Content Rating is another form of categorization implemented to ensure readers find exactly what stories they’re looking for. Some readers prefer clean and wholesome content or Young Adult stories over super steamy or dark stories.

The main factors that could be included in a story that would make it mature are: 

  • Graphic depictions of sexual acts
  • Explicitly written violence and gore
  • Tagged themes like Menage, NSFW, Sexy, or anything of the like

Fade-to-black sex scenes are considered non-mature as well as any story in the Young Adult genre. 

Should your mature story feature some triggering content, be sure to include content warnings to inform readers.
