I’ve been asking for submissions to TNaV for awhile now and have gotten some great posts. From the very beginning, I felt bad for not being able to compensate the bloggers as much as I wanted to. Being a blogger myself, I understand that our work has worth.

I also decided that all commissions I make from this site will be donated to Planned Parenthood. Not only because it’s for a great cause but I didn’t want bloggers contributing content that might lead to me making commissions. I also thought more bloggers would like to get behind this project if it ultimately benefited Planned Parenthood.

Still, the compensation I offered was really more a gesture of goodwill and I wanted to do more. So, I’ve set about asking the affiliates I feature on this site if they would like to sponsor guest posts by compensating the author with a $25 gift card. So far I’ve asked two companies and I’m thrilled that they said, yes! PeepShow Toys and Tantus have agreed to sponsor posts.

I’d like to get all the companies on board, that way each company only sponsors a post about every 5 months or so. Since I’m just launching this project, the first contributor would get their choice between a PeepShow Toys or Tantus gift card but going forward, each contributor would get a gift card from whichever company was next on the list (if more join). I do regret that I can’t make this retroactive for the folks who’ve already submitted posts. I hope ya’ll understand. But you’re more than welcome to submit content from this point on and get the gift card.

So pitch me your ideas! I’d love to feature educational posts, opinion pieces or, personal experiences about anything related to having a uterus, ovaries, vagina, vulva and all those things that make us awesome.

Update: Vibrant has agreed to sponsor posts, along with PeepShow Toys and Tantus, with a $25 gift card to the author!

Perhaps you’ve seen the notice in my left sidebar or saw me tweeting about it but if not, I’d like to formally announce my plans for this site.

This site started out as sort of joke between sex bloggers, while also being educational. A few posts were published and then the site went dead for over a year, until I had an idea. What if other bloggers contributed content to the site? I don’t expect bloggers to work for free and I do offer a payment but it’s more a gesture of goodwill than anything else. I can’t afford a lot.

I’ve been openly asking on Twitter for folks to contribute articles and so far, I have gotten several really great posts. I’m hoping many more bloggers join in because I have bigger plans for this blog.

I intend to donate 100% of the commissions made through the links and banners on this blog. I know the notice in the sidebar says “a portion” and I need to change that (fixed) because I’ve decided that all of it should go to Planned Parenthood.

The banners and links on this blog are set up in a way that I can track the commissions that come from this site rather than my review site. Not all affiliate platforms make this an easy task so, I’m only adding the companies that use platforms that allow for easy tracking. I made one exception for PeepShow Toys and just created a separate account since their affiliate program doesn’t allow me to generate reports that show commissions earned from links with a tracking code.

My plan is, at the end of next year, I’ll see how much this blog has earned and I’ll donate it directly to Planned Parenthood… in Mike Pence’s name of course, even if he is VP. I’ll post a screen shot as proof of the donation. I’m nothing if not honest so believe me when I say, I won’t be keeping the money for myself.

How can you help? Well, if you’re shopping for sex toys or lube, you can clear your cookies, click on my banners and links and make your purchases. Clearing cookies ensures that this blog gets the commission. There is no additional cost to you.

You can also help by donating your time toward writing posts. As I said, there is a small payment but your content will be going toward the greater good. There are so many stories to be told and I don’t feel qualified to tell them all.

What sort of things can you write about? Anything related to vulvas, uteruses, vaginas, and all manner of women’s issues. Posts can be opinion pieces, educational, or personal experiences.

So, that pretty much sums it up. I would love to see this blog become a community resource and generate significant earnings to donate to Planned Parenthood. If you want to write something, just contact me.
