Our home city of Berlin has been heralded as sex-positive, and while this is true, the dominant discourse revolves around hardcore tendencies within sex. Through intimate voices we examine the soft; the practical; the fleeting; the scientific; the hardcore; the multiple; the single; the loving; the queer, straight, non-specifying; the not being into sex at all not even a little bit. 


        Softness and hardness were two principle dualities that kick-started our first issue. Being soft and being hard have been considered at odds, but we are acknowledging that both ways of being are not mutually exclusive. 

        With over 30 contributors, this issue was formed through our personal connections with friends, friends of friends, people we've known for years and people we just met last night, people we met over skype, and people we've never even seen.
