I can see that a lot of books are selling under the erotica listing on Amazon, but they talk about not allowing pornography. My question is, how do they define what's porn and what's erotica?

JL Stratton | 4 comments I think that what they are not allowing is child pornography. Erotica is still fine and selling well. I have mixed feelings on this subject. On one hand, I am total disagreement with the whole idea of child pornography and feel that it ranks right up there with beastiality as far as my inappropriate meter goes. On the other hand, as disgusting as it may be, pulling previously published works does infringe upon individual's freedom of speech or freedom to read what they want. Of course, I also don't like the idea of there being a book on such a subject out there. I don't know, it's a slippery slope.

Well, I read about the book in question. I don't really think it's any worse than the child porn they currently have on the top 100 list under erotica, 'Daddy's Girl.' At least in the case of that other book they weren't talking about parents screwing their own children.

JL Stratton | 4 comments I heard from someone that they are simply looking at covers and deciding whether or not to pull a book by their own subjective opinion.

In that case, I agree with your statement and have no earthly idea how they are choosing which books to pull. My current work is listed below a number of stories I would consider questionable by title alone. Title like "My Stepmother" or "My Stepfather" (with a picture of a man spanking a late teen.)

I'm confused too. But, I hear ya.
