The best sex blogs that you can write for

Bad Girls Bible

Bad Girls Bible

Bad Girls Bible is a well-known sex blog that features tips on how to improve your sex life and relationship. They mostly write longer articles with 3,000+ words covering subjects like oral sex tips, how to make your orgasm more intense, sex positions, etc.

At the moment, there’s no information on their website about whether they accept new writers or guest posts. However, people claim they’re open to new writers and you can always send them an email to inquire about any potential writing gigs. You can reach them through their Contact page.

 

Cara Sutra

Cara Sutra is another popular sex blog. They publish posts with sex and relationship advice, sex toy reviews, fetish items reviews, and erotic book reviews. They also have an erotica section, where guests can publish their erotic stories.

At the moment, Cara writes all of her blog posts herself, so she’s probably not looking for full-time writers to hire. Still, she will be happy to accept a guest post or two.

There isn’t any information regarding how to submit a story, what the guidelines are and how much she pays. You can find this out by contacting Cara via the contact form on the website.

 

Sexpert

Sexpert has a wide variety of content, from sex advice, adult entertainment posts, news related to sex, sex ed, and sex toy reviews. Their articles are medium in length, between 1,000 and 2,000 words. If you plan to ask them for a job as a regular writer, make sure to write about the topics they feature on their website.

They invite prospective writers to apply to write for them. However, they don’t give any details about what they’re looking for, how much they’ll pay for posts or any guidelines. You can contact them for more information.

 

Kinkly

When it comes to content, Kinkly has a similar assortment as Sexpert. They write about sex advice, sex Q&A, sex health, sex toy reviews, etc. Kinkly also has a comprehensive list of sex blogs which you can browse if you’d like to find even more writing gigs.

Similar to Sexpert, Kinkly invites you to write for them, but they state that they’re looking for fresh ideas, topics and perspectives about sex. For example, you can submit a personal story that should be intimate and surprising.

They also prefer writers who have at least a little bit of experience. Their articles are typically between 500 and 1,200 words long and they advise you to stick to that word count. You can always send them a pitch and try to get published on their website.

 

Slutty Girl Problems

Slutty Girl Problems is another great blog that you can write for. They publish articles about sex tips and sex toy reviews, as well as lifestyle and feminism articles.

They have a Write For Us section where they thoroughly explain how you can apply to write for them and what they’re looking for. You can apply to be a regular writer or submit articles on a non-regular basis, i.e. be a guest writer.

The guidelines for both positions are essentially the same. The articles have to be original, sex-positive, funny, edgy, and informative. They ask that you choose a topic that is a good fit for their website.

Keep in mind, though, they don’t allow posts with external links. If you’d like to promote your website on Slutty Girl Problems, you can visit their Advertising page and contact them to advertise on their website. They also don’t allow anything that is illegal or pornography (including graphic pictures and erotica).

They also provide a few pieces of advice to help you get published. For example, they advise you to write an article that has more than 750 words with a great title and introduction. They also encourage potential writers to link back to the posts from their website and include relevant keywords.

If you want to become a regular writer, you should understand that this will be a volunteer position in the beginning. However, if you’re good enough, you will have the opportunity to advance to paid positions.

To apply to be a regular writer on Slutty Girl Problems, you need to copy an application form into a document and fill it out.

At the end of the application, you will be given instructions for a sample article. The article should be between 500 and 1,000 words long and fit into one of the categories they list on the application form.

After that, you need to copy their application terms to a document. Then save both the application terms and form as PDF files.

When all this is done, you attach the two PDF files and a sample article as a .doc, .docx, or .pages file and send it to their e-mail apply@sluttygirlproblems.com.

If you want to apply for a guest post, you should know that Slutty Girl Problems does not pay for guest posts. In order to apply, just send the article you’d like to publish to submit@sluttygirlproblems.com. Make sure to stick to the guidelines we talked about before.

 

General tips for writing applications

When you enquire about the writing positions on blogs, take your time to write the email. Explain to them why they should hire you – because you’re an experienced sex blogger, because you’re a fresh, young writer interested in writing about sex, because you want to test out sex toys and review them and so on. Also, don’t forget to send them a few writing samples.

If you want to better your chances of being hired, send examples related to the website’s general theme or niche. For example, if you’re applying for a job on a sex tips blogs, send examples of articles you’ve written on that subject.

Another thing to be mindful of is the length of the article. Before you contact the blog, go over some of their articles and see what their general word count is. Then, stick with that word count when you’re sending a writing sample.

And if you’re only starting out and you don’t have any samples, make sure to write a few articles before you start applying. You can find inspiration on the websites that we’ve mentioned so far.

 

How much money can you earn as an adult content writer?

That depends on the blog, its traffic, the complexity and length of the article. Full-time blog writers are usually paid per piece. Typically, if you’re a new writer, you can charge anywhere between $20 and $200 per piece, depending on various factors. As you gain more experience and recognition, you can increase your rates, even up to $500 per piece.

