The fabulous Molly from Molly’s Daily Kiss (with whom I did a really fun interview a while ago) does a gazillion hours of work to compile her annual Top 100 Sex Blogs list from those that readers nominate as their favourites.
And shock of shockers, I am in the top spot this year! The. Top. Spot!!!
I’m so completely delighted and honoured. I feel like I should give a speech.
I’d like to thank all of you, my amazing readers, for sticking with me, for reading and commenting, and for helping to create this positive little F/m corner of the internet with me. Without your presence, I’d just be writing into the void and it makes such a huge difference to me to know that there are ‘people like me’ out there. I think the ‘me too’s are what make us all feel a little less isolated, and even if you are silent, I see you.
I’m especially thankful for your support when I’ve evolved into that special breed of sex blogger who isn’t having any goddamn sex! Kind of feel like I’m here under false pretences to be honest.
BUT I’LL STILL TOTALLY TAKE IT!
After the jump is the full Top 100 list for your exploration and enjoyment. I’m sure you will recognise quite a few of your favourites (I mean, my American boyfriend, DualDrew, is at number 5 (so proud!)), and it’s such a great way to discover fabulous new blogs.
I will be absolutely honest with you here when I reordered the list after scoring all the sites I was not in the least bit surprised to find Ferns at the top. She was No.10 on the list last year but in my opinion her rise to the number one spot is well deserved. She has been producing fantastic content for 8+ years and her writing continues to go from strength to strength. To be quite frank not many of us can say that. Even though her kink and mine are the direct opposite of one another her exceptional work always captures my attention and I think that is a huge testament to her writing which is frank, raw, gritty, intelligent and sexy as fuck. I hope you will all join me in congratulating her on the No.1 spot.

As I said last year Lilly is all the things you want in a sex toy reviewer; honest, smart, dedicated, and knowledgeable. Like Ferns she too has been blogging for 8+ years and the quality, quantity and variety of her content is exceptional. If you look back through her blog you will see that she has truly evolved over the years into the blogger she is now who has a genuine passion for what she does and I think that shines through in her work.

I have long been a fan of Rebel’s blog, after all we share a very similar relationship dynamic and so her writing often speaks directly to me but this year she seems to have really blossomed. Her blog is well designed, it looks fantastic and is easy to navigate and both the quantity and quality of her writing is excellent, perhaps even more so when you consider that English is not her first language.

4. Malin James
Malin is an extraordinary, talented writer in my opinion. Her fiction continues to be some of the best around, in fact I would go so far as to say that the erotic fiction on her blog is the best on this list. However she is not just a fiction writer, far from it in fact, her non fiction writing shows a highly self aware woman who is a deep and intelligent thinker.

Drew’s blog was a new but happy discovery for me on last years list and one I have continued to visit regularly since then. He has a really engaging writing style that draws you in. His kink is pretty much not my kink and yet his writing, a bit like Ferns makes that absolutely irrelevant to me as the reader. Yep, consider me hooked.

One of my favourite things about compiling this list is finding new blogs to read and when they are as good this one that discovery is even more delicious. I really like her blunt forthright style and the way she writes about things in such an open and honest manner. I have never met this person before but I already find myself rooting for her in her new(ish) relationship. That is the mark of a good blog in my opinion.

Another happy discovery of mine from last years list that has continued to go from strength to strength this year. The design and functionality of his blog is absolutely excellent and I really do like the ‘at a glance summery’ in the form of the little dial that he uses on all his reviews. He is a skilled and thoughtful writer and his blog is always a pleasure to read.

Artist, Photography and author, Tabitha is one very talented lady and as such totally deserves this spot on the list. Her content whilst hugely varied is always of a high standard. She really is one kick arse writer when it comes to short flash fiction and her mixture of drawings and photography create a blog with a really strong visual aspect.

Nlikes pens a blog that is raw, frank and apologetically himself. His writing comes from a place of honest self awareness and as a result at times can be a challenging read but in my opinion that is exactly what makes this blog such a great one. This is a sex blog with a capital S!

Mrs Fever’s blog is yet another one that I discovered from compiling last years list and damn can this woman write. Her blog is intelligent, sassy, sexy and passionate. She has a style and way with words that just draws you in and in my experience will turn you on even if her kink is not your kink. That is the mark of a great writer.

So awesome and well deserved!
Awesome and well deserved!
*smile* So awesome you wanted to say it twice? Thank you so much (you know I could delete the extra one, BUT I’M NOT GOING TO!).
You couldn’t just quietly delete evidence of my ineptitude? No?! Well, of course not. It’s still awesome and well deserved.
Thanks Don *smile*. Nice suits, by the way!
You know, awesome is as awesome does. I’m just surprised that it didn’t come sooner. Congratulations, and well done! *Standing Ovation*
*takes a bow* Thank you!
Always enjoy reading your blog – even though I’m not much of a comment leaving person!
In typical uncouth Australian style… aussie aussie aussie, oi oi oi??
*smile* Well you left a comment just now, so thank you for it AND the cheer.
Good stuff Ferns :) Congrats
I have always been of the opinion that you don’t actually have to be having sex to be a great sex blogger…. you have proved me right!
Thanks so much Molly, I really appreciate that!
Congratulations!!! You are my top choice and the blog I miss the most when silent for a bit.
Thanks greg. I’m silent wayyy too much these days. Must work on that!
So so so so so well deserved (and yes, that’s a lot of so’s).
I like all the so’s very much, thank you *smile*.
So many congrats – you most definitely deserve the recognition! Your writing (both new and older) is always well worth reading :)
Thanks Dee. I feel like I started off weakly, got strong in the middle there, and have slipped again. I really appreciate your kind compliment.
Still submitting to sumi. Still learning and embracing. Still so thankful for your blog, help, time and wisdom. No1 is so so well deserved let alone for your writing. Your gifts are so so precious to us all. Thank you. Alan xx
Thanks so much Alan. So pleased to hear that your relationship is going swimmingly: may it long continue *smile*.
Congratulations! Top sex blogger, without any sex, defeating all those who are getting it (or at least claim to be)! Now that is some feat! Just goes to show that it is all about the mind. Bit sad though, why, you even get a new whip but noone to practice on. Someone ought to offer!
I know right?! I win a gold flogger…!! (actually, I think it’s yellow but who looks a gift flogger in the… whatever?!)
And thank you.
