    Does anyone else here maintain a sex blog? Anyone thought of sex blogging? If you have a sex blog, what lessons have you drawn from it?

    I started my own sex bloghref> back in 2010. After a longer period of inactivity, I made it a New Year's resolution for 2014 to reactivate it and to maintain it regularly. I've found it to be useful way of expressing and sharing experiences, both good and bad. Thus far, it has inspired my most productive writing period in years.

    If you're a writer (and even better, for your readers, a good one) I can see the value in it.

    But the rest of us for the most part live boring lives and have written correspondingly boring blogs.

    I want to start a blog, but I don't know which website to use. I would prefer a free one. I want to blog about a variety of things. It is going to be a personal blog about sex, relationships, adventure, food, fun and whatever else happens ha-ha. So does anyone know a good blogging site for that?

    Yes, I wrote down all the fervid details, for about a year. Then I was cleaning up the bedroom and accidentally threw that half-piece of note paper away. icon_redface.gif

    I've added a (boring, technical) blog to my business web site, but I've started out with a few entries randomly back-dated over the last couple of years. I don't want to get into the trap of having to write something just because it's Thursday, instead of because I have something to write about. So far it sort of deals with frequently asked questions.

    So, in a similar way, I suppose that a sex blog URL would be a good reply to the ubiquitous "stats? into?" messages. Eh... less effort to just send them to somebody else's. icon_razz.gif

    Flip a coin, as far as I can tell. I don't even know how many sides the coin needs; blogger, wordpress, or maybe tumblr? I like wordpress for keeping technical notes like mindgarden mentioned.

    I just use the blog feature within iWeb. It is hosted on my own web site. But I have to migrate off that this year, since apple has dumped iWeb. It was getting a bit limiting, anyway. I also have a "boat blog," hosted on a site for owners of similar boats - the only people on the planet who would care about the subject.

    So I was thinking a bit more about this just now, (while doing boring repetitive tasks in the lab.) A "sex blog" would necessarily be about other people, almost as much as it's about you. How do your friends/lovers/tricks react to being written about? Don't some or most of them get upset? Or do you only write about glowingly positive experiences? Would such a blog make people more or less willing to date you? (I assume here, that these are chronicles of non-monogamous adventures, but I may be wrong.)

    I don't know about your environment, but the "dating scene" around here is small enough that even if names are not named, people will know who you're talking about. As someone once noted, we are all only separated by about six degrees of penetration. It brings to mind the short-lived "social network" associated with the iTrick sex database software. Basically a public rating of your sexual performance icon_surprised.gif Not a good idea for most people. I'm sure that some people could take in stride as part of the fun of recreational sex. However, I'd guess that most people are a bit more uptight than that.

    Or do you assume that nobody will actually read such a blog? (Not a bad assumption for blogs in general.) In which case, why not just write a "sex diary," without publishing it?

    Thus far, I haven't gotten far into writing about the encounters/hook-ups I've had. I've taken my time getting to that part of it, partly dealing with some of those same questions on what to write and how detailed I should be about those experiences.

    My hook-ups have been away from the places I live, primarily in Oslo or over in Miami and Albuquerque when I visit the US. If I gave details on the appearance of the people I've met, you'd probably still have a hard time identifying them. I am not worried about accidentally outing anyone. I think a good policy would be to only outright identify guys who already have a public sexual identity (such as a Twitter-friend I met with last summer); anyone else, even if they have a very explicit profile online, should be able to expect some discretion.

    I've in part used my blog as a place to store self-nudes. That way I can refer potential hook-ups to my blog in case they want to see more pics or get to understand me more before we hook up.

    I am decidedly non-monogamous, so if any guys are turned off by that, then it's best that they know so upfront.

    My blog is pretty much about me and my experiences with and thoughts on sex. I've set up regular Saturday posts of pics and video of me using sexual toys and am otherwise trying to include advice and other input I have regarding sex (such as a post on douching).
