    They are not permitted and will most likely get flagged as inappropriate. The same with explicit sexuality. We are supposed to keep our hubs at a PG rating, I think.

    hey Ken,

    Yes, explicit language is allowed, however, you will find that your advertising on that particular Hub will be disabled for the effort.

    Have you though about submitting the stories to a literary fiction site?  Hubpages is a grab bag topic-wise. Fiction and poetry are allowed, but because the site is supported by ads, you can't write about certain topics or use certain words that violate the Google Adsense program policies.  Even if you disable the ads for that particular hub, the "inappropriate" content would still be on the Hubpages domain.

      I have considered submitting the stories for publication elsewhere. Do you know any good places to submit? I'm familiar with Crazy Horse, Glimmertrain, and a few niche mags, but any insight would be most helpful! smile

    No, you are not supposed to use explicit language. In a nutshell no sexually explicit writing and no excessive profanity. It is unprofessional and doesn't have a place at hubpages. This article from the learning center explains better what is not allowed. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Mode … ol-Content

    A little extreme, but I kinda like it.
