"FAKING OUT - a zine about orgasms and (not) keeping them real" is looking for submissions!

Fake orgasms can be a tool, especially for women, to get out of situations they start to feel uncomfortable in. But what else can they be? How do YOU feel about the possibility of faking orgasms? What are your experiences with it? Have you ever faked orgasms yourself? Why? How long did it take you to find out your partner was faking it all this time?

Tell your stories of up to 500 words!
Please send them to spleggzines@gmail.com
Deadline: February 28th
(Submissions can be anonymous)

You don't have anything to say about this topic but are interested in the zine and want to know when it's out and available? Send an email to spleggzines@gmail.com to be entered the "Faking out"-mailing list (don't worry: no spam, just zine info!)
