Who We Are

SGP was founded to support womxn and femmes as they explore their sexuality without shame, providing an open-minded, non-judgmental, and educational platform to promote sex-positive empowerment. We approach human sexuality through a vigorously sex-positive lens, and we aim to support all our readers and followers in their unique journey to overcome all forms of sex-based shame, whether it’s slut-shaming, body-shaming, or kink-shaming. It is our mission to highlight an array of voices across genders, ethnicities, and identities to provide a platform for womxn, trans, and non-binary folks to share their experiences, perspectives, and expertise.

 

Our Voice

We aim to create content that feels approachable, engaging, easy-to-read, and humorous, while also taking a more high-level, philosophical, and thought-out perspective at the complex factors that shape our sexual beliefs, and how those beliefs influence our lives, relationships, and society. While we still value the edgy humor that defined our brand when it was first founded back in 2011, we now strive to take a broader look at sexuality and the systemic, cultural, societal, learned, and subconscious factors that influence how we frame and shape our own and societal perspectives of sexuality.

 

What kind of articles are you looking for?

SGP publishes think pieces, listicles, exploration pieces, and traditional articles, focusing on sexuality, feminism, activism, intersectionality, identity, dating, and relationships.

We receive a huge number of submissions so please be mindful of the following before submitting your post.

Your post has an approachable, well-written, engaging feel and tone. We’re looking for articles with a fresh perspective that go beyond the status quo. Do not submit journal-style posts, basic listicles, or 101 concepts that are repeated all over the web already.

Your post has a catchy angle and title. An intriguing title and concept is a must for capturing our attention, and the attention of our readers. Here are some of our favorite pieces we’ve published in the past that had engaging concepts and titles.

You avoid cliches and keep away from cheesy lines like “make it hot” or “spice things up”. Convey your thoughts in ways that are engaging, concise, easy to understand, and don’t rely on tongue-in-cheek phrasing (unless it’s part of the humor of the post).

You support people in making the right decision for them. Our goal is not to make decisions for people, but to help them make the best choice for their own unique circumstances. We want to provide the best information we can, and encourage people to consider the nuances with us.

Your post is well-written, concise (between 700-1500 words), and edited with a grammar checker. We recommend Grammarly or free resources like Paper Rater or Grammarly. We will do a final edit, but please submit your best work that has already been checked for spelling and grammar.

 

Please make sure your piece meets all of the following criteria:

  • 100% Original. Content cannot be published anywhere else, and will not be published anywhere else later. Properly cite any borrowed content or pictures.
  • Fresh And Unique. We already have plenty of content around safe sex, sex positions, and sex and dating tips. While we will still accept articles around these topics, giving your piece a fresh angle or take will greatly increase the chance of your piece getting accepted.
  • Authentic. Draw from your own personal experience to make compelling points about large societal issues and structures.
  • Not Hateful. Cannot victimize, harass, or degrade any individual or group. Cannot contain racist, homophobic, classist, sexist, or otherwise hateful content.
  • No pornography. Including graphic pictures and erotica.
  • No outside links. We will remove any links that point to sites other than Slutty Girl Problems with the exception of academic articles or other major publications used for citation purposes.
  • No poetry, academic placements, or promotional pieces. We also don’t accept link placements, posts that aren’t grammatically correct, upcoming events, or reviews.

 

How do I submit?

  • Double-check. Make sure your post follows all of the above guidelines.
  • Agree. By submitting, you agree that your content becomes the property of Slutty Girl Problems LLC, and we have the right to use it. By submitting this content via email, you agree that you have read and agree to our Terms and Conditions and Submission Agreement.
  • Send. Fill out the Google form below with your post.

You will be contacted if your post is accepted for submission, and edits and suggestions may be sent back to you. Your work may be edited, condensed, and adapted for use on social media as a caption, such as on Instagram. Please include an IG @username so we can attribute the caption to you. If your post is accepted, you will get a bio on our site to accompany your post, with a short bio, photo, and optional link.

If your post is accepted, it will be shared on our website and often to our community of 515,000 followers on social media. Your work will help support, empower, and educate people of all genders, ethnicities, and identities all over the world as they explore and create their own authentic sexuality. Please note that while we have an engaged following and passionate community – our behind-the-scenes team is very small and passion-led. We are not a high-revenue company with investors or big business funding. Because of these limitations, we are unfortunately not able to pay contributors for publication. We completely understand that this isn’t the right fit for everyone. If it works for you, we’re so excited to share your story and writing with our community!

If you do not hear back, your submission was not accepted for publication. Unfortunately, we cannot respond to all inquiries due to the volume received. Please do not follow up if you do not receive a response. We cannot give edits or critiques to pieces that are not accepted for submission, or a reason that the piece was not accepted, due to the volume received and our very small team.

 

Editing & Feedback

If we decide to accept your post, we will always look over your work before it is published. We may edit it for grammar, flow, or content. We will let you know of any major changes and may request that you edit it again or add more content. We will often provide feedback, suggestions, and constructive criticisms for your work. This is to help you grow as a writer and improve your writing long-term. Always let us know if you have any questions!
