With this blog, I tried to do a thing. Yes, it started out as kind of a joke between sex bloggers but I hoped it would turn into something educational, where others might contribute and where I would not profit from the affiliate links. I didn’t think it was right for me to keep the commissions made from this blog with other people contributing content. So my plan was to donate all commissions made from links on this blog to Planned Parenthood… in Vice President Pence’s name.
With that in mind, I finally got around to checking out the data and since its inception in October of 2015, this blog has made…. wait for it… wait for it… ZERO DOLLARS! Seriously you all, I’m not complaining, I meant that to be funny. I didn’t expect to see much because this blog really hasn’t gotten a lot of traffic. I think perhaps, my hopes for what I planned to create were a bit too high?
Some folks have contributed great content and I am thrilled that they did. I didn’t want anyone to submit content for free so I asked several of my affiliate companies if they would give a $25 gift certificate to anyone who did contribute. Some of them thought it was a great idea and agreed. That offer still stands if anyone is interested, just sayin’.
Anyway, that was a long ramble for me to get to this point but I felt I had to give the back-story. I don’t care that TNaV hasn’t made any money for me to donate. I donated anyway. In Mike Pence’s name. So he’ll get the acknowledgment card… or at least, an intern will probably get it.
I support Planned Parenthood and everything they do. All of it. All of the services they provide are important and I, to put it quite frankly, think it’s really fucking shitty how they’ve been under attack in recent years – all for political gain. Seems like Planned Parenthood’s existence and their federal funding was never much of an issue in the past. Maybe I just wasn’t tuned in but I don’t remember it being such a controversial subject before.
If you can, I encourage you to donate too… in Mike Pence’s name, of course:
Vice President Pence
1650 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20502
Lest you think I came up with this awesome idea of donating in that asshole’s name, I do admit, I did not come up with it. Many have donated in his name. In fact, Mila Kunis donates monthly, sending a note each time. I think that’s pretty damn cool.
So, donate if you can. You can also purchase sex toys and lube through the links of the retailers in the left sidebar (clear your cookies, please) and I PROMISE, I’m not here to keep that money. You have to use those links though. That way, I’ll know the commissions came from this blog.
Apparently this is what the acknowledgment card looks like. I’m giving credit to where I found it but don’t go there, it’s an anti-choice site.
