Steam VS Substance Header 


Prompt

Steam VS. Substance Cover 

Come debate two sides of the world's hottest-selling genre. 🔥 How spicy can relationships get without taking clothes off? On the other hand, what gives erotica purpose?

Pick a side. Prove explicit moments can be both ethical and important... or demonstrate why platonic gestures demonstrate superior love.

On the business/non-fiction side, discuss how codependency impacts authors, especially the tug-of-war between personal expression and the need for acceptance. Consider the romance business, the genre's relationship with censorship, or another related topic you're passionate about.


We are looking for three stories across the spectrum: 

  1. One erotica piece with extraordinary depth.
  2. One "mass appeal" intensity romance containing clever taboos made approachable.
  3. One PG-level romance focused on love that transcends personal ownership.
