If you have a press release pertaining to adult industry news and you would like it to be published at CaraSutra, please contact me here. There is a fee for the publication of adult industry press releases which are advertorial in nature and intent.

If you are an erotic writer looking for promotion of your catalogue of books or a new release in particular, there are other ways I can help you. There is the Erotic Author Spotlight Series where you get a dedicated post about you and your published works, as well as the opportunity to have your books reviewed by the Pleasure Panel. There is no charge for either of these options for published erotic authors. Please contact me to find out how to arrange. On a similar note I run the Sex Blogger Spotlight Series for those with an adult related or sex toy review blog (only those without an associated sex toy shop or commercial business attached to it).

If there’s a subject relating to adult industry news you’d like to see me writing about here, do let me know and I will do my best to fit it into my writing schedule.

 

Can Bloggers Go to Trade Shows?

by Hella Rude
You are part of the modern press and you are therefore someone manufacturers want in attendance. You provide publicity for the brands while at the event by tweeting, blogging and even periscoping what’s going on and you’ll write honest things about their creations in exchange for products.

Make your piggy bank overflow with erotic crowdfunding for girls

Money. We often don’t have enough of it to do what we want, and most people’s lives include an element of trying to get more. Usually this is to cover at least the expense of everyday life, sometimes for a specific ambition or dream. That designer dress, the car that caught your eye on the forecourt, the deposit for your first home.

Sex News: Helping Hot Octopuss Develop New Women’s Sex Toys

Easter Monday is usually a day of relaxation and possibly regrets about how much chocolate has been consumed in a mere couple of days. Although there was a touch of the latter, I certainly didn’t have a relaxing morning last Monday – it was really quite exciting. I was on my way to London to meet up with Hot Octopuss, makers of the award winning Pulse sex toy, in order to form part of a consultation group for ongoing product development.

Staying at a hotel on Monday afternoon and night in the nearby Elstree area was heavenly, not least because of the sumptuous Laura Ashley Manor Hotel that my driver had selected for us to stay at. It really is a gorgeous hotel, set in plenty of well-tended woodland and with a rural charm which makes it seem even more of a treasure, being so close to London.

Event Report: Over 300 attendees enjoy Erotic World Book Day party celebrations

Erotic World Book Day was 5 March and as part of the celebrations there was an unashamedly spectacular party on Facebook. From 7pm UK time until well past midnight, every hour saw a new host share a wealth of tasty entertainment for the party attendees to enjoy.

Were you in attendance? Were you one of the 325 people who came to our party? You really should have been there. With shared excerpts from some of the top names in the world of erotic fiction, cyber cocktails, sexy chat, best-dressed competitions and over £1,500 of prizes to win, this really was an unmissable adult event.

Erotic World Book Day originator Emily Dubberley declared the party officially open at 7pm with an overview of the night’s festivities and the charity fundraising reasons behind the celebrations. We hoped to raise a substantial amount for sexual health and well-being charity Brook. As well as regular calls through the night for party folk to donate generously, either through the website link or text, there would be the official launch of our Erotic World Book Day charity anthology, An Intimate Education. 100% of the profit from sales of this erotic e-book would be (and still is being) donated to Brook.

Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Review by Cara Sutra

By Cara Sutra:
I don’t care what you think about Fifty Shades of Grey. By the time the Fifty Shades of Grey Movie was released in UK cinemas I was bouncing with excitement about going to see it. Not because I’m the world’s biggest 50 Shades fan. Not because I find Christian Grey knicker-gushingly hot. Because I wanted to be able to make up my own damn mind without being torn one way or the other by other people’s opinions.
