Article Contributor Guidelines
Please read this page in its entirety. The link to the pitch form is at the bottom.
We’re so pleased you’re considering being a contributor to Wild & Sublime’s website to help expand the sex-friendly/sex-positive world!
We can offer you a platform to share your voice. While we cannot pay for your essays and posts, we will promote your piece on Wild & Sublime social media and eblasts so it casts a wide net.
We are also open to work that you have already published and to which you have the rights to republish or modify (simply share the link to it in our pitch form).
If your piece is accepted, we will ask for your bio of 50 words or less. How do you connect to the sex+/sex friendly world? We also want to link to your cool stuff! (If you’d like us to, of course!) Feel free to give us your best FB/IG/twitter or Fet handle, link to your website, and/or link to an upcoming workshop you’re holding. And if you want to write anonymously, that’s cool too!
And we, in turn, ask that you let people know you’ve been published on Wild & Sublime! This way we can continue to grow a community of sex celebration.
For now, we will publish only a few essays a month, so we might not be able to take all submissions or publish them immediately. We also reserve the right to edit your submission.
Wild & Sublime Mission
Wild & Sublime celebrates sex through body-centric infotainment. We create a welcoming, inclusive community, attracting people interested in sexuality in all its forms who want to discuss sexual matters with experts and each other.
What we’re looking for: 400-750 words on a particular topic (see below for topics). If the piece is longer than 750 words, consider pitching a 2-part article.
What we’re not looking for: event coverage or culture reviews, news, retellings of traumatic experiences, or straight-up rants.
Practical sexual help for people – techniques, communication tips, health info, ways to go deeper into understanding of one’s sexual being, ways to connect to one’s body somatically.
- Write on a question or topic that comes up repeatedly for you as you talk with people about sex or sexuality (with friends, clients, play partners, workshop participants, colleagues).
- Write on something that needs more exposure in the world of sex. Disability (visible/invisible), mental health, power, race, sobriety, ageism, trans topics, sex work, kink, gender issues.
- If you hold a regular workshop on a particular topic, use this as a forum to expand thoughtfully on your ideas or offer a good beginning exercise. This is not an advertisement for your hustle per se, more of a platform to go deeper and be more nuanced with the subject.
Personal sexual experience – liberating moments, new understandings – that is relatable to most people.
Write for someone who is a novice or new to the sex+ community. Define terms, build bridges to aid understanding, etc. New to kink? new to poly?, etc.
For Guests on Wild & Sublime: use this as a forum to expand or deepen whatever you talked about or will talk about on the show.
If you have an idea that fits with our mission but is not covered above, feel free to pitch it. Thanks so much!
