Pre-Event Write Up
It’s less than two weeks until Eroticon 2017; my hotel is booked, I’ve planned the sessions I want to see, my case is packed, and I am getting excited. I’m really looking forward to Eroticon, seeing people I haven’t seen in a few years, and meeting lots of new people. It’s going to be great.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who very generously donated to my GoFundMe, to help cover my travel and accommodation costs. It is very much appreciated.
A special thank you to Mark at SheetsofSanFrancisco and Paulita at Lustery for their sponsorship. Without them I wouldn’t have been able to attend Eroticon 2017. Please do visit their websites and show them some love.
NAME (and Twitter if you have one)
Cheryl Kaye, also known as HornyGeekGirl.
What are you hoping to get out of Eroticon 2017?
To meet people, and learn some new things. I love learning so for me that’s what this is about. Learning new things.
This years schedule at Eroticon is pretty full on but which 4 sessions do you already have marked down as ones you want to attend?
- Sex Blogging as Feminism and Social Justice: Sarah Brynn Holliday – exploring the numerous ways writing and blogging about sex is truly social justice in practice.
- Pitching 101: learn to sell your ideas: Girl on the Net – will go through what makes a successful pitch.
- How to use your blog to educate : Emmeline Peaches, Formidable Femme, Hot Octopuss – discuss the ways in which blogging can help spread the word about issues relating to sexual health.
- Conflict Resolution in the “Call Out” Era – War Stories from the Internet Trenches : Ruby Goodnight – examining how successful companies handle their social media conflicts in a constructive manner.
Tell us one thing about yourself that not many people know?
I’m pretty much an open book. I share most things. Not sure what there is I haven’t shared. I unironically love 80s classic rock; Bon Jovi, Warrant, Aerosmith, etc. I love them all.
If you made the papers, what would the headline be?
Purple-Haired Hippy found dead surrounded by Sex Toys.
If you could have one skill for free (I.e. without practice/time/effort) what would it be?
Languages. Boring I know but I would love to be able to just pick up new languages. 🙂
Complete the sentence: I love it when…
things feel like they are working out. I don’t expect life to be easy but it’s nice when I don’t feel like I am just treading water.
