Show Me: Erotic St. Louis Anthology

Last night, at the incredibly successful Sex Positive St. Louis Out Loud (if you weren’t there, you should feel bad), SEX+STL announced our new project, Show Me: an erotic anthology of stories set in St. Louis. We’re looking for prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and photography.

Check out our submissions call:


Send us your fiction or non-fiction submission of sex writing featuring St. Louis for inclusion in a St. Louis-themed anthology of erotica.

The Show Me anthology is a fundraiser for Sex Positive St. Louis (, a local organization that develops social, educational and experiential events promoting the exploration of human sexuality in its many forms and celebrating the many valuable roles that sexuality plays in our lives.

We seek authors and photographers of all backgrounds and genders, writing about all kinds of sex and aspects of sexual experience. You don’t have to have gone to high school here, but it might help if you’ve visited – we’re interested in a strong sense of place, however you include aspects of St. Louis and its environs. Prose, poetry and photography accepted.

Prose submissions should be between 1000 and 6000 words.


  • scenarios that creatively include St. Louis landmarks (getting fucked with a view of the Arch, etc)
  • ‘memories’ (fictional or not) of special sexual experiences (first time; kink awakening, etc) in a given neighborhood, or locality.
  • ‘historical’ erotica involving famous St. Louis personages (a night with Tennessee Williams or Josephine Baker)
  • long, hot flirting in a St. Louis-area coffeehouse or bar or club and that ends in a hot scene.
  • hot Craigslist hook-up, during a weekend visit to STL
  • experiences in the St. Louis swingers scene
  • exhibitionism, or outdoor sex at a local park
  • last night in St. Louis
  • whatever other STL naughtiness you come up with
