#SoSS or #ShareOurShitSaturday comes from a call to action by the fabulous Girl on the Net, calling on all those who love the work of sex-positive creators (writers, bloggers, photographers, artists, educators) to share our work (“share our shit”) far and wide. This is particularly important in the wake of Facebook deleting accounts, Twitter shadow-banning, and Instagram shutting down anything with “BDSM” or “sex” in the name.
For a lot of us, this work is both our passion and the way we make our living. We show up day in, day out, often for peanuts in terms of financial reward, because we believe in the content we make and we know the content we put out into the world has a positive impact on our readers.
Of course, supporting us with your £££ is amazing if you can, but sharing our shit is a way that you can support us without it costing you a penny. So, in the spirit of #SoSS, here’s a quick roundup of some of my favourite content from across the blogosphere this week…
February 1st: Bow by The Other Livvy
I challenge you to look at this picture and not swoon. Bet you can’t.
Do You Want It Too? by Kate Sloan
A piece that hit me right in the feelings about the importance of knowing your lover is really into the things they’re doing with you, and not just doing it because they think you want it.
Sex & Pets by Emmeline Peaches
A fascinating and well-researched look about what your dog or cat (or parrot) really thinks when they see you and your other human companions fucking.
February 2nd: Floored by Exhibit A
Woof. The only thing hotter than this picture is the text that accompanies it. This one really tapped into some of my often-dormant Dommey feelings and reminded me why male submission and vulnerability is so fucking hot.
Relearning to Have Sex After a Hysterectomy by Isabelle Lauren
This guest post for Girl on the Net is vulnerable, fascinating and brilliant. Experiences like this are too rarely talked about, but it’s so important to discuss how major surgeries can impact sex for years to come. I particularly love the phrase “communication saved us.” Ain’t that usually the truth?
