Sexis Community Jourmalism Project

Mr Guy Mr Guy
Hello, everybody!

Sexis is ready to launch a new way of looking at sex writing. We’re calling it the Community Journalism Project. It isn’t enough to tell you about what’s going on in the world of sex—that’s only half the story.

The other half of the story is YOUR story. Because sex is about us—ALL of us.

And that’s just what we want to share—YOUR stories, your experiences, your ideas and points of view. We believe that by sharing our own stories, we learn not only about each other, but also ourselves—for every experience, there’s someone who’s had a similar experience and may relate to it in a way you’d never previously considered. And that’s just what we’re looking to do with the Community Journalism Project—tell YOUR stories, and tell them in ways that everyone can share in, learn from, and build the community within and without.

For guidelines regarding submissions, please read the article linked above.

Hey, gang!

Thanks for all the great submissions so far—we’ve gotten some really intriguing ideas. We want to see more, though! So keep ‘em coming! And—by the way—this isn’t a contest; there’s no winner—we’ll take as many as we can use.

So let’s hear from you!

Love,
Your Friendly Neighborhood Editor in Chief

Lethe,
Is there any way to view a detailed list of topics that have been submitted, so that we won't duplicate the topic of another person's article?

Also, can you be a bit more specific on the details you are looking for? I understand these are supposed to be experiential, but are they intended to teach and educate others interested in a specific area of sex? Be a step-by-step guide to trying something new? Provide new ideas to people exploring aspects of their sexuality? Just share what you've learned about something, and why it was important? Etc...

I guess I'm just looking for a little direction in what you guys are looking for specifically, because right now, it just seems a bit open-ended.

Thanks!

Hey there, LiftedUp!

We don’t want to limit the range of topics by posting a list of them—the topics themselves are less important than the larger point of the experience from that topic.

Say somebody submits an idea revolving around bondage—how they learned X, Y and Z, experienced P and Q, and afterward had an epiphany about the true meaning of Christmas. And say the NEXT person submits another idea relating to bondage—but with a completely different experience, completely different POV, incumbent issues, denouement, etc.

If both are ideas that we can work with, we’ll take both.

YOU are the essence of what we’re looking for. It’s been said that all the stories have been told—and that’s true. What changes is that it’s YOUR story, YOUR point of view, YOUR experiences, context, lessons learned (or blissfully avoided).

The resulting stories don’t necessarily have to teach a lesson or provide a how-to, though that’s not off the table, either. What we’re really trying to do here is treat tie all aspects of sex writing into one unruly bundle: the educational side, the personal side, etc. We learn from other people’s experiences, whether what we’re learning is a new skill, or just a new way of considering something—or simply finding a morsel of validation in the feelings or experiences we’ve had. You don’t have to be an expert to have good sex or discover what it is that provides yin to your amorous yang. You just have to be...and that’s what this is about—our experiences...being.

Hope that helps! Feel free to grill me all y’all like!
