Does anyone here enjoy reading?

Maybe light novels in genres like Isekai, or progression fantasy or litrpg? If so, has any of you found somewhere smoll and teen girls receive some love? Or maybe one of you has a passion for writing but not the energy or desire to put it in game format and has written a few chapters.

I would love to read a good story (that actually has plot) where the mc might go around and corrupt or enslave some underaged girls on his way to defeat or maybe become the demon lord.

Newsgroups used to be great for erotic lit of all sorts. Google sucked up Usenet quite a while ago but the alt.sex.stories.moderated group still remains ( not that I would want Google knowing what I'm reading however ). The same stories and tonnes more can be found at sexstories.com . They have a disclaimer about the kind of content you're talking about but the archives are not deleted and are easily browseable/searchable. That site is owned by Mindgeek, so again. There's large collections that can be had via torrents with a dht search as well. All this is more than you'll ever be able to read lol. Lastly of course there's many smaller niche communities found all over where people exchange fanfics of all genres.

If you absolutely need to actualize the stuff from your imagination then I would recommend spending some time with our new AI driven future. Already trained models that can spew out written smut of all kinds ( or train your own ), diffusion models that can render any image in any style.. even video, or the the chatbots that can be customized to be as.. demon lord as you like :)

I worked with AI dungeon (well as beta thru launch user, gave input to the discord server). I stopped using it when they went metered paywall. But point is can attest to the AI driven future of smut mentioned above. 90%+ of "content" they trained AID on was basically smut cuz thats all it was used for in the early days. And, though you had to fight with it at first to get good story going, it did work quite well. Not sure how much of it's been sanitized and coin op managed since 2019 though.

Ecchi and Literotica wise, NovelAI has basically been the monopolized standard since. But its not exactly free and has issues of it's own. Particularly, controversial topics aside, the main problem in AI driven story creation is how to formulate the system to gen it's output. In short, it's a flow chart problem which has mostly only been addressed through "game-ification" formulas.

A bit technical word salad I know, but basically, a story has to follow some kind of logical progression and AI in sofar as NovelAI, they've applied game building mechanics to this approach.

To that end, how your story is formulated is greatly influenced by genre, how it us told (pov formatting) the number/types of characters, those characters personalities and lastly how you craft the start of the story. These all combine to very mechanically control the output which is then restricted to the "standards" of that genre, format and character psychology interplay, and the frame of reference for these standards is the lit used in the training data.

In short, it will largely want to churn out like every other dime-store novel's version of that story in that genre with that type of wording. So you get like over used and standardized tropes, vocabulary and situations restricted by genre and classical lit and etc.

A big reason I like AVNs is that they have time to develop the relationships between characters.
For the same reason I really like harem fantasy novels. Anyone else reading/listening to those?
Sadly Amazon is pretty strict with their censorship, so anything taboo gets nuked.

Here's a few I liked:

Lost Reavers by Mike Truk
Domestic Decay by Anya Merchant
Celestine Chronicles by Cebelius

So, what are the "bad hands" of the AI story world? What would you look out for, or get annoyed with how AI sets the story up?
 

Thanks

Monster Empire and Tamer: King of Dinosaurs by Michael Scott Earl
Villain for Hire by Jay Aury

There's stuff on Scribblehub that's alright too:
Heaven, Earth, Me
Rupegia
Immortal Only Accepts Female Disciples
Immoral Agency
DreadWolf
Rise of the Guild Master
Can also just search the tags there if you're looking for specific stuff.
Sad thing about Scribblehub stuff is you have to be prepared to read stuff that won't get closure.

Yeah, that's the risk with games, too. That's why I prefer paying the authors, so there's an incentive for them to finish it.
Honestly, the pace at which they publish in this space is kind of crazy. There's barely a few months between books.
I struggle to write a 10 page paper, so that's insane to me lol

Ah man I went on a binge with all the free Amazon novels with subscription.

Logan Jacobs has some very good novels.

Almost looked like this at one point.

I'll have to check him out. I'm still debating getting a Kindle. I don't like extended reading on regular screens for long periods of time. For now I still have a bunch of audiobooks to get through, but at the rate I'm going it won't be long until I'm out :D

The only one i have read is my harem consists entirely of female demon villains. The light novel was translated, the web manhua is better.

I only just recently started reading self published stuff, unfortunately the erotic side has fallen flat for me.

I've not found any that find a good balance between plot and porn. Most of the time there is so much fucking that it distracts from the plot.

Other times there will suddenly be a jarring sex scene out of nowhere like there was a quota that had to be filled.

Rupegia had wayyyyy too much IIRC. The First Great Game is pretty good, so is (laughably titled) Home for Horny Monsters.

I've been trying to get back into reading real books again lately. Let's share what we've all been reading outside the AVN space.

I finished the most recent book in the Red Rising series by Pierce Brown not long ago (Amazing in my opinion by the way; I definitely recommend for modern Sci-Fi fans). I just started Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. So far I'm liking it, but I'm not far in yet. Obviously, I'm a Scifi and Fantasy person, but I look forward to some good recommendations from any genre here.

A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. Audio books, currently going through the Expeditionary Force series by Craig Alanson. They're trashy and I love them. Assuming you've read the Stormlight books, Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky.
