So I did an experiment - I posted a story under a different pen name, to test the theory that stories that include rape, non-con, and mind control get more view than romance.

Sadly, my theory is correct. I wrote a story in about 30 minutes. It's terrible. I didn't even spell-check it, and I put no thought into the plot. And despite getting a lower score, it got twice the views and three times the votes as "It's not the size that counts", which is a story I've put a ton of effort into, had it edited by authors who I think are fabulous, and meticulously planned.

Apparently if you want people to read your work on this site, it's best to write rape scenes.
