True Story: I Can Be A Kinky Feminist & A Messy Human Being

A few years ago .... Today, in 2012, I avoid him as much as I can. But my friend (?) Richard used to joke (?) that I only called him when I broke up with my boyfriends. Kinda true, kinda false. Regardless — a few years ago — I don't even call him this time,…

The Dark Side Of Playing Doggie Dress Up

Sure, you could dress your pooch up in a fluffy pink coat or a sweater, but the folks at Vice went to a much more sinister place: goggie S&M gear. Enter the chains, whips and leather -- these pups are ready for a biker fight. Or a Depeche Mode concert, whatever your pleasure. [Vice]…

In 2010, Bordello Chic Is The New Home Decor Trend

The LA Times takes a closer look at "bordello chic," the latest trend in interior design that is sexing up businesses and nightclubs on the Left Coast. At club Voyeur, the chairs are all SM-themed, with lace-up corsets, leather straps, and restraint harnesses. Taking a nod from old-fashioned men's clubs and bordellos, the look i…

Mobile Domination For The Submissive On The Go

I can't speak with great expertise as to exactly what's going on here because I don't speak Deutsch, but what we appear to have is a "mobile dominatrix" who will come abuse interested submissives wherever they are. Basically, this German dominatrix rides around in a van that contains a portable dungeon. She shows up where…

What’s Madonna’s Sexiest Video?

Paging all Madonnaphiles! The Daily Beast has gone through the trouble of rounding up the "9 Sexiest Madonna Videos" of all time. Some of their picks are spot-on -- "Like a Virgin," "Justify My Love," "Like a Prayer." But other choices are downright weird -- "Ray of Light" never struck me as particularly sexy. The…

A Mask That’ll Bring Out Your Inner Sex Kitten

We've seen something like these kooky masks before. Designer Ilya Fleet created a similar series for sex boutique Coco de Mer. But shoe designer Minna Parikka's line of masks is a little less fetishistic, and they're made out of deconstructed and repurposed shoes. While Parikka typically designs pretty-in-pink, retro-style footwear, these colorful, playful masks are…

They’re Bringing Kinky Back

From the runway to the pages of magazines, fashion is experiencing a resurgence of SM-inspired style. Calvin Klein handcuffs? Check. Whip-wielding models? You bet.
