Alexa Chung Anxious To Design Cats For Your Nipples

From her collaboration with Madewell to her memoir/scrapbook/style guide to her kinda sorta hangover-inspired makeup line with Eyeko, Alexa’s basically done everything except design her own clothing line.

10 Reasons Women Don’t Care If Men Like Their Clothes

What women think about men and clothes

All fashion-forward women must cease and desist IMMEDIATELY! Douse your closet in gasoline and light a match! We have reason to believe that some men don’t like some of our current fashion trends! 

Here’s the thing, nameless bros: femininity doesn’t exist just to entice men. We don’t spend every waking moment wondering how we can look more bangable. And if you’re not attracted to “too much” eyeshadow (ugh), then the woman wearing it probably isn’t trying to attract you. Check out 10 reasons why women don’t care if guys like their clothes on The Gloss…

On The Very Annoying Girls Who Dabble Like Tourists In The Sex Industry

Sex Work Like Tourism

One encounters a lot of tourists in the sex industry. While many clients are technically tourists–visiting from other cities, states, or countries–I’m talking about working tourists.

Work tourists are young women, usually either college educated or in the process of getting a college education, who hear about how empowering sex work is, and decide to jump on the bandwagon. They’re different from girls who strip or escort their way through college, in that that they don’t really need sex work. Their education is usually paid for by their parents or scholarships, and the income they earn from their erotic labor is usually money to go out with friends or buy designer bags and shoes. Sex work is a game to them, not a livelihood, and certainly not a career choice. Read more on The Gloss…

My Strange First Day Working In An Erotic Massage Parlor

I was not impressed at all with the lack of notice for my first appointment.

I barely had time to rush back to the little basement dressing room, change into shoes that weren’t completely ratty and gross, and gather my nerves before I got the text message from “Marjorie” informing me that my client was at the gate of the apartment complex. When I finally let my client in, though, I was a bit confused by his look of shock.

20 Sexy, Grown-Up Bras For Women With Extra-Small Breasts

small boob bras

If you have smaller breasts, it can be hard to find bras made for your body that aren’t made for preteens, because for some reason the lingerie industry has yet to discover that women’s breasts and bodies come in all sizes. After finding a slew of bras that are available in larger sizes, I got a few emails requesting bras for smaller breasts. I found 20 sexy, grown up bras that are either explicitly made for smaller breasts in the AAA-A range, or are at least available in smaller sizes. See all 20 sexy bras on The Gloss

Photoshop Of Horrors: Even Men Are Photoshopped Into Monsters Sometimes

Photoshop Of Horrors: Even Men Are Photoshopped Into Monsters Sometimes

It’s so common to see women on magazines Photoshopped into some kind of chitinous, spindly, segmented monster that we don’t always look twice unless something truly bizarre is going on (like this model who could destroy Tokyo in her high-low dress, or this picture of Megan Fox Photoshopped to look like another woman entirely). But it’s not just women’s magazines that are going crazy with the office copy of CS Elements, the men are at it as well. Sometimes it takes a really ridiculous monster man to remind us of that. Read more on The Gloss…

Meet The Lovely People Who Support Blackface For Christmas

Nothing says “Merry Christmas” quite like racism!

A popular Facebook page is determined to uphold the longstanding Dutch tradition of wearing blackface for Christmas celebrations. Zwarte Piet, or “Black Pete,” is Santa’s helper in Dutch folklore, and while the character began in the 1700s as a demonic servant, nowadays he’s pretty much just Santa’s bud. Santa’s… black bud. Who’s only ever been portrayed by white people. Read more at The Gloss…

Two Extremely Famous Women Are About To Be Roommates

Because some men just want to watch the world burn, heavy partiers Rihanna and Cara Delevingne have decided it’s a good idea to move in together. An ever-reliable “unnamed source” told Sugar Scape, “The two decided that since they have such similar lifestyles—up all night raving at nightclubs—they’d make perfect roommates.” Yep. That’s definitely the recipe for healthy cohabitation. Read more at The Gloss…

New Breast Implants Contain A Microchip And Now They’re Smarter Than You Are

New Breast Implants Contain A Microchip And Now They’re Smarter Than You Are

Breast implant technology is growing by leaps and bounds (just like those cup sizes, I know you bros hear me), and a company called Establishment Labs has announced its latest innovation: a breast implant with a microchip that would make medical care significantly easier for implant havers.

The Motiva Implant Matrix Ergonomix (name of implant, not a blender as I originally suspected) contains a “radio frequency identification (RFID) microchip that gives doctors and patients easier access to information about the implants, including their serial number, manufacturer name and other data.” They’ll be sold in 28 European countries, although no word yet on when these knockers will be available in the US. Read more on The Gloss…

Male Model Shane Lapper Retires, Relaunches Career As Female Model Chloe Lapper

Male Model Shane Lapper Retires, Relaunches Career As Female Model Chloe Lapper

Scouted in London at the age of 22, handsome redhead Shane Lapper launched a successful career as a male model*. And even though Lapper was employed as an aspirational standard of male beauty, he always felt something wasn’t right: “I think I was about seven when I realized I should have been born a girl. I have five sisters, and I’d watch them all dress up and put on make up and I’d be so jealous.”

As Lapper’s career took off, his suspicions that he was in “the wrong body” only intensified: “It just felt wrong.”

And so, Shane the male model became Chloe. Read more on The Gloss…
