Sexual Assault in Stories


#1

Are writers allowed to address sexual assault in their stories? I’m currently working on a story based on someone accusing some other person of sexual assault. I’m not planning on showing anything explicit. Am I allowed to do that?


#2

Do you mean you’re not planning on showing anything explicit?
If so, then yeah, you’re definitely allowed to address and discuss the topic in your story.


#3

Yea, that’s what I meant.


#4

Typos will be the death of us all, huh?:joy:
Anyway, you’re completely within the guidelines to explore the idea of sexual assault. It’ll be totally fine. Good luck with your story!

Thank you!


#6

Pretty sure as long as you don’t glorify sexual assault it’s allowed.


#7

As long as you (That sounded so Bieber-ish, right? No? Okay…) don’t narrate or visualize the said scene, then yeah, what the above people said.


#8

If you’re unsure of anything, you can always email support. I recently sent them one of my scenes to check as I wasn’t sure if it adhered to the guidelines.
