A note on the sexy Chivers…

As many of you know, the Chivers are leaving tomorrow for Indiana University to hang with out little sis one last time and meet our Indiana Chivers. Leo, myself, and Patty also spent last week in San Francisco. So I found myself rushing through the Chivette submissions over the past couple days and had to stop myself.

The ‘Sexy Chivers’ has become so big that rushing through hundreds of submissions is a complete disservice to our amazing Chivettes. They each deserve careful consideration and attention. Usually to get things exactly right there’s a lot of back-and-forth between the girls believe it or not. It’s the day that I start treating the Chivettes like a candy store that it will surely fail. So there will be no ‘Sexy Chivers’ this week.

That said, based on what I see in my inbox, next Friday’s Sexy Chivers will have been well worth the waitโ€ฆ to say the very least. Chivettes, submit your photos right here. We’ll still bring you all our staple posts tomorrow. Our Chivers made some great photobombing runs and I’ll try to make it an early DAR.

Chive On,

    whew, I sent my best work yet to the chive last week ๐Ÿ™‚ Usually, I get a little note from John that he got my photos and I hadn't heard anything yet. As much as I love the SC, I also appreciate that the Chive is determined to do it the right way. Chive on!

    • Yeppers

      Although it IS nice that Chive is trying to give each girl thier due by making sure to go through each and every picture… Doesn't it seem just as kindly to go through the emails in a timely manner?

      If I were to take my truck to the dealer for work and he said "Well, i can have it for you in a week, or I can do the work right and have it for you in 2 weeks" I think I'd say "well Mr. Dealer, I want both, Do the work right AND do it timely"

      yes, I know that I am paying for one service (the dealer) and not the other (theChive) so the comparison isn't entirely valid, however I DO think that the Chive owes it to the Chivettes (not to us) to go through their photos and emails in a timely manner.

      • Steveystevesteve

        Did you just compare those gorgeous girls that furnish us with amazing photos on a weekly basis to a truck that needs work? Chive and Chivettes, you take all the time you need to keep those posts as incredible as they always are. You both fuckin rock.

        Also, thank you Denise. We all look forward to putting a face and/or tush to the name next week.

        • Yeppers

          Actually no, according to my analogy, the chivettes would be the owners of the truck and the weekly chivettes post would be the truck needing work. The Chivettes take the time and courage to send in pictures of themselves. and in my opinion, theChive has a duty to them, and that is to sort through them to make a quality post AND to do it in a timely manner.

        • Justin Hall

          This ain't Google, dude. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of submissions they get, but I'm pretty sure it's in the hundreds, if not thousands. That shit can get time consuming, and I'm pretty sure they don't have that many resources.

          I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure I've never had to go through a hundred pictures of half-naked women exposing their ass and boobs into the early morni — oh … ah, nevermind..

          • Yeppers

            haha, exactly, compared to my job… can't say I feel very sorry for them ๐Ÿ™‚

  • ABBA

    Uh oh, this is starting a trend. The second time in a month….

    • pacer

      no it's not. the last time it was cancelled was over a month ago. the Chive isn't obligated to bring us a SC every Friday. Does your favorite TV show air every week year-round?

      • Lindsay

        As a chivette, I don't agree with ABBA at all. John doesn't owe us a sexy chiver every friday. We just think he does. The chivettes are his creation. we're lucky he cooked it up in the first place. More and more, the Chivers seem to be a little bit spoiled I've noticed even as the chive as escalated its original content and # of posts in general. You'll also notice that the SC has 70-80 photos in it now rather than 25 when it first started. But to me, as a girl, deal with it. I'd rather have John's full attention than a POOR PRODUCT. and that's what the key is here.

        • Dylan

          Well said Lindsay!! ๐Ÿ˜€

          You all want good, original, and sexy Chivettes right? Then give John the time and patience to put out a good product. There is enough porn to spank to on the interwebs while you are waiting… :p

    • GotchaBUDDAYYY

      It's happening a lot lately, reason being is it takes a while to photoshop "Chive On!" on to 40 pictures to add in with the 20 real ones.

      • maker's mark

        if anybody actually believes what GotchaBUDDAYY just said up there ^^^^ you have to first go thru the last 4 weeks sexy chivers. to say the least, they are amazing.

        oh, and last week's SC had 80 photos, not 60.

        • GotchaBUDDAYYY

          So they have to photoshop 40 to add to 40, don't you think it's a strange coincidence that the majority of the images have already shown up on different sites without "Chivery" written on them?

          You're smarter than that, Mark.

          • ABBA

            Not sure how the process works, but I get the impression that maybe they email the Sexy Chivers back and ask for an additional photo with "Chive On" or something. From a business stand point it makes sense, why let another website copy your picture and then post on that site. In a way the "Chive On" comments act as a trademark. But some do look photoshoped.

