Orgasm Zine!

Our understanding of women’s orgasms from pop culture and porn is very narrow. In talking with other women we realized that our experiences of orgasms are extremely diverse, and this allowed us to embrace our own unique experiences of pleasure without feeling pressure to conform to a norm. We all have different bodies, so it makes sense that we would have different orgasms. We are compiling a collection of personal stories about women's orgasms into a zine to hopefully help other women better understand that their pleasure is theirs alone and not what society says it should be. Please send us a submission of 500 words or less to orgzines@gmail.com. You are welcome to start with one or more of the following questions, but they are only meant to get your juices flowing! The deadline for submissions is Feb. 29, 2012. All submissions will be anonymous unless otherwise stated. We recognize that gender is fluid and performative, and that "woman" is an unstable category. We welcome submissions from anyone who has ever identified as a woman. Happy writing!

-Do you have orgasms?
-How would you describe your orgasms?
-Do you have different kinds of orgasms?
-Have your orgasms changed over time?
-Do you think your orgasms are normal or typical?
-How do you communicate with a partner about your orgasms?
-Have you ever faked an orgasm? Why?
-Tell the story of your first or best orgasm.
-Do you have difficulty reaching orgasm or did you in the past? What did you do about it?
-Are orgasms important to you?
-Do you experience orgasms differently while masturbating vs. with a partner?
-Do you have multiple orgasms, and if so, under what circumstances?

Feminist comp-zine Pandora Press is looking for submissions for its third issue!  The theme is TIME.

Here are some prompts/ideas for where you could go with this theme, though this list is far from exhaustive:

Waves of feminism: do you identify with a wave in particular? What do you think the 4th wave will look like?  Do you think that the notion of “waves of feminism” is a useful notion, or is it problematic?  Do you agree with the direction of modern feminism, and its fights/causes?
- A woman’s age/passage of life: What pressures are women under in particular with regards to age – what they should look like, what they should be doing (e.g. childbearing before the age of 35), what direction their life is supposed to take?  Are these realistic, or too constricting?
- The history of women/feminism: Are there any historical women or female activists that inspire you?  Any groundbreaking pre-feminist texts?  What was the world like for women before our era?
- The future for women/feminism: what would a feminist society look like?  How far do we have left before equality is reached?  Is it on the horizon?  Is it possible?
- Beauty standards: are women under pressure to avoid “looking their age”?  What qualities are associated with each decade of a woman’s life?  Are these fair?  What pressures are women under as each decade passes by?
- Young vs old feminists/women: are we being pitted against each other?  Or is the generational divide too wide to relate to each other?  Can we learn from each other?  Are there experiences that exclusively lie with one group, or are we not that different from each other?
- Issues that affect young people: sex education, virginity/chastity/purity myths, employment, higher education, etc.
Issues that affect older people: how is one’s age construed in our society?  Are there prejudices against older people?  Are old people ever favoured over young people (e.g. older men = authoritative figures), or are young people overwhelmingly favoured in society?
- Our current “time”/culture: What sucks about society’s treatment of women?  What will our future look like – utopia? Dystopia?  Will humanity be better off, or worse off, once our generation has passed away?  What will be our legacy?

The deadline for the winter issue is 20 FEBRUARY 2012.

Contributors must be from Wales!  Just email your ideas, questions, or submissions to pandorapresszine@gmail.com.  More info can be found at http://swanseafeministnetwork.wordpress.com/pandorapress.

Notes and Bolts, a zine exploring the intersections of food, music and art is looking for submissions for its 2nd issue. Got weird food stories, knowledge on the etymology of bizarre dishes and ingredients or have tales from the ether of culinary absurdity? Submit it for publication!

Deadline is February 18th.

p.s. please no recipes - just prose or essays.

I need a few quick blurbs on why you choose to be DIY. Nothing long, just one or two lines :)

Hi!  We produce, print and post monthly from Bali, Indonesia.  We feature work from artists all over the place: Canada, US, Belgium, Croatia, UK, Australia, Japan...and of course Indonesia!  

We'd love to include you in our 15th issue (or any upcoming issue)!  

We never have a theme, and there are no content restrictions.  We're here just to celebrate creativity in a lo-fi, fun way.  We take anything: photos, sketches, poems, stories, smears, scratches, rants, design work, poster art, etc.

Check out our previous issues on our blog.

Ya, we gotz a facebook too...

email: homelesslongitude@gmail.com

Thanks, 

Cole and Sabrina

I'm working on a zine about Sasquatch.  Movie reviews, personal stories, and legends.  If you have a story or art, I'd love to add it.  Message me.

Hey! I'm going to make a photobook based around love letters for my final major project at uni- if anyone has any love letters, old or new, then I'd love to get a copy or the original! It'll be completely annonymous of course :)
