What is soap gate?
Why should I care?
Maybe you already know what soapgate is or maybe you’re here because when you googled it, you still came up empty handed. Maybe all you could find were tweets about soapprises and people wanting to burn their eyeballs. Or just maybe you’re here by accident. In that case I’m sorry not sorry.
Long version short, a book subscription box decided to put out an 18+ smut box and with it came phallic shaped soap….with a suction cup. People were a mix of outraged and hysterical over this soap. The real issue is that they bound fan fiction and included it in the box….which if I’m not mistaken is highly illegal not to mention extremely immoral.
So why am I here talking about soapgate?

And then yesterday I fell head first down the soapgate rabbit hole. Thanks to one of my favorite fantasy authors Audrey Coulthurst – I couldn’t stop reading. Find the tweet that grabbed my attention Here.
