‘Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.’

I’ve decided to jump on a brilliant bandwagon started by ErosBlog and continued by Girl on the Net and other brilliant bloggers under the hashtag #SoSS (Share Our Shit Saturday) and share some of the great writing that I have enjoyed this week.
Recently, many of the platforms that were previously open to sex workers and sex writers have changed their policies and are now trying to silence us instead. Until recently, I was shadowbanned on Twitter – essentially meaning that unless you already followed me, you couldn’t find me. I wouldn’t appear in searches, my replies to you would go unseen, and I was effectively mute. And I wasn’t the only one.
But this has prompted a great response from the blogging community – we are sharing all the amazing posts that we have read this week to make sure that they are still heard! Now I can’t guarantee that I will post something every Saturday (particularly as this first post is on a Sunday…) but I will try and share my favourites as often as I can!
So here goes…
- Warm Down by Exhibit A
Obviously, I’m biased but my husband really is a beautiful writer and I love how he has captured the hotness of this moment!
- Crying After Sex by Girl on the Net
I have always been a huge fan of GOTN – she fearlessly writes about subjects that need to be heard, and this is a beautiful example.
- What I Really Hear When You Misgender Me by Bex Talks Sex
This is a really wonderful post about a difficult subject. And is why I love sex writing – it’s so important to hear about experiences that are different from my own and is why silencing them is so awful.
- Anatomy of a negative sex toy review by Hey Epiphora
Hearing about terrible toys really is just as important as hearing about the good ones, and Epiphora proves once again why she’s the best!
- A Beautifully Wicked Memory by Tabitha Rayne
Tabitha writes such brilliantly hot stories, and this is no exception. Plus it’s illustrated with one of Tabitha’s drawings, which I almost love more than the story!
And that’s it for this week! There were so many other great posts that I could have included so do check out the hashtag #SoSS to see what else we all recommend!
