This post is part one in my series on sex-blogging. Make sure you are following my blog, you don’t want to miss the other parts. And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter so you don’t miss any announcements.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; the world needs more sex bloggers. We need more open minded people talking about sex so that we can normalize the discussion of sex. The discussion of something that’s in our basic nature. Sex is fun, it feels good and it’s exciting. I think the world needs more sex bloggers.
You’ve been thinking about starting a sex blog (I know you have!) but you aren’t sure if it’s right for you. Here’s some reasons why you should start a sex blog.
1. It’s Fun
It’s a lot of fun to sit down at my computer and write about the sexual adventures I’ve had in my life. It’s fun to replay memories of times that were the best. It’s fun to look back on the exciting sessions I’ve had with new toys. But the most fun I find I have is sharing my experiences and tips/tricks with the world.
2. It’s NOT Overly Saturated
I read an article a while back that talked about how sex blogging is too overly saturated and that no one can actually start a sex blog and be successful anymore, to that I call bullshit. The reason being, we are all unique individuals with unique views and experiences when it comes to sex. I like to read about the different things people get themselves into, or do, or use. Every single one of us has different feelings and thoughts about sex and those differences are what makes each sex blog so different. Sure there might be a million sex bloggers reviewing all the same toys, but some of us feel things differently. So while one sex blogger might not enjoy a specific toy, another might have it as their go-to.
3. There Are so Many Different Topics
Maybe you think that you will run out of ideas for your sex blog, but let me tell you why that thought is wrong. There are SO many things that you can write about. From toys and gear, to lingerie, to lubes and oils, to your past experiences, to your fantasies, to exploring different fetishes. The list goes on and on. There is no right or wrong topic when it comes to sex and there is always something new (or old) that can be written. Even if ten others have discussed the same topic, there’s no reason why you can’t add your own two-cents to that conversation.
There are also Sex Blog Meme’s that you can jump in on. Like Sex Bloggers For Mental Health, Masturbation Monday, Wicked Wednesday, and so many others. They provide a prompt (which you don’t always have to follow) but it can help you to create content if you’re feeling stuck. I find a lot of the prompts to be fascinating.
***CHALLENGE*** Write down 60 topics that you could write about. If you post every day that’s 2 months worth of posts. If you post less than that, that’s even longer!
4. You Don’t Have to Share Pictures of Yourself
You might think you’re too shy or too self-conscious to start a sex-blog because you think you’ll have to show yourself off. You don’t have to post a single picture of yourself if you don’t want to. That’s the glory about writing for yourself on your own blog. You can write about whatever you want and post whatever pictures you want. (As long as you abide by copyright, of course.) No one is going to force you to post photos of yourself and that’s not the only way you will get popular either.
5. We NEED You
Sex bloggers need more sex bloggers so that we can lift the stigma of talking about sex. It’s 2020 and while we have made some progress and sex has become less taboo, there are still a LOT of people that treat sex like it’s some sort of thing that needs to be hidden away. As if it’s only for the bedroom and we shouldn’t be discussing it with other’s because it’s far too private.
We need more like-minded people to help us break this taboo-ness of sex. Especially in the United States where women breast-feeding their infants in public is a constant topic of whether it should be allowed or not. We need more people who want to normalize sex. People who want to discuss their sex lives and their tips to help others. Having a sex blog can help those who might think something is wrong with them only for them to hop on your blog and read that they go through the same thing as you and maybe they aren’t as abnormal as they thought.
6. It Could Help You
Not only can I speak for myself, but I’ve read articles where people have said the same thing I have in my post from November. How Stating a Sex Blog Has Changed My Life.
Personally speaking, starting a sex blog has made me not only more confident but has given me the ability to become more adventurous in bed. There’s so many new things I want to try now from being a part of the sex-blogging world.
Starting a sex blog may just help you come out of your shell and discover parts of yourself you didn’t realize you had in you. It might help you become more confident in not only your appearance, but your sexual abilities, too. (I.E. I’ve had way more orgasms in one year of sex-blogging than any other time before. Because I’ve learned to relax more and N and I have been trying out new things.)
There’s so much support out there. I’ve met so many amazing people since I started sex-blogging that I never feel alone in this. I look at the list of Top 100 Sex Bloggers and I of course want to join them, but I have never thought of them as my competition. I admire those at the top.
You start to build friendships with other sex-bloggers. You learn new things to try from them. But most of all you can find a lot of support within the community. (Especially, if you participate in the sex-blog meme’s mentioned in number 3!)
Starting a sex blog really isn’t as scary as it might seem. You can use a pen name and no identifiable pictures or information if you don’t want people you know to find out. Sex blogging is so unique and there is much more that goes into it than just writing about the last time you had sex with your partner. It can be a great way for you to break free and do something fun. Even if you don’t make it your sole purpose in life.
