Please use the guidelines of a 12A film for use of adult content and themes in your stories you submit to the site. Use your common sense 🙂
We are in the process of setting up a sister site which will house stories with a more adult theme, for erotic science fiction and fantasy, so keep those stories in your draw for now until we get this site up and running.
