Super Hussy Media’s Call for Submissions for “The Talk: Women of Color on Sex”
Brooklyn, NY – April 14, 2010—Brooklyn-based entertainment company, Super Hussy Media (www.superhussy.com), announced today the first call for submissions for their annual publication, the Compendium. The first issue, THE TALK, focuses on self-identified women of Color and how they learned about sex. The deadline for submission is July 1, 2010.
“The Talk,” says Super Hussy founder, Aiesha Turman, “is an exploration of how women of color across the Diaspora learned about sex and what it meant to have a sexual relationship. Ultimately, The Talk is our testimonies on how we were taught or chose to learn about our sexuality and how we are continuing to learn these lessons. “
Super Hussy Media is seeking writers who can share an intimate understanding with readers of not only how they learned about sex, but how that knowledge impacted their sexual exploration. Did you mom sit you down for the big talk? Were your hermanas responsible for giving you the low down? Or was Cinemax After Dark, YouTube or a soap opera your sex ed teacher? Super Hussy is looking for funny, sad, enraging and transformational pieces to share with other women of color to continue the growth, the lessons, introspection and reflection.
