When I learned about the car situation, I immediately started thinking of what I could make that would be able to earn some quick cash in order to finance November. It’s no secret that the most popular post on this blog is the Female Masturbation Techniques. On it’s own, it accounts for roughly half of my traffic.
My first thought was to make that entire post into a poster and sell it. But as soon as I go to “slapping or patting the vulva or clitoral area,” I realized that maybe it’s Internet appeal wasn’t the sort of thing that could translate into a 20 by 26 full-color format.
Then I remembered my MASTURBATE shirt. Back when I was making shirts, one of the most popular ones was a white number with red sparkly letters across the front that said MASTURBATE. It’s simple, straightforward and just dirty enough to be fun without being entirely gross.
