      You can, but you won't earn any money from them.

      You earn money on HubPages mainly from Adsense, and Adsense ads cannot be displayed on adult content.

      Unfortunately Adsense is like an old maiden aunt, and their definition of 'adult content' is very strict.  Even using a "naughty word" like "butt" can get you in trouble! 

      Your stories would certainly trip HubPages' filters and would be unpublished.  You can apply to have them republished if they're literary and not pornographic, but chances are they won't show any ads on them, so you would earn no money.

    I don't think so.

    Welcome to Hubpages! Adult content is not allowed on Hubpages. However, if they are literary pieces, and not just plain pornography your short stories may be allowed.  But before publishing, better contact the Hubpages team. But again, as you, the author, have created and classified them as "erotic", the likelihood of their acceptance is very thin.

    There is a place for everything and HubPages is not the place for erotica. If that's your thing, go to Literotica.

    Adult content is not allowed on Hubpages.  Here is what they say:

    "Hubs are not allowed to contain adult content. Below are some examples of prohibited adult content; this should not be interpreted as exhaustive list of what is prohibited. Further, your Hubs must also comply with Google AdSense Program Policy on Adult Content.

    The following are not allowed:

    Inappropriate language, including excessive profanity
    Content on sexual aids, toys, or enhancements
    Fetish content or content with sexual intent
    Sexually explicit writing, including descriptions of sexual acts, tips, or practices
    Nudity and lewd, obscene, or provocative images (including strategically covered nudity, see-through or sheer clothing, and close-ups of breasts, butts, or crotches)
    Or, links to sites that contain any of the above"
