Paypal is coming down hard
on online erotica retailers. The service has sent demands
to such ebook self-publishing sites as Smashwords, AllRomanceEbooks and Bookstrand, demanding that they remove all titles containing bestiality, rape-for-titillation, and incest- including the popular 'pseudo-incest' category of stepparent or stepsibling sex.
Smashwords has published an explanatory and apologetic letter
, sent to all Smashwords users, on its website.
For an insider's take on the situation, see this lengthy blog post
from well-known indie erotica author Selena Kitt.
