Talking Feminism with Spare Rib editor Marsha Rowe

July 30, 2013

Marsha Marsha Marsha Marsha Rowe is a feminist icon. In 1972, she and pal Rosie Boycott founded Spare Rib, a feminist magazine based in the UK that went on to become a bible of second wave feminism. Marsha was the magazine’s first editor and oversaw all of its radical glory; it was the first magazine to talk about female sexuality, it was frank, funny, intellectual, and it had the mission of making living conditions better for women. Spare Rib (get it?) ran until ‘93,…

Vogue, and the Powerful Female Nude

July 25, 2013

Myla Dalbesio being her super sexy self, shot by the wonderful Stacey Mark People freak out whenever a female celeb gets naked. They tend to freak out even harder if said female doesn’t posses Hollywood’s idea of a “perfect” body. I wrote an article for Vogue where I talk about this in slightly more detail. You can read it HERE! :)

Ask Slutever: Ask a Whore

July 23, 2013

Belle de Jour Once in a while I’ll enlist a friend of mine to act as a “guest expert” and answer some of my Ask Slutever questions for me. This is usually because I’m either too busy, or too lazy, or sometimes literally just because I don’t feel like doing it myself. No offense, but after a while I get bored of reading though essentially the same emails over and over–“Why doesn’t my boyfriend want to have sex with me…

Is Tropical: Sex, Boobs and Guns

July 17, 2013

London band Is Tropical have the best music videos of any band today, hands down. They also make really great music, but that’s besides the point. I used to share a home with these three musical scumbags–Simon Milner, Gary Barber and Dom Apa–back when we were all grungy slobs living in squats around London. Little did I know that one day these three lovely lads would grow up to be indie celebrities. I’m so proud. Also, note Simon rocking a…

Painting Flowers

July 14, 2013

“That thing you just did–yeah, that! Do that again!” Recently, the comment section of this blog has been peppered with quite a bit of anger and criticism. This is nothing new, to be fair. Anyone who’s ever posted anything on the internet is familiar with the equation: Person + Internet = Rage. However, lately there’s been a lot of, “This blog has changed!” and “What happened to the old Karley?” I have to agree; this blog has changed. When I started…

Girls Girls Girls?

July 11, 2013

What’s it like being a chick in the Big Apple? Sex and the City made a great effort to tackle this complicated question some fifteen years ago now. More recently, Girls has taken up the cause. However, if you’ve seen both of those shows and you still don’t feel like you’ve got enough info about what life is like as a vagina-clad human being living in NYC, then you should check out the e-book GIRLS?, recently published by Thought Catalog.…

Domestic Bliss

July 8, 2013

Above is a short film I made last year with my filmmaking pal, Robert Semmer. It’s called Domestic Bliss and it originally aired on Channel 4 in the UK, as part of their Random Acts short film series. You will see–if you decide to devote three minutes of your short life to watching this–that there is a mildly intimate moment toward the end of the video between myself and a young boy. The actor’s name is Lawrence and he’s the…

Getting Dirty with Bobbi Starr

July 4, 2013

Yum… :) “Pornography allows us to explore our deepest, most forbidden selves. Porn dreams of eternal fires of desire, without fatigue, incapacity, aging, or death.” – Camille Paglia Bobbi Starr is one of the best and biggest porn stars today. She’s also an intelligent, funny, sex-positive feminist. Duh, all the best post stars are! You may remember that I interviewed Bobbi in the “Orgasms: Where R They?” episode of the VICE Slutever show. Bobbi also does a lot of work…
