I just want to ask about your definition of "• Soft boys love"? I understand that it mean no explicit penetration , no genital expose...but what about scene that surely intercourse but covered up properly? Or it it just vanilla and a little bit naughty action are accepted?

If I remember well, last time I submitted an artwork with some wax playing and bondage but no genitalia, not even censored, it was just cut off the picture.
So we accept kinky art as long as it's not censored and just evocative. So no censored sex scenes but not necessarily vanilla.

Oh, thank you for explain, I had to ask because I have two pieces, one in medium shot and have a content that closer to the demand, but it have a bare ass and fairly provocative; while the other one surly safe but focus more on environment. I would consider base on you info, thank again.

Characters from movies unless they are origially yours wouldnt count because it would be fan art and they want original characters only. I believe the same may go for real ppl but im not 100% sure...
