I don't know if it's some misguided sense of modesty or if a few little tweaks would make a difference, or if I should just make the change. I've had the adult content splash page up pretty much since I started reviewing, but now I'm not so sure.
There's no porn going on. I do discuss sex, but we're all grownups here and there's more sex on prime time TV. And certainly on cable. Even with my pictures, I'm definitely choosing more for what's going on than for what's showing. Even Mr. Naked Christmas Boy didn't have anything exactly hanging out, and he's buried in the archives now.
If there was a way to make the splash page turn off after you've been here once and should know what's inside, I'd leave it. But I could just make a couple of different word choices.
It's not that we're taking about guys having sex that should be the only reason for the adult content page. That's a lot like saying all m/m romance books belong on the erotica shelves at the etailers, and that's sure not true. If it's only how I discuss it, I can change the language a little, like I already have to do to post at Amazon. (The perils of machine censorship-I called a character's attitude 'cocky' and got the review kicked. Twice. Took me forever to figure out why.)
I think the splash page at Mrs. Condit's is great, it's basically a scolding to the sniffy reader.Getting something like that here means going to some paid hosting and different software and importing or exporting or basically doing something with the site that I'd have to get some professional help to do. I sure don't know how to do it and if I make Pam do it then she's not spending time writing Mountain novels and we can't interrupt that, can we?
Some sites just have a warning about mature audiences and away they go, others have the whole splash thing. Since I park most of the text behind a cut anyway to keep the home page from being 4 miles long, there's a built in pause before you go clicking. That should give you time to look at the header, right? I can put a warning up in words to go with the two men at the top. Or instead of "read more" on the cut, I can make it be "read more if you're over 18." Or some combo.
