Hello! I’m Sinclair

I’m a writer and teacher, and I lead workshops about using identity and power as tools for liberation. Through fields like feminism, queerness, trans & nonbinary 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.

I run ecourses online regularly through D/s Playground, and teach workshops in person at colleges, community centers, and sex toy stores. I also read my work aloud at poetry readings and in bookstores sometimes.

I’ve edited a few anthologies, including Erotix: Literary Journal of Somatics, Say Please: Lesbian BDSM Erotica, and multiple editions of the Best Lesbian Erotica series by Cleis press. My short story collection Sweet & Rough was published by Maverick Press in 2015 and was a finalist for the Lesbian Erotica Lambda Literary Award. More about my books here.

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.

    I have spent several hours over the past few days reading your posts. I must say they are incredible. I am a butch feminist and find your gender writings very interesting but who are we kidding, I have really become addicted to the smut. I would be so appreciative of a password if you should see fit.

    I'm not butch, and I'm not a lesbian, but your blog is AMAZING to me. You are a fabulous writer and you make me wish I was "traveling in your circle." I think that I will so enjoy reading your stories and exploring a side of me that has yet to be, um…"tapped" :0)

    Your insight is awesome, after having read some of your posts on the difficulty of explaining/defending the Butch-femme dynamic I have been better able to explain to my straight and even confused queer friends, as a Femme I am constantly asked why don't I just be with a man, it can be very difficult to explain that "yes i am a lesbian, but I want a big 'ol butch. I would love to have access to your protected entries, and I am looking forward to your future entries, thanks for sharing your insight with the queer community.

  13. Kate says:

  14. A. says:
