Ashley Cobb, “your favorite friend in filth”, is a sexpert, leader, and influencer known for her fun, down to earth and practical commentary. In our interview, Ashley talks about how long it took her to make her first dollar as a smutlancer; how she used her degree to carve out a lane for herself; the wildest thing she has experienced as a smutlancer and more. Enjoy!
Editor’s note: The Smutlancer community will be closing at the end of 2021. The site will remain live for future smutlancers to use as a resource. The final blog post will publish right at the first of January. This is the last Smutlancer Spotlight. We are eternally grateful to Chelsea for picking up this idea and running with it. She made it better than we ever imagined it could be.
Spotlighting Seshata reminded me that where there’s a will, there’s a way and to trust the process. There are many times when social media, Patreon and IRL relationships cause me to compare myself to others or go into analysis paralysis.
I know I’m not alone based on the results I got when I googled “social media comparing yourself to others and analysis paralysis.” So, if you can relate or just want some cool resources and tips to help you on your smutlancer journey, this interview is for you.
Happy Thanksgiving, Smutlancers! I know tomorrow is officially Thanksgiving, but since you probably won’t be on your phone or computer tomorrow unless you’re posting/uploading food and family pics, I figured I’d say it now.
Besides a long, drawn-out Thanksgiving prayer, it has been an unofficial tradition in my family that whoever hosts Thanksgiving dinner asks everyone to say one thing they’re thankful for before the eating commences. Before we get into this month’s spotlight, I’d like to st...
Our conversation was filled with so many gems that I had to substantially condense this interview. Still, there is a ton of wisdom packed in this Smutlancer Spotlight -with a little cussin’ in between. One of my favorite quotes from our conversation is: “you can stop walking with your eyes closed now. Open your eyes and see yourself.”
So, this article is dedicated to any smutlancer struggling to get their footing financially or seeing the value they bring to the world. Let’s give ourselves permission to open our eyes, believe that money will come, and see ourselves for who we are: dope AF!
It officially feels like fall. The leaves are falling, pumpkins are back, and Halloween is around the corner. As a kid, I remember being told that holidays won’t mean as much as I get older. However, I’m proud to say Halloween still means a lot to me and many adults I know. So, it doesn’t surprise me that it was the inspiration for making October National Kink Month. Yahoo News reported that “October has been declared National Kink Month by Stockroom.com...
Lola and I not only chat about her smutlancing journey but we also talk about the need to take breaks from erotic content because sex work is still work. So, if Dirty Lola needs to take content breaks now and then, it’s safe to say that we all can take breaks when we need them too – without the guilt trip. Check out our interview.
Our interview was so jam-packed that not every detail made it to the article. So for the first time, we are releasing the full video interview in addition to this article.
In the video, you’ll hear about how Orpheus connects spirituality with sexuality, the impact of 50 Shades of Grey, power dynamics in the workplace, and our dialogue about poverty mindsets. You can find the video on www.orpheusblack.com! In this article, you can read about how he feels about being open about what he does, who inspires him, a life-changing experience he had as a phone sex worker, and much more.
Orpheus Black is the author of “The Enso: A Philosophy of Submission.” He is an educator with 25 years of experience and several titles in the BDSM and kink community. In the video, not only will you hear about the above in its entirety, but you’ll also hear about how he connects spirituality with sexuality, the impact of 50 Shades of Grey, power dynamics in the workplace, and our dialogue about poverty mindsets. You can find the video on www.orpheusblack.com!
Lotus RopeWolf (he/him) and Blane (she/her) are romantic partners who love BDSM so much they came together to teach. Their relationship includes BDSM (D/S dynamics) and ethical non-monogamy. Together they use their skills and experience to make information accessible to kinksters at every stage of their journey. During the interview, we talk about how they got started, content creation, what a typical day looks like for them as a power couple, and much more. Check out the full interview below.
Since Caress intertwines diversity, equity, and inclusion in their smutlancer work, we talk about how race and gender relate to sexuality. If this subject makes you feel uncomfortable, we invite you to consider a different perspective by taking in what works for you and leaving what does not while still respecting a smutlancing journey that’s different from your own. We’re excited for you to read our interview. Enjoy!
Editor’s note: We are so happy to be able to bring back the Smutlancer Profile series! Smutlancer contributor Chelsea Hamlet (she/her) pitched the idea to revive it and help showcase the depth and breadth of smutlancers who are creating content and writing about sex — and making money doing it! This monthly column would not be alive today without Chelsea’s help and hard work.
In our interview, Quinn talks about trans-inclusivity, mental health, mental illness, depression, suicide, disability, anonymity, identity, and how it informs his smutlancing journey. He also talks about being outed as a smutlancer to his parents, coming out as trans to his family, and why he almost quit blogging all together.
I learned who Ducky Doolittle was when I attended Women of SexTech’s first virtual conference on May 2, 2020. Her charming personality, authenticity, and love of the work she’s been doing for years beamed through my computer screen. After her session, I instantly sent her a DM and followed her on Instagram. So, it was only right that I reached out to Ducky for an interview to give us details about her successful career. During our interview, we talk about how she got started, her favorite content to create, her love of candles, and much more. Enjoy!
I first heard about Morgan on Sept. 16, 2017. I was scrolling on Twitter and saw a tweet from The Hoodwitch promoting a new addition to their online store, The Slutist Tarot deck. I was intrigued by the Death card, which was illustrated by a fem cartoon in a black latex bodysuit with a whip bent over in red bottoms. Shortly after, I purchased the tarot deck, which is the main deck I use today, and admired her work as a smutlancer ever since. During our interview, Morgan talks about her journey as a graphic designer, her writing career, her decision to become a trauma therapist, and much more.
