Discussion: sexual content evrywhere

I was just using mature themes as a blanket statement since that is what most stories use in their warnings, not meaning that that is what you said, soz.

Do you mean change them to make them stricter?

I don’t mind sexual content. What I do mind is sexual content shown without consent. Either way most episode trending stories are trash lol.

No if they dont wanna follow the rules the should remove them,

What does that achieve though? It would be anarchy, no?

That wouldn’t be a fair solution. Yeah, I understand they shouldn’t break guidelines, but this will only cause unnecessary drama.

There is nothing we can do about sexual content that is breaking the guidelines except report it.

I don’t have a problem with sexual content in Episode stories as long as it is not detailed and not the only thing the story revolves around. I know that 13+ year olds are aware of these things and since I also have sexual references in my own stories, it would be hypocritical from me to say it’s not fine. But I do cringe about those covers because I find them so unnecessary, and I do cringe about the badly narrated sex scenes. I’m really surprised how creatively some authors can break the guidelines and make you think they are still within them, but guidelines or not, I just don’t think this app is the right place to write these kind of stories.

I don’t like stories where the Mc’s life revolves around sex. Makes it even harder to relate. :blue_heart:

well, i don’t really mind as a young teen. i understand sex doesn’t get you places and waiting until i’m most comfortable. sex in stories doesn’t matter to me. it’s natural. the reality is that these threads won’t solve or even begin to make authors think about ‘should i have nudity on my cover?’ since most of the authors that are very popular don’t have forums. we’ve had lots of threads about sex selling and we all agree. now they’re just… not useful. episode should try to enforce their rules instead of letting things slide and we can report stories that break the guidelines.

I guess I’m the only one who likes those covers. :,D I wouldn’t say they are that creative, though, because they kinda look the same. But! Yesterday, I read one of the most popular stories’ latest chapter, and I was like “Dafuq, is this a soft porn orgy?!” :,D (and it didn’t even add anything to the plot, it was clearly a “marketing tool”). I’m very open-minded, and I know young teenagers are not innocent and dumb, they exactly know how a relationship works between adults/young adults, and they even know more about sex than their parents would imagine, but come on, there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed (at least not until we’re talking about a PG-13 app).

Guys I started using episode at 15 and I was already having sex at the time
I was not shocked or anything. I know what you mean, I rarely read a story with those kind of covers, but I mean we see worse things in TV

Agreed

So what kind of rules/guidelines would you like them to change it to?
