Hi! Welcome to the Ecchi Fems community! I'm not the greatest at creating group names, but here's a basic explination of it. Ecchi is just basically a slang term for hentai (Japanese term for pornography/sexually explicit images etc.) Hentai can also just be called "H" which sounds like "ecchi" if you exaggerate the sound. It can be applied to any range of sexually suggestive stuff, usually lighter but can also be more heavy. And Fems is just short for females.
For now I'm going to be kind and believe you are all responsible people so I'll leave membership open and the community only lightly moderated. Rules and Info will be updated as needed. If this is abused it will change!


If you are a lover of erotic art by women or are a female artist who draws hentai, yaoi, or yuri etc. yourself, this is the place for you. Note that you don't have to be female or an artist to join however.
Basically this community is for sharing artwork and talking about issues related to women in art and being a female artist who draws erotica, be it fanart or original. Be proud to make and display erotic art! Gosh knows there are plenty of men who do, if they're not stigmatized why should we be?
That does mean this is an adult community, and you should be of appropriate legal age to join. I know its easy to get around that, and not everyone who draws erotic art is yet of age, so I at least ask you be of proper maturity level.


To join, you must:
1. Be 18 years or older (or at least close to that in maturity), or whatever the adult age is in your region
2. Have an appreciation for erotic art by women
3. Have an open mind
4. Be respectful to everyone here
5. Be willing to post or participate occasionally, not just lurk (post or respond)

If you can deal with that than click on the good old "To join, click here" bit above. Please note there is no restriction on the image content posted here. I encourage new members to visit past entries when they first join. It'd also be nice if you post a little about yourself if you're comfortable.

General Rules and Info:
1. You don't have to be an artist, or even a woman, to join. All you need is the interest ^_^.
2. This is a community about erotic artwork by women. So please refrain from posting art done by men unless you have something particular to say about a woman depicted in it.
3. The art posted doesn't have to be really sexual, but a nude in there somewhere is nice ^_^. Likewise the artwork can depict extremely sexual content, I'm not placing any restrictions here.
4. Basically it is pretty laid back and social here. Opinions are welcome as long as they're not jammed down anyone's throat. Post what's on your mind, I'm not going to be really harsh about on- or off-topic as long as you don't stray from something that's vaguely related to women's art.
5. If you have a related community or website feel free to post and talk a little about it, but don't do so more than once since this isn't a billboard.
6. You must be a Livejournal member to participate, sorry. If you aren't you can either sign up for $5 or ask someone nicely for a registration code.

Image Posting Rules:
To post an image here you must meet the requirements.
1. If it is a large image, or more than two smaller ones, please use a LJ cut tag. This is to avoid long page loading times and excess drain on the person's bandwidth (heck you can use a cut even with one small image if you like.) Text links to images are also appreciated, you don't have to use a cut tag for those unless the list is really long.
2. For direct-linking, the image must be an artwork made by you (or you must have the artist's permission.) Or for published images you must have scanned them yourself. Don't go posting a whole doujin or manga or something, but just show the best bits to give an example of that artist. Be sure to note their name and the title too.
3. The image must be on your own webspace (or you must have permission to direct-link it) if you're direct-linking.

#1 is an absolute requirement. If you can't fulfill #2 or #3 then you should simply link to the webpage you saw the image at.

Basic FAQ Type Stuff:
1. How to do a Livejournal cut:
<lj-cut text="your text here"> which looks like ( your text here ) with the text linked and everything else below it cut unless you click the comments link.
If you only want to cut part and have more below then add </lj-cut> after the portion you want cut.
2. How to direct link to an image:
<img src="http://www.webpagename.com/imagename.filetype">
3. How to text link to an image or website:
<a href="http://www.webpagename.com"> Your text here </a>
For other Livejournal-related questions visit their FAQ. If its not there then ask.
