Welcome to #Friday5 a quick round up of articles and news about sex blogging and writing that have caught our eye this week.
Ms Naughty gives some advice to aspiring male porn performers. An interesting read for the rest of us too, is any industry as glamorous as we think? I can also recommend scrolling through past posts for the one celebrating rock gods in spandex and tight trousers.
Chuck Wendig at Terrible Minds tries to get his head around Amazon’s Kindle Worlds. Wendig ponders the issues of commercial fan-fiction and the legitimisation of non-cannonical work, which is arguably a timely discussion for erotic fiction given that Fifty Shades of Grey started out as fan fiction and Total-E-Bound’s Clandestine Classics re-imagines literary classics with added erotica.
Burning Book Press have a all for male point of view erotic anthology. The anthology’s editors, Will Crimson and Raziel Moore, are asking “What turns a literate guy on?” in the call for literate erotica where the main focus is the male experience.
Go Deeper Press call’s for submissions page has three open calls. Closing soonest at the end of May is a call for micro-fiction or erotica of less than 300 words, so there’s time to get writing and submit before the end of the month.
