Happy New Year! Write For Tits and Sass!

ezgif-saveHi, Beloved Readers,

Thanks so much for a fantastic 2013. We couldn’t have done it without our amazing contributors, all of whom volunteer their efforts to contribute to this community. We’re always open to new writers and pitches. Take a look at our Contribute page for some ideas.

We’re always looking to bring in new voices. And that means we’re especially interested in writers:

  • from outside of the United States
  • from diverse economic backgrounds
  • of color
  • who are sex-working men
  • who are transgender
  • from the Midwestern and Southern United States

Our only requirement is that you are or have been a sex worker.

We recognize that the stigma of sex work makes publishing your writing in a permanent, public forum intimidating! So, we will work hard to product your identity and will certainly allow you to use a pseudonym if that’s what you require.

We’re always looking for book, television, and film reviews, coverage of local activist events, and commentary on current events. Please email info@titsandsass.com or holler at one of our editors on Twitter; Caty handles activist news and book reviews, Josephine is happy to talk about popular culture of all kinds, and Susan (fka Bubbles) wants to hear about policy and labor issues. P.S. We’re always considering future editors, in case you’ve got some extra time on your hands.

Have you ever wanted to be in an endless e-mail chain with Caty, Josephine, and Bubbles? Are you interested in the policy that affects our working and personal lives? Do you like to debate the differences between representations of sex workers on Game of Thrones and The Wire? We want you! Tits and Sass is seeking co-editors to help run the site.

Candidates will be:

1) deeply committed to sex workers’ rights
2) interested in representations of sex work in the media and popular culture
3) able to commit 10 hours of their week to the site
4) familiar with WordPress and Google Docs
5) preferably a full-service sex worker or porn/cam performer; must be a current sex worker
6) able to use either their real name or a pseudonym to represent their work
7) familiar with the site, with real fondness for it
8) from anywhere in the world—preferably from outside the U.S. to add international perspective to our currently all-American editing team

This is a volunteer position. Contact us here introducing yourself and explaining why you’re interested in working with Tits and Sass, along with links to your writing samples and online presence. We especially encourage candidates who are neither white nor cisgender to contact us.

We Want You!

Are you a current or former sex worker who loves Tits and Sass, but stumped on ways to contribute? We are always interested in anything pertaining to sex work in the news and/or in popular culture. If that’s too broad for you, we have a few suggestions. We are looking for pro/con pieces on the following topics. (Remember $pread magazine’s “Positions” column?) Tell us how you feel about:

Here are some broader themes we’re interested in exploring (as long as they are topical):

We also have an extensive list of movies, TV shows, documentaries and books that haven’t been reviewed. You can even write about a zine, a short story, an article, a podcast, a web series, a music video, or a study. Don’t have the time or inclination to write? Consider making a video blog (vlog), as we would love to start featuring vlogs on the site regularly. We also like our sex worker infographics if you have a trend you’ve been tracking. Work somewhere interesting? Tell us about convention season, what happens when Congress goes on vacation, or silly/antiquated local laws. And of course, there’s always Stripper Music Monday or letting your baller status animal companions do the talking. Remember, you can remain anonymous if you really want to blast your local hobbyist board or make confessions. Send your submissions and ideas to info at titsandsass dot com.
