Happy 2018 my loves!! I hope you all had a restful holiday season and are starting the new year on the right foot.
This time of year is particularly inspiring to me because not only does it represent another year passed, but it’s also my blog anniversary!! Red Hot Suz has officially been running for exactly two years, and I’m so delighted that you all have been along for the ride. From everyone who has shared my blog posts, to those who support me on Patreon, you mean the world to me. I can’t believe that I have the honour of writing for you every day. Last year, I ran a giveaway for my blogiversary, but this year I’m saving the giveaway for a special time in the Spring… ?
Despite no giveaway happening, I’ve looked back on the past year to document my favourite moments and looked into the future of the year ahead to write out my goals, motivations and manifestations. Enjoy!

Inspired by Kate’s wonderful sex and orgasm spreadsheets, I’ve tallied up some statistics on the people I slept with and where I slept with them! I’m planning on keeping track of this more in 2018, so I’ll have more detailed information for you next year.
I slept with exactly 30 people, 80% (24) were men, 13% (4) were women and 7% (2) were non-binary folx. 50% of them had beards (it’s a Thing), and all of the women were femmes. I’ve met 46% (14) of my partners through Tinder, 34% (10) through social media (Twitter, Instagram and Reddit), and 20% (6) through IRL meetings. I’m surprised at how many peeps I met through socials this year, I rarely think of social media as a way of meeting people to bone, but here I am!
I had sex in two countries, 8 different cities and 22 different locations. The most memorable being a hilltop LA house owned by an actress, a firefly-lit waterfall, on top of an American Eagle pool float and at the Buddhist farm.
2018 Goals, Motivations and Manifestations
I’m filled with inspiration for the new year and am ready to get shit done. 2018 is going to be my year baby, and you bet I have some high aspirations…
More interviews, podcasts and press stuff! I did a couple press-y things this year, like being interviewed on the Dildorks and Take Back Your Sex podcasts, but I’m looking to channel more of that promotional energy in 2018. I want to do more podcasts, be featured online or in print and start getting my name out there more!!
More collaborations with other creators! Collabs, multi-blogger post series, roundtables at conferences, smut and sharing more of my friends content in 2018! Also more photshoots!! I want to work with more creators to create great, relevant content that will support each other and help share our work with the world.
More website traffic! Comparing my December 2017 stats to my December 2016 stats, my monthly traffic has more than quadrupled! I’m incredibly proud of how much I’ve grown within a year, so I’m hoping to match and hopefully beat those stat comparisons for 2018.
More money! With blog revenue (sponsored posts, Instagram ads, banner ads etc) combined with my Patreon revenue, this little blog has made some decent moula in 2017. For this upcoming year, I hope to double my income from blog and smut endeavours. Let’s make it rain!!
A rocking website re-launch! If you hadn’t heard, I’m in the middle of rebranding my blog! It’s all happening behind the scenes at the moment as I’m doing it for my undergrad multimedia thesis. I’m so excited to share my website with y’all that I’m planning a big relaunch party for March in Hamilton, Ontario! I’d love to see you there and will be giving out more details closer to the date.
Nightly & morning routines + a good sleep schedule. I’m a night owl, and some recent bad habits have lead me to have a really horrible sleep schedule. I’ve been staying up until 4 am (sometimes later) the past month, and need to get back into a proper bedtime schedule. I’d also like to develop a waking up and going to bed routine that will include: brushing my teeth, washing my face, and drinking water. I know it sounds simple, but I’m horrible at keeping routines and I’d like to do this.
Focus on health. My physical goals as a body positive person are based on my health. I want to put more healthy and nutritious meals in my body this year, and take vitamin supplements to plug in the nutritional gaps in my diet. I want to gain strength, in my arms and booty specifically, and have my current clothes fit more comfortably.
Organization. I used to be a very organized person as a kid, but lately, my brain has been all over the place (so much so that I’m thinking of getting checked for ADD). I want to clean my room more often, relearn to focus, plan out my weeks and days better, and keep spreadsheets on sex, orgasms, dates and income for 2018.
Sex & Relationship Goals
Mindful orgasms. I used to do really sexy nights for myself, where I would light candles, get high and romance myself. In 2017 I haven’t done that whatsoever! I want to have more mindful masturbation sessions with myself, and going beyond “need to sleep” or “quick n horny” orgasms.
Fewer one-time-bangs, more consistent meaningful relationships. I had a TON of one-night shebangs this past year (a lot were due to travelling, but anyway). I want more consistent partners so I can teach people about how I best receive pleasure and learn about their bodies too! Plus, I want to get to a point where I’m laid at least once every two weeks. That’s reasonable, yeah?
Explore d/s, and dd/lg. While my 2017 sex experiences have been definitely more kinky than the average joe, I’m yearning for the opportunity to dig deeper into my kinks and submission this upcoming year. Ideally, I’d love to experience a dd/lg relationship alongside a romantic one, but I’d be happy exploring it through a long-term, casual connection.
Date a longer term partner. Despite recently breaking up with the longest term partner I’ve had, that relationship wasn’t something that fulfilled any type of real, romantic and long-term connection my brain and heart have been craving. I want to meet someone this year who can be a real partner to me, who will uplift and love me. My heart is ready for a person to care for.
Let me know your 2017 accomplishments, milestones, trials and turbulences! What do you have planned in 2018 to make your life and your sex life even better??
