Penthouse Variations is a digest-sized magazine, which is published twelve times a year. Editorial content, which varies per month, consists of feature stories and reader letters in some of the following categories:

Anal Sex, Bisexuality, Bondage, Casual Encounters, Dominant Sexplay,
Exhibitionism, Erotic Fantasy, Female Domination, Fetishism, Group Sex, Lesbianism, Masturbation, May/December Affairs, Oral Sex, Role-Playing, Sex Toys, S&M, Spanking, Swinging, Threesomes, Tickling, Transvestism, Video Sex, Voyeurism, Watching My Wife.

Submissions to Penthouse Variations should be typed, double-spaced, and on white paper. If you are making a professional freelance submission to be published as one of our feature stories, be sure to clearly indicate this in a cover letter to the editor. Submissions to Penthouse Variations may only be made by adults eighteen years of age and older. By submitting material to Penthouse Variations, you confirm that you are eighteen years of age or older.

Penthouse Variations publishes first-person narratives in the 3,000 to 3,500 word range, containing explicit sex scenes set within a specific category and placed within the context of a realistic plot with well-developed characters. Stories should be written in past tense. Submissions written in present tense will not be considered. We do not publish poetry of any kind or purchase unsolicited photographic material.

Penthouse Variations does not accept unsolicited electronic story submissions or pay for material sent to the editorial office via e-mail. For your material to be considered for publication as a feature story, you must send a manuscript to the editorial office with your legal name and mailing address printed on the first page. Please include an SASE or a working e-mail address for a reply.

Penthouse Variations will not consider unsolicited material that has been previously published-- in whole or in part--in print, online or in any other format. Penthouse Variations purchases all rights to contracted material. Payment for an accepted, fully revised manuscript is up to $400.00. Two contributor's copies of the magazine are mailed to each author of a feature story upon publication.

Manuscripts usually take six to eight weeks to be read. They may be rejected because of the quality of the writing, a lack of category focus, or because the category described is unsuitable or oversold to us. We strongly recommend that writers read several issues of the magazine to become familiar with our categories, style and vocabulary. Free sample stories and letters may be viewed at Variations web site: http://www.variations.com

Penthouse Variations is proud of its reader-generated letter sections and less experienced writers should feel free to make submissions to the editor on this basis. Reader letters may be of any length or subject matter and may be typed or handwritten. Letters may be sent to the editorial office via surface mail or e-mail at: variations@ffn.com. Letters to Penthouse Variations magazine are assumed intended for publication and republication in all media, in whole or in part, edited or unedited. All letters become the property of Penthouse Variations. We do not make payments for letter material.

We guarantee confidentiality of all material, both letters and stories. In fact, we choose pseudonyms in order to avoid writers inadvertently revealing their identities in choosing their own.

Thank you for your interest in Penthouse Variations.
