What is listed below are just a few of our favorite submissions from the past week. Be sure to check out all the wonderful offerings from our talented writers on the main Sensual page.

Sensual: An erotic life is just over a year old, and we’ve come a long way in the past 15 months. Our readership is up to 3.5 thousand and averages about 1,500 unique visitors per day. We have a wonderful cadre’ of regular writers, including some of the biggest name sex-writers on Medium. Plus, we have a whole lot of fun here!

We love the community feel of this publication and the way that so many writers riff off of each other’s ideas and support each other’s work. It’s truly become just the kind of publication that I always envisioned it could be. If you would like to join us as a contributor we’d love to see your sex-positive essays and erotic poetry. Please check out the Submission Guidelines for more about the flavor and feel of what we are looking for as well as details of how to become a Sensual writer. We look forward to hearing from you.

And if you haven’t already, sign up to receive this newsletter directly. This is particularly recommended for Sensual writers since it is the primary way we have to communicate with you directly as a group.


The featured writer of the week is Zara Everly. Zara describes herself as a literary harlot, and we love reading her personal stories of sexual empowerment and being a “naughty librarian” — (she doesn’t have sex in the library) but she is adventurous and works as a research information professional. Here are a few of our favorites from Zara.
