The Hook-up: Hipsters Are Boring

Introducing Hipsters Are Boring I actually started to type that I met Kaitlyn Kochany when I moderated that panel on sex bloggers at Playground. But then I had a “hold on, shut your mouth” moment and remembered that this fantastic writer behind Hipsters Are Boring and a frequent contributor to xoxoamore wrote about the Toronto Erotica Writers and Readers Meetup. It was delightful meeting her then and getting reacquainted when we did that panel. And since then, I’ve had more time to peruse her writing on both sites and it is most enjoyable.  How did you get into blogging?Ten years …

The Hook-up: Adventures in Harlotry

Introducing Adventures in Harlotry How could I not be intrigued with a title like that?  What hooked me on this blog is the emotional depth and level of detail provided. Not just the sexy parts, but the relationship aspects as well.  What lead you to blogging?I’m a writer by nature and a journalist by training. When I decided to start dating again last year after almost ten years of celibacy, I found myself seeking out sexual adventures instead of traditional “dating” I realized I was going through something emotionally and I decided to start the blog to record what was …

The Hook-up: xoxoamore

Introducing xoxoamore.  And more specifically, we’re chatting with the site’s managing blogger, Erika Szabo. She and a couple of xoxoamore’s bloggers (who we’ll be talking to in the future), participated in the sex blogging panel at Playground. I was instantly intrigued that by the idea of a sex blog put out by a mainstream sexuality store…and whether it would be any different than the indie sex blogs. And it is, but in great ways. xoxoamore is a fantastic site of articles, advice and a wonderful video series.   How did you get into blogging? Hmm… Oddly enough, my job as …

The Hook-up: theblackleatherbelt

While it may not seem it, I haven’t really used Twitter for all that long. I probably use it too much now, but that’s not the point. Introducing theblackleatherbelt. If I weren’t abusing Twitter so much these days, I’d have never come across Lily Lloyd‘s theblackleatherbelt and her fantastic #SexReader Best of 2012. This list gave me so much good reading and many great connections of bloggers to feature right here! So it seems only natural to chat with her here.  How did you get into blogging and start theblackleatherbelt?I was one of those girls who had the diary with …

The Hook-Up: Stories of a Black Call Girl

Introducing Stories of a Black Call Girl I met Shelly Ann Black, through a Skye Blue, at the Playground Conference last fall. She spoke on one of the panels I couldn’t make it to, and I was sorry to miss it. When I found out she also is an active blogger, I was intrigued. Upon reading her work, I hooked.  Not only does Shelly Ann write about her sex work, she also writes about her Bipolar II. As am also Bipolar II, it is nice to find a blog that combines two of my interests.  Why did you start your …

The Hook-up: La Dame en Rose

Welcome to the first in my new series of Sex Blogger profiles—The Hook-up. People write about sex in many different ways, and I hope to bring many of them to your attention—and potential—adoration.  Introducing La Dame en Rose.  I was drawn to this blog by both the stunning visuals and the charged writing. Because browsers can now instantly translate pages (I’m Canadian, but sadly, I did not keep up with French studies), I am fortunate enough to be able to read these works. And I am glad for it!  Why did you start your blog? I started my blog after …
