By BUST Magazine  In Music  On Mar 22, 2019

EX HEXIt’s Real(Merge) It’s Real, Ex Hex’s second album, is energetic without being messy, and it’s indicative of the band’s approach to music: big and raucous, but carefully crafted.

We're bringing you this Q&A from the Sex Files in our March/April 2019 print issue, featuring advice from sexologist Dr. Carol Queen. My partner and I are interested in chastity play, but after a day or two the device slips off his genitalia. We’ve bought many devices and always find the same problem. Because he is a “grower,” the size of his penis can vary.

After getting approved for an interactive badge at South By Southwest, the sprawling music, film, and education festival that takes over Austin, Texas during spring break, I was pretty stoked to hit up all the panels. Once I planned which panels and sessions I’d cover for my day job, I scanned the schedule to see which other events I didn’t want to miss. Translation: events tailored to my thirst for female empowerment, intersectional activism, and inspiration. While I wasn’t able to hit up every session I would have… Read more

Apps, Friend Dates, And One Woman's Quest To Form Bonds IRL

By BUST Magazine  In Living  On Mar 21, 2019

How many friends do you have on social media? How many likes have you gotten and given today? And of the hundreds of online acquaintances who know your lunch was lit (insert fire emoji here), how many of them have you actually had lunch with? In this increasingly online world, it sometimes feels like the only real connection going on is the one between our phones and Wi-Fi providers. After getting fed up with measuring my own self-esteem via social media interactions, I bowed out—save for the occasional rant on Twitter… Read more

Victorians had plenty of advice on how and when a lady should offer a word of gratitude, especially when that gratitude was in response to a service rendered by a gentleman stranger. Some believed that it wasn’t fashionable for ladies to thank strange gentlemen for small courtesies—e.g., holding doors for them or giving up their seats on a crowded public conveyance. To do so was considered unpolished and countrified. Better that ladies say nothing and accept such little services as their due. Others vehemently… Read more
In a un-American fashion, Netflix canceled One Day at a Time, a family sitcom featuring Hollywood royalty, Rita Moreno, and a predominantly Latinx cast. After three solid seasons, the show’s ending came at the worst time, when Latinx communities are constantly being villainized by the United States president. Former showrunner, Gloria Calderón Kellett tweeted a hopeful objective to find a new home for the series and for the relatable characters, many of whom are strong-willed women whose lives and struggles are rarely… Read more

THE PERENNIAL “IT” GIRL SHARES HER EVERYDAY BEAUTY FAVES Chloë Sevigny has been a style icon since, oh, 1992, when she was just a wee baby intern at Sassy magazine rocking an overalls dress and a patchwork hat.

The Source of Self-Regard: Selected Essays, Speeches, and MeditationsBy Toni Morrison(Knopf) This is not an introduction to Toni Morrison’s work, nor is it written for readers unfamiliar with her novels. Instead, The Source of Self-Regard serves best as a complement to the Pulitzer-Prize winner’s collected works. Through essays, speeches, and meditations organized into three parts, Morrison tackles race, writing, revision, feminism, and the connections between art and politics. She also tempts readers to explore her… Read more

By Sam Jones  In Living  On Mar 19, 2019

At some point in life we all experience various levels of suffering –and regardless of which faith you follow, most people can agree that suffering is simply part of being human. But, is there a way for us to grow from suffering? I wrote this very candid piece for friends, family and strangers who may be suffering right now; hopefully knowing that you’re not alone can make the devastation a bit more bearable. It was my senior year of High School when I, in all of my naiveté, chose DARE during what started out as an… Read more
This past Monday, the ladies of Berlin were able to purchase discounted metro, bus, and tram tickets for a good cause. The Frauenticket was available for 21% less than usual (€5.50 instead of €7) to highlight the fact that on average, German women earn 21% less than their male counterparts. This particular statistic is higher than many other European countries. The Guardian reports: “While Italy and Belgium have an average difference between men’s and women’s income of less than 5%, Germany’s figure means it joins… Read more
RX: A Graphic MemoirBy Rachel Lindsay(Grand Central Publishing) RX took shape in a New York mental hospital where author Rachel Lindsay was being treated for a manic episode courtesy of bipolar disorder. And though it looks like it probably took forever to complete, it’s a quick, engrossing read. Beginning at an ironic job selling ads for depression meds—“I found myself passing for sane in the most extreme scenario I could imagine”—Lindsay’s simple but elaborate artwork expertly illustrates the undefined areas and… Read more
Yumi Nagashima (@yumicomedy) is the kind of comedian who continues to surprise. The Japanese-born Vancouver-based standup's brand of observational humor and deadpan delivery is delighting audiences nationwide. A YouTube clip from one of her sets has recently gone viral with over 400,000 views.

Last Friday, the marching sounds of young environmentalists could be heard throughout the world as hundreds of thousands of students walked out of class and took to the street to demand that politicians and world leaders take serious measures on the undeniable fact that our climate is in crisis.

Make An Emergency Plan for Your Four-Legged Family Members

By BUST Magazine  In Living  On Mar 18, 2019

Natural disasters—fires, hurricanes, earthquakes—seem to be coming fast and furious these days. I was living in the British Virgin Islands in 2017, when Hurricanes Irma and Maria steamrolled us, destroying animal shelters along with 85 percent of housing. Residents had to evacuate in a hurry, and many pets got left behind. In California, where I live now, during the record-breaking wildfires of 2018, there were dogs, cats, horses, and even llamas needing rescue. When disaster strikes, things move quickly.

