I’ve Decided to Become a Prostitute!

A literary prostitute, that is. Allow me to explain…

As some of you have probably already noticed, I’m in the process of a transformation of sorts. I’m changing my screen name from DirtyMinedMom to DirtyMindedMinx. I’ve decided to do this for two reasons, one practical and one personal.

I’ve received several compliments over the years for my writing that included the suggestion that I write for the commercial erotica market. About a year ago, I began actually thinking about trying it. Then didn’t do anything about it. A few months ago I began actually looking into what it would entail. It’s a bit daunting, but I decided that once the kids were back in school that I would use some of the extra time I would have during the day to make an attempt.

I was gearing up to write something I could publish as an eBook on Amazon and/or Smashwords, then I stumbled across an interesting market I hadn’t considered before: writing custom erotic stories. This idea really appealed to me. I’ve had a lot of readers ask for stories with specific plots or characters, but I generally made it a policy not to take on these kinds of projects. For one, I have a huge backlog of ideas of my own that I want to write, and for two, I wasn’t sure I could do someone else’s story idea justice.

After some experimentation, I learned that my second objection wasn’t a problem. And as far as the first issue goes, if I was going to be writing commercially anyway I figured I might as well bring someone else’s vision to the page along the way. With that in mind, I came up with a new plan.

I’m going to offer my services as an erotic writer for hire. I will take your desired premise, plot, characters, fetishes, settings, or situations and turn them into a story custom made just for you. Then, depending on the deal you choose, I will publish the story for the general public (changing any personal details that may have been incorporated into the story, of course). I think this approach will give me an opportunity to not only fulfill a need for many of my devoted readers, but it will also provide me with a library of diverse works to offer as a “professional” writer.

One of the things I discovered during my research is that almost all eBook publishers require characters to be 18 or over, and none that I could find were (according to their terms of service) okay with incest or “pseudo-incest.” This, obviously, presents a problem for me and eliminates the majority of the personal stories I’ve written or plan to write. This means that the stories I’m most interested in custom writing will not violate these restrictions. Which brings us back around to my name change.

Initially, I’m only intending to “advertise” my custom story services here at my blog. I want my loyal friends to have first whack at this opportunity, so to speak. When (or if) I open myself up to a wider audience for my custom story services, I don’t want to be pigeon-holed by my screen name, which has something of an incesty vibe. DirtyMindedMinx is less limiting while still being essentially accurate. Maybe when I hit 40 I’ll have to change it to DirtyMindedMature, but I don’t have to start worrying about that for a few years yet!

I’m still sorting out the details of how my new underground career as an official smut peddler will work, and I’ll do another post soon on the specifics of it all. Just to give you an idea, I’m settling in on rates that range from $5 to $15 per page (~600 words) depending on the genre (publishable vs. non-publishable) and who retains the rights. Just to give you an idea, most chapters of Open Door Policy run about 10 pages. I’m also considering rates for people who want to collaborate, or want me to edit and proofread their own erotic story. I’m also toying with the odd idea of some sort of role play by email service. Not sure on that one yet.

In the meantime, I’d be curious to hear from you if any of my proposed professional services are of interest to you. For everyone else, don’t worry. My screen name is changing, but that’s all. I’ll still be keeping up with my blog and all that entails, as well as writing about the kinky things that turn me on. It’s going to be a challenge, that’s for sure, but with a little self-discipline I think I can pull it off…or at least I can continue to get you to pull it off – which is job #1 here at DirtyMindedManufacturing Inc.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to put on my platform heels, squeeze into my neon micro-dress, and hit the streets looking for a few literate tricks.

