Everything But the Kitchen Sink is a gen multimedia anthology.

An adult het sister zine was proposed in 1985. It had two original titles: One was "Hint of Mint" and the other one was "This 'n That." This zine was retitled and became Adult Situations.

Gen, But Some Slashy Stuff

The first issue of the zine does not mention the genre of content (het, gen, slash), but instead has a statement about ratings.

However, the very first fanwork in the first issue is a very slashy Professionals poem called "First Day."

How can I describe
what the light was like
that tangled in your hair
and warmed your skin that day?
You stood relaxed,
waiting for me with a little, teasing,
secret smile, and you seemed
painted on the air
like the sky at sunset,
evanescent as a moonbeam, a gift of rainbows
just beyond my reach. I still take what the night
has to offer,
but I dream of the sunlight's promise
shining on the air that day.

From the editorial:
Welcome to the first issue of Everything But the Kitchen Sink. As you can see just by perusing our contents page, we are a multi-media zine accepting work in any and all fandoms. The rating of the zine ranges from "G" through soft "R"— we're saving the graphic sex and violence for EBTKS's sister-zine This 'n That. We believe you'11 enjoy the works in our zine (we certainly did!) and welcome your letters of comment.
