Call for Submissions: How Not To Get Laid

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

By Chris Teja

Someone who was particularly clever when it came to food metaphors once said, “Pizza is a lot like sex. When it’s good, it’s really good. And when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good.” And while I’m a firm believer in this quote, I think it’s safe to say that we all have at least one (I’m being very optimistic here) sexual encounter we’d prefer to forget ever happened.

But what do us writer-y types do with our secret shames? Do we forget about them and move on like a normal person? Absolutely not. We post them all over the internet for anyone who cares to read. How Not To Get Laid is a site dedicated entirely to sharing tales of sex gone wrong. HNTGL is the brainchild of Stewart Fox, a late-bloomer turned ladies man turned committed boyfriend looking to help others avoid the mistakes he made on his long, painful journey to sexual competence. He describes HNTGL’s mission as, “providing a forum for stories about all those amazing sexual encounters you almost had but didn’t. It is a place to learn from the mistakes of others, a place where we can share our most intimate tales of angst-ridden rejection, humorous heartbreak, and dirtiness deferred.” 

So let’s all do the responsible thing here and share our stories so others can skip the awkwardness and get down to business.
