Last week's parties were an absolute blast! Our sexy V-Day crafting party at Babeland Soho was packed to the gills, and over 75 people danced, drank, crafted, and snacked the night away at our Love & Sex Issue release party at Bar Matchless. Thanks again to DJ Ali, the crafty gals of Tatty Devine, and our sponsor Pretzel Crisps for providing us with a pretzel and dip bar to keep us going throughout the night. We can't wait for the next par-tay...but in the meantime, enjoy these party pics by photog extraordinaire Sarja Hasan. Some BUST fans gettin' down with Jason. Read More

If you missed the very first PAJAMARAMA! night at Videology in Brooklyn, then you missed a hair-raising good time as BUST editors Molly Simms and Emily Rems presented the John Waters hit Hairspray.  Luckily, PAJAMARAMA! is back with another opportunity for you to enjoy a classic slumber party movie handpicked by an awesome lady.  This month, Salon senior writer and author Mary Elizabeth Williams has selected Earth Girls Are Easy, the weird and wonderful 1988 sci-fi sex comedy with a killer cast (Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey, Julie Brown, Damon Wayans).

Winter: it’s the most unsexy time of the year. Because nothing deflates a lady boner faster than a stomach full of sugar cookies and a house full of family. Yowza! Luckily for cold-averse folks like me, BUST is teaming up with awesome sex-toy boutique Babeland for a cheeky holiday-themed crafting party. Stop by their SoHo outpost (at 43 Mercer St. Read More
The reference to “six granddaughters” in the title of this dark, complex novel is deceiving: two are dead. One dies as an infant and pulls a shroud of everlasting grief over the family, and the other narrates the entire novel from beyond the grave while she floats in an afterlife. At the heart of the novel is Cecilia, a beautiful poet who is perceived as being the most talented and attractive among the granddaughters. Nonetheless, she is plagued by many demons, not the least of which is abuse at the hands of a mysterious man. Read More
Your friend is cooking up a Halloween costume that involves cardboard, a yard of metal sheeting, and a dozen wire hangers; it may look cool, but there’s a good chance she won’t be able to sit down or hold her drink all night. You, on the other hand, will be sitting pretty in this simple mask, which you can make from household supplies in only an hour or two. Keep the rest of your costume minimal—and keep your hands free for holding your beer. Read More
  In the three and a half years since Bat for Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) released Two Suns, her brand of vaguely goth chamber pop has taken off—just ask Florence + the Machine, Zola Jesus, or Grimes. Those ladies are wonderful, of course, but we’ve missed Bat for Lashes’ singularly weird beauty. On her third album, The Haunted Man, Khan’s talent is out in full force.

  Tomorrow marks the official start of the fall season, and I, for one, am super excited, and not just because my birthday is two weeks away. I live for fall: smelling pumpkin spice lattes and hot chocolate wafting through the air, while wearing my favorite leather jacket, black jeans and boots. Oh, how I adore boots! To celebrate the start of fall, the ladies here at BUST shared their favorite (and for some, their least favorite) things about the season.     Debbie, Editor-In-Chief: I hate everything about fall. Fall = fail.
