What do you say about Literotica to friends and family?

I kind of got into this backwards. I was writing material that had some NC-17 passages and then I found Literotica.

Now I tell people I'm posting stories on-line but I haven't - yet - told them which site.

I have no friends or family, but if I did, I wouldn't tell them anything about this or any other site I visit. It's none of their damned business.

I don’t say anything at all. What I do here is only my business, but I don’t hide the fact I’m on this site. If they find me here,they just find me here🌹Kant

I guess I'm the first to say, I tell anyone and everyone about Lit and give them a link to my stories. The shock value alone is worth the price of admission.

I'm free, white, and well over twenty one. They can't kill me. Well, not legally anyway. I have fun with it.

I joke that I'm on trashy romance forums, but only to friends and family that I know will be entertained by it.

A very, very UNgood idea to tell anyone, unless they are prepared to offer a similarly vulnerable confession and they can be trusted. I had a woman try to kill me when she discovered my writing. It was a very near thing. She led a vicious campaign against me for years after with the intention of killing me.

Why do so many women think they are the infallible moral arbiters?

I tell them that it's a writing website. None have asked me what kind. But I've had erotic poetry published in the past so they know I write that.

I'm old, not much embarrasses me anymore...I tell everyone who asks what I do all day now that I'm retired. I give them my card with links to Lit on the back and links to my website on the front.

When they ask what kind of things I write, I tell them porn what else would a dirty old man write about.

Literotica is my one and only deep dark secret, known only to myself. I often wonder what would happen if I was hit by the proverbial bus and my family managed to crack the encryption code for my stories; discovering my secret. It would be scandalous...!

I hope they do...!

I've never told anyone about what I do online except my husband. He on the other hand has told a few friends that I like to read sex stories on the comp and I in turn have told those same friends a bit about his perusing some porn sites. Up to now no one has ever really pushed to know more that I know of. Perhaps our computer repair geeks might know a bit more than they should, LOL.

I have some friends and relatives who take creative writing classes or are members of writing workshops. Some invite me to their readings or give me copies when their works are published in small circulation anthologies. Others have vibrant conversations at cocktail parties about how much fun it is participating in NaNoMo.

I say nothing.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I think sanctimony is underestimated. It is normally very shallow, black and white, which makes It difficult to attack and ultimately the sanctimonious get control. There are political movements based on sanctimony. It is truly frightening. I too sit and listen without comment. I was writing children's stories for ages and I was attacked for that. Any creativity is a risk unfortunately. I think it goes a long way to explain one bombers etc. They want control of other people's creativity. I think too it is a part of narcissism.

Absolutely nothing to anyone except my partner, and he was the one that pointed me at Literotica. He browses on here and he reads ALL my stories. - lucky for me he likes them! But neither of us talk to anyone else about my little hobby!

Yeah, I don't tell anybody. I've posted over 125 stories and not a fucking soul in my real life knows it's me.

Oops, now you do.

I don't tell anyone the name of the site, but sometimes I share non-sexual things that I read here with others. The only people who know I frequent Lit are a select few souls that I met here who later became real-life friends.

I have nothing to lose by telling people "I write smut on this particular website". My damn job coach knows and she's trying to help me make money off my "hobby". It's surprisingly difficult to find gainful employment as a blind person. Not for lack of trying on my part - it's usually the HR people being uncomfortable around me. Yeah, fuck, disabilities exist. Stop being such pussies about it.

I've told people. That fuck would I care what they think? Nobody has had the curiosity to look for the site, that I know of. I think I've even linked my sories on facebook once or twice. There's a link on my Fet profile.

This is something I keep to myself. I can't think of anyone I know who wouldn't be shocked to find that I have an interest in erotic literature, let alone that I write sex stories. I come across as dull and a bit old fashioned.

My wife knows firsthand that I have many kinks, and fortunately she shares them. Everyone else assumes we're a nice 60-ish couple. We are, we just like sex as much as we did when we were in our twenties, but with a bit if Cialis and Jo lube.
