I am Corey Alexander. I am a white queer polyamorous transgender stone butch. I am a New York Jew who moved to Oakland so that I could build a life with other fat disabled queers who care about interdependence and access intimacy.

I am invested in a concept of sex positivity that honors desire, multiplicity and complexity, embodied wholeness, critical analysis, and self determination.

I am often changing, and often a catalyst for change. I value being caring, careful, intentional and present in my connections and life choices. I recognize that nonconsensual violence is common in all communities, am committed to fighting oppression and recognizing privilege, and am invested in endeavoring to only enact power in a deeply consensual and conscious manner.

I teach classes on kink, sex, relationships and anti-oppression activism. Contact PraxisProductions at Gmail dot com with teaching inquiries.

I write queer kink erotica under the name Xan West. Contact Xan_West at Yahoo dot com for writing inquiries.

If you would like to support my work, you can buy me a coffee here.

      Thanks for letting me know about the calls. I actually have them listed on my erotica calls page.

      It’s so nice to have you personally ask for my work. I will definitely think about submitting to one of your open calls.

      And thanks for your kind words about this site.

  4. I just wanted to thank you for all of your writing, both erotica and otherwise! and your posts! and links and thoughts!
    I have been so appreciating them since discovering them recently!

    For me the erotica you write feels so good on so many levels (not just sexual, but most definitely that too!) – I feel like I’ve never felt this affirmed in my sexuality and desire and attraction and feelings around gender and my identities (both ones that I have ended up with as well as ones that I choose politically) all at once and also how all these things are enmeshed with each other and also/therefore society at large (and how fucked up things can be!)…

    I also really appreciate your thoughts and experiences that you have shared on this site.

    So basically thank you so much for writing the words that you do!
    (I think this is the first time I’ve been this moved to write something resembling “fan mail”.)

    (I didn’t know where I should write this so I wrote it here.)
