Epiphora

For five years now, sex toys have been my life. I have ogled, squeezed, and twiddled with so many that my mind has turned into mush a sex toy encyclopedia. On my blog, Hey Epiphora, I peddle relentlessly honest sex toy reviews — with a smattering of sex industry critique thrown in for good measure.

My opinions are trusted; I’ve been interviewed for XBIZ Premiere magazine and even quoted in Tristan Taormino’s book, The Secrets of Great G-Spot Orgasms and Female Ejaculation. I don’t believe that wishy-washy sex toy reviews benefit anyone. Like everyone, I have certain preferences and pet peeves (my hatred for pink and love of VixSkin are no secret), but you will never read a review of mine and question how I truly felt about the toy. You’ll also never see the terms “marital aid” or “battery-operated boyfriend” in my reviews, because euphemisms give me hives.

My reviewing of sex toys began in 2007. I got my start writing reviews for an online sex toy shop. In 2008, I launched my blog — and have been rabidly collecting and reviewing sex toys ever since. I answer a lot of emails from folks needing sex toy advice, and I also pelt people with snark on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and in my monthly newsletter.

I’m a feminist, pansexual, in a relationship with a dude, and greatly prefer cats to children. My jack-off sessions are long and my cups of coffee are doused with creamer. My primary sources of visual entertainment are porn, bad reality TV, and documentaries about depraved serial killers.

Greetings!

Hi y’all!

I’m Sinclair, and I’m excited to be part of this. I write for various places online, primarily about gender and sex. My specialties tend to be masculinity, strap-on hardware and software, power dynamics, BDSM, and erotic energy explorations.

Here’s my current bio, a bit more about me:

Sinclair Sexsmith has been writing online since 1996 about identity, queer culture, feminism, and self-awareness, and teaches workshops on BDSM, gender, and getting the sex life you want. They produce the award-winning website Sugarbutch Chronicles: The Sex, Gender, and Relationship Adventures of a Kinky Queer Butch Top at sugarbutch.net. Contributing to more than fifteen anthologies, including five Best Lesbian Erotica editions, Persistence: Still Butch and Femme, and Take Me There: Trans and Genderqueer Erotica, Mr. Sexsmith is also on the board of the upcoming 2013 BUTCH Voices conference, and serves the Body Electric School as a coordinator. They are the guest editor of Best Lesbian Erotica 2012 and editor of Say Please: Lesbian BDSM Erotica, both from Cleis Press. More information about their events, workshops, and projects at mrsexsmith.com.

It’s been fun to expand my interest in sexuality education past my middle-school peer-educator trainings and into queer, BDSM, leather, and gender theories. I love talking to people about this stuff, and I’m excited to be a part of Kali’s project!

Max Wren

I am Max, and I wear many hats. I’m an average IT guy with a penchant for the perverse. What brings me to the realm of sex education? Well,  my experience includes:  burlesque performer and tech, fetish clip model, IT security novice, amateur cam model, social justice activist, erotica author, open source evangelist, social media community builder,  healthcare and more! I love finding new ways that can help people learn to help themselves. I’m hoping to bring a DIY attitude to the kink community, and help to create a more collaborative environment for everyone.

 

Long Live the New Flesh!

Tess Danesi

I’m a former accounting nerd who decided to take my passion about sex and sexuality and reinvent myself. As a writer, I’ve been published in several erotica anthologies, as an educator, I’ve taught various workshops, and as a sexuality event planner, my vision was to create an interdisciplinary sexuality think tank and in April 2011 and March 2012, that vision brought Momentumcon.com to the DC area. I worked as the sexuality consultant for the now defunct, wholesalesextoysite.com. I’m now in the process of bringing my vision for an upscale sexy boutique with community, education, health and pleasure as its guiding principles.
