I just created a community page on Facebook for writers of erotica. In the course of doing that, I've naturally been contacting other pages and authors and trying to promote it. During this process, I've noticed several pages or feeds or groups that have disclaimers: NSFW (not safe for work), X-rated, Over 18 Only, etc.
Now I understand that most of us are prudish Americans and all that but...
When you stop to think about erotica, and particularly the taboo-ness (is that a word?) of it, does it ever amuse, annoy, or otherwise strike you that we feel compelled to include disclaimers about acts that are (for the most part) inherently natural and an integral part of the human experience?
Need I remind you that we all got here because of sex?
If I wrote about some dude sticking his finger in some chick's nose, no disclaimer would be required. But if it's a penis going into a vagina then suddenly I've got to flash a bunch of warnings lest someone get offended.
Just what I happen to be thinking about today. :)
