Fanfic sauciness scale

Two years ago, Equestria Daily linked to a bunch of shipfic collections (#1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6; no, I've not actually read any of these), and they all contain a rather useful scale for rating content in terms of sauciness:

  • Fluffy — nothing serious, mostly cute
  • Fuzzy — a real d'awww scene for the heart
  • Snuggly — hugs, pecks on the cheek etc.
  • Tender — kisses, lying down together
  • Romantic — kisses with tongue, massages
  • Cheeky — moaning, overtly massaging wings, hoofs etc.
  • Saucy — very, VERY suggestive
  • Whoa! — describing actual sex

It really sounds quite useful — not just for fanfic but also for other kinds of art, although obviously it's focussed more on shipping than on solo depictions.
