As literally (LITERALLY) the world’s foremost master of erotica, Mr. Tingle gained a lot of online attention when I was a freshman in college, back in 2016. His sense of humor and utter willingness to commit to the bit made him something of a Tumblr darling in particular, gifting us with such gems as this:

Explore Tingle’s bibliography and you’ll see that he’s got even more gems to sift through, many along the lines of the stunning, flawless, no-imperfections-whatsoever title, Absolutely No Thoughts of Pounding During My Fun Day With This Kind T-Rex Because I’m Aromantic and Asexual and That’s a Wonderfully Valid Way of Proving Love Is Real.

Thus bringing us to our next point about Tingle: He’s got a heart as big as his protagonists’ dingalings, and he’s very outspoken on social issues he cares about! From calling out J.K. Rowling to making fun of Elon Musk, there’s nobody that Tingle won’t tingle. And now, the entertainment industry is next on his list.

Behold: solidarity at its finest!

Yes, Chuck, oh my god. This is the sexiest thing he’s ever written. And the sexiest part about it is that he’s not charging any money for it—EXCEPT donations that would go straight to the WGA. Like. Ugh. Forgive me for making you read this next line, but damn: What a panty-dropper move.

i said what i said

Writing is sexy. Writers are sexy. Supporting writers so they can write, when you’re already a writer? Oh my god. That’s the sexiest possible thing you can do.

So, here’s your reminder to go do just that, in any way you can. Solidarity is sexy.

Her journey into digital media began in college, primarily regarding audio: in 2018, she started producing her own music, which helped her secure a radio show and co-produce a local history podcast through 2019 and 2020. After graduating from UC Santa Cruz summa cum laude, her focus shifted to digital writing, where she's happy to say her History degree has certainly come in handy! When she's not working, she enjoys taking long walks, playing the guitar, and writing her own little stories (which may or may not ever see the light of day).
