Responsible Smutting and the Eternal Triangle of Consent

Responsible Smutting and the Eternal Triangle of Consent

Jayne RenaultConference Room 3

In this session, I want to highlight the power and subsequent ethical
responsibility of today’s erotica writers. The overarching theme of the
session is consent, including consent between characters on the page, as
well as between the author and their audience, and between a submitting
writer and their prospective editor.
I will touch on how consent is established between characters, why
that is important, and how nuanced it can be; what editors mean when
they request that it be established; dispel the myths that this
insistence on enthusiastic consent is a mood-killer. I will also provide
tips on how authors might go about self-evaluating their work, and how
to court an editor, all from the perspective of a full-time erotica
editor.
