I wasn’t going to do a 2013 Year in Review kind of roundup, but I started thinking about the sex blogs and websites that I check out on a regular basis. I like them all for different reasons, but for the most part they’re informative, intelligent, well-written, updated frequently, and most of all, sex-positive.
As much as I support anyone who puts in the effort to blog about sex for the love of it, I’ve included a few websites with paid contributors/staff because the content is that good and valuable.
And, yes, paring my list to 14 was a real challenge. You’ll find some of my other favorites that I follow in my blogroll at the bottom right of the page.
In alphabetical order, here are my recommendations for the 14 Sex Blogs and Websites to Follow in 2014 …
Condom Depot Information Center The folks at Condom Depot have the biggestselection of condoms and lube that I’ve seen anywhere and proof that the drug store ain’t no place to buy condoms. They do a hell of a job recommending styles, proper function, and fit. They also do a hell of a job reporting topics on safe sex, sexual health, as well as some of the craziest things you need to know about sex. After all, you can’t have safe sex unless you are credibly informed.

Erotic Scribes If there was a New York Times version of sex news, Erotic Scribes would be it. It’s packed with well-written articles and commentaries about the latest topics and trends in sex today. Although it bills itself as a publication written by and for women, I’m sure that men who also think with the head on the top of their bodies will enjoy the articles, too. I also like that they make their articles easy to send to Kindle.
Fuckblogging I love how Venice and Ryan have opened up the most intimate sides of their sexual experiences, fantasies and observations with others in stories, photos and videos. They blog with true senses of honesty about the good, not-so-good and funny sides of their sex lives as a married couple. They also have some favorite blogs of their own you’ll want to check out.

Kinkly Move over Cosmo! This is the place to get real, credible and uncensored sex tips and information on all things mild to wild and stuff that you should just know. I love their Position Playlist and their Term of the Day in case there’s a word or term you’ve heard but were too embarrassed to ask anyone what it means. Be sure to check out their lists of the Top 100 Sexblogging Superheroes of 2013 (I’m No. 9!) and top sex blogs (I’m listed there, too!) for more good reads. They’re well-rounded lists of every imaginable genre, kink and fetish.

Lady Cheeky I have the biggest girl crush on Elle Chase (Lady Cheeky) since she’s a woman like me – someone who didn’t have her sexual awakening until she was well into her adult years and took off with it like a marathon runner. Her Tumblr blog has one the best and most extensive collections of porn photos on the ‘Net. Be sure to check out her companion blog, Smut for Smarties, too!

Little Shop of O’s Full disclosure: I am paid by Little Shop of O’s to write content for its website (my first post just went up this week, Sex in the Shower: Clean, Dirty and Safe Fun and sponsored posts on my blog (check out the first one on Jan. 20), but that’s not why I’m recommending this site. Before I started working with them, I was already liking what they were doing with their posts on sex toys, sex tips, articles and videos about sex, and their collection of free erotica (two of my stories are included, Taking Flight, Taking Rides and We’ll Have What They’re Having). I also like their O’s Exposed videos in which they talk to people on the street about things like role playing and their bedpost confessions. It’s the best stuff I’ve watched since HBO’s Real Sex. And oh, yeah, they have a massive selection of sex toys, lingerie and other goodies.

Maxime Durocher I’ve never been to Montreal or hired a male escort, but Maxime Durocher is definitely one of the most attractive (check out his Photos page for proof!) charming, classy and sexy men with whom a woman can spend time with in that fair city. Check out The Lounge on his site where you’ll find his blog posts on sex and sex work, his frank and straight-up Q&A section on sex from a man’s point of view, and his movie reviews.
Polkadotsi Polkadotsi is a smart, savvy and sexy online magazine for women that’s updated daily with articles on boudoir basics , relationships, knowing your sexual health and body, and sex toy reviews. It’s as entertaining as it is informative. I haven’t been underwhelmed yet.

The Redhead Bedhead Sex writer, educator and adult retail consultant Jo Ellen is on a mission to save the world from mediocre sex, and she certainly does that in her blog!

Sex in Words Jon Pressick is my go-to guy for the latest articles about sex in the news. He also has some great regular features on sex bloggers, sex education, and his Muse Mondays, erotic stories inspired by erotic photography, (There’s a story, Out of the Cold, that was inspired by a photo, Snowy Afterglow, from my blog.) And be sure to check out his #dailysexdiscussion topics on Twitter.
Walker Thornton Although I’m not eligible for my AARP card yet, I can assure you by proxy that your sex life doesn’t retire once you get close to or hit retirement age. I love how Walker Thornton champions that fact with intelligence, grace, class and savvy. Quite frankly, a lot of what she writes about applies to younger women, too. She’s also has another blog, The Diva of Dating, and is the sexpert at Better After 50.

William Quincy Belle William Quincy Belle’s blog isn’t purely a sex blog. He, like all of us, has lots of other interests – movies, music, politics and current affairs. However, he does write a lot about sex, and does so in very scholarly and poignant ways. He’s also a champion of sexually empowered women and a crusader against slut shaming and sex shaming.
