Appropriate for teens?

1 week ago | AdamBolander (Member)

I had a cool idea the other day. I want to make my main character's best friend a succubus, but with the twist that they're not sex demons. Just like the MC feeds on people's laughter, succubi feed on their feelings of affection and attraction, which leads them to be incorrigible flirts. But I'm worried that'll make it inappropriate for for my target audience of teens. I went ahead and wrote a few scenes with her, which you can read with the link below, and I'd like to get some feedback before I go much further. It's only a few pages long. Would you guys mind checking it out and letting me know what you think? Thanks!

    YA has sexual content in it fairly often. Unless you're talking like "upper" middle grades fiction (e.g. Hunger Games, the last couple Harry Potters), where it's dealing with more mature subjects but still has to be relatively safe for 10 or 11 year olds. Otherwise, it's an iffy topic, but it's not completely taboo or anything.

    Didn't read that closely but yes, a 16 year old can read your snippet and not be harmed for life or whatever.

    Sorry boss, but there's only two men I trust. One of them's me. The other's not you.
