Smutathon 2017

‘Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.’
Helen Keller, The Open Door

You know how I like a challenge? This may be the greatest challenge yet…

Sex-blogger Coffee and Kink has come up with a brilliant writing challenge that is also an opportunity to raise money for charity!

I am so excited about this event, and also a little terrified at the prospect of the frenzied, pressured writing that will be necessary on the day. My blog posts usually take several days each – planning, writing, hesitating, and editing before finally publishing, but this challenge needs me to write and publish many, many posts in the 12 hour challenge window. Oh my!

Here is C+K’s description, taken from her blog with permission, of what the Smutathon will involve…

What: A group of intrepid sex writers – bloggers, erotica authors, sex educators and more – get together for 12 hours and write like mad things, each with their own personal challenge of words to complete, stories to write, chapters to finish.

When: Saturday 1 July 2017, midday – midnight.

Where: Our house! Exhibit A and I are hosting the in person meet up in London, UK. Online for anyone else who wants to participate but can’t get to London. There will be a group Skype chat throughout the day (and during the build-up) and we will all live-tweet at #Smutathon2017.

Why: To raise money for two amazing organisations, Backlash UK – which provides pro-bono legal advice and campaigns for legal sexual freedom for consenting adults – and Rape Crisis England and Wales.

How (to Get Involved): Donate! Share on social media (using hashtag #Smutathon2017.) If you’re a writer and want to participate, just email Coffee and Kink at coffeeandkink69 (at) gmail (dot) com (use ‘Smutathon’ in the subject line and she’ll prioritise getting to your email.) 

Please note there are limited spaces at the in person meet, and we have the right to refuse any guest to our home. Remote participation is unlimited, or you could host your own meet!


Oh my gosh, I can’t wait!!

Now I just need to decide what my personal writing challenge will be. What can I do in 12 hours? 20 flash fiction stories? 10 blog posts? 5000 words?!

Watch this space…

  1. Reblogged this on Katya Evangeline and commented:

    I love how erotica writers, adult performers and lovers of sex and pleasure have turned the word SMUT into something positive…something, sexy, racy, titillating, pervy, kinky…. the list of smutty goodness goes on!

    So for all my sexy, pervy friends here (and I KNOW you are here…yup. I see you!) head over to Smutathon 2017 where a whole group of erotica writers and bloggers have pledged to bang out loads of sexy smut for 12 hours to raise money for 2 great causes. It is going on as we speak. Follow the post below which links to the other fabulously smutty and charity minded bloggers. I understand Smutathon 2017 is also being live tweeted! Check out the post for the appropriate hashtags!

    So please check out the 2 charities and consider donating. A few bloggers, like TheOtherLivvy have promised to post sexy pictures for each $100 (British $) donated. It sounds like great fun for 2 great causes!
