Over the years, erotica has become a growing industry. Publishers can afford to publish only erotica eBooks, drawing an author base easier than before. With such a presence growing within the industry, many authors have found certain topics taboo. The boundaries within erotica have become increasingly shortened, leaving many wondering what happened. Taking a brief step back, consumers can see the gaps within the growing market. Missing in the erotica market are some surprising categories many readers would never be opposed to buying. Examining at quick glance these left out categories, we can better understand the need for such materials. Whether publishing companies decide to include such topics remains up to them, however, no publishing company should be censored to not include a topic they wish simply because it’s taboo. In fact, many of the categories would be quickly accepted, were it not for such extreme efforts of censorship.
Barely Legal is a category that given the society we live in, is surprisingly unrepresented in erotic eBooks. Taking an honest look, this really shouldn’t have to be a category. Authors are find it increasingly more difficult to involve younger adult characters, especially involving relationships to older partners. This is a relatively new distinction, one that was never expressly forbidden, but actually quite accepted within publisher guidelines. The reason for the censorship regarding this topic often leaves authors frustrated. Many authors are more than eager to stick strictly within company guidelines, especially within legal parameters, but yet this legally permissible topic has become an erotic eBook taboo. For those curious about this erotica topic, or just want to see what books of this nature include, check out the following books.
Incest erotica is a category that has recently taken off, and become increasingly popular. Unlike pseudo-incest stories, the incest category focuses on consented sexual acts committed by biological family members. The censorship regarding the topic of incest could never be greater, with almost every publishing company forbidding it outright. Manuscripts that so much as mention incest are instantly rejected. What’s so confusing, is the market for incest erotica could never be greater. Many cultures have even come to accept incest, leaving it outside the taboo category. For the United States however, incest continues to be taboo and extremely censored by publishing companies.

BDSM is a massive category covering a wide range of subjects. Over the years, this topic has grown in popularity. What’s surprising is how different aspects of BDSM are getting censored. While the category could never be stronger, or more relevant, the scope is slowly being narrowed. Topics like mind control, reluctance, and sadism/masochism still carry a taboo stigma. While readers are consuming these eBooks at an ever increasing rate, the market is seeing a stand still. The stand still is not due to a lack of authors, but merely censorship of publishers. If you’d like to explore the many different scopes of BDSM check out the following titles.
