*This contest is open to everyone, however, the submissions must be gay male themed.
After we wrapped up our Virtual Pride Month celebrations and our “Dear Younger Queer Self” contest, we realized that our gay male erotica category should use some beefing up to better represent our diversity. That’s where you beefcakes come in!
We’ve learned from our previous contests that our readers are amazing writers, and we want to display your work. Not only do you win your choice of a LELO product, you also have the opportunity for a continued collaboration with Volonte… and it’s paid!
Here are the rules:
- Write a short erotic story about your wildest gay male fantasy (or steamy real life story), whether that be solo, partnered, grouped, with toys or exploring your favorite kink. We are open-minded when it comes to content, as long as it is arousing and tasteful. Stories must be a minimum of 1,000 words and a maximum of 2,000 words. Submissions above the word maximum will be excluded by default.
- Submit your stories (unlimited entries) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Gay Erotica Contest. Stories can be submitted directly in the email or as an attachment.
- Your submission automatically enters you onto our mailing list so that we can announce the winners through a newsletter. Once the 3 winners are selected, we will reach out to you privately on email to select your prize and discuss future collaborations. You have up until August 31 to submit your stories, but please note that we might extend this window. We will keep this article updated, so check back in.
For the first time ever, LELO is also offering ongoing collaboration with the winners! So not only do you get a luxury sex toy of your choosing, you also get to continue writing erotic for Volonte for compensation! 🤑 Your story will also most likely be recorded for our new audio erotica series as well.
*Please note that we typically receive a large amount of entries for our writing contest, so we will not be able to respond to each and every entry, however we will be publishing all of our finalist stories besides the 3 winners! All the finalists will be contacted prior to publishing to discuss author info (anonymous and pseudonyms perfectly okay).
If you’re in need of some inspo, check out the tone and heat that the following stories bring:
We can’t wait to read your submissions. Good luck!
