Hi, my love - whomever you may be, from the far corners of the vast unpredictable space that is the Internet. Thank you for even visiting this page. Thank you for being curious about supporting independent art, for supporting creativity and liberation and freedom.

Patreon allows me to create what I want, when I want, with the sole purpose of expressing myself and making art. It also allows me to write waay more often, because I don’t have to focus on other ways to make money.

I’m not interested in making art that is palatable. I’m not interested in saying things that will get the most likes or make the most money, and I’m not interested in having a traditional business model.

I am interested in creating things that make people feel, things that are challenging, and things that have an impact.

You allow me to do that.

I just released my first book of poetry. It is stunning. I designed the cover, hired other artists to create what I imagined, and wrote this book over the past few years without even realizing I was writing it. It has come in spurts – from airplane rides, to having to stop in the middle of a hike, to waking up in the middle of the night with sentences flowing through my body.

Poetry has always been the way I have expressed my thoughts for myself – I never in my wildest dreams thought I would actually publish it.

You can buy it now on Amazon. It’s called “how to live when the world is dying."

Since then, ideas have been nonstop flowing out of me. And I am asking for your help in order to support their creations.

If you haven’t been following me for a while, it would be helpful to know these things: I am trained as a sex coach – I work with people on where they hold their stories and emotions in their bodies. I teach them how to create new stories and body responses that are more supportive. This coaching is life-altering, and you can read more about it on my website.

I post photos of my menstrual blood every month; those went viral earlier this year. People around the world send me messages almost daily about how those photos and my writing underneath them has positively impacted their relationship with their bodies and to the world around them.

I also have a podcast that comes out biweekly-ish. It’s called “Sex, Love, & Power with Demetra Nyx,” and it’s on iTunes and Spotify.

I want to be able to continue to make these things. I also want to be able to make art and anything else I imagine without having to sell it commercially or having to wonder if it is “sellable.” I believe that my creations are important to the world, and I think if you’re here, you probably do too. I want to be able to get them into the hands of more people.

I want to have more time and space to create and express without spending time on marketing, or coaching so much that it saps my creative energy, or writing things I’m not excited about. I adore coaching, but I would rather spend most of my time creating things that can have an impact on more people (and I'd love to be able to offer those things at low prices, so they are accessible to most people).

I have hesitated to make a Patreon because it always felt like asking for help. Part of me wanted to be like, I can do it all on my own, I can make things that sell, I can succeed in the traditional business model. And I’ve since learned that I can….. at the expense of my creative energy, or by editing myself for public consumption. A traditional business model is not sustainable if I want to be able to make all the things I desire to make. 

I want this to be a community. So, I am asking for your support. Those close to me know how much I adore giving gifts, and Patreon allows me to do this in so many ways. Even $1/month is so helpful, if you can afford it – and I’ll reward that greatly. I looooove the idea of having a giant online community that is interactive and personal and special.

I decided to change the tiers so that everybody, no matter which tier you're on, gets the same things. I want you to pay what you are able to afford, and I don't want you to receive less because you can't afford as much as others. 

Whatever tier you're on, you will receive: poetry, writing, blogs, photos, videos, a live call once a month, guided meditations/practices, etc. Yup, even for $1. 

(that being said, if you have extra $ and want coaching or a full in-person day with me, check out the coaching page on my website). 

I want you to be a part of this, whatever it turns into. I have a feeling that it will be epic.

I want to see what comes out of me when I have the ability to only focus on the creation of different types of art.

And I’ll end with this…. mostly, I want people to FEEL again. It seems like everybody I see has become so disconnected from their bodies and from the world around them. We learn to spend so much time in our heads. We learn to be afraid of vulnerability, even with ourselves. We learn to be terrified of going deeply into our bodies to feel our emotions.

I’ve spent so much time traveling and in national parks and it breaks my heart to see people taking photos on their phones without ever feeling a thing. It breaks my heart to be a part of conversations with others that never scratch below the surface.

It’s killing us, and it’s killing the world around us, too.

I don’t know if these are problems that can be solved, but I want to feel it all and express it all anyway.

I would love to be able to do that as a community, together.
