Copyright, photographs and posting on social media
Just because you're in a photo doesn't mean you have a right to share it on Social Media. If you're commissioning a shoot get a proper contract.
Writing the perfect social media fetish profile
Writing a fetish profile is a labour of love for some, a terrifying ordeal for others. On Fetlife you can write entire novels, on Twitter you have less than 150 characters.
So how do you get those words onto the page.
First, be natural. Write what you feel rather than trying to conform to some preordained “winning format”.
Don’t think you have to write something and that’s it. You can rewrite it as often as you want.
Finally, don’t forget few people read profiles. You’re better off investing time in networking, sharing blog posts and being a participant in a community than fretting over a few words on a page.
Fetishists: stop hiding behind your lists of likes
Fetishists looking for a partner sometimes put up lists of likes and dislikes. This rarely works. Far better to start engaging with people on Social Media
Farewell to Tumblr. Porn won’t miss you
Tumblr has finally banned porn from its pages. With it goes societies, communities and artists for whom erotica and porn were important outlets.
Farewell to Google+
There’s lots of jokes floating around about this one, but I’m genuinely sad about it. My fetish profile isn’t used that much, but on the vanilla side it’s quite the different story. I’m in there daily participating in groups, sharing and commenting. I’m in discussions that have raged for weeks. Dammit, I’ve got friends there. […]
The “deactivate my account?” ploy for extra validation
I trawl Fetlife’s latest writing from time to time, as is my wont. I find interesting writing and erotica, sometimes tales that touch the heart. Some I “love”, others I comment on, more than a few I roll my eyes at and move on. A trend of recent weeks has been the “I’m thinking of […]
Has social media made our fetishes easier to live with?
Social media has exposed more people to latex, BDSM and bondage than I ever thought possible. Has this fueled abuse, or been unrestrained sexual liberation?
The problem with sharing on Pinterest
As you may know I used to maintain a Pinterest account and to be honest I had a bit of a love-hate relationship with it. The love bit was finding lots of fascinating images, articles and connections to inspire me. The hate is often what I found wasn’t from the original source but uploaded, pinned […]
Are you on Amazon’s cloud?
It transpires a Reddit user has been merrily uploading webcam porn to Amazon’s cloud. The user claims he was testing their “unlimited storage” claim and given it would take a fair few years to watch it all, I’m guessing that’s not an unreasonable assumption. The scripts he used are now out in the wild, so […]
You’ll never be someone’s Master if you’re a dick on Social Media
If your plan is to find a Mistress or slave on social media, don't behave like a dick. A shared sexuality is not enough to overcome this character flaw
Not everyone in these photos is into BDSM
Seen on a Fetlife profile…
“Please note that not all the people in my photos are into bdsm or part of the community … Please respect their privacy by not sharing my photos”
Or how about YOU respect their privacy by not posting them in the first place?
