Call for Submissions: Faking Out Zine
Ever faked an orgasm? Has your partner ever faked? 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?
If you’ve ever ruminated on these issues, you may want to think about submitting to Faking Out: A Zine About Orgasms and (Not) Keeping Them Real. Send stories of fakery of up to 500 words to email@example.com.
Deadline: February 28th.

Deadline: March 21, 2014.
