MSP Is Growing: We Have New Bloggers!

Three years ago, I started as a way to connect with my readers from the various publications for whom I write. As readership grew, so did the types of questions that would come in and the variety of topics that you asked me to write about. It’s exciting to see new people follow @mysexprofessor on Twitter and to interact with new and old commenters and question-writers from all over the world, who send in emails to talk about or ask about their sexual lives.

This year, thanks to advertiser support, we’ve had the chance to grow our team. There are so many exciting things happening that relate to sex and that I want you to know about but I’ve learned that I cannot do it all myself. In some ways, it’s a little sad to grow bigger. I’ve felt so closely identified with that I’m not sure what to make of so many people being on board. But mostly, it’s just exciting and invigorating. When we had a recent call-out for new bloggers, more than 40 talented people submitted their work. It was an incredible group of people – grad students, undergraduate students, magazine writers and other journalists, sex bloggers, sex workers, sex educators, health educators, all sorts of interesting women and men.

From this group, we selected a core group of people who will be starting to write for MSP over the next week or two. Most but not all of them live in the US. Most but not all of them are women. (Neither is by design). Every single one of them is smart, interesting and certain to provide you with a glimpse of something unique, curious or fascinating about the world of sex.

So what will I be doing? I’m not going anywhere. I will still be around and would like to focus more of my time answering your sex questions. We will, however, see a few changes to the site (less of me and more of the bloggers) as I continue to write and take on more of an editorial role.

I am thrilled – truly thrilled – about what lies ahead for I hope you will welcome our new blogging team with welcome arms and stick with us, give us feedback in the comments, let us know what is working and what is not, and send in suggestions for blog posts if you hear of interesting news items, sex-related products or if you snap an incredible photo somewhere along your journey and think it should be shared on MSP.

I want you all to have better, more informed, more pleasurable and inspiring sex lives. Thanks for giving me, and now us, the opportunity to try to help you get there.
