Ask Slutever for Jezebel

November 30, 2012

By Daido Moriyama Should you put baking utensils up your butt? Are STDs sort of NBD TBH? Read my new(ish) sex advice column, originally for Jezebel! Dear Slutever, I do not engage in any sexual activity unless my prospective partner and I both get full STD testing. In the past five years, not one woman that I dated agreed to this. Why are so many women against getting tested prior to sex? Sincerely, Alan 

Hmm… that’s odd. I’m not familiar…

Pulp Fiction

November 28, 2012

Richard Prince and the Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society, reading copies of The Catcher in the Rye, By Richard Prince Last week I hung out at Richard Prince’s private bookstore, Fulton Ryder. The store’s shelves are full of Prince’s amazing collection of old pulp novels, and the walls are covered in original pulp cover art. The books tend to favor themes of drugs and sinful lesbian affairs–two of my favorite things, especially when combined—and have catchy names like LSD Lusters, Gay…

In Defense of Hipsters

November 23, 2012

Pic @ Sandy Kim By now many of you probably know about the recent New York Times article, “How to Live Without Irony,” by Christy Wampole, since it’s been getting so much attention that it basically exploded the internet. For those of you who don’t, Wampole’s article is a superficial analysis of “hipster” culture in which she scoffs at our generation for its lack of sincerity, and for viewing the world through irony-tinted glasses. Here’s how it begins: “If irony…

November 18, 2012

Pic @ Jonathan Leder Read my latest advice column, originally for Jezebel! I’m a 26-year-old European exchange student currently studying in the US for five months. I have a (relatively new) boyfriend back home who I’m totally into, and before I left we agreed to be monogamous. But now I have a dilemma: I love Chatroulette, and I usually skip over the random masturbating men, but recently I’ve been fantasizing about not skipping over the dicks and engaging in some…

The Age of Iris

November 8, 2012

Photography by Jeff Bark, styling by Robbie Spencer   I interviewed the incredible Iris Apfel for the cover of this months issue of Dazed and Confused! “I want to make something clear,” says Iris Apfel, one Sunday afternoon in Manhattan. “Fashion is not my trade and it’s not my life. I don’t live to get dressed. I think getting dressed is wonderful and I love it, but there’s a whole big world outside of the closet.” Apfel, now 91, is…

A Brief History of Digital Love

November 5, 2012

 Photo by Daidō Moriyama I wrote this article for last month’s issue of Oyster Magazine. The theme was ‘digital,’ so I wrote a brief history of my experience with digital love. I have written posts in the past that covered similar territory, but this is an overview, of sorts. The first internet person I ever fucked was Caleb. I had recently broken up with my boyfriend of more than four years, and was looking for a rebound to help me…
