StoriesOnline.net is an excellent site where you can read thousands of different stories in every genre possible, post your own, and interact with authors and readers.
Upon first visit, the site will prompt you to register. Before you decide, you can read sample chapters from dozens of top-rated stories but also preview the site. As a free member, you can read 16 stories per day from a collection of over 43,000, vote, use the forum, contact writers and follow them.
The stories are excellently written, at least the top rated ones, and include categories such as sci-fi, fantasy, horror, time travel, incest, romance, BDSM, mind control, and fan fiction. The content on Stories Online includes short stories and long stories which are practical books, as well as ongoing series, and everything uploaded to the site can be voted for by readers. However, to appear in the top list, it usually also has to fulfill specific criteria. The only way to quickly download stories (HTML, plain text, eBook reader, Kindle, EPUB) is to pay for a premium account. This also gives you 100 stories per day, an improved user interface, many customization options, a more advanced search, and other useful features.
The design of StoriesOnline.net is outdated, but it's very intuitive and clean. The front page features archive stories, author blogs, serial updates, new stories, etc. To the left are different top lists and a basic search. On top, you got sections including new stories, updates, an A-Z of authors and stories, as well as a category search and an excellent advanced search. Other than that there are blogs, story reviews, contests, and "universes" or collections/series. Best of all, this site has a lot of visitors and many active members making up a great community.
Anyone into sex stories and erotica, whether you're a reader or writer, should check out StoriesOnline.net for its vast archives, excellent features, and large, active community.
