Sex blogs are getting popular, or at least with people who have an interest in reading or writing about sex. This is sort of a sex blog. Not entirely since, for one thing, I’m not having any to write about. For another thing I don’t update as often as the blog purists would say is necessary. Anyway, I still don’t see myself being a sex blogger. It would be strange to write about my body parts and what I did with them for mass public consumption. It sounds almost pornographic!
For me, wallflower that I am, this is more than enough. It’s not easy pulling out some idea worthy of Adult BackWash once a week. Who really feels that absorbed with sex? Not me.
I do think someone who would write a sex blog and keep it updated must have quite a huge preoccupation with sex and sex stuff. Maybe you think it would be easy to write a sex blog cause you think about sex all the time. But, try it.
Anyway, it’s interesting to see who writes them. I like to read about the people behind the blogs. What led them to writing a sex blog, what do they get out of it and mostly, what keeps them going.
At least it is a step up from being a phone sex ‘actress’, at least as I see it. Sex bloggers can set their own hours, be less available physically and emotionally to their customers/ readers. That is an important difference. Pretty much the main reason I can’t see myself becoming a phone sex person even though the money would be pretty great if not highly tempting. But, I don’t want to have to listen to some guy jerking off and then hanging up on me when he’s done. I want to be an important part of the whole process not just some handy tool.
So, the diva in me rises again. No wonder the part of sex blogging that most appeals to me is the fame. Maybe not the fame I always saw for myself when I was growing up, but fame none the less.
Anyway, if I ever do get a sex life again, I’ll slip in a few details, a few interesting tidbits, just enough to whet your whistle and keep you wondering if I really did any of that or am I just another wallflower making it all up as I go along. You’ll never really know will you. Hopefully I will.
