“It’s been a lot of explaining,” Vanessa Omoregie told The Guardian when her camgirlsproject first got picked up. “Explaining that I’m not stealing pictures or pulling pictures of girls off random sites. These are real girls who want to contribute to what the project discusses.” The submission project paired famous paintings of nude muses — Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus (1486), Amedeo […]

I’m 100% comfortable with this headline. I would have also been comfortable with “Look at Lady Gaga’s Naked Nude Boobs and Other Nude Nakedness and Give Marina Abramović Some Money” and also “Lady Gaga and Marina Abramović Make Hot Mutual Masturbation Video.” Last week at a three-day retreat in upstate New York, Marina instructed Lady Gaga in […]

And now, by way of Germany, here’s a gaggle of naked dudes vandalizing trains in a most ridiculous fashion — by hosing it (and themselves) in paint and rubbing themselves merrily about the surface of train car, after train car, after train car.
