So you think you can write better porn? Kink.com scriptwriting contest

by Violet Blue on November 10, 2012

Online porn powerhouse and BDSM trailblazers Kink.com have just announced a scriptwriting contest with a pirate booty prize to the tune of $2000 USD (£1257.54 GBP). Kink will make the script into a Featured Kink Shoot, a private tour of the Armory (travel to SF not included), screen credit, an autographed photo from the shoot, and a year’s subscription to any Kink website the winner chooses.

Terms of the submission process require that writers surrender rights to their story ideas, so it’s a thing you’ll only want to do if you don’t want to own the work after you send it in. However, Kink is planning on selecting runners-up – as many as they get that they think are great ideas – and the runners-up will see their story made into a shoot, receive script credit, and a year’s subscription to the Kink site of their choice.

So if you just want to see your sexual scenario fetish fantasy made to Kink standards, that’s kind of cool. I mean, I could comment about Terms that take ownership of writers’ work (I have had to make decisions about owning my work versus letting it go in order to achieve a specific goal). And I could snark about contests – or “hackathons” – run by large companies that are little more than Mechanical Turkathons. But then I think about all the times I’ve oh so badly wished to see a certain sex scenario made with good quality production standards and hot actors… So I gotta hope Kink gets a lot of good stuff, because… that.
