Help me keep fighting for sexual freedom

Posted at 18:05 on 3 Oct 2016 by Pandora Blake

So, a few months ago I kicked off a Patreon campaign supporting my political activism. I expected it to grow fairly slowly, though of course I had plenty of hopes - but I was absolutely gobsmacked when one very generous benefactor made an extremely substantial pledge. Their support has meant I've had an unbelievably busy and productive few months:

I'm incredibly grateful for the help of this particular patron to date, along with that of all my Patreon supporters. But my benefactor was always very candid that they couldn't sustain this level of support for ever, and now it's come to an end - just as I'm really getting some momentum with my activism. I'm so glad they were able to help me get to this point, and now I need an extra boost.

All the activism and political organising I do is unpaid, and I still need to pay my bills and keep a roof over my head, just like everyone else. I don't receive a regular salary from any organisation - all my income is entirely self-generated, and every moment I'm volunteering can feel like lost earnings, as I'm sure the freelancers amongst you can understand. This is why Patreon has the potential to be such a revolutionary tool for activists - it's a way to support unpaid work that doesn't rely on a huge expenditure from any one individual. If enough people want to contribute even $10 a month to support what I'm doing, then I can keep doing it.

Become a patron and support my political activism

Support my political activism on Patreon

I have big news! No, it's not the relaunch of Dreams of Spanking... I wish. But it's almost as exciting. I am now crowd-funding my political activism on Patreon, to help me afford to keep doing the important work I'm doing around censorship, porn and sex work. 

Patreon works like the old-school patronage model. You pledge a certain amount a month (it's all done in US Dollars, I'm afraid) - say $5, the cost of buying me a coffee at my desk. The pledges add up until I can afford to turn down some paid work next month, and do more activism in its place. I pay my rent, you get a campaigner fighting your corner with renewed enthusiasm, everyone wins.
