Eroticon Speech on Sex Work and Disability | Part III

3) You very rarely hear the voice of the sex worker or person with a disability talking, other people talk over us and for us.  This one ties neatly into my previous point, so I won’t go on too much about it, but even when our voices are portrayed they’re twisted. News articles want a story that juicy – just last year I came down to Eroticon, but I came down a day early to go to an industry event.

Eroticon Speech on Sex Work and Disability | Part II

I lost my sexuality for a year. A love letter to Eroticon. 

I lost my sexuality for a year. A love letter to Eroticon. I’ve just spent a year living through hell. I wish that was an exaggeration. 12 months of insidious pain, climaxing in a 12 day hospital stay, and a bunch more daily meds with powerful side effects. I’m not cured – there’s  a chance I may get worse, but either way I’ve come up for some fresh air. A more fleshed out description lives here. It’s only because of a recent sex filled weekend at Eroticon that I realised just how out of touch with my sexuality, wants, needs,…

Eve’s Eroticon 2018 Meet and Greet

Eroticon 2018 My 2017 Eroticon Meet and Greet  NAME (and Twitter if you have one) Eve E Adler, but Eve or E are just fine … though if you’re feeling frisky Miss Adler will do.
