@Tolazytomakaacount: Ah, I was thinking more along the lines of... there's a marketing class in high school? Definitely not on my curriculum.

"I think it's like in the rules, but most people just ignore them until they get reported."

The ToS is a little bit confusing, since it starts by making the statement that the content can't be illegal in the US or the artist's own country and that "Generally speaking, material that would fit into the MPAA's "Rated R" category and below (PG-13, G, etc.) is allowed on Smack Jeeves."

After this, though, it mentions using Mature Content warning for things that aren't okay for minors.

The R rating means "Contains some adult material. Parents are urged to learn more about the film before taking their young children with them." By definition it does NOT mean "unsuitable for minors" so the existence of the Mature Content warning means that content above an R rating IS allowed, and everything after this is establishing the criteria by which Mature Content is permissible or not permissible. It states that Legally Obscene material such as Pedophilia is explicitly banned, and then there's this:

"Comics that present material with great (or sole) priority and importance placed on evoking sexual arousal from the audience while lacking substantial quality in art, focus or presentation on other topics of interest [ie: romance, comedy, etc] are liable to be removed for bearing too close of resemblance to pornographic material rather than a comic that tackles adult subject matters."

Take special note of the word "while" in that description. If graphic sex wasn't allowed on SmackJeeves they wouldn't bother making this distinction, they'd just say things like "no graphic sex" "no depiction of genitalia in a sexual context" and other clear and concise rules like that. What they did instead was give a definition of what counts as "too close of resemblance to pornographic material" that is just loose enough to give them some latitude to enforce it based on their own discretion.

This brings me to how these rules have been enforced in practice - which is really the only important part. I've been reading comics here for over a decade, a lot of which are very sexually explicit, and I've NEVER seen one get removed. I've also never heard of SmackJeeves warning artists that their content was too explicit. I'm not saying that it has definitely never happened, but it must be extremely rare, because the overwhelming majority of the comics that are sexually explicit are not just porn for the sake of porn and therefore don't violate the terms of service.

The sexually explicit comics I faved 10 years ago are still there and still as explicit as ever. There is no "ignoring [the rules] until they get reported" because no one gets reported, or if they do, nothing is done because they aren't breaking the rules.

That being said, I personally think paywalling graphic sex is a great practice - it definitively protects the virgin eyes of impressionable minors while incentivizing your fans to pay you for your efforts. For sure, you should get a Patreon no matter what you decide.
@ElectronicYaoi: I get so excited whenever I see it update on Webtoons. I can honestly say that I've read and reread it about five times. So thank you for the time and effort to make such an amazing story. I eagerly await the next chapters/pages.

SOMETHING NEW <3
I really loved the concept of this. I like the intensity between the two characters and how you have been portraying things with utmost realism even in this fantasy concept. I would like to see it complete soon and also in future to see it as an adaptation for some sort of a TV series on Netflix or so.
@Battle Ravyn: Oh wow! Thank you so much, that’s so sweet of you 😊
@ElectronicYaoi: OMG Hendrix and Julian!!!! I love that comic! It's one of my top ten fave.
