Now here's a sex toy that will make you feel good for multiple reasons: 10% of proceeds from Natural Contours' Petite Pink Ribbon vibrator will go to Breast Cancer Action (BCAction.org) in the United States. BCA, a grassroots breast cancer advocacy and education organization, does not accept donations from companies contributing to the cancer epidemic, and unlike most sex toys, Natural Contours' products are all free of phthalates (chemicals used to soften hard ...

Sew Mo's Alice Bag is so insanely perfect, I'm considering writing a song about it. I found it during one of my many frenzied hunts for the perfect oversized tote (I just can't get down with those jingly-jangly leather logo bags), and I seriously feel like I've stumbled on the Holy Grail here: Earth-friendly interfacing, lining and interior, with the perfect decorative buttons and hidden pockets galore. I lugged it with me on a recent San Francisco trip, and not ... Read More

Dubious Distinction

BY debbie in Feminizzle

Did you know that October was Domestic Violence Awareness month? Neither did I, but I think I'll celebrate this year by not going to Nevada, which, according to a recent study, ranks #1 in the rate of women murdered by men for the second year in a row. In the annual report from the Violence Policy Center (VPC), which analyzed 2006 homicide data, Nevada, with a rate of Nevada, rate of 3.27 murders per 100,000 is ranked highest, followed by South Carolina at #2 ...

Senor Kaos You Rock Too!

BY Callie in General

I am ashamed to say I didn't remember who Shirley Chisholm was. Any of you BUST-ies know who all these rockin' women are. I had to look a couple of them up. Should I just hang my head in shame or blame the school system? Or maybe it was all that summer weeding I did that wrecked my memory. Here are some others I had to look up: Elleen Collins, Althea Gibson, Shirley Franklin and I am still not sure who Couture Angels are, all I can find is a marketing ... Read More

Vivian Girls

BY Laurie in General

Vivian Girls Self-titled (In The Red) Destined to become a cult favorite, the Brooklyn-based all-gal rock trio Vivian Girls (with their name culled from the beloved Henry Darger) may remain just that. With jangly guitars and driving beats that sound like they were recorded in someone's basement (on a four-track, in 1972), it's hard to imagine this self-titled debut enticing the mainstream, though the DIY recording quality was surely a conscious decision. The ... Read More
