing as my stories are very like those she publishes, she told me my stories are too sexual.

    ....... WHAT?

    My stories have always avoided having any sexual depiction, as those of you who know my writing SHOULD know....?? I remember mentions in the past about how my stories are "sweet" and devoid of any of that. So I am asking ... has anyone noticed some sort of changeover in my writing to sexual?? I'm flummoxed and frankly I am insulted.

    While I haven't read most of your stories, from what I have read the idea that they're sexual at all is baffling.

        If your stories are sexual, then dear lord, some of the stuff on here would be so sexual in nature no one would be old enough to read it O-o

          I'll put it this way your stories are asexual that a 70 year old Nun from the Congo wouldn't find anything objectionable in them. It's pretty much why I'm a patron.

            Thank you for that. :-) Got hit with a huge car repair bill. I was able to get it down some but it is still pretty high.

              Best I can figure out is that she must have read, "A Date With Nikita". https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/spar...-t3404071.html It ALLUDES to petting I suppose. Not really overtly sexual though.

              I suppose it could have been worse. She could have read "Diary Of A Madman", which includes a school shooting scene (written years ago, not recently), which is by far the darkest thing I ever wrote.

              Possibly when she asked for a writing sample I should have just copied and pasted something rather than send an entire portfolio link without guidance. Too bad she didn't see a Sakura or One Of The Family story first.

              Still, she has a regular section for one "sissy" writer in particular, and I've seen that page ..... talk about sexual! lol

                One of the family could be taken the wrong way by some people as well... Not saying they're right but in today's climate. Meh. But then again I hated one of the main characters so take that with a grain of salt I don't think it was Nikita maybe that's oversexualized if you're Amish

                  Could it simply be that the publisher doesn't want to touch "us" with a ten foot pole, and that they just don't want to come out and say that?

                  You say they have "similar"audiences based on what else they've published; but what we may see as similar, they may want to keep at as far a distance as possible.

                  Just my two cyinical cents.

                      Well, since it is an ABDL publication, that would be pretty unlikely.

                        Yes, I also thought Pam deserved far more karmic retribution then she actually got.
