It is with great pride and pleasure that we announce Kate Zen and Josephine have joined the Tits and Sass editorial team! Kate will be our news editor while Josephine will be focusing on television and film reviews. With more hands on deck, we can bring you more posts. Plus, they’re awesome, and just generally fun to have around.
Speaking of expanding our breadth, how about sending us a pitch or submission if you haven’t done so already? The more voices we feature on the site, the more relevant we are, and without relevancy we die inside.
Currently, we’re looking for:
- reviews of Don Jon, Afternoon Delight, Lovelace, The Frozen Ground, Concussion, Young and Beautiful, as well as commentary on the role of sex workers in TV shows like Game of Thrones, Justified, Masters of Sex, House of Cards, Mad Men, and especially Strip Club Queens: Atlanta.
- strippers from the south to weigh in on local conventions
- submissions for what will hopefully be our most monster group post of all time, “The Most Shocking Thing(s) A Client Ever Told Me.” You’re not limited to narrowing it down to only one!
- current event pieces for Kate: What do you think of New York’s new prostitution and trafficking courts? Equality Now’s campaign to keep sex work criminalized? Possible criminalization/adoption of the Swedish End Demand model in France? The exclusion of Kenyan gay sex workers from that country’s HIV treatment agenda?
- good old fashioned comedy. How about a satirical take on a first person report from Sweatpants Boner Man? Or a parody of a TER review?
- first person brothel experiences, in the United States and abroad.
- book reviews, always. Want to let us know what you thought of Melissa Ditmore’s Sex Work Matters anthology? Or, maybe you can tell us how you weigh in on the depiction of Victorian brothel workers in The Crimson Petal And The White ? How about your take on Monica Mayhem’s porn memoir or your analysis of Susan Dewey’s research in Neon Wasteland: On Love, Motherhood, and Sex Work in a Rust Belt Town or Cynthia M Blair’s I’ve Got To Make My Living: Black Women’s Sex Work In Turn of the Century Chicago?
- what you’re looking for. You can always email us questions for Dear Tits and Sass, or drop us a note with topic ideas. Tell us what you need to read about and we will do our best to oblige.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to publicly affirm our commitment to showcasing diverse viewpoints and striving for inclusivity. Sex workers are already left out of so much, including public discussions about our own lives, and we don’t want to replicate that exclusion here in any way. Please know we are going to work hard to have the site reflect the variety of people who come to the sex trade in terms of skin color, gender identities, national identities, and sexual identities. You can help by continuing to hold us accountable and encouraging every sex worker you know to contribute. Those who don’t feel like writing a full post on their own can submit images, conduct interviews, or participate in roundtables. If you’re willing to share it, we will figure out a way to include your perspective.
