Blogger spotlight: Carly from Dildo or Dildon’t

Summer 100 Sex blogger challenge
Today I interview Carly from the awesome blog Dildo or Dildon’t. Carly has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is not afraid to share it all. Let’s hear it from Carly.

What made you decide to start a sex blog?

I’ve been working at a sex shop for four years, and was doing sex ed workshops for two years before that. I always wanted to start a blog because I also love to write and teach. When I was shortly unemployed at the beginning of this year it gave me the free time I needed to really get started.

What, if anything, would you like your blog to achieve?

I hope that I help queer, POC of size and others. But basically my voice is not one normally heard in the sex ed community and I feel like representation is important so I try to be a resource for people like me and fellow sex workers.

How much do you protect your anonymity as a sex blogger or are you quite open about writing a sex blog? And if the latter, what kind of reactions have you received?

I don’t at all, my sexuality career is a public one. My friends and family all know what I do for work and support my career and my blog. I hope I get my name out there and that people eventually recognize me in public as that lady with the sex toys tattoos always recommending lube!

If readers would read only one post from your blog, which one would you recommend (i.e. which is your favourite/most important blog post)?

It would be this post. I think most people who don’t know much about sex toys know even less about how important lube is, or the different types. Lube will change your life.

Do you have any advice for other sex bloggers?

Do lots of research but at the end of the day trust your gut. Even if everyone says something you love is silly, know there will be other people our there that agree with you and needed to hear what you have to say.

And finally, why have you decided to join Summer 100 Sex Bloggers Challenge and are you really going to write 100 posts?

I already fell behind on the 100 posts, but this challenge gives me motivation to get posts done quicker. I have like 50 ideas written down to write so it definitely helped get the creative juices flowing.
