Big News at BOYSLUT. We’re Now Accepting Submissions!
BOYSLUT ISSUE 40: It’s been one year since BOYSLUT was first published. Some exciting changes are ahead.
BOYSLUT is a year old, and I, for one, couldn’t be happier.
Looking back on it, the first few issues were rough. It took me a while to find my voice but I can safely say I’ve now found it. BOYSLUT is shameless. It’s horny on main. And hopefully, it doesn’t just give you masturbation fodder, it also gives you a template or at the very least, inspiration, to live your sexual life unapologetically. After all, that’s what it means to be a boyslut.
Looking at year two, there are going to be some changes with this publication. Yes, I’m calling it a publication instead of a newsletter because that is going to be the big shift. For one, I’m accepting real first-person erotic essays. This is a call for submissions! I will be your editor and work on them with you! I’ve been told my editing style is “tough but fair!” So you may actually learn something from me!
I will only be accepting pieces on spec (i.e., you need to send me the finalized piece, not a pitch). This is because it’s not about what you did, it’s about how you write about what you did. Even the most traditional or vanilla sexual experience can be written in a gripping manner. On the other hand, a wild sexual night of debauchery can be written in a shockingly boring way.
I’m accepting pitches from all sexualities and genders. Despite the name, I view boyslut as being a genderless term. Sexual diversity has been missing from this future publication. While I have a number of wild sexual adventures, I do the things that I do. I have threesomes. I love me a daisy chain. I’m an orgy aficionado. But there are things I don’t do and never could do no matter how hard I try. That’s where you come in.
Your essays can be anonymous. That’s fine by me.
I’m only accepting non-fiction! I want real sexual experiences that have happened to you. Please do not write about anyone without their consent. Change names when necessary. You may have noticed but the only times I use someone’s real name is after I’ve asked them, and they want me to use their real name to promote their social media/OnlyFans. If you use someone’s real name, I will need an email/text/written confirmation that they consented.
It should be more than about great sex. I have a TON of great sex I don’t write about because there isn’t a story there. I want you to have grown from your sexual experience. I want you to have learned something about yourself. If not that, I want your sexual experience to reveal something about culture or society at large.
The only exception is if you did something fucking insane. If you got sounded by a stranger, I want to hear about it. No lessons needed. Got double-fisted in The Rambles? That’s just really damn hot and I’m here for it. But otherwise, let’s look for some deeper meaning.
Length: I don’t really care. If you can do it in 600 words, more power to you. But I’d guess most essays will fall in the 1,000-2,500 range. Please nothing over 3,000 words. I have a life.
For inspiration outside of BOYSLUT, I recommend you read the anthology KINK. While those essays are fiction, that is the style of writing/content that I’m looking for.
Tone: BOYSLUT is graphic while still being tasteful. It is erotica, not smut. Please take a look and see how much time I actually dedicate to writing about the sex itself. (Not as much as you may think!) It’s about that foreplay, baby. Setting the scene. Getting us all hot and bothered. Tease me before ya stick it in, Daddy.
Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will reply to all submissions (not just the ones I accept). If you don’t hear back within a week, please follow up.
Reminder: If I reject your piece, that doesn’t mean you’re not a great writer. It doesn’t mean your story wasn’t hot. What it probably means is that I didn’t connect with it the way I hoped (or I may have a story in the pipeline that’s too similar). You can also always submit something else.
Obvi, I will pay you because I’m not a fucking piece of shit. I’ll pay $150 an article. Is it a lot? No, but it’s somehow more than many mainstream publications. Oh, and I will pay the moment I accept your finalized piece via Paypal. (Let’s go ahead and call it Net-7). So you get your money within a week at the latest. As a freelance writer, I know how infuriating it is to not get paid timely (or at all). I won’t do your dirty like that.
I also hope to be able to pay more depending on the number of paid subscriptions we get, which leads us to point number two. BOYSLUT will now have a premium subscription for $5.00 a month. (That is the minimum monthly rate Substack allows! I was going to do less.)
This will allow me to turn down other work and focus on BOYSLUT. Right now, I’m really struggling to do both, which is why you haven’t gotten an issue in a month. I need to get paid! I love money! I love paying rent! (Well, I hate paying rent, but I like when I have enough money to pay rent.) I much rather document my sexual fantasy than pick up work writing SEO pieces under a pseudonym. I’ll still have some free articles, so you can keep up with my antics, but there will be fewer.
What I can promise you with a BOYSLUT subscription.
Two erotic essays a month! Right now, I’m thinking the first by me and the second by another writer. This is liable to change, and if I can only do a single essay one month, please don’t hate me! I’ll try to make up for it some other way. Maybe I’ll send y’all nudes. Who knows? Hopefully, in a few months, this blows the fuck up and I can give you one essay a week. Let’s dream big here!
My fellow boysluts, I am really, really excited about this. I’ve always wanted to start my own publication, and now I am. I’m writing content that, frankly, I’m not seeing anywhere else, and that makes me really fucking happy.
I’d love your support as I embark on this next slutty chapter of my life.
