  • You read From Sh!tshow To Afterglow, and want more — much, much more.
  • It feels like your life exploded, and you're trying to figure out what to grow in the gaping hole that's leftover.
  • You're going through a pandemic divorce and need hope about what's on the other side.
  • You came of age during the heyday of Offbeat Bride, and wish there was something like that for THIS time in your life.
  • You want to use your quarantine time to actually DO something
  • You want shitshow inspo but are done with ad-plastered blogs and of algorithmically-jacked social feeds.

What members are saying...


I am in love with The Afterglow! It’s soooo much value! I’m totally blown away and impressed. From Shitshow To Afterglow has been such a friend to me. Lapdances4god has been such a friend. The anxious attachment course was so powerful and simple and helpful for me.

I am so grateful.

The Afterglow is one of my small but impactful acts of self care.

Ariel gives inspiring, challenging, and thought-provoking essays which often turn the mundane into the magical.

The Afterglow is the only content platform where I have paid for a yearly subscription, simply because I couldn't be without Ariel's raw, real, and rejuvenating writing style. Her words often shake me down to my soul, and make my personal shitshow struggles feel seen and shared. Sometimes I snort laugh, sometimes I ugly cry, but I always feel supported by whatever content Ariel creates.

NSFW self-dev is a thing

The Afterglow grants you intimate access to my most vulnerable work including essays, photos, videos. You'll get everything from NSFW self-dev, spiritual growth, and sexual exploration. You'll also get prayers and guided meditations... but I hope you're down with guided meditations that mention breathing through your taint?

Looking for a distraction? The Afterglow is the only place to listen to the my erotic audiobook, PROS BEFORE BROS, and the read deleted scenes from Sh!tshowNeed guidance? Members of The Afterglow get access to all my online courses, first and for free. The Afterglow is here to help you feel less isolated, more connected, and more in your body.

The Afterglow is real-talk inspo a new phase of your life
