A few of my employers like to include news relating to the goings on in the adult industry. I recently wrote a piece on Sasha Grey, the controversy surrounding the release of the movie ‘Anal Artists’, and Sasha’s belief that the adult movie company releasing this collection of scenes is trying to jump on the hype created when Sasha participated in the Read Across America program. It seems to be quite the hot topic at the moment, as it has spilled from the sometimes limited world of adult entertainment news, and flooded into mainstream media on sites like Huffington Post and TMZ.
Ruby Goodnight Writing Archives
I’m pretty chuffed that I’ve been profiled on the Eroticon 2012 web site as a delegate. I know I’ve been going on and on about this upcoming collection of adult bloggers and erotica writers, but it’s an amazing, first-of-its-kind event for those of us in the UK who write this type of material.
The lovely lady who is running it, Ruby (great kinky minds think alike when it comes to pen names), is doing an unreal job of pulling together all the bits and bobs that go along with an adult workshop / erotica conference. I do take my hat off to her, and hope I get to meet her as well as the other erotica writers around the UK who will be in attendance.
For the last month or so, I have been creating content for a new dating site in the UK, ReadersWives.UK.com. It’s from the same amazing web master that’s brought you sites like Essex Swingers, Horny Married Women, and UK Milfs.
Projects like this always get my mind going. I’m provided with a set of target keywords, a url, and a set length, and I just run with it. Sometimes I create work that’s pure copy write – selling the site to the reader. Other times, I like to take the point-of-view of a user and go into how they can use the site to satisfy their sexual desires. This set of work has come quite easily (save for a bought of flu that knocked me off my feet for a few days), since I’ve been involved in swinging and exhibitionist lifestyles before. Turning my own experiences into those of a character using a site or using the feedback that a webmaster receives from their members as a jumping point for a piece of writing almost writes itself.
Without sounding sales-y, I do like the idea of the site as a whole. It’s a dating site for swingers / married but looking folks, but it’s also got an area where members upload their amateur pics and vids. Passive exhibitionism!

Erotica and other adult bloggers have access to a lot of free swag these days. There are a number of sex toy web sites who have discovered that a great way to get their name out there is to give away free toys in exchange for reviews. While I have yet to stumble upon any UK based toy shops that are offering this, one of the great companies that I work with in the States is now in the game – EroticToyTown.com.
Here’s the blurb from their site.
EroticToyTown will provide Sex Toys to bloggers and reviewers free of charge. Please choose from the selection below and email us at email@example.com. Please make sure to provide us with the URL of your blog, forum or review site. We will return your mail promptly.
They’ve got some seriously sexy stuff up for grabs, including a iVibe Suction Cup Rabbit Vibe, An Aria Cock Pleaser Blowjob Masturbator, and Icicles Glass Massagers. Get all the details you’ll need at Erotic Toy Town’s Sex Toys for Blogger’s page.
I was sent a few lovely toys from Erotic Toy Town for Christmas while I was in the States, and will be posting my own reviews of their toys in a few weeks time. If I was in the States on a more regular basis, I know I would be getting involved in this. Incidentally, if you know any sites in the United Kingdom that offer this, please leave me some details in the comments below.
