My website made number 77 on Molly's Top 100 Sex Blogs list for 2022.
I wasn't on the list in 2021 and I was number 88 in 2020 so 77 is an improvement.
There are a lot of brilliant sex blogs on the list. Their excellent work and the list itself are inspiration for me to work hard on my own blog in 2023.
Without further ado,
Here is the full list.

Please nominate my blog for Molly's Top 100 Sex Blogs 2023.
Looking at how the scores are calculated has given me some ideas for improvements I will make to my own blog.
Blog roll –
I don't currently have a blog roll. I do have some favourite blogs in mind that I'd love to recommend. Adding a blog roll is first on my to do list.
I do have a search field. I think it's currently just using the standard wordpress search algorithm but I have a paid account for SearchWP which I use for sexworkersear.ch. Time to look into whether it's worth replacing the wordpress search field with a SearchWP field for improved accuracy of results.
I have Blog Topics and Interests in the sidebar which link to categories and tags. I'll look at some other blogs to see how these are presented and whether I should change how these appear.
Social Media –
I have twitter, instagram, reddit, fetlife all linked on my blog and all of them link back to my website. I'm fairly active on all of them. Always looking for new ideas how to optimise my approach to social media. I'll continue trying to find new and improved social media strategies in 2023.
Is it mobile responsive –
Related or random posts –
Kind of. The Categories and Tags link to related posts. Having the titles and featured images of those posts appear in the sidebar would be a nice idea. I'll look into it.
Recent comments –
I get very few comments. I'd love it if more people would comment. I'll make that a goal for 2023 to figure out what I need to do to get more readers to engage via comments. Commenting on other people's blogs more seems like a good place to start. I always comment on a few of the Elust contributors posts every month. I'll make it a resolution to comment on at least every blog post from Elust that does the Elust re-post.
Easy to navigate –
Yes. I think so.
Easy to read –
All ok I think.
Overall look –
I've put a lot of time and effort into the look of my site. I love it as is. No immediate plans to redesign.
He/him. I have my pronouns in my tagline which appears at the top of every page and in my About.
Are you using images ethically?
Yes. I have permission from the owners of all images used on my site except for some meme images which were created with the intention that they be freely used and some stock images.
Is the content original?
Yes. The only re-posted content is Elust but I add my own comments next to each link to make the content unique so it's more appealing to readers and for SEO.
Spelling, grammar, use of English-
Perfect, I hope!
Is there a variety of content? –
I do my best to present a variety of content whilst still maintaining an identifiable style or voice that represents my own personality.
An authors voice –
As above. I get a lot of compliments from clients and other sex workers saying that my blog posts always give the impression that I'm having a lot of fun. I am! I'm always delighted when people pick up on this. Above all, sex should be fun. When it isn't, I'll do something else.
Is your content sex positive? -
I'd be horrified if, in any way, it wasn't.
Does the content feel honest/real/authentic –
Nobody has ever accused me of being anything but real. Feel the realness!
24 blog posts per year-
That's only 2 per month. Easy. For 2023 I'll aim to double this. 1 per week. There are others on the list with truly prodigious outputs of blog posts. I don't aspire to being the most prolific publisher on the list but 1 per week seems achievable.
My favourite sex blogs for 2022 in no particular order are =
A Leap of Faith The Barefoot Sub consistently posts candid, entertaining and erotic accounts of her experiences as a submissive. I'm inspired by the sheer volume of blog posts Barefoot produces. Every few days there's more quality content. By far the best Elust contributor in terms of sending in posts, re-posting the editions, adding her own comments next to the links in the re-posts and commenting on other people's blogs. If you want to know how to Sex Blog, look no further. This is the way.
Witch of the Wands My favourite sex toy review site. Informative, entertaining, honest reviews. A clear commitment to authenticity, ethics and inclusivity. Witch of the Wands is the founder of The Alliance of Independent Sex Toy Testers. A network of passionate bloggers upholding a shared standard of ethical review conduct. I haven't published enough reviews to qualify as a member yet (16). But as soon as I have enough reviews on my blog, I will apply to join.
Sandra Masseuse, Escort, Elust contributor, Gangbang and Bukkake enthusiast. Highly recommended blog and if you're ever in London, contact her and arrange to meet.
Hellga The Lady in Latex. Another Elust contributor who always re-posts and always includes unique, thoughtful comments next to each link. A newcomer to sex blogging but already showing flair and talent for writing, self promotion, co-promotion and collaboration.
Dancer in Chains I read every instalment of Moon Feather as they were published and as soon as the completed book was available on amazon, I immediately ordered. I'm a big fan.
If you're in the mood for the greatest time travelling Wild West erotic fiction ever written,
Pieces of Jade Kinky, poly, lusty, wordy. A valued Elust contributor.
Lucy Ashwood My favourite author of paranormal erotica and supernatural smut. One of my regular clients is into bondage and has become addicted to Going to the Ball after finding it via Elust on my blog.
History of BDSM Researcher of the fascinating field of consensual sadomasochism and my go to reviewer of BDSM themed films.
Mistress Victory A Wild and Wonderful World of Erotic BDSM. Her blog is unique and wondrous. I love the rhyming couplets. She has the most hypnotic voice. Listen to her Bedtime Stories and Just a Little torture podcasts. Perfection.
Miss Lilly Watson has resolved to have
MORE THREESOMES! in 2023.
I'd be delighted if we can do some more duos together. Our recent threesome was one for the ages.
Sardax Three decades of Femdom artwork. A gallery of a who's who of the best of the best Pro Dommes.
Dirk Hooper Illustrious illustrator combining pop surrealism, fine art, fetish and kink expertise.
