Eroticism
from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
Writing or drawing which emphasizes sexuality. Futurians, Moonrakers, Insurgents and others have at times published works which would probably be barred from the mails if they were inspected, but often in these productions they are laughing at sex at the same time they exploit it, for literary, artistic, or humorous purposes. Lowndes defends the practice as necessary to offset the goody-goody element which is from time to time strong in fandom.

Writing or drawing which emphasizes sexuality. Futurians, Moonrakers, and other have at time published works which would probably be barred from the mail if they were inspected, but often in these productions they are laughing at sex at the same time that they exploit it for literary, artistic, or humorous purposes. The defense offered by Lowndes is that it is necessary for them to stress such subjects to offset the goody-goody element so strong in fandom. The excuse for the Vomaidens is similar.
