Winners & Runners Up

Congratulations to the Good Sex Awards Winners and Runners Up. From the an outstanding list finalists, the judges voted in the Sexiest Consent, Sexy Talk, Feminist Sex, Best Kink, Best Use of Sex Toys, Best LGBTQI Scene, Thought Leadership, and Fan Fiction categories. Due to the overwhelming volume of high-quality submissions in the Sexiest Consent category, two winners and two runners up were selected. Fans and readers also had their say, and the single entry with the most votes has won the Readers’ Choice prize.

Finalists were chosen by The Good Sex Awards based on the following criteria, where relevant: Writing quality, imagination, consent, titillation, diversity, body positivity, characterization, dialogue, sex positivity and how well they fit the category. Judges were allowed to enter their own work in categories they are not judging.