  1. Love the “entrpreneurial” direction you’re taking and wish you all the best. Having read practically all of your work, and others’ as well, I have yet to find an author who injects the reality that you do. You create a scene that is truly believable in visual imagination and language. YOU’RE GOOD!!!! I’ve toyed with writing some of my experiences, but have been too busy to give the attention it needs. But were I to need a collaborator or editor, I’ll know where to go. Good luck and I’ll be following as always. Art

  2. Sounds like fun, but as good a writer as you are, and with as many of us perverts as there are who love your stories, blogs, and caption site, I most definitely think you’re gonna get slammed! PJ

  3. I have absolutely loved your work thus far but I fear as you seek to expand your erotic empire the quality will of necessity fall. You had what I felt was the best incest erotica around…..your perfect niche and obvious first love. As you branch out into areas of less interest and expertise not to mention an inevitable avalanche of requests for your services I worry about how one keeps the quality as high aschool it has been. In any event I wish you the best of luck and hope you can pull this off. I’ll sure miss the DirtyMindedMom.

  4. Dear me, the possibilities are…. endless.

    Wow.

    I need to put my thinking cap on… which certainly wouldn’t fit on my other, growing head… lol

    Good luck!

  5. I think your new approach will work out fine. You are keeping your existing format, but adding a new offering for individuals that that want to pay for a personal hands on story or narrative. Go for it Mommy Minx!

  6. @Grandpa4fun: It’s always nice to hear how much you enjoy the things that I do. I’m not planning on letting the quality of writing suffer as a result of my new venture. In fact, I am likely to step my game up with the prospect of people shelling out their hard earned money for my stuff. My expectation is that this will translate into my writing I do for my own pleasure (and of course yours). I guess we’ll just have to see how it all plays out. The nice part is that if it doesn’t work out so hot, or if I can’t manage it all, I can always just reel it back and chalk it up as an interesting experience. Hugz!

  7. @Grandp4fun: Yes! The reason is that your comments are getting automatically tossed into my spam filter. I’ve been making an effort to check my spam bucket every day, but I sometimes miss a day. I get about 50 legit spam comments a day, so there’s a lot to scan through to make sure no real comments have been mistakenly sorted there. The reason your messages get shunted into spam is the zoig.com profile link you include with your posts. Anything with a URL gets marked as potential spam and needs to get approved before it shows up. I could set the URL limit to 2 or more to avoid this, but then the better part of the 50 spams a day would start showing up in comments. It’s annoying, but that’s the best I can do with the free hosting platform I’m using. If you like, you can leave the profile URL off, then when I see a comment from you I can add it from my end – that might be easier for both of us…

  8. I sent you an email from Triple Erotica..they have writers who post dog fucking so imagine your incest stories would be welcome..just a thought..BBB

  9. If you can’t do taboo, I mean real taboo, then there’s nothing to set you apart. Just another blond porn star. Being really talented and doing taboo, that’s exciting. Imagine Scarlett Johansson doing porn.

  10. When you turn your porn addiction into a business.
    You run the risk of a pissed off customer following the
    money trail back to you and blowing up your whole world.

    You better be ready to tell your hubby and children everything
    before you start billing people & taking their money.

    It only takes one anti porn zealot or troll to sink
    you faster then the Titanic when theres money involved…….

    Just be careful please.

  11. I too have sent you an email with a link to Amazon and some erotic stories selling for $2.99. They are incest related, just categorised under “taboo”.
    I wish you luck – you certainly provide a lot of pleasure to a lot of people, so maybe you deserve more than just sexual reward (your daily cums!!) and get a financial reward instead.

    I hope though that the pleasure you get from doing your little hobby at present never becomes a chore if you decide to do it for money. I also echo the last comment – people are much less tolerant and far more demanding and critical once money changes hands, so take care.

    Good luck what ever you choose.

    Tim

    P.S. Off to look for more captions and see how long I last!!!

  12. The main reason I have not ventured into the world of published smut is exactly what MaternallyObsessed said. If this is something that your other half does not support, then you could be travelling down a rocky road. And there’s your kids to consider. You are a talented writer. I love your stuff, and would love to see you succeed, but when the royalties start rolling in, how do you explain it to your husband?
    Regardless of what you decide, I wish you luck.

