Future Changes to Elust

Mostly in part due to discussions had and things learned at MomentumCon, there is going to be a small change to the way Elust is run in the future.

As a pre-cursor to a bigger movement in the works, Elust will be the first to pledge to blog ethically and in keeping with sex-positive values. This doesn’t mean a whole lot to most participants. What it does mean is that the general definition of sex-positive will be applied to submitted posts; if the panel doesn’t feel it meets basic sex-positive guidelines, then the submitted post will not be included. Quite a number of participants (or those considering participating) have in the past expressed concern at the occasional included post (or site) in the digest as being something they would not want to support linking to and therefore were asked to be removed. I would much rather feel proud of each and every post that is in Elust – and have all participants feel safe and proud to re-post the links on their site – than include a couple of hinky, or overly-commercialized SEO-articles/sites.

Please note that this post is only a generic notification, and more concise and complete explanations will be added to the site in coming weeks. If you have any questions, concerns, would like to be on the panel, or objections to this please email me at: Questions.e.lust  @  gmail.com

Update: This is not a one-person operation. Elust is almost as much yours as it is mine, ours. You all reap benefits, I simply facilitate it. While I’d like to think that there is a universal mind set on what sex-positive/ethical blogging is and isn’t (I’d think you’d do well to listen to what Carol Queen says about it in that Wiki link above, she’s quite right), I absolutely want to hear from you. Don’t want just me making decisions? Then participate in this very brief open-ended poll:

Poll Closed

YOU tell ME.

While I always look at each and every submission that comes in, I’ll be relying also on the judging panel to speak up if they see a post that is questionable to them. Judges are now even more important! (email if you want to help there) The decision to not include something will never be made by just one person.

Women, Swinging, and Seduction – From Meeting to Fucking in the Swinging Lifestyle: “My wife wants to drop out of swinging and instead have an open relationship…” announced a good friend of mine..

The Scent of a Woman (Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love my Snatch): Years back, during a scene, I had my dominant lean in and whisper lasciviously that he could “smell my wet pussy” and I started to cry.

5 Kinky Toys from the Office Supply Store: If you’re a nerd like me, you find the idea of office supplies a little bit arousing already but Pet & I paid a recent visit with an even more focused purpose — finding the best pervertibles Staples had to offer.

Two Fantasies in One: The sexting progressed from just spanking and fingering to fingering both my holes, to slipping a butt plug in to punish me for being a naughty girl. By the time Tuesday came around we were both very horny and on edge to get together.

Ethics in Blogging: Ethics don’t always equal human kindness/respect for others. You can be a snarky, grumpy shit-stirrer but still be ethical. You can be sweet as pie on the outside and be unethical.

Roadmaps of ConsentI fucking love consent. I love safewords. I can be much more cruel, and push much harder, if I trust my partner to tell me when I go too far.

Staying SafeOne cock, from one man, missing one condom, ultimately led to my brother’s death. And that sucks.

Flying the Friendly SkiesOne button on her sweater was undone, there was a rip in her hose, scratches on her boots, and her hair was carelessly pinned back with stray wisps of hair escaping. There was a curious flavor of soiling about her, something a bit dirty and unkempt.

Labels and my thoughts… In the past year and a half I have gone from being someone that was lost, without identity that fit, rattling around inside myself to someone that has names for what they are.
