How raunchy can we get with sex scenes? 1 Month, 3 Weeks ago Karma: 1
Just curious, since I'm still new to Dokuga, but how descriptive can we be with those intimate scenes? Is vulgar language not allowed, even if the story is rated M? I have a couple one-shots that pretty much makes fun of some fanfics of mine, where the romance is super rushed, but in a comedic way, with some inappropriate words mentioned...

How far is too far?

My favorite writing subject, mwahaha. Just about anything you can think up (explicit descriptions of sexual activity, vulgar and/or sexually-oriented language, aka 'dirty talk,' kinks/fetishes, etc.) is permitted, as long as you give the story the appropriate rating. In this case, that rating would be 'MA' for 'Mature.' Also, you might consider adding a custom warning in the summary or in the 1st chapter, to lay out the exact content of the story in more detail if you don't feel the standard MA rating is enough info for readers and the site moderators.

A phrase that is frequently used here, regarding story content, is 'No YIMs!' - 'YIM' stands for 'Young Impressionable Minds'. Generally, to say 'No YIMs!' means 'No underage readers permitted.' So you might work that into your summary if you feel the need.

Good to know!

Thank you for responding back! I was a bit worried some form of MA wasn't allowed, guess it's time for some happy writing. xD

Welcome to Dokuga!


Actually YIM stands for "Young Impressionable Marble." The genesis was from when we had chat here on the site and would host a DDN (Drabble Drawble Night) in our chat. Occasionally, sugar0o would host what she called "Gutter Marble DDN" for the over 18 crowd. Then we started calling the underage crowd Young Impressionable Marbles to distinguish them from the people that would be allowed in the MA chat.

So, yeah. YIM actually started with r0o-zilla... and I miss her!
