Sensual Liberation Army | est. 2000
Attempting to navigate the delicate interstitial space between nonsexual body-positive nudity and sensual, sex-positive erotica against a moving backdrop of humanitarian struggle and progress since 2000.
Its original mention on the web was in this piece on Exquisite Corpse: Copernicus Grape Loves Ivy, & Ivy Loves Copernicus Grape, by Dr. Menlo (April/May 2000).
Designed with one simple, nonprofit guerrilla marketing mission in mind: divert nude pageviews (back then the number one source of traffic on the internet — before social media came along) toward good, progressive causes.
Thus: See Some Nudes/Save the World! was born.
Of course, then, the challenge from a progressive POV was: is there any erotica out there eligible in this category?
Luckily, sex-positive was a thing back then, so yes. It is a delicate dance, to be sure. Here is where we are on it now, if you are curious — SLA presents the Best Erotica Out There 2018.
