Alt.com (Friend Finder's BDSM Site)

We're looking for:

-- Informative, funny, sexy pieces on adult, bdsm, or gay sex/culture. 1000 - 3000 words.

-- reviews of sex related stuff, 900 - 1200 words. Porn, sex toys, sex how-to books, new, hot sex stuff etc.

-- Advice -- how to do something sex-related: how to shop for a quickie, how to hunt for bears (gay) or how to give better head, how to make "safe sex" feel natural or hard and raunchy or spontaneous or all of the above, what's the worst thing about golden showers? What's the best way to have May/December sex? etc.

--Features with a window on unique sex themes or that people could relate to -- when I was a porn actor, when I was fucking a married guy, etc.

-- We have also started a PG dating magazine and could also use spicy (no graphic sex) romance fiction, and articles about dating, relationships, couples, etc. with all the same qualifications as above but without the graphic sex. Humor is essential here.

Tips:

--First articles from a writer who is new to us will be on spec -- that is, we have to see the piece before we consider it. So sending your credits or a list of story ideas is not an efficient way to get through to us.

--Articles that can be accompanied by good pics or authors who have self-pics are desirable.

--I'm looking for cognoscenti -- scouts if you will -- and hope to count on my writers to come up with the latest, hottest, little-known sex related stuff.

--In you email heading put type of writing you’re submitting: i.e. kinky feature, gay male review, adult how-to, etc.

Percs:

We have no problem plugging our writers, their projects, their other web sites, their upcoming books, whatever, in an intro blurb. We prefer they don't do it in the column, however. Also, we don't import ads or banners and can't do live links.

Rights:

Once we see something we like, we'll send the contract for review, but here are the basics:

-- first time rights for the period of 90 days, after which you can sell the piece elsewhere (mentioning that it first appeared with us).

-- Unlimited use and term (in other words we can maintain it in our archives).

-- And we like to have many pics of our reviewers so people can tell at a glance when a new column is posted.

If things go well, this could evolve into a contract for regular column possibly at a higher pay scale. For example, our BDSM expert has her own monthly column; our adult product reviewer has her own bi-weekly column. So there's growth opportunity for someone with 1) a pithy, funny, sexy style, 2) appeal to our readers, and 3) a good work ethic, 4) low-maintenance relationship.
