Bronzers, Birthdays and Makeup Party Tricks

SHOW AND TELL I was at a birthday party with my friends. A gaggle of girls doing what girls do. Catching up on the latest, well, everything. Someone mentions makeup and then everyone shuts up and stares at me. They want answers and they want them now. They want their buck’s biggest bang, the fastest […]

A History of Poverty Porn

If you’ve ever spent hours in traffic cursing the cars ahead of you for slowing down to take a look at the accident ahead, only to find yourself unapologetically doing the same by the time you get your own glimpse of the twisted metal that leaves you to believe “someone must have died in there,” […]

Definitely not the objective. If you […]

Sexual Extortion on the Internet: Blackshades

It’s one of the biggest threats that no one thinks they are vulnerable to until it happens to them: online exploitation.
