Once again, the Internets really DO work! Two-and-a-half weeks ago, we told you about a new app called Peek that tried to make sending dirty pics to the objects of your affection safer. The original idea: You take a naughty picture with your phone via Peek, send it out and the recipient can only view the picture once, through a [...]

A reader just tipped us off to this¬†99 cent app called Peek: it lets you take naughty pictures of yourself and send them to the object of your affection with a little less risk. The recipient can only view the picture¬†once, through a small circular moveable “keyhole”, for only 30 seconds before it disappears (from [...]

There are many reasons¬†not¬†to read women’s magazines. One of the biggies? All the retouched photos. The genetic mutants we call models and celebrities can beat the shit out your average Jane’s self image, but Photoshop can chop it up with chainsaw. This¬†before and after cover of Red Book from a few years ago¬†thanks to Jezebel.com [...]

We once did a photo shoot for¬†The Sun, that super trashy but widely popular newspaper in the UK (you know, the one with the “Page 3 girl”). We were promoting the British edition of our book,¬†The Big Bang. We were young and naive, the photographer was old and pushy, and as he gradually encouraged us [...]

My Body Gallery is a new online photo collecting project with this goal: “to help women objectively see what we look like, break the pact of silence around ‘weight’ and come to some acceptance that we are all beautiful.” The idea is that all sorts of real women upload full-body images of themselves (their faces [...]

Last week it was Awesome People Hanging Out Together; this week it’s My Daguerreotype Boyfriend (“Where Early Photography Meets Extreme Hotness”), which, officially or not, seems to be a subset of Fuck Yeah Victorians. So if your “type” existed in the wrong century or you had a really hot great grandpa, then this site is [...]
