Sex and Drugs

February 26, 2011

Photo by Jonnie Craig Hamilton Morris is Vice’s resident drug expert and the man behind the psychedelic documentary series, Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia. He is a student of science, a doer of things and an asker of questions. He is also extremely physically attractive, as is clearly visible from the photo above. Last week, Hamilton gave a talk at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts about the pharmacology of aphrodisiacs. I’ve taken Viagra a couple times, but the only thing…

February 23, 2011

In case you are not aware, it’s Lady Porn Day on the internet. LPD is a blogosphere wide project organized by a girl called Rachel from the blog Rabbit Write. Basically she’s hand picked lots of female bloggers that she likes and arranged for us to all blog about porn today, in order to encourage woman around the world to think about porn and masturbation freely and positively, even though it’s generally thought of as “taboo” or whatever. This is…

Virtual Pop Star Inspires Terrorism

February 20, 2011

Do you know about Hatsune Miku, the virtual Japanese megastar? Well I wrote an article about her recently for the cover of the UK music/fashion magazine Clash, and OMG I have never received such a violent response to anything I’ve written in my entire life. This is even worse than my mother’s reaction after I wrote that cum taste test article back in 2008. The feature, along with the accompanying photoshoot which was conceived and styled by Matthew Josephs, instigated…

Matthew Stone <3

February 18, 2011

If you are in NYC this evening, you should come to the Allan Nederpelt gallery in Brooklyn. My friend, artist Matthew Stone, is in a group show, and the opening is from 6-8. I’ve interviewed Matthew about his visionary photographs and semi-staged rituals a couple of times, and you can read those HERE and HERE if you like. Here’s is a selection of some of my favorite works by Mr. Stone. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z47b8F6tGFg&w=520&h=323] And a preview of this evening:

Dating 101: A Stripper

February 16, 2011

Why She Knows: Julieta has worked as a stripper in London for 8 years. Men and women regularly pay huge amounts of cash just to be near her and watch her take her clothes off, which makes me think she must have at least a fraction of a clue what turns people on. When she’s not working the pole Julieta works as a yoga teacher, a DJ, and an events organizer. Stripping funded her her way through college, and paid…

V-Day

February 14, 2011

Are you depressed because it’s Valentines Day and no one loves you? I thought so. But cheer up, will ya? V-day is just an excuse for #tragic people to grope each other in public. Lovey-dovey people are lame and annoying and normally wear fleece. Trust me, you don’t want to be one of them. Because what’s important to remember about love is, if you feel like you need to parade it in front of people–if your affection needs an AUDIENCE–then…

Interview with a Pee Slave

February 11, 2011

Urophilia is a pretty vanilla fetish. Sure, peeing on your boyfriend can be super hot and weird and fun, but on the grand scale of sexual deviancy it’s like a four. Bladder desperation, on the other hand, is a paraphilia related to the piss fetish that’s a lot more extreme/edgy. This is when people get off on being forced to hold their pee in for long periods of time, sometimes to the point of causing “an accident.” Some pee slaves…

Squallyoaks RIP Party

February 9, 2011

Bye! Again! I’ve been living in New York paying rent, owning a cell phone, and being an adult for 8 full months now. Time flies! However I still keep in touch with my ex-squatmates back in London, as I just don’t feel complete unless I’m up to date with every detail of their squatty lives–everything from what janky warehouse they’re currently occupying, to how many bumps of K they each consume daily. Aww, I really miss those maniacs! Anyway, soon…

Dating 101: Susie Orbach

February 6, 2011

Why She Knows: Susie Orbach is an acclaimed British psychotherapist, and the author of lots of influential books on feminist theory and how us girls view our bodies and ourselves, including Fat is a Feminist Issue and The Impossibility of sex. I had the pleasure of meeting Susie in person last year when we both participated in a round table discussion about SEX for Bon International magazine. (I blogged about it, you can read it HERE.) During the talk she…
