    I don't mind them if they make sense for the plot, but I certainly isn't reading a novel just for such scenes.

    I will make two assumptions​
    1. You are male
    2. You are in no way qualified to determine what is rape and what isn't.
    The world has become desensitized to many things but that doesn't change the color of the sun.
    If either of my assumptions are correct then you are really in no place to determine what is rape or sexual assuault.
    As for Bestiality, I know tails and ears are popular. Playboy was built on that.But people seem to forget that it was real women cosplaying not actual animals.
    Also a hairless dog is still a dog n'est-ce pas?

    There's no point avoiding them if they're part of the story. If it's not supposed to be there, then it's not there. Sure, people can avoid them, but it's still part of the story.

    Why would you avoid R-18 scenes?
    Doesnt make sense.. =_=

    Welp, if its like syosetu where everything in the general section (not R-18) cant have any sex scene unless you want your author account gets banned, then I can understand...
    But thats the author's problem, not the reader's.

    If they end up doing it cause the plot is reasonable, yes. Just dont make the characters like rabbits and fck everywhere.

    Are you one of those people who would read a porn in class? lol
    Not that there's anything wrong with that (unless you get caught by the teacher), but I wouldn't dare to read it. I was rather embarrassed back when I read paperback novels in class and they just so happened to have R18 scenes even though I know no one else can see it.

    You don't understand what rape really means. Hard sex doesn't mean it. Most of rape in chinese novels are definitivaly rape, the fundamental point about this is consent, i like hentais or things like that the characters just want have fun in unusual way, rape is disgusting, at least make that a rape play.

    And sex and stories depend on author, the visual novel that i Grisaia no Kajitsu is incredible and only have sex (that is really involving) in the latter part. The importat of the sex is connecting the characters feelings. Buf if you want it just as an extra or fanservice just mention it and make a .5 skipable chapter, then people that don't want to read it can just skip the chapter.

    CBA to vote om poll due to lack of real choices, but if its need for the storyline then fine, but when used just to fill a plot hole or the writers can think of something better then no

    I guess you can put it when the characters are getting closer to each other. But, if I wanted to watch people smash, i'd just watch it on a video platform..

    Personally, I don't mind reading it at all.

    But I'd prefer if it was placed as side-story, I think it won't disturb the main-story if it was an extra or something, unless if it's R-18 novels.

    Well, if it's done as fan service then I'd probably just skip it or not read it at all. If there's a reason for it like in To Be a Virtuous Wife, then I'm fine with it. As long as it serves a purpose in the overall story, I'll read it.

    First, if you honestly want opinions, don't try to include jokes in your poll. They fell flat. There are people that like R-18 scene who are not a horny animal, and there are people that hate it who are not an asexual bacteria.

    Now to answer your question, I don't hate R-18 scenes, but I think most of them are terribly written. Inserting a R-18 scene to actually increase the enjoyment of a novel is super tricky, especially dealing with expectation and character. I have read hundreds, maybe up to a thousand novels, and right now I can only recall one, ONE, novel that I think have good R-18 scenes (the name is 魔魂启临, you are welcome). I read mostly male-targeted novels, divided like 60% CN, 20% JP, 20% original English works though, so maybe KR novels and female-targeted novels have better R-18 scenes.

    Who's your target audience? If your story up til this point is suitable for teens or younger and you're suddenly adding in a R-18 scene, you might want to think twice about actually writing it.
    If your story is for adults, you need to consider what the scene actually adds. Does it tell the reader something important to the plot, setting, or characters through the R-18 actions? Or can you achieve the same effect by fading to black after they kiss and make some innuendo?

    If you decide it's not really vital to add it to your novel, but still really, really want to write that R-18 scene because it fits perfectly, write the scene and just don't add it to the novel itself. Maybe you can upload it elsewhere if you want it to be seen, too. Or maybe you can turn the novel into smut and make the R-18 contents the purpose of the whole thing. I'm just an amoeba so it doesn't really matter to me.
