    nothing explicit at all. i just like Victorian erotica, so have been wanting to write a hub about it, but not if it will get my Adsense taken away for life. the hub would itself be a fictional erotic story told in a Victorian sort of way, but would not contain any sexual words or activity...it would just sort of allude to it. but if even that is dangerous, i would like to know.

    if one of the HubPages staff could let me know, i would appreciate it. thanks very much.

      Hey cosette,

      It is sort of tricky answering this without reading the hub, as you can imagine. I'm a fan of Victorian fiction myself, so I think I know what you mean, but without reading the content it is basically impossible for me to tell you whether or not it will be any trouble.

      Here are my thoughts. We do not allow anything that graphically describes sexual acts (which I figure you already knew, but I should say it anyway just in case). Even in a figurative, non-literal sense, we do not allow writing that involves rape, bestiality, etc., or anything that involves characters under the age of 18.

      My advice is to email us at team@hubpages.com when you have finished it with a link to the unpublished, completed version. I know that is an unsatisfying answer, but I'll say that I'm fairly certain that it won't be a problem.

    You could possibly turn off all ads on the hub in question to prevent breaking Adsense TOS,but like norah says probably best to seek advice from the team at hubpages.

    Hi Cosette! My first couple of Hubs had quite a few sexual conotations -- there was even a sex scene in one. But it's all very tongue in cheek, and much is left to the imagination. Anyway, it did me no harm smile
    Hope you write your story -- I'd look forward to reading it.

      It takes me days to think up and write a story, and since I have to work 6 or 7 days a week throughout the summer, I don't think I'll manage another one until autumn at least.
      I still have to take a good look at your Hubs - will do soon!

    cosette - if I remember correctly you were one of the tiny number of Hubbers complaining about my errotic hubs - have you finally decided to catch yourself on and allow people to have free expression - Wow what a change - if you need any inside information about good sex let me know.

      i don't know who you are, yet you insert yourself into a non-fighting thread and immediately accuse me of something i did not do.

      with no proof, i might add.

      yet you say you have feelings.

      riiight....

      post a link where i attacked your hubs as being sexual. that is a lie.

      i know how to write erotica.

      good erotica. and part of that skill requires that you be able to write it in such a way that you excite your readers while at the same time respecting the TOS of the site you write on. i have never put any of it online, but since i like Victorian erotica so much, i thought i would write a hub about it. thanks, Irish. smile

    I would ask yourself why you want to write erotica on Hubpages. The protestant spirit is strong here. If I see any sex related hub I fall back in horror, in the same way I always look away during a Hollywood sex scene. (Only the French can do sex in movies because they actually keep the person in frame, but just the body parts.)
