Restricted (adult) content
Adult content is typically recommended only for readers above 18+ years, because it contains erotic or violent scenes. A book has to be tagged as adult if it is not generally thought to be appropriate for viewing by children.
In this sense, Fifty Shades of Grey is considered to be adult content (in addition to being categorized as new adult/contemporary romance/erotica as well).
We accept adult content, but please make sure that your content still does not contain the following elements:
- Depiction (photo or drawing) of a child in a sexual situation, even without contact.
- Photographs of penetrative sex, oral/genital contact, or genitals.
- Textual encouragement to commit a crime (e.g. books supporting, encouraging or defending rape, mind control, dubious consent, paedophilia, incest, pseudo-incest or bestiality, or books detailing how to commit a sexual crime).
- Photographic content intended for the sole purpose of sexual arousal.
- Excessively objectionable or crude content.
What we deem offensive is in accordance with the UN hate speech guidelines and regulations. Users may not publish material that promotes hate toward groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity.
Illegal and Infringing Content
We take violations of law and proprietary rights very seriously. It is your responsibility to ensure that your content doesn’t violate law or copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, or other rights. Please be aware that freely available content doesn’t mean free to sell content – always obtain the rights before you sell something. This is true not only for text, but also for images and fonts used.
