And the Lezzy Goes To …

March 5, 2010  |  miscellany

The 2009 Lezzy Awards are over, and you all voted Sugarbutch as the Best Sex/Short Story/Erotica site for the second year in a row!

Thank you so much to all who voted and all who mentioned me in the promotions … I’m honored and humbled and promise to keep up the sex and erotica writing. I was a finalist along with my fabulous femme friend Essin’ Em and the lovely lady behind Scintillectual, who I don’t actually know, but I’m certainly going to be reading now. Both blogs are excellent. Jeez, I am so glad to see the abundance of butch and femme and genderqueer and queer sex blogs out there! Nearly four years ago, when I started Sugarbutch, there were very few queer sex blogs.

The competition was fierce this year, and the final winners are all heavy hitters. If you don’t read ‘em regularly, you’re missing out.

Best Entertainment: Dorothy Surrenders
Best Humor: Grace the Spot
Best Parenting: Up Popped a Fox
Best Engagement/Wedding: My Big Fat Gay Wedding
Best Feminist/Political: Feministing
Best Personal: Peaches & Coconuts
Best Out Later in Life: Making Space
Best Sex/Short Story/Erotica: Sugarbutch Chronicles

Sincere thanks to all who voted, thanks specifically to Kelly who runs The Lesbian Lifestyle. I continue to be amazed and touched by the support for and the recognition of this site and my efforts, thank you so much for being a part of these larger communities of queer, feminist, sex, and gender explorations.

  1. Thanks for the shout-out, Sinclair! Of course I was rooting for you to win Lifetime Achievement (with totally selfish motives, of course) but you are, of course, highly deserving. I have been reading Sugarbutch from the time, not all that long ago, that I started the, now defunct, FemmeBLT with Extra Mayo. My hope is that my partner (www.androgynonamous.wordpress.com) and I will be at the Sex Blogger's Calendar 2010 party this year and I will get to meet many of my fellow bloggers in person. You, I hope, being one of them. So, congratulations, and looking forward to hopefully being in good company again next year. :)

  2. Congratulations, you deserve it. :-)

  3. Yep, you definitely deserve it. Thanks for giving us so many great stories to swoon over!
