About Submissions

I'd like to read unique, thoughtful and artistic stories and essays about sex and related themes for our Lust Thrust Thursdays column. First times, transcendental orgasms, lackluster experiences that make you rethink sex itself, sex in culture, pornography, religion and private life; I'm open to submissions that will give us something new to consider about our favorite deed.
