Submit a Pitch

We want you to join the conversation.

Pitches we want:

  • First-person essays and articles on mental health, physical health, disability, sex toys, parenting, creativity, and interviews on the previous topics all in relation to sex work.
  • New topics that haven’t been posted about before and content that contains advice will be prioritized.
  • We will only publish pieces from the perspective of the person with the lived experience of the subject, for example: when writing about disability, a disabled person’s voice will be prioritised over the voice of a non-disabled person. We feel there aren’t enough platforms for marginalised voices, and we’re working hard to fix that.
  • We want everyone to feel comfortable and if your post contains gendered language, unless your piece is first person, we will ask you to change it to gender-neutral language – they/them/theirs.
  • Unique posts that haven’t been published before.

Pitches we don’t want:

  • Academic Papers, Poems or Fiction
  • Pitches promoting yourself or someone else, upcoming events, music, books, TV shows, people or films.
  • Recaps of TV shows, films or books.
  • Stories that have been published online elsewhere

We pay £25 per blog post and will require a proper invoice to be able to pay you. We can pay through Paypal or direct bank transfer (in the UK only).

Disclaimer: Not all pitches will be accepted. Pitches may be edited for clarity, grammar, or spelling. If larger edits are needed the post will be sent back for approval before posting.
