What Gustavo told me about adult content was if the book belongs in the erotica 
section of a bookstore, (meaning if it contains REALLY explicit descriptions of 
sex), then label it adult content. Or if there are graphic scenes of torture 
and/or rape, it should be adult content.  There are a few books that I've 
labeled adult, that didn't contain any of the above.  One was about true-life 
cannibalism, and another one (which actually didn't have much sex in it) was 
Hustling: The Gentlemanly Art of Homosexual Prostitution.
  It sounds like your book shouldn't be adult content, just because there are a 
few f-words.
  My 2 cents, Carrie

  Hi listers. I'm about to submit a book for validation, but I have a 
delemma. Although the book contains no sexual explicitness, There are 
some small hints of occasional profanity, including the use of f*ck 
once or twice in the book. Should I still check the box for adult 
content? Thanks.
