Um, no, and no. Slashfic is not primarily a pornographical genre but a
romantic one that ranges in its sexual explicitness from G to NC-17, where
even NC-17 isn't necessarily worse than anything by Jean Auel. And femslash
(female slash) exists in most of the main fandoms and several small ones:
out of the top of my head I can mention Buffy the Vampire Slayer,
Smallville, Dark Angel, X-Men and Star Trek Voyager. I personally wrote a
femslash story for Press Gang (definitely not beyond PG rating).
Amazing that I take time to defend slash when I don't defend fanfic. Maybe
it's because at the very least the *description* of fanfiction was correct.
"Killing ten vampires is a lot harder than killing one."
"Does the word 'duh' mean anything to you?"
(Kristy Swanson made a better Buffy - in a poorer story.)
