is creating sentimental smut

Since 2009, I've been writing intensely personal smut and sharing it online at mcnaughty.tumblr.com (nsfw).

I write from my imagination, from my life, from dreams I half remember, from snippets of conversations I overhear on the bus. My writing tends to the vignette rather than more structured stories: I want to share a moment, a feeling, to walk in on the middle of something and leave without knowing how it ends.

Not everything I write is explicitly sexual, and not everything I write is inherently emotional, but a lot of what I write is both. Whether I'm writing, or taking self-portraits, or presenting performance art, I always come back to sex and feelings—I make sentimental smut.

I created a Patreon page primarily as a way to better connect with my readers. Tumblr can be a lonely platform, especially as an erotica creator, and I'm excited to expand and facilitate more interaction with my audience. Knowing people are reading pushes me to keep sharing my writing.

Patronage has also enabled me to republish the first collected volume of my minizine Sentimental Smut. It was originally created as a super-limited run of 21, with a unique set of centerfold photos in each collection of eight minizines. I had always envisioned that volume as the first in an ongoing series, and I'm already starting to curate material for future volumes.

I've gone with a monthly (rather than per-creation) model, as the size and scope of content I create varies widely. I want to continue to have that freedom, and not worry about homogenizing my output into chunks of comparable size or perceived value.

Thank you so much for your support!

Goals
$5 of $75 per creation
I'll work on collecting and curating the huge number of Twitter sexts I've generated over the years, ranging from purely absurdist to straight-up erotic, and create a chapbook out of them. When it's finished, I'll release it as a PDF to all patrons, and as a physical mail out to anyone pledging at the $5 level or above.
