Why Financial Disclosure Matters on Your Website

Kayla Lords

I am an erotic author, sex blogger, podcaster, freelance writer, an opinionated marketer, and a speaker with a focus on BDSM and D/s. Here at The Smutlancer, I help people who want to create content or products about sex get paid to do it. I'm sharing what I've learned as a freelancer and a sex blogger to build a career. You can find me online sharing my innermost sexual thoughts and experiences and helping kinksters have healthy BDSM relationships. I'm also a masochistic babygirl submissive with an amazing and sadistic Daddy Dom and business partner, John Brownstone.

    This is one of the biggest walls I bang my head against as a blogger.

    Bias exists, especially when compensation is involved, and I don’t do product reviews for this reason (and have had some companies get downright nasty when I say “no thank /ou”).

    Also, even though I would be open to compensation for content under the right circumstances, I have so far (and I’ve been blogging nearly 6 years) not taken any companies up on their (typically unethical) offers.

      I like to think of myself as highly ethical, but I have definitely felt the pull of “I know this is wrong, but the money would be nice.” Thankfully, I don’t give into that thought and let the unethical offer (of which there are MANY, you’re right) slide right by. But they’re able to flourish and it keeps working because too many bloggers either don’t know the rules/ethics behind compensatory blogging or just don’t care. My hope is that many people just don’t know.
