Welcome to The Carnal Carnival!

The Carnal Carnival will publish the third Friday of each month. The host will pick the general topic for that particular month (though any post from any carnal topic, broadly construed, will be welcome each month!)

There is also no rule that the post you submit for a given topic must have been written in the previous month. When else would you be able to submit that barf post from 2007, for example? But don’t submit the same post to multiple editions.

You can follow the carnival on twitter, get it by email, or subscribe to the RSS feed all in the sidebar.

Submit your posts by emailing links to: carnivalcarnal AT gmail DOT com

    May is all yours!

    Put me down for June ’11 and the theme roadkill and animal remains.

    Oops. I see I’m already down for February.

    Hi, I’d love to do June 2011 if I can! Theme TBD.

    Hey Bora,
    Since the first carnival is about shit, does that mean you’ll be accepting posts about the state of the economy and those we have entrusted with running it?

    archy: roadkill it is.
    bec crew: june is all yours

    I’ll take one! I’ve been meaning to step up my carnival involvement. Theme: genitals. Endless forms most beautiful, and all that.

  9. August 10, 2010 at 2:21 am

    Poop is all about incontinence, excretions, fecal matter, diarrhea, coprolites, coprophagy, dung beetles, intestinal parasites…. whatever you can think of.

  10. August 10, 2010 at 2:29 am

    Wow, you guys are awesome. Andi has July 2011 with masturbation, and Jeremy has August 2011 with a genital theme. I can’t believe we already have 13 months planned.

  11. August 10, 2010 at 2:44 am

    I am pretty sure I got the best topic, with Jason’s at a close second.

    Hey Bora, and all, I’ll host one on Science is Sexy in September 2011-the ins and outs of the science of human sex and attraction.

  13. August 11, 2010 at 1:48 am

    Oookay-any chance I can do this in October 2011, then?

  14. August 11, 2010 at 1:51 am

    Just saw your message-I’m at science-is-sexy.com Sorry about the omission!
