A group exclusively for erotica?

poet Anonymous

Pardon my ignorance for asking, but is there a group exclusively for erotica?  If not, could there be? If so, how would a member start one?   Thanks very much!

Someone merely needs to ask the Webmiss to create the group and volunteer to be a Director.

But unless the group has a specific goal alternative to merely sharing poems, there really is no point to having one.

So, you need a mission statement of sorts declaring what you hope to accomplish with such a group.

Like, "The goal of this group is to help you become a better writer of erotica by [ insert how here ]."

Johnny Blaze, Thanks a million! Those are exactly the answers I was looking for!

This is definitely something under consideration, just needs a solid concept and a person or team to run it.

Thank you; I will try to find a worthy concept and propose it to you.  I think anything "erotica" centered would attract a huge group!
Have a great week!

I think you, Rachel Lauren, and Lovey would be great Directors.

I'm sure you're not addressing me, but here's the initial suggestion I sent to Admin. today: "Here, in a somewhat broad stroke is what I’d suggest for an “erotica group.” A specific area devoted to those posting erotica and porn.
Discuss the differences between erotica, romance poetry and porn.  The evolution of erotica, your favorite personally penned pieces of each or those of your favorite authors,  how erotica is perceived and why, what is/is not thought of as acceptable in erotica and porn and why, the debate re: publishing erotica and porn on social media sites. A specific group to post erotica and porn for critique and comments by members who specialize in writing erotica and porn.  Possible offshoot of contests for pieces of specific types/topics of erotica.  More and more entries of erotic and even pornographic writing are appearing...this group would cater to them and expanding their art and ideas.

FYI

There's never going to be an Erotica, Porn, or Pornotica Group at DUP if no one volunteers to be a Director of such.

And is consistent - not always shedding accounts and registering new ones.

Yes, it takes effort and responsibility to run a Group.

Agreed
I do have a passion for erotica but I'm too hit and miss with my commitments
Can't count on me to lead anything I lose interest too quickly like a damn grasshopper

This wild be a good idea as long as eroticism didn't get sidelined into a mucky backwater

Exclusivity means not allowing others to join in, it's self inflicted censorship. Removing from the mainstream may give an impression of it being taboo.
