Would Amazon Let Me Publish Semi-True Erotic Fiction?

I want to anonymously publish sometimes-true Kindle singles of hookup stories. Some will be true, some will be fiction. But I want to use a real name for each, a la Marie Calloway's Adrien Brody piece. Are there legal repercussions? Would Amazon take my single down?

I know fan fiction uses copyrighted characters so it's not allowed, but these wouldn't be characters. Also asking after seeing a piece on XOJane that talks about hooking up with a "celebrity" but the name is never given -- what if she had just inserted 'Brad Pitt' into her story (which is also part of a Kindle Single)? Are there any possible legal repercussions to keep in mind?
