Call for Submissions

Bright Desire is looking for erotic and flash fiction that is positive, female-friendly, innovative and different.


I am looking for high quality erotic fiction or flash fiction to feature once a month. Stories can cover any topic, however it must be erotic in nature, relatively explicit and sex positive.

I’m looking for stories that are more than just a sex scene. Blow-by-blow accounts of sex are boring. I want to see stories with interesting scenarios and fascinating characters; stories that explore the issues and emotions surrounding sex. Remember that dialogue and buildup can be just as erotic as the actual sex.

When it comes to flash fiction, I want succinct, erotic pieces that successfully get an idea across in a small number of words. Cleverness is encouraged, as are twists and out-and-out dirty hotness. Again, blow-by-blow accounts of sex aren’t encouraged, unless there’s an interesting central theme to justify it.

Erotic Stories should be a maximum of 2000 words in length.
Flash fiction stories should be a minimum of 300 and a maximum of 500 words in length.


US$15 per Flash Fiction piece
US$25 per Erotic Fiction piece

Payment will be made electronically, so you must have an appropriate account the best known online payment system (who I won’t mention here due to their punitive methods of dealing with adult sites). If you cannot be paid this way, I cannot publish your work.
