Are you a sex-positive person
whose life has been affected
Are you a sex activist who's
struggled with a fight to create
Do you have a story to tell about
how and why you've dedicated
Celebrate Sex: Activists Speak Out
We are seeking sex-positive essays and creative non-fiction short stories from sex-positive people: writers, artists, sex educators, sex workers, sex activists, and those who celebrate sex as a way of life, a profession, a vocation and a calling for an anthology tentatively titled, Celebrate Sex: Activists Speak Out, a new book proposal currently pending a publisher.
Stories and essays are required to be written reflecting the positive outcome of a sex-negative upbringing, and other life experiences. Many of us have struggled to survive in a world that offers so many mixed messages regarding our bodies, our genders, sexual orientation, and even sex itself. Our goal is to show that a negative background can possibly lead to "backlash" which may create a sex-positive lifestyle, even a celebration of our sexual selves.
