Thread Info

This is an all-purpose discussion for talking about the challenges of writing sexuality in Middle-earth. One oft-voiced criticism of JRRT is that he did not address sex in his writings, particularly LOTR. Many fans have protested this characterization. Others have written works that treat sex and sexuality more directly and explicitly than did JRRT. There are constant debates about whether and how and why and in what manner fanfiction authors may present sex and sexuality in the ME universe.

All topics are allowed. This can be a controversial subject, and may be discussed in very anatomically explicit terms.

Readers are asked to be judicious in their choice of topic threads and to abstain from topics which they may find personally distasteful and/or distressing, and which they cannot discuss in civil language.

People who create topic threads are asked to use very clear titles and to post content warnings in the initial message so that users do not accidently enter a topic thread that they find personally distasteful and/or distressing.
