I thought I would address a bit about "if anyone thinks there might be a place here for what I was looking for" as you have only been recently approved and are possibly still exploring E.
The nice thing about the approved side of the boards where move adult-themed roleplay takes place is that while adult situations and sex can come up there and there are certainly sex-driven stories, there is no obligation to write sex-driven stories. Many individuals like access to the approved RP areas because this will allow them to explore more adult themes that aren't sexual that some other sites might not like, like intense action/violent scenes that are often action-building for a roleplay or the use of alcohol or drugs for a character.
E's RP classification system for sexual content can also, in many ways, be seen as an interesting go-to for nonsexual but adult concepts as well. A roleplay that involves little to no sex but might involve a spy plot like the brutal kidnapping of a diplomat could hypothetically go in one of the Non-consensual boards. A roleplay that involves a soap opera-like romance but is not particularly sexual (the sex scenes might fade to black or simply might not happen
) could easily go in one of the Light boards.
The important thing is configuring your Ons and Offs and learning how to create request threads comprehensively detailing what you are seeking to ensure that you can find RP partners interested in the same type of writing as you! While many associate O/Os with listing sexual preferences for a roleplay, many people also like to discuss at length their posting style, post length, favored genres, and even include lists of often-used or well-beloved characters so others can get a strong idea of what their nonsexual "Ons" are for plot!
At any rate, congratulations on your approval, Delibee, and I hope that you are able to find what you are looking for.
Edit: Whoa, typed more than I thought I was going to. >_>;
