      Tawdry Bawdry launched on 14 February 2011 and landed with a little
      splash. We
      are flinging our next edition over the ramparts on 15 April and looking
      to make
      a bigger splash.

      We are looking for smart erotic poetry, flash fiction, stories, and
      essays on
      sexuality. Art on the same is also welcome. We are uninterested in
      the
      non-consensual and illegal, and very interested in the unusual,
      slightly skewed,
      uncommonly brave, and otherwise unexpected. Graphic sex is welcome,
      but we want
      stories and poems that include sex, but are about more than just sex.

      Please send all submissions to
      <submissions(at)tawdrybawdry.com>
      (replace (at) with @ in sending e-mail)

      All literary works should be contained in the body of the e-mail and
      accompanied by a pen
      name (if applicable) and a brief bio. All visual art should be
      attached as a
      .jpg and please include a bio in the body of the e-mail.

      Thank you!

          Tawdry Bawdry, an internet (approximately) quarterly journal reveling in all things sexual, is accepting submissions for our upcoming August 15 edition. While we always read everything, we are especially looking for stories, poems, and essays that reek of summer. More specifically, a recent trip to the county fair has us contemplating the overwhelming physicality of strapping yourself into a mechanical device designed to throw you and spin you while holding you down. We would love to see our inbox flooded with writing that is rooted in that total surrender to sensation.
          Check us out at www.tawdrybawdry.com to get a sense of the kinds of things that make us happy enough to publish. Submit your (proofread) work to
          <submissions(at)tawdrybawdry.com> (replace (at) with @)

            Tawdry Bawdry, a bi-monthly journal of all things sexual, is seeking submissions
            for our October 15th issue. Since this is our first Halloween, we are happy to
            go for the obvious: sexually adventurous ghosts, masquerade mishaps, zombies
            with an undead appetite for love... you get the picture.

            As usual, our tastes run toward the unexpected. Send us poems and stories that
            wouldn't fly elsewhere because there is just a little too much honesty in them
            (and we don't mean the kind of honesty that would get you arrested in real
            life). Take the time to read what we've published in the past to get a sense of
            what it is we are looking for: www.tawdrybawdry.com.

            Please send all submissions to <submissions(at)tawdrybawdry.com> (replace (at) with @ in sending e-mail).


            We want essays, short stories, poems, flash fiction... we'll look at it all so long as
            it is included in the body of the e-mail (no attachments, please) and is
            accompanied by a brief author bio. If you would prefer to use a pseudonym,
            please let us know.

            Thank you for submitting!

              Tawdry Bawdry, a bi-monthly journal of all things sexual, is seeking submissions
              for our December 15th issue. Our themes are loose at best, but as everyone else
              is off celebrating the Virgin Birth with Eggnog and copious quantities of
              commercialism, we are contemplating the other Mary. This theme started with
              Meshell Ndegeocello's Mary Magdalene, which is one of the sexiest songs ever and
              is consistent with our aesthetic here at TB. Interpret the theme as you like,
              ignore it, or send us work about the intersection between spirit and sex, the
              beauty of what we do to get by, the sacred whore, temple virgins, or what it
              might mean to Christianity if Jesus really did run off to France with Mary
              Magdalene.

              As usual, our tastes run toward the unexpected. Send us poems and stories that
              wouldn't fly elsewhere because there is just a little too much honesty in them
