Hello Sex-Positive Friends!


Hello, Self Serve(d) Blog readers! My name is Sera Miles, and I’ve been kindly asked by Molly and Matie of Self Serve to contribute to this blog. It is a pleasure and honor to introduce myself to you today.

I have been a kinkster for as long as I can remember, long before I knew words to help me self-define. I exited the kink closet in 2001 when I entered the sex industry, initially as a spanking video actress. I performed both dominant and submissive roles for Kelly Payne and Strict Women, and eventually for Pacific Force. I also apprenticed with Mistress Vendela Zane, who taught me a great deal about listening, paying attention, and the joys and rewards of professional fetish sex work.

I moved to New Mexico in 2002 and quickly went to work for PEP, People Exchanging Power, fetish phone lines. I now work closely with PEP and its founder, Nancy Ava Miller, on a variety of projects, and I do take the occasional phone call.

I believe strongly in sex workers’ rights. I have contributed to $pread Magazine, and I moderate a FetLife.com group called “Past & Present Sex Workers.” My favorite tank top is from SWOP (Sex Workers Outreach Project); pretty script across the bosom reads, “Decriminalize Prostitution.”

Also, on FetLife, I moderate the “New Mexico FetLifers” group. Members discuss upcoming kinky events, and we meet in person, once a month or more, to learn, share, eat, laugh, play, and whatever else we think of. I’ll be posting up-to-date information about our events here.

I’m pretty good at bringing people together and at planning events, but I’m not much of a planner. On this blog, then, it’s hard to say what I plan to write about. I’m sure I’ll post on spanking, kinky events, and sex work. But what else? I’d love to know what you would like to read about …
