Post to National Sexlife Journal
Create a profile which can be your name or a pen name.  That name will show as the byline in the post and automatically link to your profile.

Log on to your profile
Go to the front page of the site; click on the “Sexlife Journal” link on the left sidebar
Click on “add blog post” and follow the instructions on the submission page.

The Title
If  your post is a product review title it:
Playthings: [product name here}
Otherwise, choose whatever title fits.

Images
All submissions must include a photo. Try to find photos that are relevant to your post. They don’t have to be sexy or even sex related but it helps. Location specific posts can use cityscapes or landscapes.

We respect copyrights.  The photo you upload must fall into one of these three categories:
1) You own or created the image yourself.

2) The image falls under fair use.
i.e. image is the cover, event poster, or logo of the subject of your article: eg. A story on the CBC and sex could have the CBC’s logo

3) The photographer has granted license to the public to use it.
There are two main sources of such photos:
a) WikiCommons
b) Flikr
c) Stock.Exchg

Use the search terms for the image you seek.
Check that the photographer of the photo you find has granted public use. Most photographers doing that  require that the photographer be credited. You can do that by copying the link to the photographer and inserting that link in the photo credit box on our  post page.
