Interview with FreeLove
1. What inspired you to start writing rated R material?
Reading R content on Wattpad and realizing that really, my content had no intimate moments or close relationships - I wanted to have these moments for readers to relate to and talk about. Sure I went overboard with the story on this account, but go big or go home right? I'd never get this.. bad.. on my main account, but it helps me get better at sexy scenes..
2. Are all of your Rated R themes centered on sex or are they focused on other adult themes as well?
No, my other story on Mr_Aek "Impossible Possibilities" should be rated R, I decided not to do so to maintain ranking but still think I may mark it R, not cause of sex scenes, but because of adult ideas/concepts (makes you think!) though on this account YES all are sex-related, its my "account of shame" that I (kinda) hide from my facebook XD
3.Do you find most of your audience below the age of 18?
It's wattpad, so unfortunately. I try not to think about it... not much you can do - I wish there was a way to better hide R content form minors, but that's pretty much impossible.
4.Do you think there should be a rated R section? Why or why not?
No. As great as R content is and as much as I'd love to be read its NOT a good idea to make erotica novels "easier to find" this will make underage reading even more ramped than it already is. (and it's already bad enough) don't want to make it easy!
5. Do you think that erotica rated r books are overrated?
there needs to be an "NC-17" rating for erotica, my story is a perfect example it SHOULDN'T have so many reads, it should be hard to find since it is erotica. IE not allowed to dedicate chapters, can't talk about it on forums, no ranking, read list adds/votes don't show up in news feeds - It's too easy to find >.>
6. Do you think that erotica is a type of pornography?
Yes, and I think Wattpad does to as you can see if forced most my chapters to private when an admin found the story cause my story is exclusively erotica, unlike most which are normal stories with occasional sex scenes. I'm surprised that admin didn't delete the story...
7. How graphic are your scenes in your rated R book?
Well...... lets just say I don't hold back. It gets as graphic as it can get with a guy writing a female point of view during grotesque sex scenes.
8. What makes your book stand out from other books on wattpad?
very heavy erotica content, most won't even go where I've gone with the book. BDSM, gore, fetish - most won't even touch that, to - non-normative. I decided fuck it - and tried it out, never expected to have the story more looked forward to and popular than anything posted on my other account. Kinda disturbing people are so attracted to the story, it's just one scene after another back to back non-stop.
9. How often do you write? When and where compared to your other pg 13 books?
My stories on my PG-13 account are mostly all written (except one which I just posted up a teaser). This story however is literally written the day or or the day before I'm supposed to post. The keys are literally still warm with the last sentence before I his "publish" on wattpad. Due to shorter chapters (1200-2500 words) it normally takes no more than 30 minutes to an hour to spit out a chapter.
10. Do you have anything you want to say to your readers?
Be brave, I actually heard last week from a published author "Write about your fears" because that is where the most emotion comes from I feared writing about sex in any way and to conquer that fear I spew out "I Survived the Witch"
Also, I'm looking for more R content, if you have something well-written with plenty of hot sex scenes message me, I may be able to post on this account (since it appears I have a shit-ton of fans already and that count grows by 20-50 a day) You'll get plenty of reads and a light edit from me to boot XD
Also also, 18+ please!! XD
