For The Girls Call For Submissions

WHO WE ARE

For the Girls is a membership-based adult site and ezine for heterosexual women. As well as explicit pictorial and movie content, we also offer a full women’s magazine, focusing on sex, women’s health and humor.

TRUE CONFESSIONS

We are seeking submissions for our "True Confessions" column. This section aims to feature real-life stories of sexual adventures, preferably with a humorous twist. We want to hear true amusing anecdotes about first times, best times or only times, amazing erotic triumphs or fabulous sexual disasters. It can cover almost any topic, so long as it involves sex (see below for conditions). Submissions must be written in the first person. Pieces that read too much like erotic fiction will not be considered for this column

Articles should be 600 to 1000 words in length. The column should be written for a female heterosexual audience. The stories should inform as well as entertain, and be true to life. Ideally we want to hear from someone new each month, however if your work is fabulous we'll consider commissioning further articles.

WICKED WAYS

This is a new column in the format of an "erotic letters" section that will appear weekly. We are looking for short, erotic pieces describing a sexual fantasy or encounter. The column seeks to share female fantasies and experiences in a positive way that also turns us – and you - on. The main aim is arousal, however this does not mean we want clich├ęd porn. If it's a "real experience" then it needs to be believable. If it’s an expression of fantasy, the writer needs to state as much.

Pieces should be 500-1000 words maximum. They must be well written and feature a female perspective. Submissions must be written in the first person.

EROTIC FICTION

We are looking for high quality erotic fiction to feature at least once a month. Stories can cover any topic, however it must be erotic in nature, relatively explicit, sex positive and be written expressly for female readers.

We’re looking for stories that are more than just a sex scene. We want to see stories with interesting scenarios and fascinating characters; stories that explore the issues and emotions surrounding sex. Remember that dialogue and buildup can be just as erotic as the actual sex.

Stories should be a maximum of 2500 words in length.

NON FICTION FEATURE ARTICLES - PROPOSALS

For The Girls publishes articles on all aspects of sex, porn and women's health. We are currently looking to publish non-fiction feature articles by freelance contributors on a bi-monthly basis. We are not looking for opinion pieces or columns.

At this stage, proposals only will be accepted. Do not send entire articles as they will not be read.

Proposals should be no more than 300 words in length and describe the outline for the feature. You should also list some of your publishing credits, past writing history or qualifications, if any.

PAYMENT

US$35 per True Confessions piece
US$25 per Wicked Ways piece
US$30 per Erotic Fiction piece

Payment will be made electronically, so you must have an appropriate account with Paypal. If you cannot be paid this way, we cannot publish your work.