If you want to make more money, consider freelance blogging. Freelance bloggers tend to charge per word, unlike full-time writers. You can easily find freelance adult blogging jobs on Freelancer, Upwork or Fiverr.

The rates here depend on the level of experience, the length of the article and the client. As an entry level freelance blogger, you should keep your per-word rates between $0.02 and $0.10 per word.

As you advance, you can start charging more, anywhere from $0.25 to $1.

If you don’t like any of the options listed above, you should consider starting a sex blog.

 

How to start a sex blog

The first thing you will need to do is get a hosting provider. Ideally, it will be a provider that specializes in adult content websites, such as ViceTemple, AdultHosting or Exmasters. If you decide to go with ViceTemple, they will also help you get a domain name, choose a theme for your website and set it up.

After this is done, you can focus on the content that you’re going to write. It’s important to come up with a content plan before starting a porn blog. You should decide if you want to target a specific porn community or the adult niche in general.

You can write sex stories, sex advice, reviews of sex toys, interviews with porn stars, porn reviews, even porn site reviews, etc.

 

What to write on an adult blog

If you want to find topics for your blog, you should check out your competition. Look at their posts and see what they write about. Of course, you’re not going to copy them, you’re just looking for inspiration.

For example, if you were to visit a sex toy review website ToyWithMe, you’d find posts like 11 Best Bullet Vibrators in 2018. So, now you have an idea – write a post that lists some of the best, for example, dildos.

If you went to a website called Love & Sex Answers, you’d see that they have a lot of articles where they offer sex tips. For example, you can see articles like Top 10 Best Places To Have Sex Around the House or How To Give A Blowjob: A Crash Course On Giving Men Great Head.

You get the idea. Depending on what kind of adult blog you choose to make, find out who your competitors are, and head over to their websites. Then, make a list of all the themes that cross your mind while you’re researching the websites. You’ll soon get plenty of content ideas.

How to get people to read your porn blog

Once you have an idea about what you’re going to write about, it’s time to think about how to get traffic. Here’s a list of the best methods that will bring traffic for your porn blog.

  1. Publish regularly – Try to publish at least a few articles weekly. Blogs that post more also get more traffic.
  1. Publish longer articlesGoogle, as well as other search engines, tend to prioritize longer articles. An article should have at least 800 words and it shouldn’t be shorter than 300 words. In fact, research by Backlinko shows that the average article on Google’s first page contains 1,890 words.

  1. Advertise on social media – This method will become much more efficient as you start gaining more and more followers. Advertise your new blog posts on social media like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr. Focus on Twitter and Tumblr, since they allow adult content.

  1. Guest blogging – Another great way to increase traffic to your website. You should look for the popular websites within your niche and offer to write a guest post for them. Don’t hesitate to write for free, at least in the beginning, because a great guest post can bring you lots of traffic to your website and increase your popularity.
  1. Keywords – One of the best ways to optimize your website for search engines and get more traffic is to include keywords in your articles. First, you’ll need to do some keyword research. You can use Google’s Keyword Planner to find keywords related to your topic. In addition, you can even see some general keyword trends. If you want to spy on your competition and see what keywords they’re targeting, there are a few other tools you can use, such as Ahrefs, SEMrush and Moz. However, bear in mind that these are all paid tools and that you can only use their trial versions for free.

  1. Link to other, popular blogs – Whenever you mention another blogger or website, include a link to it. After you link to a certain website, contact them to let them know you linked to them. This will get them to visit your website and maybe they’re even link back to you.
  1. Comment on other blogs – Once again, visit websites that are successful and start commenting on them regularly. This will get the blogger and his readers to notice you and visit your blog. And who knows, maybe you will even get an invitation for a guest blog.

 

How to make money with an adult blog

Since you’re writing your articles for free, you have to find other ways to make money.

One of those ways is by implementing ads to your website. Each time one of your readers clicks on an ad, you get paid a small amount. Additionally, you can also join an affiliate marketing program. You can read more about this in our article here.

With PPC marketing, you can expect to make between $0.01 and $1 per click in the beginning. Later on, as your blog starts getting more traffic, this number can go up.

When your blog becomes more popular, people who want to advertise their products may reach out directly to you. This basically means that you rent out your ad banner space to them.

How much you can earn depends on how much traffic you get. A general rule of thumb is that if you get 100 visitors per day, you can charge $10 for an ad banner. If you get 1,000 visitors per day, you can charge $100, and so on.

 

How to get paid to watch porn and write reviews

So you want to watch porn and get paid for it? Then working as a porn reviewer might be a great job for you. Sadly, it’s very hard to find a full-time job as a porn reviewer and make a living out of it. But if you’re an adult content writer or you have a blog, you can publish porn reviews on your own site.

