Age Play — We accept age play stories. It must be clearly spelled out that all participants are actually adults engaging in role play. Such stories should be in Taboo or another appropriate category and have an "age play" tag.

Since age play stories should all be tagged, there's no need for another category.


I guess it comes down to what should be a category and what should be a tag - is it worth having a separate Toys category when any story involving toys could be under Masturbation or Straight/Lesbian etc instead? Or should Toys be expanded to include any kind of prop - outfits/uniforms etc

I would love to see a Humour Category/tag and I think it would be very popular. There are some ridiculously funny stories here that are still pure filth.. (the authors know who they are evil4 ) Haven't people loved bawdy humour forever?

A love letter category/tag sounds great. They can be just as beautiful as a love poem.

I suppose it's really about what the "focus" of the story is. I've read stories in the Toys category, to use your example, which were most definitely about the toy(s) and how the characters explore and experiment with them. I have also read stories in other categories that involve toys but it's not a "key" part to the story.

To be honest, the majority of stories fall into several categories and that's why tags are important. Really, we could potentially strip it back to just a handful of categories and put more emphasis on appropriate tagging.

However, I think adding more categories only makes the matter worse. The majority of people are not looking for something so specific as "college stories" or "workplace stories". And if you are looking for Age Play stories, for instance, a quick search should bring them all up and you can choose them from within whatever category most appeals to you.

Mistress_Of_Words did a fair attempt of categorising the categories for a forum post, with mixed success in my opinion.

(Bwahahaha, evil laughing!)

How about a "Ridiculous" category for those stories that really ARE!

(i.e. the first time story about the young girl who chooses a gang bang with three 12 inch cocks as her first sexual experience, or maybe the stories with "ALL CAP DIALOOOOGGGGG!")

not a search I need to make I'm afraid.

Actually, I do. the "mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm" should certainly receive a fresh look with an eye on editing.

While you're at it, there's also a "fuck" with 23 "U"s in it

There's a straight sex category, which caters for anything 'vanilla'.

I also agree with Trinket on wanting a humour section. And how about unifying the Love Poems category to simply Poems? Some stuff in the Love Poems category just aren't love at all. Also, there obviously is a demand for DILF, sure not as much as MILF, so why not, as Poppet suggested, edit the MILF category to encompass DILF as well? I won't go on about the DILF because it's obviously been vetoed forever.

I haven't gotten to read through all of the responses yet...so not sure if someone has already suggested this or not. If they have ... sorry.

But I would love a D.I.L.F. section.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned BBW or Squirting. Personally neither are categories I'd be interested in, but maybe there are members on Lush that will be?

If I am editing a story, all 'Mmm's are capped at three Ms. No exceptions!

thumbup Definitely would love to see a humor category. I know this has been mentioned before.

Also agree with just a plain old "poetry" category. I have 2 poems; one is an ode to my broken vibe and the other is about gifts for the 12 days of Sexmas. Not so much love in either of those poems. In fact, how about a Lust Poem category. evil4



It won a potato. Aren't you intrigued?

Maybe it needs to be looked into again.

I'm not sure how people want to read MILF and not DILF. I know for one thing, the idea of a younger female, and older man is hot. I've even written one or two. I also think it's hot. I know others would do too. I don't think it'd be hard to change the category to MILF/DILF so we can expand this site to please even more people.

Maybe DILF isn't searched as much because there isn't a category for it. If there were, maybe it might be searched more.

I also think a humor (not humour) category might be fun, I mean we just did a comp on it, and the stories did AMAZING!

Lush really has almost every category imaginable, but we might be able to add a humor category. It's really the only thing I can think of!

How about a mixture of categories? I would like to see a BDSM mixed with beastiality and necrophilia. I always wanted to read stories about somebody beating a dead horse.

(If you are going to get upset, please re-read the post an realize that it is a joke.)

already have a reluctance catagory. as for seduction, that's too broad - think about it - a daughter seducing her father: incest. a guy seducing a guy: gay. girl seducing girl: lesbian. girl seducing guy: straight sex.

None.

For me, Lush works perfectly as it is. By using existing categories, you can find what you want and avoid what you don't want. The categories work best as broad strokes. The story tags allow for finer categorisation - which is why it is important that authors use them... and the search function up there in the top right is one of the best I have ever used.

I've written about witches, machine sex, dinosaurs, reluctance and never had a problem finding them.
