Top 100 Sex Blogs of 2015

      16 Comments on Top 100 Sex Blogs of 2015

There is much fuss about the term “sex blogger” and it seems people are generally either (a) desperate to be recognized as one, or (b) repulsed at the idea of being considered one.

(Yes, yes, all of life is a spectrum and it’s not that simple and maybe you have one butt cheek firmly positioned in seat A while your entire torso is haphazardly positioned over seat B… Yadda, yadda, yadda.)

Regardless of all of that:

There was once a reasonably long-standing member of the blogging community (Rori) who felt that people who write about sex (in any way – be it sexuality and sexual identity, sexual health and education, erotica, etc) should have some sort of way to get to know one another, and be recognized for their efforts. With that in mind, she composed a yearly list of Top 100 Sex Blogs, using readers’ nominations and her own set of criteria, and made that list available to readers. The list is not without controversy, but the spirit behind the list is one of promoting community.

This year, the list did not come to fruition. Rori has, essentially, retired.

In her absence, another blogger (Molly) has taken up the challenge of creating a (belated) Top 100 list for 2015, in the spirit in which it was intended.

If you feel so inclined, you may nominate your favorite sex bloggers (I know, I know… I don’t love the term either) here.

And if you’re not sure about the “sex blogger” label (I sooooo dislike labels!), you might want to read this. It’s a broad perspective and, in my opinion, an accurate one.

Consider this a public service announcement.

Do with it what you will.

    Greetings Feve,
    Thank you for the news around the “Top 100 Sex Blogs”.
    It is hard enough (No Innuendo or pun intended) keeping up with about 5 to 6 let alone 100….

      Right?!

      I follow very few bloggers, and my topics of interest vary so much I can’t imagine keeping up with so many. But the lists are a nice resource, and if nothing else, I usually spend some time perusing a few of the nominee’s blogs. It’s a one-stop-shop for exploring community. πŸ™‚

    I can’t imagine what else we would call them that isn’t some kind of overly-long description.

    Although some years ago when I was on the list, I noted with some amusement that I was on a sex blog for (essentially) writing about *not* having sex πŸ™‚

      It’s cultural, for sure.

      I don’t have a negative reaction to the idea of being considered a sex blogger; it’s just a difference between self-perception and how others view me. (Which is nothing new, of course. I’ve never been fond of labels.)

      It helped to read Rori’s explanation of the term (linked in the post) because her definition is broad, and I *definitely* fit under that umbrella. And really, so do you, what with your retro VD campaign posts and flappergasted pontifications. πŸ™‚

            Heh. I think the term you are looking for is “plausible deniability” – and I don’t believe you. πŸ˜›

            I always enjoy your posts, especially those with a historical bent. So mych of The Past is ‘rewritten’ into sanitized snippets, is it any wonder each generation thinks they’re the first to think of everything? Sometimes I just want to scream, “Free Love did NOT start in the 1960s, people!”

            Speaking of: I read a book recently that you might appreciate. The Paris Wife by Paula McLain – it’s historical fiction that stays true to fact, written like a memoir from the point of view of Hemingway’s first wife, Hadley. I found it fascinating.

            I’m a big Hemingway freak, and it DOES sound fascinating — I will check it out and let you know what I think !!

            You’re right about how the past is usually sanitized — that frustrates me at times when I’m trying to understand an idea or a cultural aspect.

            πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Don’t believe me, huh? Shame on ya, Feve. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
