Dirty Calligraphy

I’ve gotten really in to calligraphy, fountain pens, art journaling, and some other paper crafts over the past few years, and it intensified during the pandemic when I had all that time at home. Recently I started sharing videos of writing dirty words over on Instagram which has been really fun.

Head over there and follow me, if you hang out on Instagram — it has been my favorite social media for years now, though its policies on sex and sexuality lately have been awful and many sex educators, queer folks, trans folks, drag performers, sex workers, and more are getting posts taken down and even their accounts closed. It’s so frustrating and honestly, I mostly feel really powerless about it, but I am watching intently as things evolve and trying to figure out what spaces we will be able to have to express ourselves and share in the future.

(Lately I’ve been really loving Tiktok, although the sexuality content is highly censored and banned on that platform, too. Are you on Tiktok these days? Find me, @mrsexsmith, on there.)

Here are a few of the dirty calligraphy clips!
