I am displeased with the Met Gala’s “Punk: Chaos to Couture” theme, but I’m having a hard time pinpointing why. However, because I’m pretty sure I am not alone on this front, and because we have spotted other blogs putting up photos of Gary Oldman playing Sid Vicious without realizing that it’s Gary Oldman in costume, I think it is probably a good idea to examine why this theme is stupid.
Full disclosure: I do not know much about punk. More

But don’t worry, ladies, we just haven’t gotten to the convenient loophole: if you can convince someone else to spend $2000 on a handbag and give it to you, you are actually a genius. The only trick is you have to fuck ‘em first.
Wealthy dudes are everywhere right now: doing BDSM stuff and making spreadsheets. The field is wide open. This week’s Guide explains how to land one.
Now, we’re going to teach you how to seal the deal and “marry his credulous ass.” Let’s go! More

In said show, she modeled the glove (guess how?) quite eccentrically. More
Do you like having safe sex, but wish there were a way to make it more elitist and and expensive? You’re in luck, because a brand called Naked has decided to sell condoms for $56 a pack, or roughly $5 each. More
