Slash Kink Discussion and Fiction List
An automated list that encompases all fandoms, this is for the kinky crowd, not for the faint of heart. To learn more about it go to Slash Kink on the Web where you'll find specific information on list content, a sampling of the fiction, and a form to join the list.[4]

The Slashkink fiction and discussion list FAQ

A couple of years ago two guys who were tired of only finding vanilla fiction in their favorite fandom founded this list. When real life demanded more time from these guys, I was asked to take the list. I (Alexis Rogers) did that because we all felt a place for all fandoms and most kinks is a necessary presence in fandom.

Age Statements:

This list requires an age of consent and knowledge statement from everyone before being allowed on the list. I keep these statements private as they reside only on my hard drive and one back up disk. I delete the statement when a subscriber leaves the list. If you rejoin under a different email address, a new age of consent and knowledge statement will be requested since the age statements are filed under email addresses. This information is shared with no one.

I don't care what any subscribed puts in their egroups profile. (Mine has almost no information and is not displayed.) The age of consent and knowledge statement must be addressed to me and contain information necessary for this list. The age of consent where the list is based in eighteen; other areas of the planet have different ages of consent. This site, may help determine the age of consent where you are.

So the age of consent statement only need read that the subscribed is of legal age where he/she lives. I depend on the subscriber's honesty in this matter. Then I need a statement that say the subscriber understands the nature of the list, the kinks, and the homosexual aspects. These will be listed here and in the request for an age of consent and knowledge statement. Please read them carefully to avoid subbing and then quickly unsubbing.

Substance of the list:

This list is open to all fandoms and most kinks. I say *most* because there are some *kinks* like actor/real person slash that are not allowed on the list. I don't have many rules about what is allowable because I want this to be an open forum for people looking for fiction and discussion.

There is no flaming allowed on this list. It is an active forum that covers a variety of topics including but not limited to gay rights, religion, and politics, in a polite and mature manner. Anything that disrupts that will not be tolerated. I like the attitude of the list the way it is and don't wanted it disrupted. State your opinions while respecting the opinions of others.

Stories with fictional characters under the *magical* age of eighteen appear, and are actively encouraged, on this list. Since this topic is a hot button for many people, please consider this:

A complaint that reflects a certain feeling about the subject of underage fiction is stated:

"I will not go into detail about my own problems here, but I strongly suspect that we *all* feel that underage fiction is an area of potential problem --and rightfully so. All moral and sociological discussion aside: Your ass can be arrested for posting this sort of thing, and don't forget it."

The response to that statement:

NO IT CAN'T!!! I have researched the laws regarding child pornography and you can too by going to this link I have copied the most important part here.

"any visual depiction, including any photograph, film, video, picture, drawing or computer or computer-generated image or picture, which is produced by electronic, mechanical or other means, of sexually explicit conduct, where:

(1) its production involved the use of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct, or;

(2) such visual depiction is, or appears to be, of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct;

(3) such visual depiction has been created, adapted or modified to appear that an identifiable minor is engaging in sexually explicit conduct; or

(4) it is advertised, distributed, promoted or presented in such a manner as to convey the impression that it is a visual depiction of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct."

Notice it says NOTHING about the written word. Writing a story involving an underage fictional character is not illegal. The most you can face is the moral outrage of a narrow minded population.

The law seems to be clear on this point and people around the world are working on completely clarifying the issue of fictional characters under the *magical* age of eighteen as completely legal since the age of consent around the world and with the states of the US is not the same and in many places is well under the age of eighteen.

Bottom line here is that if you object to stories with fictional character under the age of eighteen with others of the same age or with older characters, you should either not join the list or *delete* the stories that bear the warning of underage characters. This item is not up for debate on-list or privately.

I, the ListAdmin, am into *bdsm* in a big way, but this list is not limited to only *bdsm* but encourages most kinks like the male pregnancy idea. Should this be of interest, check out http://www.crosswinds.net/members/~mpreg/ for stories under this theme.

*bdsm* or leather sex, including a large number of kinks and fetishes under the *bdsm* umbrella are included, and actively recruited, for this list. Such things as bondage, domination and/or Sadomasochism (including hardcore stuff) are to found here. Under the umbrella there will be sniffing, licking, watersports (piss play), candle wax, enemas, fisting (handballing), toy play, relationship play (Master/slave, Owner/pet, Parent/child or Daddy/boy, infantilism), genderbending and maybe even scat play.

Concepts that may or may not be considered *bdsm* (i.e. humilation, domestic discipline, corporal punishment) are also included here.

Stories will be labeled so that a reader might pick and choose. Don't like a kink, skip it. Other types of kinkiness include hardcore emotional twists such as anonymous sex, characters in warped, unhealthy relationships, and badboys who are genuinely BAD, not just misunderstood.

Also included are the standard fanfic favorites like rape, rape fantasies, incest, torture and death.

Frankly I would like to see violence at a minimum since it is acceptable throughout fandom, and society where no one blinks an eye. The purpose of this list is to see sex in all its forms and taboos, where sexual energy is respected and reveled in, where sex is celebrated rather than repressed.

Fiction posting:

Using either the *0* post, my personal preference, or at the beginning of the story,

Title: Author/pseudonym: Email address: Fandom: Pairings: Warnings/Treats Rating: Status: Date: Archive: Series/Sequel: Category: Author's website: Disclaimer: Notes: Summary:

Warnings that are required: Death, rape, underage characters. Please list the major kinks in the story such as Daddy/boy or infantilism and others so the readers may pick and chose their kinds.

Have fun, explore the kinks, delete those that don't tickle your fancy. [5]
