While the listing is by theme, they are open to interviews with activists and/or feminists, book reviews, and papers outside the issue's main focus (but on the publication's main theme) for each issue.

The magazine will focus on erotic fiction, art and other pieces (articles, essays, opinion) exploring established erotic realms as well as those which are uncharted, or have fallen into the cracks. Articles, fiction, reviews, art, photography, essays, opinion, and other enticements (e.g. sex blog of the month, theme issues, themed competitions.), all of which are to be composed with the zeal of a savvy and fresh succubus or satyr. Passion for erotica, art, and creativity is a must.
Details on submissions can be found here.
The editor says, "It will definitely be a paying gig. We'd like to be the place who sets the bar once again, as many online publications (not limited to erotic publications) request submissions and offer no payment, and writing/creating isn't really an easy gig."
These are the preliminary rates, in US dollars:
Full Length Fiction (1000-6000 words): $20.00
Flash Fiction/Quickie (500-1000): $10.00
Essay/Opinion/Confessional (1000-1500 words): $10.00
Reviews (500 words): $10.00
Photography/Art: To be negotiated with the artist/photographer.

Along with a Halloween theme, the entries must be either Straight or Lesbian erotic stories, at least 1000 words long as well as grammatically and structurally correct. This is the third Halloween contest for the site and remains its most popular yearly outing, though the site has offered other popular contests such as this summer's Pirate-theme one.
"There's something about the magic of Halloween," explains the Lusty Librarian, the site's moderator, who will be acting as judge this year. "It brings out the creativity in a huge number of our writers. It makes for great stories and for a great contest. It'll be a difficult decision for me to make but someone has to do it!"
The results of the contest will be announced October 30th, so that all of the Lusty readers can celebrate the holiday by reading the winning stories.
