Hot stories where people talk about what they want, negotiate limits, have safer sex, set boundaries, and use safewords.

About This Project

Consent Porn is a collection of erotica that prominently features consent. We want to put this together because we think consent can be really hot. We also think consent is an important thing to talk about, and sexy stories are a good way to get people talking.

This anthology will have stories where people do things like talk about what they want, negotiate their limits, discuss safer sex, set boundaries with their partners, use safewords, and check in with each other. Since consent is important for everyone, a lot of different kinds of sex and relationships will be included too. We'll have some characters and stories that are queer, kinky, and nonmonogamous, just to name a few.

We want to encourage people to write these stories and get as many people to read them as possible. We're asking for $5,000 so we can pay our writers, put out a print edition of the anthology, and put the collection up online where anyone can read it for free. Thanks for checking out this project and helping make this happen.


Get Involved in Other Ways

Whether you donate or not, it's also a huge help to share this project with others. If you think this project is a good idea, please pass it along to someone else who might agree!

We're going to need a lot of great writing to put this collection together! We won’t start choosing submissions until we’ve secured funding to make this project happen, but you’re welcome to submit a story now. Contributors will get a free copy of the book, and we'll pay at least 3 cents a word. Please send submissions to submissions@consentporn.com. You can visit and share the submissions page on our website at consentporn.com/submissions.

We're also going to need some help putting this all together and getting the book out into the world. Here’s some of the stuff we could use help with: publicizing the project, soliciting and reading submissions, proofreading, editing, designing the book and website, getting the anthology into stores, shipping orders, organizing readings, and thinking of other good stuff we ought to do. If you want to be involved, send a note to editor@consentporn.com. Tell us a bit about your background and what areas you’re most interested in helping with. Prior experience isn’t necessary, but we’ll have to see what help we can use where.

If you want to stay up to date with the project, you can also join our mailing list! Go to consentporn.com and look at the bottom right.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

One of our challenges will be getting enough high-quality submissions to fill our anthology. That's one reason we're starting to accept submissions as soon as we launch this project. It's also a reason we're making sure to pay our writers, because that's a great way to attract interest and reward talent. And it's a reason we'll be working hard to spread the word wide and far about this, so writers all over will hear about it and have a chance to send in their work.

If we do a good job facing that challenge, though, the next challenge will be choosing what stories to include. We'll need to put together a group of people to read through all our submissions and pick what stands out, and then we'll want to think about having a diversity of voices and kinds of stories represented in the book too. We'll have to make decisions about what to publish, and we're sure some of them will be tough.

Though we're building a team of folks that have experience designing books, working in publishing, and putting out magazines, we don't have anyone on the team yet who has actually seen a book through the printing process. We may be able to bring someone on board who knows this ground a little better, but it might be new terriority for us. We do have some friends who've done it, though, so we're trusting we can get some good advice out of them.
