Welcome to my space.
You can call me Avory. I’m glad you came.
Who am I? I am a genderqueer, polyamorous, sex-positive, kinky writer, blogger, and activist. I am 20-something, live in the United States, am a Southerner, identify as feminist. I am also able-bodied, white, middle-class, and college-educated, so feel free to call my ass out for a privilege check if it becomes necessary.
Who are you? You, dear reader, are someone who is curious about sexuality, likes reading about sexuality, likes talking about sexuality, or is just kind of bored and poking around the Internet. Welcome! I encourage commenting and sharing thoughts here whenever the urge strikes you. You can also reach me at email@example.com. If you want me to review a book or a product, speak at your event, write a guest post for you, promote something you’re involved with, etc., feel free to ask. Any reviews that appear on this blog are honest and any endorsements are sincere, so please keep that in mind.
What is this blog for, anyway? This is a space to share my thoughts about sexuality. Topics will definitely include polyamory, kink, queerness, and gender. Other topics will doubtless come up. This is a place for sex education, sharing thoughts, and for riffing off others’ ideas. This is not a sexuality news or current events blog. I will tell you about any relevant events I attend, as I attend them, but my budget is extremely hand-to-mouth right now, so attendance at such things will be limited. If you’re looking for something broader than a sexuality blog, please feel free to visit my main blog at Radically Queer.
Please note: This blog includes concepts of an adult nature. I believe that in order to make our world more sex-positive, we must open our mouths about sexuality and have some frank discussion. I try to warn before a cut for very explicit sexual language, but you should expect to see discussion of topics including kinky lifestyles, anatomy, pornography, and sex work. If you are under the legal age where you live, I highly recommend Scarleteen, an amazing sex-education website for young adults.
What is the comment policy? I reserve the right to delete any comment that is blatantly hateful, offensive, rude, etc. I will avoid deleting comments whenever possible, though, because I’m a fan of free speech. So basic rule of thumb: feel free to express an opinion, just don’t word it as an insult. Perhaps posts here will engender some heated, even angry discussion, and I welcome that. It’s good to get people talking. Just keep your language respectful to whatever extent possible.
