My last blog post questioned the motives of Jessica Cutler. Could she perhaps have been blogging for leverage in a relationship? What were her motivations? I’ll let Cutler clarify the matter in her own words.
“I don’t want to hear that I’m trying to embarrass anyone or get a book deal. That so isn’t what sex blogging is about! For me, it’s about writing realistically about sex so that people can take it in stride and not be all “Oooh, look what this slut is doing!” I may have failed at this objective, but it’s nice to know that others are doing it despite hostility towards sex writers, threats of lawsuits and so forth.”
Whilst Cutler’s explanation is hardly an insightful revelation into her motivations it nevertheless highlights the contested nature of the blog as a space referring as she does to hostility and lawsuits that may arise from personal blogging.
