This might prove an interesting discussion, but it requires a complete reading of The Lilith Obsession for proper context.
I’ve been surfing around, looking for a place where my erotica might be a better fit than the Sugasm. Again, let me reiterate: I love the Sugasm. I just don’t think I’m offering what Sugasmers are looking to read.
I want to get my content into the browsers of people who are looking for my kind of content, rather than have a bajillion page views by people who are disappointed by what they find here.
I happened into the Erotica Readers and Writers Association website, where there is a newsletter, forum, email discussion list, resources, blah blah blah. I’m grooving to it so far.
There’s also a call for submissions there, and one of the things they rule out in submitted erotica is rape (probably quite sensibly to avoid the legal hassles). Now, I’ve not gotten to the point where I’m seriously considering a submission yet, but it brings to mind a series of questions about the sexual interaction between the two characters in my story, and I don’t think the answers are as clear-cut as they might at first appear.
Now, the questions, below the fold to conceal any spoilers from those who’ve not read The Lilith Obsession yet.:
Did Lucifer rape Lilith in The Lilith Obession?
Did he think he did?
Did she think he did?
Did YOU think he did?
Did your opinion change when you got to the end? If so, what made you change your mind?
What part did consent play in that, and does the fact that the real consent was not obvious to Lucifer make any difference?
Should we put Lucifer on trial, and let you, the jury, decide? I think we just did. Let’s hear opening arguments.
From whence came the art:
