Somewhat disturbingly, anything in the incest category with the tags "daddy daughter" gets a shit load of views. Hey - give the public what they want I guess. I've never read one myself so I won't pass comment if they're actually any good.

Apparently 603 authors on here have the Famous Story badge - which is about 1 in 10 authors.

But that doesn't really tell the whole story. It's getting much harder to become the author of a famous story. Those who have joined Lush in the last 3 years have about a 1 in 20 chance of being the author of a famous story, that rises to 1 in 100 if you joined in the last 12 months. For authors who joined over three years ago, about 1 in 4 have the Famous Story badge.


Wondering, out of how many Authors? How many total Author's do we have. Of course I'm sure that counts people who have left Lush and no longer write either but their work still is seen.

I just joined six months ago, and have hope of getting a famous story soon. Regardless of the section it's in.

There are 5487 authors on Lush. 1396 of which have joined in the last 12 months.

Only 17 of those have managed to get a Famous Story.

Only 2 of those have managed to do it with stories that weren't Incest or Taboo: Kinky_becky and Nawtygirl7 who wrote Wife Lover stories

Why not read some stories instead

I have 17 (seventeen) stories here that are "Famous"; that is, with more than 30,000 views each.
Is this very high? Do any other folks have more "Famous" stories than this?2407_group_hug


Well done on your achievement, Buddy. That's a LOT of famous stories.

I haven't even written that many stories in total. Three of mine have passed 30,000 views with a fourth coming pretty close. It's only two months old and in the straight sex category so I'm very happy with that one. :)

I suggest a new Badge called Legendary Stories for 100,000 views.


Buz is the trailblazer for the new badge. I just noticed it on my profile! It's interesting to click on it - there are quite a few Lushies that qualified!

There's a few as well missing off that list. If you do a member search for people with the badge it comes up with 60 lushies instead of the last 36 you see if you click on the badge. [MEMBER SEARCH LINK]

A fantastic achievement and a huge challenge for anyone to get on that list - just two authors joining in the last two years are on it.

I'm achingly close in the Milf category with Boned, closing out year #2 at the end of the month.

28,502

I look in on it every so often to see that it's crept up another 500 or so, slowly edging it's way there.

There are some amazing writers on this site.

My quickie sex comp story has just under 3600 views. I've only recently started writing and I hope I can improve my skill as an author to the level as some of the writers here.

Please take a look at my recent stories. More to cum soon

I am blessed to have one "Famous" story in the Taboo category and another one with nearly 22,000 views in the MILF category. I am still amazed at them both!

I still get stoked when I get a new Famous Story. I am less than 60 views on one that will give me 30 Famous Stories, and that does not include 3 Legendary Stories. My most viewed story has just passed 220,000 views.

**************

I now officially have 30 Famous stories, not including 3 Legendary Stories. I do have 2 more stories with over 29,000 views heading toward Famous. I am sure not every person reads the entire story, but probably a high percentage that click on a story do read it. It's really exciting to have a lot of people read your artistic erotic creation. It is very inspiring.

Wow! It's blown way past that by now, over 71,000 views! Congrats!

I'm watching one of my first stories here, Officer Friendly, and hoping for the same results. I may have moved it up on my stories list and joked with Frank_Lee that I was going to race him, since we were both pretty close... but I lost by a landslide about a week later. lol (What?

I have 12 famous stories, with several nearing the famous mark.

I have no legendary stories, but I do have one that is close. Click the image below to help a girl out? :)

I'm a little over 1,000 views away from getting enough counts for my 5th Legendary story. It's amazing how fast the numbers can creep along.

My most viewed story sits at 222,000 at the moment.

I have two Famous Stories that are around the 32000 mark (so nowhere near Legendary). I think all my stories put together have around 100000 views, so...

That's famous enough for me anyway.

It took me 2.5 years to finally have a story that shot up to a Famous Story in two months. I guess most of my supernatural and sci-fi stuff isn't as popular as I would hope. I'm hoping over time more of my pieces will reach this goal... and maybe one day... I'll get a Legendary Story. I'm not sure why more people don't read my stories... but I do know that more and more are getting read as time goes one. Even the early pieces are getting some love from time to time.

So... I say having one story that is now Famous doesn't suck. If you're wondering... it's my only Christmas story & my only anal story... All She Wants For Christmas. It was the one that must have hit a chord with the readers because it's has more views than any other story... and some combined. Thank you to all who read it and made it Famous.

Thanks :)

I've had two others make the grade since then and have quite a few over 20k that will probably get there eventually.

Boned might hit Legendary in a couple of years at the current pace.

Good luck with yours! You could be surprised all of the sudden the way I was with mine and have it shoot up there.

As a wise Mod once told me... you'll get there with time and patience, and once you get one, more will follow. Took me over two years to get one... now I'm hoping more will come. Yours will come along soon too sweetie.

I'm always AMUSED by people who DO THE NUMBERS!!!

(Who REALLY cares!!!)

My stories, ONCE I PRESS SUBMIT, exist on their own...

I mean, It's NICE to get RR or EP, (because your peers acknowledge you...) but once they are OUT THERE I truly never give a fuck...

Some of my MOST FAVOURITE stories practically NEVER get READ!!! (Oh! The IRONY!!!)

Actually, (Checks!) I DO HAVE a FAMOUS STORY badge... But you know what? I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT STORY THEY BADGED!!!

It SHOULD be "HOTEL RENDEVOUS" but I bet it's NOT!!!

I have 6 famous stories. And impressed with two of those with views over 50K. Still a long way off the legendary badge.

I have two Famous Stories, one in Cheating and one in Mature. Those are icing on the cake, because I'm amazed every day that people read my stories.
