The goal is to create an anthology of quality erotica stories and poems which will ultimately be published.

Each contestant may only submit one Moment per round.

Edits up to the deadline are allowed and encouraged.
There are a few things we do not want to see in your creations, so don't bother.
No rape, no bestiality, no underage, no incest and no violence.

Each winner will also have the opportunity to join the group "Sensual Infusion" .
Every entry will get an in-depth review.
I recently sent out a survey that questioned the difference if any - between Pornography and Erotica...on keeping with that theme I'm issuing a special challenge that some of you may really embrace and others will feel especially challenged by...
So you have written your erotic entries for Round 23, now I ask you to consider what the same piece would read like if it were written in the style of modern pornography - think more Penthouse Letters....I need to see a real parallel between the two pieces, same characters, same basic plot. I really want to be able to do a side by side comp of the two. For those of you who do not wish to participate in the second part of this challenge, I will work on getting your reviews out for next week. This second round will also be extended, giving everyone more time to work on their entries! ".
Good luck! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
Start and end dates of this round: Nov. 21st-Dec 12th
Please contact this round's judge MD Maurice }if you have any specific questions regarding the prompt.
A big, heartfelt thank you goes out to all those awesome people out there who supported us from the beginning. We couldn't have done it without you.
