What we're

looking for

Payment

Sexy stories that inspire us, move us, and have a core in sex-positivity. We want strong characters that aren’t afraid to shake us up and make us think twice about our beliefs. We want superheroes that kick ass when faced with consent violators. Tantrica Goddesses healing their patients with sexual energy. The dorky boss that realizes he's been suppressing his desires to be a Dom, in control of a little slut. Give us a female Daddy. Trans characters in transition. Whether there is a supernatural element or not, we want barrier breakers.


While not all stories we’re seeking need to include trauma, main characters that use sex-positive means of healing or characters that overcome trauma in some way are a plus.  We want diverse characters with all body types, genders, and sexual tastes. Mixed genres are fine as long as there the main character meets the above guidelines. Proper consent is vital. 


Please, no rape, incest, or bestiality. No fanfic.


We will consider reprints on a case by case basis.
