Seeking quality erotica (or just smut Mayerson likes).

Please email your story as a word or text document or in the body of an email to You can use one of these templates: MS Word, RTF, or Text.

I’ll read stories of any length. Longer stories, novellas and novels will be serialized over several issues. I’ll publish whenever I have a good issue to publish.

Erotica can be hetro, homo, object, masturbation, or something I don’t know about. I really don’t like stories centered on rape, coercion, BDSM, mutilation, snuff, well, you get the picture. I like to publish evocative sex, cuddle porn, and good, reasonably clean fun between consenting (human or humanoid) adults. I like well-written stories, of course, and a little sex with good plot and characters goes a long way with me. If it’s very little sex, I might ask to transfer your story to Storylandia, our sister publication.

At the moment, I’m the only editor, so here’s what I would not like to have submitted and won’t publish:

Anything that will get me sued, arrested, or lynched. I’m pretty sure you realize that that means anything illegal, plagiarized, hateful, or scarier than even I can deal with. Also, song titles are okay, but no song lyrics. The RIAA has gone insane, better to stay out of their way at all times. As editor, I handle the blowback, so I make the final call on what I feel I can legally, morally, and have the guts to, publish. Oh, and no furries, thank you. I’m sure you understand.

There’s no money, but you do get a copy of the issue and discounted extra copies. You also keep all your rights to your work. I only have permission to publish on a story by story basis.

I look forward to reading your stories. Send ’em on in!
