Finally it is here; The Top 100 Sex Bloggers 2016 list.
Please make sure you have read the pre-list post that was published yesterday; The Bit Before. It might just answer any questions you have about the list and most importantly of all is full of very important thank you’s and some words from the sponsors of the list Kink Craft.
Also lets not forget the past winners of this list who are: Sinclair SexSmith (2008) Coquitten (blog no longer available. 2009) (No #1 winner in 2010) Guy New York (2011) Molly’s Daily Kiss (2012) Lady Pandorah (Blog no longer open. 2013) Girl on the Net (2014) A Dissolute Life Means… (2015)
This year the list has been sponsored by Kink Craft who have donated prizes for all the blogs in the top 10. A gold, silver and bronze hand crafted flogger will be winging its way to the bloggers in the top 3 spots respectively and the rest of the top 10 will be receiving a set of Kink Craft nipple sticks.
New Voice of the Year Award
This award goes to a blog(s) that is new this year and therefore have not been around long enough to qualify for the Top Sex Bloggers list. Like last year I could not settle on just one so we have joint winners
A Couple of Kinks – There really are a lot of exceptional sex toy review blogs around but these guys have caught my attention with the variety of content that they are writing. Definitely ones to watch in 2017.
Pain and Pleasure – This blog is an interesting and unique take on kink because it is written by someone who gets their kink fix by paying professional sex workers for it. Despite most of it not being my particular kink I have found his excellent writing engaging and thought-provoking.
And now for the main attraction….
I will be absolutely honest with you here when I reordered the list after scoring all the sites I was not in the least bit surprised to find Ferns at the top. She was No.10 on the list last year but in my opinion her rise to the number one spot is well deserved. She has been producing fantastic content for 8+ years and her writing continues to go from strength to strength. To be quite frank not many of us can say that. Even though her kink and mine are the direct opposite of one another her exceptional work always captures my attention and I think that is a huge testament to her writing which is frank, raw, gritty, intelligent and sexy as fuck. I hope you will all join me in congratulating her on the No.1 spot.

As I said last year Lilly is all the things you want in a sex toy reviewer; honest, smart, dedicated, and knowledgeable. Like Ferns she too has been blogging for 8+ years and the quality, quantity and variety of her content is exceptional. If you look back through her blog you will see that she has truly evolved over the years into the blogger she is now who has a genuine passion for what she does and I think that shines through in her work.

I have long been a fan of Rebel’s blog, after all we share a very similar relationship dynamic and so her writing often speaks directly to me but this year she seems to have really blossomed. Her blog is well designed, it looks fantastic and is easy to navigate and both the quantity and quality of her writing is excellent, perhaps even more so when you consider that English is not her first language.

4. Malin James
Malin is an extraordinary, talented writer in my opinion. Her fiction continues to be some of the best around, in fact I would go so far as to say that the erotic fiction on her blog is the best on this list. However she is not just a fiction writer, far from it in fact, her non fiction writing shows a highly self-aware woman who is a deep and intelligent thinker.

Drew’s blog was a new but happy discovery for me on last years list and one I have continued to visit regularly since then. He has a really engaging writing style that draws you in. His kink is pretty much not my kink and yet his writing, a bit like Ferns makes that absolutely irrelevant to me as the reader. Yep, consider me hooked.

One of my favourite things about compiling this list is finding new blogs to read and when they are as good this one that discovery is even more delicious. I really like her blunt forthright style and the way she writes about things in such an open and honest manner. I have never met this person before but I already find myself rooting for her in her new(ish) relationship. That is the mark of a good blog in my opinion.

Another happy discovery of mine from last years list that has continued to go from strength to strength this year. The design and functionality of his blog is absolutely excellent and I really do like the ‘at a glance summery’ in the form of the little dial that he uses on all his reviews. He is a skilled and thoughtful writer and his blog is always a pleasure to read.

Artist, Photography and author, Tabitha is one very talented lady and as such totally deserves this spot on the list. Her content whilst hugely varied is always of a high standard. She really is one kick arse writer when it comes to short flash fiction and her mixture of drawings and photography create a blog with a really strong visual aspect.

Nlikes pens a blog that is raw, frank and apologetically himself. His writing comes from a place of honest self-awareness and as a result at times can be a challenging read but in my opinion that is exactly what makes this blog such a great one. This is a sex blog with a capital S!

Mrs Fever’s blog is yet another one that I discovered from compiling last years list and damn can this woman write. Her blog is intelligent, sassy, sexy and passionate. She has a style and way with words that just draws you in and in my experience will turn you on even if her kink is not your kink. That is the mark of a great writer.

100. YOU! The last spot is for the all the other awesome sex bloggers out there. It is just not possible to include everyone, I relied on the nominations to gather the list and I am sure there are people missing, but this place is for you because every single one of you counts and contributes towards this community.
Want a button for your sidebar or blog post? If you are on the list feel free to grab the code below or alternatively save and upload the image to your own site but if you do that it would be wonderful if you could make sure the badge links back to this post.
Feel free to repost the list on your own blog (in entirety or just a part, like the top ten). All I ask is that you mention that I compiled this list and link back to this blog post. Also feel free to pick your favorites from this list to link to in your own mini-list…or even create your own full list! The whole point is to support the sex blogger community as much as possible by encouraging your readers to visit new and awesome blogs. You can grab the numbered only HTML for the list by CLICKING HERE. or the descriptive version of the top ten with the rest of the list HERE
Did you find any broken links or errors on the list? Have I called you by your wrong blog title for instance? Feel free to let me know in the comments below I will do my best to correct them. I really have double, triple checked and more the list but I will be astounded if there is not a mistake in it somewhere that I have not spotted.
Now all that is left for me to do is wish you all a happy festive season (or whatever you like to call it) and encourage you all bloggers and non bloggers to continue to create and enjoy as much sex blogging as you can in 2017!
