Hello! Thanks for coming by my Patreon page
This is a tool where you can support my writing. With just a tiny dollar donation for every story, essay, journal entry, or other expression that I make, you get access to my private patreon space, and feel good in supporting a queer writer’s hard work.
Who is Sinclair and what is Sugarbutch?
I’m a writer, a non-binary butch, a feminist queer dominant, and many other things, currently living in Oakland, California. My current online project is Sugarbutch.net, where I’ve been keeping an online journal, publishing essays about kink and gender, and writing queer kink erotica since 2007.
Sugarbutch updates 2-5 times per month, which often include a sex toy review (usually focused on strap-on technology), an essay on feminist kink, a dirty story, a journal entry, and sometimes an erotica story by a guest author. Above all, Sugarbutch is a personal writing project, where I’m working out my own ideas about sex, gender, kink, and relationships.
I write a few other places online, too. Primarily, I’m part of a spiritual community called Body Trust, and I write an essay on the wheel of the year once a month, as well as editing the monthly podcast, Pleasure Lab. But aside from that, you’ll occasionally see my articles published on other sites, or podcast episodes where I’m a guest.
Patreon has made it possible for me to:
- Remove all the text and photo ads from the footers on Sugarbutch, making it a cleaner reading experience as well as easier to read discreetly
- Upgrade the web hosting plan I’m on so that there's a lot less overload and no more server crashing
- Move the mailing list to a better provider and actually keep up with folks that way
- Feel supported in my writing and publishing, knowing there are folks who are willing to give a little back and care about my growth and progress as a writer
But beyond that, Patreon has helped to create a little group of people who I trust with my work. I feel excited to update with what’s going on with me, and I love hearing from all of you and your work and lives, too. It feels like an inner circle of friends, and I’m ever grateful for that support.
Some of the things Patreon patrons got recently:
- Free pre-releases of my ebooks
- Discount codes for online workshops and other books
- Private photographs from photo shoots (the ones that I don’t want to find their way to tumblr)
- Journal entries that include details of the latest emotional work I’ve been doing, which have to do with developmental trauma, re-traumatizing events, communication skills in a long term relationship, and how to maintain being a Master through also having a cycling mood disorder
- Dirty stories that feel a bit too edgy to have available to the general public
So hey, don't you want to become a patron?
This is set up to charge per post, not per month. That means if you pledge $1 and I post four times, you pay $4 at the end of the month. But you can also set a monthly limit on how much you pledge, regardless of how many times I post. At the very end of the checkout process, you can opt to add a "monthly max." If you want to be charged $5/month, just say that you want to support one time per month. Otherwise you'll be pledging $5/post and not $5/month.
Do you want to support me, but don’t want to/can’t pledge here on Patreon?
Thank you! I totally understand that sometimes, it’s just not possible to spend even a few more dollars a month. I’ve been there.
- You can make a one-time donation by sending money via Paypal to [email protected]
- You can buy some of my books here
- You can write a review of any of my books on Goodreads, Amazon, and Smashwords — those really help with exposure!
Want to be a creator on Patreon?You should do it! You can sign up using my affiliate code, and I would be happy to send you some advice about what I’ve seen that works. I highly suggest looking around and backing a variety of projects — people super famous, and awesome future-famous people too — so you can observe the things you like and find your own style.
Thank you for keeping me writing!
Can you even imagine what kind of work I would be able to make if I could do this full time? I never really thought that’d be a reality, but Patreon makes it feel possible. There have been so many times where I was ready to quit, ready to delete it all from my online archives and stop paying all the money per month to host it all. Sometimes it feels like I’m just throwing my work out into a void, and I have no idea if anyone is listening. But having just a little bit come back to me by way of money and personal interaction has made a huge difference.
By helping me here, even at a $1 level, you help me make and publish all sorts of queer, genderqueer, kinky writings into the world. I will keep writing regardless of the support, but it really is magical that some people choose to pay for free art.
