I don't feel comfortable leaving my opinion in the comments of articles, so why read them?
I know everything there is to know about sex and I don't need SexIs.
I can't share the information with my social circle, there's no point in participating.

I really am interested in writing for it, I actually had an article set up to submit, but then Eden started trying to do these weekly themes and I thought I read that they were only looking for submissions on the weekly themes. It just got more complicated. :/

I agree. I have to wait to write about a topic I'm allowed to that I feel strongly about.

From what i've read already, it's primarily writers relating to issues on a first person basis. How an issue effects or affected them recently or in general. There are the more professional articles, the humor ones (bloggess) and some that discuss society in general.

Personally I'd like to see more society in general pieces, as long as they're related to sex or other themes of the magazine. don't become so diversified that sexis becomes another generic jack of all trades site. it's a jackoff of all trades site. i apologize for nothing!

Please DO NOT give points for comments. Points for liking, tweeting, tumblring etc etc is fine because it spreads the article, without detracting. points for comments will just encourage point farming and incessant comments like "nice article" "thanks" "great" to name a few. it's better to have a few thoughtful comments than dozens of meaningless ones.

for those who write 'nice article/review" and genuinely mean it, without trying for the points, please expand the comment, just a little. include one thing about the article that you liked, even if it's only a sentence. hearing one specific good thing about the article is better than a generic "good job."

I would love to write for SexIs.

I've sent a few e-mails asking how to get involved with it, and I've never heard a thing back.

Oh well... I do enjoy reading, and I check it daily.

I read from time to time. Some of the articles draw me in even though I really have no interest, I like that. Some of the others are not my thing so skip over them. I leave comments from time to time but rarely do I hear anything back.

I like seeing the articles posted on the forums, I miss fewer that way.

I would say that I am not the best at that type of writing but y'all might be able to twist my arm or maybe threaten with a cherry scented double dong or something.

I read them sometimes, and share articles with my partner as well. If my arm was twisted, I might write for SexIs. I need a good incentive because I really don't like writing unless I'm passionate about the issue.

I've been out of the loop for a while, I used to write for EdenCafe and I saw when things began to change, with the new layout thought I can't figure out if we can still submit articles or how.

I am specifically interested in the funny articles more than anything. Those are the ones that grab my eye.

This is the same as I.

I rarely read Sexis unless something jumps out at me, and I always leave comments for what I read.

I would love to write for Sexis, but when I made inquires into doing so, I was told that I would not be able to post the article on my blog. So I had to make the choice, write an article only for Sexis, or post it on my blog.

If this has changed, I'd be all over writing for sexis.

I don't read Sexis articles very frequently, but my general assumption is the authors are bloggers who are being published in an online magazine. In addition, I did not know there was more involvement between Sexis and the EF community beyond writing for Sexis or reading the articles.

Hi you guys,

I'm sorry for all the confusion surrounding SexIs the past few months. We've been working on some huge changes (for the better!) to the format of SexIs. But with change, there's always a bit of confusion.

We did post an open call for articles on the forum a while back. You can find the details here: SexIs - Open Call for Submissions and Guidelines.

Very, very soon, we'll be posting June's editorial calender and new directions on how to contribute to SexIs. But the main things to keep in mind are as follows:

• Submissions should be emailed to rayne(at)edenfantasys[dot]com as an attached file (.doc, .rtf or .txt only please). Please include your EdenFantasys screen name and the email you provided when you signed up for your account.
• Articles should be related to sex and society, gender and sexuality, sexual health, and sex in general.
• Articles will be copyedited, at least, but occasionally, if necessary, editors may request the writer edit for content and submit a revised copy.
• Articles can be controversial, but should not be an attack on any race, gender, sexuality or religion.
• One article a month will be accepted per contributor outside the monthly theme.
• Guidelines are subject to change.

@T&A1987 - We'll take your suggestions into consideration. Thanks!

@SMichelle - I'm sorry you've had so much trouble getting in touch with us. If you're still interested in writing, check out the guidelines above and submit something. We'd love to have it!

@Tim - I'm with Stormy!

@Woman - We prefer that you do not publish in full an article you've submitted to us on another site. This is to benefit your site and ours. Some page rankers penalize sites for publishing the same content as other sites. However, you can publish a summary, an excerpt and a link to the article on Sexis on your site if you'd like.

I hope this clears up any confusing. If not, please drop me a line at rayne (at) edenfantasys (dot) com.

Thanks!

I'm not familiar with Sexis, but I'm trying to figure it out slowly.
