Slutever, Vice's newest web series, takes a play from Sex in the City's book as it follows sex blogger and NYC night kitten Karley Sciortino. She ponders the most pressing issues we may encounter in dating: from what to wear on a date to how soon is too soon for anal.
In the first episode, Sciortino travels around New York City asking experts, friends, and her own mother for their pearls of relationship wisdom. She sits down with life coach/love doctor ... Read More
I can't say I never eat at a table because sometimes I go to restaurants. But at home I'm eating in my bed or on the couch because my kitchen table is the place where mail goes to get lost. Just last night I decided when I win the MegaMillions and become a half-billionaire, I'm going to get a custom made mattress that has cup holders built in. But in the slight off-chance that I don't win the lottery, I think I'll buy a pair of these Pic Nic Pants from Italian ... Read More

Between their massive environmental footprint and sketchy Fair Trade purchasing track record, Starbucks has its share of questionable business practices. Not to mention the fact that with 16,000 stores worldwide, they're edging out local businesses at a Walmart-level rate. Sometimes "evil" corporations can do good though, and that's just what Starbucks did this week.
During a Q&A session following the annual shareholders meeting last week, Jonathan ... Read More
Meet Kate McKinnon, the newest featured player to join Saturday Night Live's cast. In light of Paul Brittain's departure a few weeks ago, Lorne Michaels has been auditioning new cast members. With BUST crush Kristen Wiig's contract potentially ending after this season, it's pretty rad to see a new woman enter the ranks.
McKinnon has performed with the Upright Citizens Brigade and starred in the first three seasons of Logo's "Big Gay Sketch Show." She's ... Read More
In case there was any doubt left in our minds that Republican lawmakers viewed women as little more than baby vessels, this week Arizona's Senate passed what they're calling a "wrongful birth" bill. This legislation allows doctors to opt out of informing pregnant women about prenatal complications because such information could lead to an abortion, a totally legal medical procedure. In addition, if shit hits the fan (you know, like the expectant mother dies) as a ... Read More
Late last month, 800 battleground state voters were asked how they felt about Congress's war on women, and the results are in: they're pissed off!
Among those polled in 8 battleground states, a near consensus exists that women should have access to birth control, that insurers should cover it, and that the decision to use birth control is a private one. Kind of a no brainer, considering nearly every woman will use some form of contraceptive in her ... Read More
The big day has arrived, and I think this year we need it more than ever. In light of the recent anti-woman three ring circus that is our political system, it's important that we celebrate all the wonderful things about being female (in all its glorious shapes and forms.)
Check out this hilarious statement on slut-shaming through the art of .gifs over at Ann Friedman's blog. Gifs are my absolute favorite way to express myself on the Internet. Thanks, ... Read More

Daena Title, Dirty Fighter, 2010. Oil on canvas, 48” x 48”.
Barbie has inspired art from the likes of Andy Warhol and Karl Lagerfeld, both of whom are lauded for their doll-themed works on the Barbie website. Painter Daena Title probably won’t be added to that list anytime soon. In her latest series, “Drown the Dolls,” Barbie is murdered at the hands of anonymous prepubescent girls.
Title spent three years ... Read More
President Obama called Sandra Fluke, the woman who testified about contraception in front of Congress and was called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh, to make sure she's okay.
“He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women,” Sandra Fluke, a third-year law student said. “And what was really personal for me was that he said to tell my parents that they should be proud. And that meant a ... Read More
I miss Downton Abbey so much already. It's gonna be AGES before it comes back and I'm pretty much inconsolable. I want to feel as infinite as the final minutes of the Christmas special made me feel every moment of my stupid life. Is that too much to ask??? Am I flying too close to the sun?
Here are some songs Internet People wrote inspired by DT Abbs (wow I thought that would sound better than it did sorry.) I am listening to them on repeat as I slowly rock ... Read More
