Forgive this shameless plug, but YNOT is sponsoring what promises to be a pretty useful event — “SW Write Meet”!
Ness Cooper, aka Lady Ness, is a UK-based sex educator and relationship coach who has worked in the adult industry for over ten years in a range of occupations. She is also a freelance inclusive copywriter, maintains a sex toy review blog at nymphomaniacness.com and offers her copywriting services through copyeverafter.com.
“I currently am helping two new adult industry companies — both launching soon — with their copywriting, and it seems an existing time to get adult focused copy out there onto websites,” Cooper explained.
Thus, enter “SW Write Meet” — a writing workshop for sex workers. Sponsored by YNOT, the event will be held on February 24, 2021 from 1 to 3 pm EST. It is free to attend, though there is an option to leave a donation if you choose.

Event copy states:
When it comes to writing about what we do, most of have been stuck that we can’t type it out. Even I get stuck, and I professionally write in the adult industry. One area I find the hardest is writing my own content to promote me. So, I’ve put together a little workshop, with a lot of writing tips and tricks, to help us all write what we actually need!
Need motivation? Stuck on the road to procrastination? Maybe imposter syndrome is getting to you? This workshop is one where we will have a relaxed time chatting about what we have written, what we hope to write, and what we have all found helpful when writing for our SWer clients. [During] the second half of the “course,” we will spend some time writing and actually getting ou[r] shit down.
According to Cooper, during the event, she is “hoping that we can support each other to push through those moments of procrastination.”
“Writing our own content is one of the hardest things going, and now it seems essential, which in turn can put us off even further,” Cooper explained. “Silly I know, that when we have to do something we don’t want to, but many of us are like this with our to-do list, and content writing is one of them.”
“There’s no real way to write effectively, but sometimes we all need help to get our life and work goals down onto paper… Writing can help our sex worker clients feel connected more and help them click connect through buying a clip or booking a session,” she continued.
According to Cooper, this will be the first workshop in an ongoing series.
For anyone who’s ever frozen over the keys when about to launch into that “About Me” section that every. single. site has, you know what Cooper is getting at here. Even if you fancy yourself pretty legit when it comes to writing, it can’t hurt to hear from others who are similarly minded in terms of the importance of writing, struggles notwithstanding.
Give it a go!
