Contest: Take a survey, win some dildos!

by Cara McKenna


I've shanghaied Ashlyn's slot (goodness, that sounds seedy) to share news of a fun contest I'm running with the Naugthy Author Chicks this week. And okay, that headline's an exaggeration—you won't win dildos. What you could win is a $20 gift card for Babeland.com, where you may purchase some quality dildos if you so choose, or any other filthy fun thing you fancy.

The contest is simple. Here's what you do:

1) Take the What Erotica Readers Want survey HERE. Do so by Wednesday, March 7 at 12 noon, EST. It's only two pages long and you get to tell me about all the filthy whatnots you're into reading.

2) Visit me this Thursday, March 8, right here with the Naughty Author Chicks. Check out the results of the survey and leave a comment by 9pm EST. One lucky commenter will be chosen at random to win the gift card.

Easy peasy. And you can all count yourselves lucky that I was too cheap to shell out for a pro-membership with Surveymonkey, and was consequently limited to ten questions. If you've read my posts before you'll know I'm mind-numbingly long-winded and this survey could've read like the smut SATs if I'd been given too long a technological leash.

Hope to see you Thursday for the results! Also, I promised to pimp Ashlyn and the other awesome authors taking part in Ellora's Cave's Red Stilettos series. Reading their red-hot stories won't help you score any dildos, but it can't hurt!

Fun concept. Took the survey! And I will be back to see what interesting things we all have had to say...

Thanks, Cecile! I had a blast creating it and the answers I'm getting back are fascinating. I've even had a couple of transgender respondents (currently as many trans folks have taken part as regular old males!) Pass it along to any erotica reader friends you may have. The bigger the participant pool, the more accurate the stats.

That was a really interesting survey...I've never broken down exactly all the reasons I love erotica but you pretty much hit it on the nail. I'm looking forward to finding out the results of the survey.

hugs,

The results are really stacking up! Thanks to everyone who's participated so far—see you Thursday to discuss the results and reward a lucky commenter with twenty bucks' worth phallic phun.

Took the survey and I must admit I never realized subconsciously that I had some strong preferences, especially on the buzz kill.

I'll be back to see the results.
