To blog or not to blog, that is the question for so many writers. Of course, the inverse of that for sex bloggers is "to pitch or not to pitch." When you've already got a sex blog, you wonder if you're "qualified" to pitch ideas to websites or charge for your writing. When you write for publications or publish books, you wonder if you really have anything to say in a blog. [ 1,068 more word ]

If you want to be known for your ability to educate people about sex, a sex blog is a damn good idea. No matter what, though, start some kind of blog.

In the world of creativity, many writers - of any and all genres - have to fight tooth and nail to squeeze money out of companies who don't "budget for content." It's frustrating and, most of the time, it devalues the very hard and very real work that writers do. When it comes to sex writing, this is one of those constant problems that can leave some writers demoralized and dejected. [ 1,229 more word ]

Too many companies want sex writers to work for free. You deserve to get paid to write, but sometimes it's okay to write for free too.

Back in 2015, when I decided that maybe writing about sex was a legitimate career choice (spoiler alert: it totally is), I did the only thing I could think of. I Googled "how to make money writing about sex." Big mistake. My results were filled with articles of "legitimate" writers who decided they'd try this whole erotica thing out for themselves.

The idea that you can publish a blog post and the money will roll in is laughable. If writing about sex is your career, you've got to work for it.

The question of whether you should select a pen name (or pseudonym) tends to be a topic left most often to erotic authors. Of course, they aren't the only ones who need to consider it. When I started my blog, I chose one because I wanted to write about my sexuality and experiences freely. The last thing I wanted was to have my innermost sexual thoughts found out by a potential employer or my… [ 1,037 more word ]

If you don't have a sex blog or an erotic writing career (yet), you may be wondering if you need a pen name. The decision is completely up to you.

It doesn't matter what kind of writing you do - personal blog posts, freelancing, or fiction - when the ideas start flowing, life is good. Until, of course, those ideas flow like water through your hands. I can't be the only writer who's ever thought she had a brilliant idea only to forget it the next day because I said, "I don't need to write this down." Yeah right. [ 779 more words ]

If you've never written for a website other than your own, it's easy to wonder how in the hell all those names show up on websites you like to read. Do they have a massive staff of writers, all working 40 hours a week, writing about sexy, kinky things? Uh, no. In reality, writers just like me and you (yes, … [ 1,358 more word ]

If you're going to write about sex, sexuality, gender, relationships, and/or the issues associated with any of it, I believe it's necessary to learn as much as you can. One way I love to educate myself is through reading. Every so often, I'll share a book I've read and why you might want to read it, too. Affiliate links are included in this post.

Can I lay out several cold, hard facts on writing - about sex or some other topic - for you? Sometimes you have to write even when you hate the assignment. We all feel like frauds sometimes. Most of us are envious of other sex writers, wishing we could do what they're doing. Over time, I'm sure I'll talk more about these truths, but the biggest of them all is this: [ 947 more words ]

Making money at writing is hard work. Writing about sex is hard work. Writing is hard work. And if you're not prepared to work for what you want, then get prepared for setbacks, failure, and plenty of aggravation.

You can't make money writing about sex...can you? That's we ask ourselves when we realize we want to write about sex (I know I did). Plenty of people believe that because so many people want free porn, cheap erotica, and easy thrills, no one's going to pay for sex writing - smutty or informational. Writing and other artistic endeavors are often treated like free labor, regardless of industry. [ 1,055 more word ]

Can you really make money writing about sex? Don't let companies who refuse to pay and free porn confuse you - yes, you really can make money.

“Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.” ~Virginia Woolf I know that Virginia Woolf isn't specifically talking to sex writers in this quote, but it fits. Her words outline my personal journey into the world of writing about sex for money. What started as a way to write and figure myself out, turned into something I did to connect with the sex blogging community. [ 531 more words ]

Writing about sex and getting paid to do might seem like a dream but it is possible. Dumb luck, hard work, and a dream help.
