I’m a writer and teacher, and I lead workshops online and at colleges about using identity and power as tools for liberation. That’s a fancy way of saying that I write and study ways of becoming more myself. Through fields like feminism, queerness, trans & genderqueer genders, BDSM & kink, the transformative power of creative expression, and a variety of spiritual practices, I study myself and the places where I interact with the world.
After years of studying erotic embodiment, I’m part of a collaborative that founded Body Trust in 2014 with the mission to do more radically inclusive erotic embodiment work.
Currently, I travel during the fall and spring around to colleges and give workshops, and I run ecourses online regularly, including Submissive Playground an 8-week course jam-packed with curated content from D/s experts and guests, each of the 4 units has materials to consume, an experiment to do (on your own or with a dominant), and homework to complete.
About the site
In 2015, Sugarbutch is exploring a new structure. Thanks to Patreon, one post a week is funded! Each of 5 posts per month are chapters of an erotic novella, which will be compiled as an ebook the following month. This novella will be free for Patrons (sign up + support my work please!) and offered to everyone via the standard ebook formats.

The official (short) Mx. Sexsmith bio
Sinclair Sexsmith is “the best-known butch erotica writer whose kinky, groundbreaking stories have turned on countless queer women” (AfterEllen), who “is in all the books, wins all the awards, speaks at all the panels and readings, knows all the stuff, and writes for all the places” (Autostraddle). Their short story collection, Sweet & Rough: Queer Kink Erotica, was a 2016 finalist for the Lambda Literary Award. Sinclair leads the 8-week online ecourse Submissive Playground (submissiveplayground.com) annually, where there is no wrong way to be a sub. They identify as a white non-binary butch dominant, a survivor and an introvert, and use the pronouns they, them, theirs, themself.
