My Top 25 Medium Writers on Sex, Sexuality, and Relationships

Recently I hit 5000+ followers on Medium! Yeah me!!! But, if HH & I have learned anything in our experience blogging about sex and literotica, it’s that this is a special, warmhearted, supportive niche of writers in the vast expanse of the blogosphere.

It’s really important that we support each other and leverage our successes to help others. A rising tide raises all boats.

Recently, Meaghan Ward wrote an excellent piece about Medium’s Curation system. I looked and saw that I’m not being curated by Medium. I think I follow all the rules, but who knows — maybe the curators don’t like that I often use my own sexy photos rather than downloading free images off the web. In any case, I thought, “You know what, I can curate too.”

This being the season of giving and also the end of the year, HH & I are looking back to see whose writing we’ve really loved and how we can help bring some visibility to those great writers out there with fewer than 5000 followers. So, if you’re a Medium writer about sex, sexuality, and relationships and you’re not on this list, it may be because you already have over 5000 followers. (Yes, Jessica Wildfire, Emma Austin, Kris Gage, and Shannon Ashley, I’m talking about you.) So, here I’m going to use what leverage I have to help others and I encourage you to do the same. Writing isn’t a competitive sport, so I hope you’ll share this with your friends on and off line.

And, since so many people seem to already be doing it, I might as well join in with some advice to you about how to get 5000+ followers:

  1. Write really well and fairly often. (Just an FYI, I’m not the writer, as some of you have mistakenly thought. My man, HH, does the writing. I just handle the social media accounts — except the blog, which he does — since he’s sooooo very busy being a genius. I also inspire the writing, so he says.)
  2. Read what others are writing and clap for them and comment on their posts. They like that!
  3. Be supportive. (Are you noticing a theme here?)
  4. Submit to great publications like Rose’s My Erotica.

Onto the list, which is in no particular order, so don’t be upset if you’re at the bottom rather than the top. Also, if you’re not on the list, feel free to attract our attention by commenting with a link to a story you want us to read in the comments section. Our apologies to anyone not on the list. 25 is a random number.

Also, we ask all the authors listed to make their own list, use the award photo at the top, link back to this post, and pass the love onto your favorite sex, sexuality, literotica, and kink writers.

  1. Meaghan Ward — A great writer with an interest in exploring more sex with women. Hello!
  2. Demeter deLune — Talk about steamy!!! Wow! Also, she is great at supporting other writers with comments, claps, and highlights.
  3. Elle Beau — An edgy writer on so many topics who engages the reader in her tales.
  4. Rachel Raven — A former escort who gives an inside look at sex work. Honest, sexy, and business savvy.
  5. Ms. Part Time Wino — An unabashed slutty writer who has many sexy stories to tell.
  6. Gabrielle Schaefer — An up-and-cumming voice. She’s putting her toe in the pool of erotica to test the waters and could use some encouragement.
  7. Allison Leigh — An all-around talent who is writing great commentary on the sex/porn industry.
  8. Richie Crowley — I’ll admit, he’s not a literotica writer, but he is a good writer and has done a lot to support writers of all sorts and for that you should check him out.
  9. Katie Sweet- A hotwife after my own heart. Her memoir of her slutty college days is a must read.
  10. Marilyn Flower — An admitted sex and love addict, she writes about all sorts of interesting topics.
  11. Maggie Beaudett — A translator and writer about sex. Great combo! With titles like, “Make Blowjobs Great Again,” you have to love her!
  12. Christine Stevens — Very sexy reads with a prolific mind!
  13. Z.I. Potts — An erotic writer with one particular kink. Not for everyone, but if it turns you on, she’s tops!
  14. Mysterious Witt — Not only mysterious, but very very sexy!
  15. Rachel Hope — Writer on polyamory and other forms of fun in the bedroom.
  16. Yael Wolfe — One of the hottest authors on Medium with a nice mix of sexy stories and direct writing.
  17. Feminista Jones — A writer about polyamory and kink, often featured in the publication, ZORA, a publication specifically for women of color. As our good friend Cara has written on her blog, there is a lamentable under representation of women of color in the kink and erotica blogosphere. Feminista Jones is a voice for change and deserves your encouragement.
  18. Faith Ann — A 20-something aspiring author who really can write on lots of topics, but is great when talking about her sexcapades.
  19. M.C. Frances — Writing about open marriage, swinging, and polyamory.
  20. Chelsea Andrew — Writing on mental health and sex, when those worlds collide beautiful things can happen.
  21. Lara Sterling — A great writer on sex and relationships. There’s something we can all learn from in each article.
  22. Divina Grey — True tales of motherhood, marriage, life, and love.
  23. Average Don Juan — One of the few male authors on this list. Honest, sexy, a hunk of a writer.
  24. Rachel Kramer Bussel — A ligit writer who has a very sexy streak!
  25. Kat — A woman-on-woman writer who I’d like to meet in person!

There you have it. The completely non-definitive list of 25 great sexy, kinky, NSFW authors from Medium. Show them the love they deserve.

Unfaithfully Yours, Lola & HH.
