By Erika Allen / A zine by London-based photographer Sam Hiscox, titled “What Is Love? Baby Don’t Hurt Me,” has had me thinking about a couple of things. 1: What could have happened to Trinidadian eurodance artist Haddaway? 2: How ambiguous the most intimate moments can seem from the outside.  What struck me about the photos was that it was virtually impossible to tell the friends from the lovers. It portrayed romantic and plutonic love with equal weight and affection.…

Dispatches from a Combat Zone: My 30s

April 6, 2015
thirty

By Cara Marsh Sheffler / photo by Jonas / When I was ten, I wanted to be Murphy Brown, knocked up by a hot war correspondent. When I was a little older, I wanted to be Candice Bergen, with her stunning, strangely pointed nose and a lion of French cinema for a husband. It was 1992 when I turned ten, which means I am old enough to know I mustn’t wait to fuck, marry, or murder my role models. I now…

A personal essay about that first time you see an ex after a breakup, by Kathleen French / When C. came over she hugged me for too long, not that it registered that way. The people you must keep around, always, are the ones that insist on hugging you for too long when the time calls for it. Then she looked me up and down and wordlessly set her things on my desk, queuing up a 1930s bluegrass station through some…

Text by Karley Sciortino / Images by Stacey Mark / Stacey Mark is one of my favorite photographers, which is probably obvious from the fact that like half of the header images on this blog are by her. Recently, Stacey let me raid through her archive (aka Macbook) for previously unseen images, and outtakes from her shoots. This is what I found :)

By Karley Sciortino / above artwork by Richard Prince / Over the past week, people have been sounding off about how Instagram censored the below photo of a fully clothed woman on her period. Dark times, huh? The photo is from a series of artworks by the Toronto-based poet and artist, Rupi Kaur. In her original artist statement, Kaur said the objective of the work was to demystify and destigmatize the female body — to make viewers “realize these are just regular, normal…

March 30, 2015

Words by Vera Papisova / Photos by Tim Barber / It’s only fitting that the first installment of “Ask a Porn Star” features one of the most badass players in the adult industry. She’s won multiple awards for her niche performances (super vague way of saying hardcore lesbian shit), is living proof that natural beauty exists in the porn world, and was crowned “America’s sweetheart of smut” by The Village Voice.

A letter from your editor, Karley Sciortino Hey Slutettes, I have some exciting news! As you can see, Slutever looks different–far more chic, don’t you think? The site was in desperate need of a makeover, since it’s barely changed since I launched Slutever back in 2007–yes, eight years ago. That’s actually insane to me.

I’m excited to announce that tomorrow I will be relaunching Slutever! There will be new columns, a new (chic) look, and some new contributors, too!

THANK YOU!
