Wink The Ritual, by B.J. Scott, of Beau to Beau books

INTRO:
Loy knew that he should never pick up a hitchhiker, but it was raining and the man looked harmless. When the rain began to beat down in sheets and the road turned to mud, Loy’s old reliable car began to sputter. He had no choice but to stop at the house that was home to the hitchhiker, and the man had been nice enough to invite him to what he called “The Ritual.”

EXCERPT:
Loy struggled with his old, usually reliable car, but it seemed as if the car didn’t want to turn toward the house. Loy cranked the wheel hard and the car finally gave in. “Some are harder to break than others, but they all have their breaking point,” KC said, looking straight ahead. The lane was long and winding, but at least it was not made of mud. Strangely, the road was paved now, but Loy’s car still did not want to cooperate. It sputtered and slowed as they neared the old house that looked like something from a horror movie.

We've had to take the last two paragraphs down. These contained graphic depictions of people inserting appendanges into orifices in a communal setting.

We'll happily host a link to the missing paragraphs if the original poster wishes to add one.

But we are a family and work-safe site. It would be a shame if people found their workplace access to the site blocked because of a short but very explicit description. And some of our members only have decent internet at work: they are drawn from all over the world. Adding a link seems a fair compromise.

LINKS:

The Ritual; $1.25
1romanceebooks, 8 filetypes--but possibly each purchase only gets access to one.
1eroticaebooks; same situation--you have to choose filetype before purchase.
allromanceebooks, 8 filetypes; purchase gets only one.

Smashwords, 9 formats; 30% preview; purchase gets access to all filetypes.

(And I browse from work, and am glad for the removal of explicit content. I have plenty of explicit content in my PRS-505, and can download it at work sometimes, but I can't safely leave it on a screen I'm reading.)

Not cowardly Moejoe. Thank you very much you rude man. I was at school when I checked MR last night and that does not need to be on my screen in class had there been some kind of warning I would not have opened that thread. It has nothing to do with being afraid or prudish, just common sense. Too bad your not as open minded about the things you so proudly profess your hatred and disgust for. Your intolerence for authors and movies you deem beneath you is stunning.

All censors are cowards and thoroughly disgusting to anybody with a bent toward freedom. Not only that, but you're selfish to boot. Because YOU might get in trouble at school, because YOU might have some part of the web inaccessible at work, then everybody else doesn't get to see. I can't think of anything lower than a censor, nothing on this earth fills me with more hatred and disgust, apart from those who would gladly capitulate to the desires of that vocal minority. To do the bidding of the black-bar brigade is even more of a cowardly act than those who request the censorship in the first place. My opinion on authors and movies is just that, opinion, I would never dare stop anyone from seeing those texts or movies, and therein lies the difference.

Rude, sure I am, but you know what, that's what the web is all about, freedom of expression without some punk coming in and ruining threads with stupid NSFW requests. So if you don't like it, ignore me or GTFO.

Me, I'll take my own advice and GTFO of here before I get too upset about this ridiculous censorship ( of text no less, which makes this even worse, and even more disgusting).

Let's get back to the topic at hand and divert ourselves from name calling and invective, shall we?

If I might just explain for a moment, Moejoe:

1. Some of our members are in developing countries and can only get reliable internet access via work.
2. Others are in developed countries but like to access the site while working.

However, many members have workplaces which block certain sites, usually filtering for certain words and images. (e.g. It might not be a good idea to access a poultry-keeping site if they mention cocks a lot.)

3. Other members may not have their own computer and are accessing the site from libraries or college. These often have strict regulations about what is permissible, and people can be penailsed if they don't comply. (Believe me, I was once in a public library where the staff ejected and banned a guy for looking at something dodgy on a public computer.)

Now, we want to be as accessible to as many people as possible. It would be a nuisance for many of us if we couldn't get on the site because of a porn filter. And the members in developing countries might not have another way of getting here.

But we don't want to be unduly prescriptive. So the idea of linking to explicit content is a useful compromise. People aren't being deprived of the material: they just need to make one more click to find it. And that is their choice.

This is also why there's no problem in hosting erotica in the MR library. A person has to click in order to get it. And, while the title is picked up by search spiders, the content is not. So, once again a separate link works well.

If anyone can find a better compromise between allowing as many people worldwide to see the site, and maximising freedom of content, then please mention it, or send a PM. We're open to ideas.

There's a difference between "that's disgusting and decent people should never be exposed to it," and "close the curtains; not everyone wants to watch you in the act."

The text is still available... a click or two away. Behind a screen; not on public display for everyone to see, but not locked away from readers, either. And nobody's complaining that it's immoral or wrong, just not appropriate for this venue. (Besides which, teaser-text that people have to skim over quickly or close the tab for doesn't work to promote the book.)

Thank you Patricia and Elfwreck, I am not trying to cause anyone trouble and have no problems with the post, I just felt it needed a warning.
I still feel Moejoe's lack of tolerence is extreme in this case. I didn't do anything wrong and don't feel B.K.Write did anything wrong. As I said I would not have opened the thread at school where my students could have seen it had I been aware that the material was not appropriate.