However, before you start working on your own porn reviews, you should read porn reviews written by other people. Analyse them and see what factors they use to rate porn. Then, make your own list of criteria that you’ll be using to rate porn. TheBestPorn and Rabbit’s Reviews are great resources that you can use if you’re only starting out. You’ll find tons of reviews that you can study on these two websites.

 

Writing porn scripts

Unfortunately, the demand for porn script writers is not very high. Studios that shoot porn films usually have tight budgets and they rarely hire script writers. If they do, the writer is poorly paid – a couple hundred dollars at most.

However, if this is something you really want to do, you can contact porn studios and ask them if they need a script writer. When you contact them, make sure to send them some scripts samples.

If you really want to author written porn stories, it’s a far more lucrative idea to start writing erotica stories.

 

How to write erotica

There seems to be an increasing number of writers who are self-publishing their erotic stories and book. And for a good reason – the erotica market is growing at an incredible pace. All thanks to Kindle Direct Publishing.

Before we continue, we need to point out that if you want to be successful at writing erotica, you need to consider this is a regular job. You need to be prepared to write about subjects and fetishes that you don’t like. Of course, no one can force you to write on any subject. But if people want something and it sells really well, you should make use of it.

 

Tips for writing erotica stories

Before we start talking about how to publish your book on KDP, we want to give you some advice on writing erotica.

  1. It’s important to have a good story
    Yes, the main focus of every erotic story is sex, but it’s not just about sex. It’s crucial that your story has an interesting plot, captivating characters and compelling narrative.

  1. Female or male perspective
    It’s best to decide right away if you want to write from the perspective of a woman or a man. Most readers prefer reading from the woman’s perspective – this is, of course, not true when it comes to gay erotica. You can also try shifting from one perspective to another, but be careful not to overcomplicate it.

  1. Take things slowly
    Just like with sex, you don’t want to delve right into the act. Slowly build up to it with suggestive, intense or intimate conversation. You can also add some teasing moments. Set the scene. Describe the clothes, the characters talking, undressing each other, and build up to the climax. This is the best way to hook your readers in.

  1. Give your readers a happy ending
    Erotica readers typically prefer to see a happy ending. Try not to disappoint them and let the main characters end up together. Or if they don’t end up together, give them a good reason for it.

If you plan to write a series of stories, come up with a cliffhanger that will make the readers want to read the sequel. For example, if you’re writing a story, it could end with a phone call or a knock on the door. This will keep the reader wondering who is calling or knocking. Eventually, when you publish the next part, they will almost certainly buy it.

 

How to publish your erotica book

Kindle Direct Publishing has made publishing your own erotic books and stories incredibly easy.

First, you need to make a KDP account. Then, you will have to add author, payment and tax information to your account. Make sure to enter your real name, not your pen name. This is because Kindle issues payments and tax forms under the name you provide here. When it comes to payment methods, you can choose between a direct deposit, wire transfer or check.

Once you’ve created your account and your e-book is finished and edited, it’s time to publish it. You can do this by logging in to your KDP account, going to your bookshelf and clicking on Create a new title. After that you will have to do these three things:

  1. Type in the details of the e-book – the title, description, keywords, etc.
  2. Add the book and its cover.
  3. Set a price and choose your publishing rights.

The next thing you need to do is select a royalty plan. Kindle offers two options: a 35% or a 70% royalty rate. Amazon charges you $0.15 per MB of your file if you choose the 70% royalty rate. However, if you choose the 70% royalty plan you can’t put a very high price on your book. If you want to use a price between $2.99 and $9.99, then go with this plan.

If you think your work is worth more than $9.99, then we advise you to go with the 35% plan. But keep in mind that if you place a price that’s higher than $9.99, people will be less likely to buy it.

 

Promote yourself everywhere!

After your book is published and up for sale, it’s time to get people to buy it. The first thing you’ll need is to get some good reviews. Give your book away for free. Ask people to read it and give you some reviews on Amazon.

Then, promote the book on all of your social media accounts – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. Of course, when you gather a large number of fans, you’ll start selling your books far more easily.

 

Final things to keep in mind

Be prepared to spend a lot of time editing your books, making or choosing covers, getting them ready for publishing, and promoting them on social media.

Inevitably, you will come to a point where you’ll feel burned out. You won’t be able to come up with any ideas as to what to write. You may even lose your desire to write. When this happens, just remember that this is a job and try your best to come up some new ideas for your stories. Look for inspiration anywhere you can find it. Go through other erotic stories, movies, books and even porn films.

On average, you should expect to write and edit two short stories a week, maybe three.

Don’t expect to start making large sums of money right away. Be realistic. Don’t get your hopes too high. It’s easy to get discouraged in the beginning, but try to focus on the end goal. It takes some time, effort, and resolve for your career in writing erotica to really kick off.

That’s all. Now, you know how to get paid to write porn.
