Dating and pop culture website seeks freelance writers

Nerve, a Manhattan-based online magazine dedicated to sex, relationships, pop culture and edgy news, is looking for paid freelance writers. Specifically, here's what they're looking for:

"We're constantly on the hunt for smart, readable content in the form of smart five-item lists and longer personal essays. Occasionally, we do break the mold and throw in an infographic or two, but chiefly, those two items are what we're looking for. Typically, we like pitches pegged to some kind of new or upcoming book, film, or movie release, but they don't always need to be -- we're also interested in pitches addressing the 2012 presidential race or other U.S. events. We do eschew international coverage, and we're trying to steer clear of anything too gratuitous or "porn-y." Also, what makes Nerve unique is that we look at love & sex just as much as pop culture -- we're not a straight romance site, and we're not a straight pop culture site: we look at where and how those two areas intersect."
