“There are some really awesome things about being in a polyamorous configuration like mine. You always have multiple someones to take care of you when you’re sick; the weed and vibrators are plentiful at each residence; you get to confuse strangers when you’re all interacting together in public, and the potential sexual scenarios are seemingly limitless.

“While readers of all genders and sexual orientations purchase romance, the market is fueled largely by women. But just who is penning these works, many of which admirably prioritize female pleasure?

“The goal of this special issue is to centre the voices of porn workers, especially those in frontof the camera. We treat their work as performance, craft, and even art; but also as necessaryeconomic activity for their survival.
