I am struggling with the amount of sexual content in my story. When I first contemplated this project I was thinking of an erotic fiction, but the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to go mainstream with it. The series is about prostitution and prostitutes, so some sexual content is to be expected. This is an adult fiction, but I am wondering if I should write the sex geared more toward an NC17 or an R rating. I will discuss this with my critique group tonight. It is a question I have been struggling with.
