This Is The Most WTF Video I Have Ever Seen (NSFW)

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Enfant Terrible Fashion World Comes To Life

It's undeniable that Jean Paul Gaultier's design career — always innovative, always stunningly avant-garde — is well beyond deserving of an exhibit (really, his works could and should launch a museum).

Freedom’s Just Another Word For Orgasmic Meditation

I’m willing to bet most of you have Monday mornings that go something like this: alarm goes off at 6:30 AM, you hit snooze 3 times before rolling out of bed at 6:49, you shower, get dressed, walk the dog, and then grab a banana or breakfast bar before heading out to fight traffic o…
