Ready for another contest?

Now that the holidays are over with, and you guys are trying to find things to fill up your free time, we thought we should have another SexIs Social Writing Contest! Are you guys ready? If you're over 18, and you like to write, get your thinking caps on and put your best opinions forward. We want to hear from you.

The Rules
You must be 18 or older and have an EdenFantasys account to submit an article and enter the contest. No purchase is necessary. Registration is free and you can sign up with an existing Facebook, Google, Yahoo or AOL account. You do not have to use your real name to create an account or submit content.

All entries should be entered into the SexIs Social submission wizard as you would a normal SexIs submission.

All submissions must be in compliance with the Terms of Service and Posting Guidelines. Any submissions that are not will be disqualified.

Each contributor may submit up to three articles to the writing contest. Contributors must email me (Rayne) at rayne@edenfantasys.com with their EdenFantasys username and the title(s) of their contest submission(s) to be considered.

Articles should be a minimum of 500 words long. SexIs Subjective, SexFeed, and Define This submissions are not elgible.

The content of the submission should be sex-related and nonfiction. It can discuss society's point of view on sex, or reflect lessons you've learned from personal experience and research. Some topics to focus on can be (but are not limited to) sex in general, gender and sexuality, sexual health, sex and society, relationships, reproductive rights. See the categories listed in the menu at the top of the SexIs homepage for more, or check out this thread for this month's topic suggestions. Please note: We do not accept erotica of any kind.

The deadline for these submissions is February 4th, 2013 at 5pm ET. The articles will be edited for minor errors and published in the order they're received. Please be sure to mention that this is a contest entry in the notes, and respond to editors as quickly as possible.

The first, second and third prizes will be chosen by EdenFantasys employees based on quality, pageviews and social media sharing. The Community Choice Award will be put to a vote in the SexIs section of the forum. The poll for the Community Choice Award will be posted February 6th, and the winner will be the article that receives the most votes. Authors can only win one prize per contest.

Winners will be announced February 13th. Any prizes not claimed within 90 days will be forfeit.

Please feel free to email any questions you have about SexIs Social and the writing contest to me, Rayne, at rayne@edenfantasys.com .

The Prizes

1st Place: $100 cash for each of the winner's next three published articles (subject to approval - articles must be in accordance with submission guidelines), possibility of a long term paid writing agreement.

2nd Place: $75 gift card.

3rd Place: $50 gift card.

Community Choice Award: An EdenFantasys Tote full of these his and hers products (dependent upon stock): One piece (winner's choice) of lingerie from Coquette, winner's choice of Fleshlight Blade or Fleshlight Sword, LELO Gigi in your favorite color, and Sliquid H2O! Plus? What gift basket would be complete without our awesome Eden Toy and Body Wipes? You'll be all set for a play session alone or with a partner within minutes of arrival!

Yes, they can. The reason I added the clause about letting editors know it's a contest entry is because last month, we ran into an issue where we had to rush the editing of an article to get it in under the deadline. Wanted to make sure that doesn't happen this time!

As soon as they're published, drop me a line with the titles, and I'll add them to the list!

There is a little bit of a backlog due to the holidays, and contests tend to cause a bit of a bottleneck. We'll catch up as soon as we can!

Is it necessary to lie to these heavenly moments?
Is it necessary?
Maybe all this will I write to age and be forgotten, erased?
But who will it prevent?
Memories.
Memories that will stop that.
Once you become familiar daughter beautiful light, when I get my big beautiful wings.
I will be flying at night,
I'll play with the stars,
Tease the sun.
I can feel them!
I feel that they are slowly dying in me, but no!
We must not allow it!
Light, I seek.
I need you!
I can not do without you!
Maybe you can not understand,
while you're reading this,
but trust me so much emotion in me wants out,
wants to revive,
so many words.
I just want to touch the light with your bare hands,
I feel that on the cheeks,
we take heart.
I only want the light without end!