  13. A lot of good advice and warnings have helped me think about all this from different perspectives. I’ve considered some of the potential problems raised, but I appreciate the input because there are some things I hadn’t thought of. As far as hubby finding out, I plan on doing my best to keep everything a secret as long as I can. If he somehow finds out about me writing for money, it will be awkward but I believe I’ll be able to explain it in a way that will sound fairly reasonable. There’s a risk, but I think it’s small enough that I can manage it. (Famous final words.) I intend this venture to be fairly small. At first I’ll be working with people who “know me” and know my work. I’m planning to operate on a satisfaction-guaranteed policy, and will be happy to refund any monies paid if the client or customer isn’t completely happy. I don’t expect a flood of money to come pouring in, so I’m pretty sure I can fly under the tax radar for the nonce. If the big bucks start rolling in, then I’ll simply have to have a conversation with the hubs and let him know I’m the new breadwinner in the house and if he doesn’t like me writing porn he can go ahead and suck my ass (which he does already anyway). Plus, like I said, I’m not do or die on this thing. If it looks like it’s going to turn ugly, I can simply walk away. In the meantime, I’ll definitely take it slow and be as careful as I can along the way.

    Thanks for keeping it real with me!

  14. I understand that this is, of course, your blog and that we are all here in this corner of cyberspace at your indulgence. That being said, here is this fan’s initial reaction to this news. It sound to me like your blog will become even more watered down than it already is. Personally, I am here to read the writing and the expression of the thoughts and original ideas that spill out of your perverted brain. It seems like there is less and less of that lately. You do what you want, I’ll probably keep coming back.

    As for the new moniker, DirtyMindedMinx, generic. I found DirtyMindedMom to be so lascivious and provocative that it gave me a filthy thrill I saw it. That’s just my opinion. And you know what they say about opinions.

  15. On second thought, there was a girl named Minx who did some excellent girl/girl video work with her friend named Misty Rain, some of my all time pud pounding favorites. So there’s that.

  16. @Tommy: Thanks for being upfront and honest about your reactions. As far as the name, I was trying for something more generic that didn’t go too far away from my original screen name. I was considering a name change before I hit on the idea of doing custom story writing – this venture just gave me the extra motivation to actually do it. One of the things that I was running into was more and more guys contacting me and wanting to know intimate details about my girls. I wasn’t thinking about this when I created the name, and it makes me a little uncomfortable. For the most part I can just ignore such inquiries, but I know that by having ‘mom’ as part of my screen name, and writing in the genre that I do, I’m pretty much inviting this kind of attention. It also doesn’t help that I’ve posted about my kids here in the past. I don’t mind the kind of “normal” discussions I’ve had with many of you about my girls, but then there are others who want to know certain personal things that just shouldn’t be mixed up with porn. I have no problem at all with the kind of thing going on in the Fan Fic section, and quite enjoy the nasty fantasies about me and my future teen daughters, but people wanting to know too many details and encouraging me to engage in sexual activity with them at the age they are now can sometimes be more than a little unsettling. This was happening mostly at the various story sites (Lush, xHam, XNXX, etc.) and not so much here, but I didn’t want to try to maintain two different screen names and confuse myself.

    I hear what you’re saying about things getting “watered down.” By this I assume you’re referring to the time I spend managing the various added sections of my blog (More Stories, DMM Fan Fic, Family Secrets, Captions, Polls, etc.), which has taken away from the time that I could be spending focused on writing my own stories. I can’t argue with that. I’ll see if I can do a better job with my time management so that I am devoting the larger bulk of my limited naughty time to the primary reason I started all this in the first place rather than the various bells and whistles. (I can’t give up doing dirty captions, though. I’m addicted to that!)

    Hugz,
    Rachael

  17. I for one, do enjoy your newer features, such as: secrets, incest themed captions, and the recent polls. It adds variety & and I’m all for it!

  18. well first I think you can do any damn thing you like. I have hoped that at some point you would make some money for your self. You’re the best out of all I have read, and I for one would pay to just read what you write. I like your mind and body both. love your work. Roger
