Okay, I guess I'm going to have to ask you for a list of all the story 'must haves'. I'm pretty sure you'll be pleased by my takeover of the famed Hypoxia brand...trust me, it's for you're own good

Sink or swim. I think you've hit the right solution.
I tried...but the water is just too cold today. I neither sank nor swam, but I did scream real loud just before I ran back to bed and pulled the covers over my face

That's what surgeons say just before they whip out the scalpels.

ObTopic: Some stories work well with zero explicit sex -- even LW stories. Voyeur-Exhibition and Romance often omit "home runs". And some Incest stories manage with no explicit incest, although that may depend on how 'incest' is defined. Does "second base" with siblings count?

UPDATE: I've just shifted all responsibility to two unsuspecting souls who fell for my plaintive solicitation for advice. My plan going forward is to prominently identify them as the Final Editors and Creative Directors so all blame will be cleverly shifted to the innocent.

(I know someone's going to ask; If the stories actually do well, I plan to edit the names of said Editors out...and reap all the fame and glory for myself...and all $$$ sent via PM )

So many stories are "blah blah blah then they did the sex", when for me the characters, the context and the scenario is EVERYTHING, and by that I mean in an erotic sense. Without it there is no payoff. One of the characters could be an innocent princess for instance, who fantasizes and wishes to be corrupted and has an attitude, and that is hot to me, if it is portrayed well. Setup I feel is highly undervalued sometimes

I tried that with Hypoxia. Didn't even bite. Apparently the worm wasn't big enough.

I'd try all your suggestions...but it's really nasty out today

Not everyone comes to Lit looking for 100% erotica. Here lately, I’ve found a greater interest in writing a “story” with substance beyond just being erotic. That motivation led me to the Non Erotic category with “The Mantis”. As a “side project” it’s refreshing, a step back from writing 1st person. It’s still a TG/CD story at its core, but without the stress of working erotica into it right away. I have yet to decide on whether or not it will contain anything sexual beyond flirting and touching, etc. 🌷Kant

My advice: Write what you want. Stop when you're done. Submit what you can tolerate. If it doesn't turn you on, don't post it, or post under an alt so nobody blames you.
I'm with Hypoxia. My highest-rated story has exactly one not-very-explicit sex scene, but coming from that particular narrator, that scene feels right. Other stories are much more explicit. I'm a fan of listening to your characters and following their lead, although I swear I'd like to smother some of them with a pillow so they'll shut up!

Best wishes as you find your way!

Tapeworms do not entice. HP Lovecraftian or RE Howardian worms are more imposing, menacing, and thus persuasive. Size helps. Fangs and flames do more. But mucus, ick...
