When Coffee and Kink recently put out a call for sex positive and erotica writers to get together for a writing fundraiser, I was all over it! This sounded like a great project for us all to get our teeth into, and will help create a fantastic, and (knowing the writers who are taking part) fucking hot, collection of stories, essays and articles.
The Smutathon takes place on 1st July, where a group of writers will set pretty hefty goals (whether it be words of a story, or numbers of short stories or essays) and write for 12 hours to complete these. This will be a fantastic opportunity to begin an exciting new project for me exploring my personal journey with my sexuality- details which will be released nearer the time- and hopefully create some great new pieces for you to read and enjoy.
But why am I really doing this?
The answer is of course the charities. Coffee and Kink has chosen two wonderful charities to support- Backlash UK and Rape Crisis England and Wales. Backlash UK helps to provide pro-bono legal advice and campaigns for legal sexual freedom for consenting adults- something which I am incredibly passionate about. Rape Crisis provides support and advice for victims of rape and sexual assault, as well as information for friends, partners and family members. This charity has been a lifeline for many friends, and it is a cause close to my heart.
So, if you read my blog, and enjoy my posts, please consider donating to the Smutathon. If you’ve ever wanted to buy me a drink or a coffee, donate a couple of pounds to the cause. If you can’t donate, then share on social media, using the hashtag #Smutathon2017.
We are hoping to harness our collective positivity, creativity and filthy minds to work towards two fantastic causes.
