– be politically astute
– have at least ten hours a week to devout to the site

We’re especially interested in non-white and/or non-cis applicants from outside the US.

And since we have your attention, please note that we’re also always looking for new contributors. Pitch us something! Got an almost-idea? We’ll help you turn it into a total-idea! We’re especially interested in book, television, and film reviews, coverage of local activist events, and commentary on current events. Contact us here or contact 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.

Mad Men to Magic Mike: Sex Work in Popular Culture from Tits and Sass

Hello, readers! If you’re the sort of person who’s interested in these things, Tits and Sass has a panel proposal up at the South by Southwest PanelPicker. We’d greatly appreciate your support. If you enjoy reading us chat about Mad Men and Magic Mike, along with our discussions of why it’s not cool for pop culture figures to joke about how sex workers were abused as children, you’ll want to see this panel happen. Please go vote for us and help spread the word.

We’re Trying Something

moneyduffelAs you may know, Tits and Sass is an all-volunteer operation. Our editors and writers do everything on the site as a labor of love for our community. But we’d like to be able to change that by paying the people who do the work you see here, so as a small experiment we’ve signed up at Gittip to see if any of our readers are interested in supporting us with small cash gifts on a regular basis. If you click on the button in the sidebar over there, you can donate to the site by signing up to give us a buck a week or a lapdance a month or whatever you feel like. Anything we receive will go directly towards supporting the site! If you’re interested in contributing in a different way, please contact us at info@titsandsass.com.