On the same day that David Beckham stood in front of a newly unveiled statue of himself in L.A. and called it a dream come true, the United States Women’s National Soccer Team celebrated Women’s History Month by wearing inspirational women’s names on the back of their jerseys during their game against England. While Beckham stated that he hoped his kids would be able to see what he “created” and that it would likely make them proud, the members of the U.S. women’s team chose to honor inspirational women like Sojourner… Read more

By BUST Magazine  In Sex  On Mar 14, 2019

We're bringing you this Q&A from the Sex Files in our March/April 2019 print issue, featuring advice from sexologist Dr. Carol Queen. I can’t find any useful advice on how to best enjoy sex as a really thick-thighed individual. All I seem to hear is missionary, cowgirl, and doggy-style positions, and it’s hard to do doggy style when your partner’s dick is not long enough to compensate for the space your ass takes up. I don’t want to be limited to two positions, so what can I do? –Thick Thighs Save Lives Anything that… Read more

Inside The “Body Neutrality” Movement

By Kate Harveston  In Living  On Mar 14, 2019

It's one of those days. Eyeliner resembling Rocky Raccoon's sister, despite redoing it three times. A forgotten umbrella leading to a damp suit and ruined hair. A day of minor unfortunate events resulting in the drowning of sorrows in a pint of Ben & Jerry's. Everyone has days when they feel horrible about themselves, and guess what? That's OK. At the start of the new millennium, women around the world embraced the body positivity movement. Women across social media posted selfies in gym attire with hashtags of… Read more

The Good, The Bad, And The Importance of SCUM Manifesto

By Zoë Naseef  In Books  On Mar 14, 2019

“Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women. There remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation, and destroy the male sex.” I first bought a copy of SCUM Manifesto at Wooden Shoe, the anarchist bookstore in Philadelphia in 2013. I did not know a lot about it but I read the text (as shown above) and felt instantly understood. From one page to the next… Read more

The World According To Fannie Davis: My Mother’s Life in the Detroit NumbersBy Bridgett M. Davis(Little, Brown and Company) The title of Bridgett M.

Singer-Songwriter Meg Mac On Her New Song, "Something Tells Me"

By Willa Bennett  In Music  On Mar 14, 2019

Meg Mac finds it impossible to effectively describe the sound of her music. Instead of searching for words to illustrate her unique tone, Mac says that she wants her live concerts to speak for themselves. She tells BUST in the middle of her US tour, “Performing live is the best part of it all. Touring and traveling. The best way to gain an insight [into my work] is to come to one of my shows. My live performance offers a much deeper understanding of what I do.” Inspired by like-minded artists such as Sam Cooke, Nina… Read more

This Pour-Over Is A Brew Coup

By BUST Magazine  In DIY  On Mar 13, 2019

This ain’t your bà nội’s instant-coffee; each five-serving set includes ingenious single-serve pour-over filters filled with sustainably sourced organic coffee, plus packets of sweetened condensed milk.

Stealing a horse during the 19th century was a serious crime. Those convicted could be heavily fined, sent to prison, sentenced to hard labor, or even executed. But what if the horse thief in question was only a child? Unsurprisingly, there were many incidents of child horse thieves in Victorian England. Not all were hardened street criminals. Some were simply immature youths tempted by the opportunity of an open stable door and the chance to make an easy few pounds. An 1886 issue of the Dundee Evening Telegraph… Read more

When I was thirteen, I didn’t feel like I fit in. I looked like a pre-makeover Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries. I liked listening to Nirvana and writing in my journal and playing The Sims 2 alone in my room. I was not particularly fond of George W. Bush, yet I went to a Christian school in Texas. I had friends, and I wasn’t made fun of, but I didn’t quite belong. It’s not the most shocking event in the world when your formerly sweet and wide-eyed child falls sullen, entering the emotional mindfuck known as middle… Read more

The Trial of Lizzie Borden: A True StoryBy Cara Robertson(Simon & Schuster) Lizzie Borden took an axe…or did she? The famous rhyme is succinct and damning.

Acoustic guitars strum folk songs while people sing and dance along. Now, imagine that this celebration is also full of Catholic nuns in traditional habits, wearing flower garlands over their black-and-white wimples. The year is 1964, the… Read more
AMANDA PALMERThere Will Be No Intermission(Cooking Vinyl) Amanda Palmer’s crowdfunded new solo album is about life now. Her lyrics refer candidly to motherhood (“A Mother’s Confession”) and the deeper meanings we put on inanimate objects (“The Thing About Things”). Survival is key on this 20-track album, making it hard to get through in one sitting. This is not necessarily a bad thing, though, since pausing to take in “Drowning in the Sound,” a panic-driven climate-change tale, feels necessary. “The Ride,” an… Read more

By BUST Magazine  In Movies  On Mar 08, 2019

Gloria BellCo-written and directed by Sebastián LelioOut March 8 It’s rare to see a movie with a middle-aged woman as its protagonist, much less a joyous, hopeful one who laughs and dances and has hot sex with other middle-aged people—but Gloria Bell is here to fill that gap. Julianne Moore stars as Gloria, a bespectacled office professional who can’t resist a dance floor, a dinner party, or a date with John Turturro’s Arnold, a tender fellow divorcé. That’s not to say that Gloria’s life is all wine, roses, and… Read more
