How to Calculate Your Rates Part 1

Kayla Lords

Kayla Lords is a freelance sex writer, podcaster, blogger, all-around sex content creating human, and she really likes creating content. As a writer, she focuses on sex and kink primarily on BDSM and power exchange. She works with private clients to write their content and manage their social media, while also co-hosting two podcasts, running a YouTube channel, and managing multiple blogs. Let's just say, she stays busy and wants to keep it that way. Kayla is an international speaker and an award-winning sex blogger. She believes we are stronger together as a community than we are isolated and apart. We all deserve to get paid for the work we do, but until we understand our cumulative power, we'll all wonder if we're "the only one" doing this smutlancing thing.

    I currently have an email in my inbox that asks me my rates for a type of work that I never considered doing but am VERY confident that I could do, plus my rates for ghost writing which I’ve never done before. (They’re also asking my rates for something that is a hard limit because of my anonymity, and knowing that I’m just going to say that I can’t do that and not worry that I “should” be saying yes to everything is kind of amazing?) I’ve had a few friends tell me recently that I need to raise my rates, so I’m definitely going to be applying your “choose the rate that makes you uncomfortable” advice in my reply. Thank you for reminding me of the things that go into calculating your rates – and for all of your content, which continually reminds me of my WORTH as a writer.

      I’m glad the site/this article can help with setting your rates! And that you’re getting more comfortable with the idea of turning down work that’s not right for you.