            • DistractedIndividual

              They do ask for another shot with the chivette holding a Chive sign or written on them. They told me that with my first ever submission, it's so people don't think they just go through people's FB pics and copy sexy pics. Sometimes they will add in the subject content or body of the email that says where their from or a note to the chivers.

          • destin

            I've never seen a single girl with 'chivery' written or photoshopped on them. I have seen 'hi chive' 'hi chivers' or just 'chive'

            you must be new here

        • Skylar

          You think they got permission for Banksy's shit?

      • Dan-0

        I found out about this site when someone told me my fiancee was on the site. Someone took her photo and wrote "<3 Chive" on it. She'd never seen the site before. I didn't think it was that big of a deal, just a bikini shot… but still…

    • Jimmy5923

      I heard everything on the internet is exclusive to the person who originally uploaded the material…That's just what I heard. Get real, 95% of us know that some of them are just random pic of a hot girl that some dude or chick found on google and put "<3 chive" on it in comic sans and submitted the pic. And I'm pretty sure it's not theChive taking the time to do it.

      • Justin Hall

        How about to make it easier for John, and to verify that these submissions are of real Chievettes, we make sure all SCs have some variation of the "Chive greeting" actually inked on the lady submitting it?

        I mean, that's the only way we can make sure it's the real shit. And for the ones that are probably fake … well, we can always put that in the DAR or Hump Day posts. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • landon

    from a dude pov, I like me my chivettes. but if i put myself in the Chivette's heels, I wouldn't want to be overlooked or bypassed because John is pressed for time. all good

  • FeeFeeG

    I hope my picture make it in Sexy Chivers… ๐Ÿ˜‰ <3

    • Said it

      Just ask God. If, in your opinion, he can help a cancer patient, he can surely get you into a half-naked website post for men to fap to.

    • Shawn35

      I hope yours do as well FeeFee

    • abb

      Me three!

  • ERN23


    Give me your email password, I'll sort through them for you!

    • wtf is this

      meee tooo, might not be done with them till next week either though

  • Brian


  • VTN

    I agree!

  • baker

    the general message i got here was that john is more concerned with creating a good product than he is bringing us a SC every week. That is 100% the right thing to do.

  • Anonymous

    I’ll accept it, but I dont have to like it.

  • Leonard

    So Sad…

  • taylor

    you do plenty, chive. I remember in the good old days when John would cancel the sexy chivers because he was drunk. it's the charm of the site. I'll take that over a corporation any day. what am i going to do, go back to the IAC-owned College Humor and sludge thru their slideshows?

  • boatdrinks4u2

    let me officially apply for the next available "unpaid intern" position to help you sort through all of those photos… i have a great eye and excellent communication skills.

  • BeccaB86

    I think I had a 9th grade English teacher whose motto was "quality, not quantity." I really didn't like the bitch, but she makes a good point.

    • abb

      I'm gonna give the bitch a point. Bitches love points.

  • Rightclicksaveas

    I am thinking sexy Chivettes mobile … while on campus any hotties you find throw them a Chive shirt or sticker snap a pic and upload. Great substitute

    • DistractedIndividual

      FAIL…. A Chivette is a femal Chiver. Thus they must actually know what the site is and visit it ona regular basis to be considered a Chivette.

  • jared

    Well, I suppose I can just drink and chat with my wife….this ONE time.

  • Dante

    We'll be waiting for the Sexy Chivvetes….They deserve to have their photos checked out thoroughly and not overlooked due to lack of time….

  • ROK247

    the chive is looking for an intern. please own a liquor store. and the apartment above the liquor store. and be a super hot ginger.

  • TheDarkKnight

    I'm willing to overlook this transgression if you are willing to bring back "MILF Sunday"

    Thumbs if you're with me on this ——————>

  • funkyf

    Everytime the Chive misses a sexy chivers post, God kills a kitten….

  • Wayne

    Dear John,
    I started Chiving around the 1mill hits a day mark, I was there when you first asked “are there any sexy chivers among us?” I remember when you decided to get WASTED and skip a SC. You and the lovely ladies made more than up for it the following friday. Thank you and our beloved sexy Chivettes for all the awesome you bring!

    DGAF what the haters say.

  • Ron

    Boo frickin hoo! John, quit your whining and MAN UP. Most of the jobs out there are tougher than yours, I'd hate to see you have to actually work for a living. Actually I would love to see that.

    • Nickincollege

      Who are you to say what real work is? Do you think what he does involves no effort at all?

      • Ron

        Not NO effort but it involves very little effort. Sorry, whining about not having the time to go through pictures doesn't fly with me.

  • BloodScrubber

    Think of it as Chive foreplay. Enjoy the longing because you know how it will end anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Jenn

    I submit photos all time. still waiting to see myself up there. maybe next time though. my fingers are crossed!=D
