Are you allowed to say “cunt”? Why, no, certainly not. “Cunt” is a naughty, naughty word. One must never say “cunt.” *smirk*
I've heard a number of erotica writers express that they feel torn about using "cunt" in their work. For me, it's one of those "reclaimed" words, like "queer" or "dyke"--words I also use without remorse. Intentionality counts for a lot.
Thanks so much for the interview!
