We here at Adventures From are wishing you all joy, happiness and sexiness for the new year. 2021 was a packed year – we heard from new and amazing writers, had a kick ass festival with a FIRE concert, and fucking survived a pandemic – and we’re expecting even bigger and better things for 2022. Here’s a peek into what’s coming down the pike this year. But first, some gifts!
Remember when we made a mix tape?
You may recall our group project (which you all did fabulously on!) where we created a mix tape as a family. Well, our staff put together all of those steamy suggestions for you! Now you have some bangers to bang to whenever the mood strikes.
Paint Your Pleasure!
2021 brought us the opportunity to collab with so many talented African women. We teamed up with Lynette Barnes to create our first ever Adult Colouring book, available here for digital download…free! Colouring isn’t just for kids, and this is why we encourage you to “paint your pleasure”. We hope engaging with these images will be a tool to unlock your desires and (re)discover the beauty of your body.
Ready to get Adventurous?
The Adventurous Fellowship is coming back! Dust off your writing samples and get ready to apply. Applications will open this month and will close at the end of February. In addition to the writing and social media fellowships, this year we’re excited to announce that we will have a third fellowship category: Visual Arts. If you’re a graphic designer, illustrator, animator…we want you! Keep checking our site and socials for announcement information.
It’s time to make those New Year Sex Goals!
Here at Adventures when it comes to pleasure, we believe if you can see it, you can achieve it. We also believe in a hands on approach. (Every pun very much intended) That’s why we are so pleased that our very own Nana Darkoa will be hosting our first ever Pleasure Workshop where she will share tips on how to identity and achieve your personal pleasure goals. Tickets will go on sale in February. If you haven’t subscribed to our newsletter yet, this would be a GREAT time to do so so you won’t miss out on these and other announcements.
It’s our birthday!
On January 18th, Adventures From the Bedrooms of African Women enters its teenage phase. That’s right. We’ve nurtured this baby for 13 whole years. Can you believe it? There will be some changes with our look and so forth, but fundamentally, we’ll remain the same. We think Malaka said something about making a cake to mark the transition. (Let’s all hold her to it.)
Thank you for riding with us. We love you, Adventurers.
Happy New Year
