comment How to avoid “Adult” rating when publishing erotica on KDP
When you submit your book you can choose up to three categories. As far as I know, Amazon doesn't ever have anyone physically read any books for evaluating content.

comment Erotic fiction: Kindle Direct Publishing guidelines on pornography
Unfortunately, I don't think anyone can define this. Amazon uses an automated process that helps them identify "adult" content, and the algorithm they use is proprietary, so we are left guessing. As long as you stay away from the three taboo topics, though, your content should be okay. Strong language or descriptive content have not caused any of my books to be flagged.

comment Do most e-book writers just self publish on Kindle to start with?
Another advantage of using services like Smashwords or Draft2Digital is that they basically allow you to submit a Word document which they then convert for you to create the various e-book formats you'll need. The fact that they also handle the distribution to all the different retailers also helps to simplify things for writers. When you create an account with either of them, they will have you provide the information they will need to send you payments, as well as the IRS forms you will need at the end of each year. This is true of KDP as well.
