Erotica

I’ve published a new eco-erotica story called “The Hunt”. You can find it here: https://eco-erotica.com/2016/08/29/the-hunt/.

I’m also super proud to announce that a new feminist, erotica magazine called “Math” is going to publish one of my stories in Issue 3 which will be released in September. (http://www.math-mag.com)

The piece was originally called “ReWilding” but has since be renamed to “Becoming Feral.” I submitted the story to them back in May after I learned about the magazine through an article in Bitch.

As soon as I hit send on my submission, I doubted that they would want the story. Math is very progressive, gender fluid, LGBTQ friendly… I worried that my story would feel too heteronormative to them.

I didn’t bother to follow up with them when I didn’t hear back from them about their decision.

A few weeks ago, I got an e-mail out of the blue, saying they wanted to publish my story, edited significantly for length.

I responded that the length of the story was part of the story itself — wild women are done with quickies! — but assured them that I’d be happy to work with them to create a wonderful story that was shorter.

When I received their edits, I was shocked to see that very little length had been cut from the story. They suggested wonderful grammatical and word choice edits, and cut a few sentences here and there, but the word document still clocked in at 13 pages! If you want to get a preview of the edited version, I’ve updated my erotica webpage to reflect the changes they made: https://eco-erotica.com/2016/05/05/a-rewilding/

I’m excited to receive my free copy of the magazine (the only remuneration I’ll receive) and to see how my story fits in with the other photos, articles, and art. Through a little Twitter research, I know that the issue will also have an interview with Erika Lust, a director and producer of female-friendly porn, whose work I enjoy from time to time.

And if you want your own copy, you can order it here! http://mathmagazineshop.bigcartel.com/product/math-magazine-issue-three-pre-order

It’s fun to see my Nom De Plume (Silky McGillicuddy) up on their website!

I love watching the energy and forward momentum that my eco-erotica stories seem to carry. They’ve opened new doors for me that I never would have expected.
