When it comes to teenagers and their attitude toward cunnilingus, there’s a substantial divide between real-life and fiction. This is real life:“He doesn’t go down on me...He doesn’t want to. And I’ve never asked.”This is fiction:“‘When I lick you,’ he said, ‘I want you splayed out on a table like my own personal feast.’”Real teenage girls voiced their experiences with sex in Peggy Orenstein’s 2015 New York Times bestseller, Girls & Sex — and according to the book, their voices weren’t being heard anywhere else. These girls,...
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 1981 musical Cats was not the first production to feature a cast of dancers dressed in cat costumes. Nearly one hundred years earlier, a ballet called Katrina made its debut at the Empire Theatre in London. Arranged by choreographer Kattie Lanner and set to music by composer Leopold Wenzel, it featured two intertwined stories. The first concerned the love affairs of a young student. The second — and far more interesting — took place in the Kingdom of Cats. Katrina starred Miss Ada...

  Poor Elmo.  Sesame Street's most naive and trusting character has been laid off in a video taking aim at Donald Trump's military-heavy, culture-light budget, which proposes slashing funding to a number of community and cultural agencies, including the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting allocates its funding amongst public broadcasters nationwide, including PBS, NPR, as well as local broadcasters across the country. Although Sesame Street has actually now moved to HBO, PBS is where Elmo and his friends got their big break, not...
Renaissance woman Lane Moore — the ukulele-slinging musician, comedian and sex writer — is back with a new video entitled “Be My Rachel Maddow.” You may know her from the queer shot-by-shot remake of Fiona Apple’s "Criminal" or from her stand-up, but either way, get excited. Dressed in teenybopper style — pigtails, bright purple eye shadow, and a bold lip — she croons, “Be my Rachel Maddow.” Saying you could be a boy or a girl, so long as you resemble Rachel and talk politics to her,...
  The Animators is a novel about relationships--relationships with your friends, with your family, with the art you create, with yourself--and the amount of work that goes into maintaining each one. Sharon Kisses, the protagonist, is at odds with herself at the outset of the novel. A freshman in college, she’s quiet and reserved, the direct opposite of Mel Vaught, a girl in her classes who quickly becomes her best friend and creative partner. Ten years after the two first meet, she and Mel are on the...
Julia may take a while to respond, and probably won’t make eye contact, but as Sesame Street fairy Abby Cadabby would say, “That’s just Julia being Julia.” In its 47th season, the veteran PBS show will introduce its first muppet with autism, a redhead 4-year-old named Julia. She carries her favorite stuffed rabbit with her and likes to draw, sing and play with her friends Abby, Elmo and Big Bird.    This follows her appearance in print and digital materials as part of the “See Amazing in All...
When Amy Winehouse first came to the U.S. in 2007 to promote her brand new album, Back to Black, we sensed she was someone special. Of course, we had no idea how massive her career would become, or how tragically her life would end. But even back then, she had that spark that made us so excited to introduce her to the readers BUST Magazine asap. Enjoy this Flashback Friday reprint of the chat Amy had with our editor Molly Simms almost exactly ten years ago....

Things have been a little stressful in the United States recently, what with Trump’s latest budget proposal announcement, which promises to slash $9 billion from the US Department of Education. It’s understandable if you need a pick-me-up to distract you from the current state of the country. Look no further, because we now present to you: a toad in hats. This little guy kept coming back to Chris Newsome’s porch this past summer, so the Alabama resident decided to make his new pal some homemade hats....
