Where To Get It

“The thing I keep thinking as I read Sinclair Sexsmith’s [new book] Sweet & Rough is: this is erotica written by someone who has had a LOT of sex.” —Tina Horn, Why Are People Into That?! Podcast

Sweet & Rough has been a long time coming. For years, Sinclair Sexsmith immortalized their hottest sexual adventures as erotic stories on Sugarbutch Chronicles, earning a reputation as the Internet’s queer Casanova. Writing on BDSM, polyamory, butch/femme (and occasionally my personal favorite, butch/butch) desire, Sexsmith authored the world’s largest archive of kinky, queer erotica from a genderqueer, masculine of center perspective. Now edited for our eBook and paperback reading pleasure, Sweet & Rough: Queer Smut is a rare gift. You’ll want to take this one to bed.”
—Jiz Lee, genderqueer porn star

Sweet & Rough:
Sixteen Stories of Queer Smut

Sweet and Rough is the perfect title for this collection of raw, queer, kinky and passionate erotica that will appeal to smut connoisseurs as well as new readers looking for something hot and titillating to keep them up at night.”
—Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of The Big Book of Orgasms

Sweet, sensual adoration and dirty, rough sex meet in this anthology of queer smut penned by Top Sex Blogger Sinclair Sexsmith. The complete collection includes sixteen of Sinclair’s best queer erotica short stories, full of dapper dates, femmes in pretty dresses, flogging, bondage, flirting on the subway, bold moves, and (of course) strap-ons. From ongoing lovers to one-night stands, the kinky queer butch top protagonist delivers heart and dominance, over and over.

“There are very few erotic writers who consistently capture my attention and admiration. John Preston did. So does Carol Queen. And I’ve added Sinclair Sexsmith to that list.” —Dr. Charlie Glickman, Make Sex Easy

megallen-smSINCLAIR SEXSMITH is the “kinky queer butch top” behind Sugarbutch Chronicles, an award-winning online personal erotic writing project since 2006. They have contributed to more than twenty erotica and gender theory anthologies, edited Say Please: Lesbian BDSM Erotica, and guest edited Best Lesbian Erotica 2012. Their previous publications include Fervor: Poems from the East Village, two more chapbooks of poetry, and one spoken word album. Sinclair is a feminist dominant, identity puzzler, poet, sacred intimate, and strap-on expert, and they use the pronouns they/them/their/themself as a way to vocalize the in-between gender space they occupy. They live in Oakland, California with their family.

“Sinclair Sexsmith’s writing is a surefire panty-wetter.” —Erika Moen, Oh Joy, Sex Toy
