Sex Tips From History: Learn A Variety Of Sex Positions While Learning The Cyrillic Alphabet

Sex Tips From History: Learn A Variety Of Sex Positions While Learning The Cyrillic Alphabet

Who says people in the Soviet Union didn’t know how to have fun? To look at this dirty alphabet book, they did nothing but suck and fuck in various configurations for the better part of the 20th century. Created in 1931 by popular Soviet state artist Sergei Dmitrievich Merkurov (who also sculpted numerous monuments to Joseph Stalin), this erotic ABC primer was meant to increase literacy rates in the adult population the only way Merkurov knew how: with a good old, fashioned, multi-person orgy.

Unlike all those boring children’s alphabets made of plants and animals, this alphabet is made out of fit young specimens of Soviet manhood putting communist babies in ladies’ tummies and sometimes their mouths, too. And as you can see, they’re not afraid to go down on women (modern!), or bring the occasional mythical creature into the mix (super modern!). Basically, there’s a lot we can learn from the Soviet Union, and you know I’m not talking about how to create a communist utopia. Enjoy. More »

Kate Upton Has A Russian ‘Mail Order Bride’ Doppelgänger

Kate Upton Has A Russian 'Mail Order Bride' Doppelgänger

However, if there is anybody I think would be an A+ grade to be the doppelgänger of, it’s probably somebody along the lines of Kate Upton. Why? Because chiquita has a lovely hair, great teeth, a bizarrely good dancing style and apparently a forcefield inside of her skin to protect all her insides from freezing in Antarctica. Fortunately for Upton’s look alike, she’s already used to the bitter cold of another part of the world: Russia. More »

Gallery: Katie Holmes Gets Photoshopped To Hell And Back In Harper's Bazaar Russia

Katie Holmes-like figure is on the October cover of Harper’s Bazaar Russia, but I’m not convinced they didn’t just paint a picture of Katie Holmes because they couldn’t get the real one for a photoshoot. But whether or not they started with real photos of her, the level of Photoshop abuse is truly surreal. They painted fake shadows all over the place and make her skin look like plastic, while somehow also managing to make her look older in the process. If I were Katie Holmes, I’d be pissed! More »

Gallery: Check Out These Amazing Soviet Teen Glamor Shots From The '80s

The wonderful blog English Russia recently scanned in some photos from the Soviet era teen magazine “Sverstnitsa,” which the blog translates to “peer girl.” They’re all taken from issues that came out in 1989, and constitute a wonderful snapshot of how Soviet teens used to dress when they wanted to look fancy. Try as they might, those mean communist leaders could not keep out the influence of the west, as you can see from the girls’ New Wave haircuts, stone washed denim, and shiny, shiny everything. I also appreciate their pin-up poses. More »

A couple months ago, Cindy Crawford‘s 10-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber snagged a Versace campaign and we pondered whether or not she was too young. Soon after, Gisele Bundchen‘s niece launched a clothing collection and started modeling.
