Punk rock died when the first kid said ‘Punk’s not dead, punk’s not dead’ – The Silver Jews, ‘Tennessee’
And if you’re not careful, it will awesomesauce all over you.
In much the same way that pop has bastardized music, the erotica genre has begun to become overrun with the equivalent of prefabricated boy bands. It’s full of formulaic content and rampant with emulators trying to capture the success of predecessors by imitating their work. Erotica is not a fucking formula:
Billionaire Asshole + Naive Virgin ≠ Good Erotica
It’s not even a guarantee of instant success. So knock it the fuck off.
This is what SmutPunk says.
Stop being an asshole. Stop being an unoriginal hack. Stop listening to what the masses or the corporate wankjobs are telling you to write when they try to force you into these silly, narrow little book categories and genres. Stop writing shit somebody else wrote before and did a better job of writing just so you can jerk off to a fat pay check and buy designer labels to lord over your frenemies.
Be brave. Be edgy. Take no fucking prisoners! Give no fucks about what others might think. Write exactly what you want, how you want to write it and never fucking apologize for your writing. Break the damn rules because they don’t fucking apply to your creative genius. Make the world bend to fit you. Stop being a mother fucking sheep. Effect change. Be the solution. Be at the forefront of the new Erotica Revolution. Become the evolution of erotic literature.
SmutPunk – get with the fucking program, or get left behind with the rest of the squareholes.
