Gallery: Vice Editorial Answers The Question, 'What Do Goths Wear To The Gym?'

Back when I was Goth, I wore regular work out clothes to the gym and felt super dorky in them. But of course, it would’ve been even weirder if I’d worn my fishnets and schoolgirl skirts. Or would it have? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could express your subcultural affiliations and exercise your feeble muscles at the same time? This excellent Vice fashion editorial envisions a world where people do just that. (I said people. I realize Lady Gaga already does it.) More »

Vice Tackles Menstruation Fashion With Startling ‘There Will Be Blood’ Photo Shoot

Vice Tackles Menstruation Fashion With Startling 'There Will Be Blood' Photo Shoot

Vice loves the chance to provoke people (occasionally with memorable results) but this time we’re 1) kind of impressed by how far they’ve gone and 2) kind of shocked no one’s done it before*. In “There Will Be Blood,” we have what looks like a typical Vice shoot–a mix of new and vintage fashions, unconventional models, unglamorous locations–and period stains. Yes, the subjects appear to be menstruating.

The editorial was shot by a woman named Emma Arvida Bystrom who–based on a rough Google translation of her blogspot–seems very interested in the representation of women in media, especially beauty ideals (and, it would seem, subverting them). On the one hand, the images show nothing more than biological function and are only shocking because we never see things like this. On the other, some just seem like gory sensationalism. More »

Gallery: These Photos Of Porn Stars Eating Food Are Weirdly Compelling

So Vice published a bunch of photos of porn stars eating yesterday, and they’re a lot more interesting than I thought they would be when I first saw the headline. Rather than showing them doing ridiculous things with their food, most of the photos show their subjects doing a regular thing in a regular way, hence humanizing them to the viewer. A lot of them look fairly normal when not in porn get-ups, like someone you might be friends with. It’s not surprising to me, but it might be to someone who doesn’t know any porn people. More »

Video: New Vice Series Slutever Explores Weird Fetishes, Online Sex Cults, And Other Modern Dating Dilemmas

Last night I attended a press screening of Vice‘s new online TV series Slutever where I got to watch four whole episodes. And what fine episodes they were! Created by sex blogger Karley Sciortino, the show explores love and sex (but mostly sex) from the P.O.V. of Karley’s onscreen persona, who reads to me as a hilarious but unpretentious, faux-naive, open-minded Brooklyn babe-next-door with a kinky streak who is just looking for love.

Terry Richardson Took A Topless Photo Of His Mom

Terry Richardson Took A Topless Photo Of His Mom

Terry Richardson is really controversial. Really, really controversial. Like the world’s most controversial. Anyway, Richardson has a new book out with Morel called “Mom” and if you were expecting some conventional family portraits, you’ve made a grave mistake. If you expected some harshly-lit portraits featuring breasts, cigarettes and the total absence of ideas, then… you win a prize. That prize is me telling you not to click through. Unless you want to see Terry’s mom topless. This is, like, art! More »

Gallery: Oh Look, Uncle Terry Shot Some Fat Chicks For Vice

So everyone’s favorite tampon tea enthusiast shot some photos once again for Vice’s annual photo issue (which just hit the Internet), and perhaps to counter accusations that he’s only into skinny white women, this time he decided to shoot plus-sized, mostly non-white women in his trademark lecherous style as if to say, “don’t worry, bigger girls, I will totally creep on you, too!” Although I will admit to a certain critical bias here, there are actually some things I like about the photos, as well as some things I really, really dislike. Let’s take a look. More »
