Due to the popularity of our first zine, Fucked: On Being Sexually Dysfunctional in Sex Positive Queer Scenesand our Can’t Fuck/ Won’t Fuck discussions in London and Brighton we are currently looking for contributions for our second zine, Too Fucked, Too Furious.
Contributions can be prose (probably not more than one side of A4 typed), poetry, illustrations etc. Please email your contribution to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov 1st. All entries will be published anonymously.
For a bit of inspiration have a look at the event description used for our Can’t Fuck/ Won’t Fuck discussions:
Have you ever felt left out or alienated by sex-positivity and the way it plays out in your interpersonal relationships or in the spaces where you hang out? Have you ever felt pressure to feel/perform desire, to be (or be seen to be) sexually active, to have relationships or date people, to do non-monogamy (or to do it in a specific way), to have fulfilling/pleasurable sex or to have certain kinds of sex?
Do you feel like sex-positivity often ignores the reality of living, and trying to be sexual, in a racist ableist cissexist hetero-patriarchal rape culture? Have you ever felt like consent shouldn’t be framed in terms of sexiness? Does your queer or feminist community fail to make space for people on the asexual and aromantic spectrums?
When most of the queer and feminist spaces we have access to are explicitly sex-positive and/or centred around hooking up, talking about sex-negative or sex-critical feelings can often make us feel like kill-joys, pissing on everyone else’s sexually liberated parade.
This discussion aims to provide a safer space in which to talk about the above questions. We will also be exploring ways in which our queer and feminist communities can be more inclusive of those who can’t fuck, won’t fuck, don’t fuck, or who choose to only fuck some of the time.
This is something I do and it is a great thing. Please contribute if you can/if you want or pass it on to anyone you think might want to. We’ll accept submissions from anywhere (in fact, it would be nice to branch out beyond South East London, hah).
“I’m searching, I’m searching. I’m trying to understand. Trying to give what I’ve lived to somebody else and I don’t know to whom, but I don’t want to keep what I lived. I don’t know what to do with what I lived, I’m afraid of that profound disorder. I don’t trust what happened to me.”

I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
