Shedoesthecity has partnered with We-Vibe® to host Arouse: Erotica Writing Contest, and you should enter! Writing about sex, love, and intimacy is a fun and pleasureful act, and if you enter our Arouse Erotica Writing Contest, you could also win $500, plus a bunch of extremely hot prizes. 

If you aren’t sure where to begin, or have never tried your hand at erotica before, Shedoesthecity’s Editor-in-Chief Jen McNeely, will be hosting three ninety-minute closed-door erotic writing workshops. And they’re totally free! 

This is a class that welcomes all who identify as women and writers of all levels. Don’t be intimidated if you’ve never published a piece before!  

 Goals of the workshop:

  • Provide tools and ideas to help participants start writing about sex and intimacy
  • Work through creative exercises to help students map out their story
  • Explore what makes good erotica
  • Enjoy an evening with an intimate group of women, and share some laughs while talking and writing about sex

Each workshop will have a maximum of twelve students, so reserve your spot now by emailing
