In erotic publications (where I also publish erotic fiction and a sex advice column) the feedback I get can be overwhelming in some ways - some fans transfer the feelings the writing evokes in them to me. Don't get me wrong, I hope to awaken positive, happy sexual feelings in people because I think sex positivity is great. However, there is a lot of immaturity in the messages I get concerning my writing in erotic publications.

In general writing forums, even in poetry forums I tend to encounter people who are offended by sexual themes and get all holier-than-thou on me in comments or send me vicious private messages. I try to title my writing appropriately so they needn't look at anything they don't choose to, still, they seem to feel the need to object. I also encounter violent objections to some of my poetry written from places of personal darkness.

I'm so pleased by this group you've created - it allows me to share in a different environment than any other I've encountered. Here, there's a sense of liberal acceptance and an appreciation of art. I expect that any criticisms I receive here will have to do with style and execution rather than any forbidden subject matter.

It doesn't surprise me that people send you hateful emails. Conservatives, xtians, religious people in general are very hate-filled people. Jebus forbid that anyone else be happy with who they are, or in celebrating sexuality.

I'm glad that you like the group, and thanks for your contributions.
I want to second what DG said. I am glad to have a forum to talk to like minded, nonjudgmental people. And thank you KS for your contributions thus far.
