Bookshare is not NLS where it seems that a significant number of new
fiction titles are slapped with the label "explicit language and
descriptions of sex and violence." remember most people do not want to
watch G and PG rated films anymore. Peple are expecting nudity, sex,
violence and some explicit language in their dramatic content. Yet,
some material falls below the level of adult content but is not
suitable for a wide general audience of sophisticated readers. If you
believe your book is one of these, then include the advisory in your
description of the book.

No, checking adult prevents people under the age of eighteen from even
seeing that it is on the site. Letting them know what to expect is
sufficient. If it is in the description it let's them know what to
expect and they can make their own decisions. Checking adult takes the
choice away from them.

Isn't the Adult check enough? If someone's that concerned about
it, wouldn't they be avoiding adult material in the first place?

I scanned a book that has Some strong language and some
descriptions of sex. Should I include this as part of the book
discription along with checking the checkbox for adult content?
