Amazon taking down erotica, removing from Kindles

ctmurray (1475885) writes "The independent writers who publish on Amazon report erotica books containing incest are being taken down with no explanation by Amazon. Selena Kitt writes " I want to be clear that while the subject of incest may not appeal to some, there is no underage contact in any of my work, and I make that either explicitly clear in all my stories or I state it up front in the book's disclaimer. I don't condone or support actual incest, just as someone who writes mysteries about serial killers wouldn't condone killing. What I write is fiction."

Kindle's own TV ad features a book that has a story line of sex between a 19 yr old and their stepmother, defined in some states as incest ("Sleepwalking" by Amy Bloom). There are other books such as the Bible that describe incest. Please read the blog post for some insightful thoughts and post suggestions on what can be done to keep Amazon off the slippery slope."
