I was still dopey--well, at least about some possibilities--until I was 28.

So were many of us, but we shouldn't have been on Literotica.

It and the internet didn't exist when I was 15. I had to make do with nudist magazines or ancient copies of the National Geographic showing photos of 'native women'.

Or peering through a plastic stereo viewer at pictures like this:

It's like [oggbashan] is writing for the third puffin over there by the sixth rock, when everyone else is an emperor penguin in the Antarctic, where there's tens of thousands of the bastards.

“The inimitable stories of Tong-King never have any real ending, and this one, being in his most elevated style, has even less end than most of them. But the whole narrative is permeated with the odour of joss-sticks and honourable high-mindedness, and the two characters are both of noble birth.”
― Ernest Bramah, Wallet of Kai Lung

I don't expect people to go looking for such info on the EF, but it's discoverable via the FAQs. FAQs are prominently linked on the Stories page, before the story categories, so I presume most people who've found the stories have already seen the FAQ link.

Assuming I want to know what sort of content is permitted, there are two possibly-relevant links on the FAQs page: "how to submit your work" and "legal and other". The "how to submit" page points readers to the EF post on reasons why stories get rejected.

I did actually read a lot of FAQs, how-to's and similar to my initial writing and, perhaps especially, refusal. But they differ some. Just look in this thread. It goes from a total No-No to mention but not describe.
I'll agree that the guidance isn't totally consistent on that issue*. But it's still more consistent than the advice you're likely to get from asking on this forum :-/

Unfortunately there are a couple of posters who have a bee in their bonnet about the under-age rule. In previous threads they've made misleading claims exaggerating how that rule is applied, no matter how often other authors point out that they're giving bad info.

Some posters will tell you that you cannot mention children AT ALL in a Literotica forum. Others (me included) will say that you can mention them, they can even play a major part in a story, and you can mention that somebody had sex before eighteen, just as long as you don't describe it in graphic detail. That contradiction probably isn't very helpful to a newbie, and it's irritating to keep repeating that particular discussion.

*Rule of thumb for documentation: more specific, detailed rules tend to trump more general statements. In Lit's case, "we don't want to be a haven for under-age stories" is a more important rule and needs to be prominent.

"But all the little whipper snapper did was watch and play with himself; he didn't have sex with anyone."

I'm always amazed by how many writers don't know that voyeurism and masturbation are sex acts.

Noticed this in just a brief time here. My guess is people think 'sex' involves two people so solo action is okay?

The topic at hand seems easy, just keep it light and vague "I'd been crushing on Jenny since sixth grade."

Don't forget, writing porn is also a sex act. In fact I can't think of many activities that aren't, when the humour is on me
