jem has a passion for erotic content, and considers access to sexual aids an important component to a sexually healthy society. much of zir work has explicit or mature elements.
jem’s scifi erotic flashfic, A STUDY IN CIRCUITS AND CHARCOAL, won for Best Feminist Sex in the Good Sex Awards. the piece was originally published in Erato, an anthology by The New Smut Project.
