• Employees of the Month

    Assistant Editor Angelina is really excited about being an Employee of the Month, mostly because she gets to share a picture of herself next to her alter ego, Cookie Monster.

    Deep Donkey

    If you ever find yourself needing to escape a gang of sea creatures hell-bent on raping you, a whale's vagina is not the best place to hide.

  • Looking at Ben Pier's Photos Is Better Than Eating Burritos or Wanking to Pornhub

    I'm working on a new book, which means I have to go out and shoot a ton of stuff. So this set is a look into that process at its earliest stage.

  • Skinema

    Anal Lessons

    Are there scouts in the porn business like in baseball who travel the minor-league circuit looking for the next big star? If so, I think that’s what I’d like to do when I grow up.

  • The Cute Show Page!

    Wiener Dog Races!

    In August, Montreal held its fifth annual wiener-dog race day. Prizes were awarded for the fastest runner, best costume, and bobbing for wieners—that’s like bobbing for apples but with dogs and cocktail wieners, and it’s as amazing as it sounds.

  • Something Fishy

    Deep in Southwest Alaska lies an abandoned salmon cannery known as Graveyard Point. Every summer fishermen converge on this area. Great fortunes can be earned or lost here, depending on a man's luck. I’ve fished here for the past four years, taking these photos along the way.

  • 2012 Is Bullshit; 2020 Is When We’ll Really Be in Trouble

    Scientist Peter Turchin's work suggests that the next state of upheaval in the US is set to hit in 2020. It’s like that Mayan-apocalypse nonsense, except Peter’s theory is the result of the hard work of a respected scientist rather than some dead Central American dudes.

  • Bush-League Rebels

    I visited a camp in the city of Goma set up to house rebel combatants who had surrendered. The facility was split along ethnic lines, with only a chain-link fence separating Hutu and Tutsi fighters who have been spilling each other’s blood by the bucket for decades.

    Tell Us About Your Tats!

    Every tattoo tells a story and has a story—that’s two stories per tat! So every month we stop someone on the street and ask them to “tell us ’bout them tats!” This month we stopped Gordon Penniweather in Park Slope, and he filled us in on the story behind a few of his many tats…

  • Combover

    Dirty Laundry

    This one’s difficult. Used to be my best friend. My mentor, really. Taught me everything I know about the business. Helped me get my first assistant’s job with Billy Wilder. Then the white dragon set him on fire. And before I knew it, I was his own personal ATM.

  • Atheism - Sexism = Atheism +

    Sometimes being a lady atheist can put you in close proximity with “enlightened” male unbelievers who make rape jokes because, well, there’s no God to punish them. Atheist blogger Jennifer McCreight set up an online forum that fights that kind of ignorance called “Atheism+.”…

  • King Dude Is the King of Dudes

    T.J. Cowgill, the guy who runs the clothing label Actual Pain, also performs music under the name King Dude. He’s the most optimistic, friendly Luciferian we know, a declaration made all the more powerful by his new record, Burning Daylight, which is out this month.

  • Celebrities as Food

  • Seals Are Assholes

    Australian fur seals may sound like stuffed animals with a pulse, but in reality they’re greedy blobs of fat who will eat all of Tasmania’s salmon if the current situation is left unchecked. For these fatties, salmon is “like a cross between a Big Mac and heroin.”

  • Li'l Thinks

    Me Vs. “Me”

    Disassociative identity politics is when anyone decides to cast a Hail Mary vote, maybe on the basis of likability or on some imagined basis of a very different Future Me or something, thus avoiding the participatory requirement of their minitribe in the most essential moment of

  • Shiva’s Wedding

    We’d been in India for a month, and it looked like the wedding wasn't going to happen. The last two times I’d been married my brides had been enthusiastic—they were insistent, even. Now I was getting married for a third time to a woman who didn’t want to marry me by a Tibetan Bud…

  • Keep Your Reputation Tight with Reconstructive Hymen Surgery (or, if You're Poor, Chinese Hymens)

    Whores, do I have some good news for you: Reverting your vagina to its pre-popped state is possible. (Not in the medical sense, of course, but in the by-the-standards-of-the-poorly-educated-and-ultrareligious sense.) In fact, many women around the world are doing it at this very

  • Transmutations in Tijuana

    Eduardo Herrera Gómez is 30 years old, and he is one of 25 “redeemed” homosexuals who have kneeled before Alma Leticia Rosas, a Pentecostal pastor who claims to have the power to exorcize diabolical spirits that, according to her, cause homosexuality “and other evil deviations.”…

  • Zak Loves Mandy

    Last year, porn star Mandy Morbid was diagnosed with Ehlers–Danlos syndrome. But through all of Mandy’s hardships, Zak Smith has never left her side. I talked with the couple about their love and how it exists so gracefully in a world of porn, art, and disease.

  • Advertisers Are Living in Your Brain

    A group of researchers used brain-computer interface devices to extract PINs from people’s minds and published their findings. One of the paper’s authors, told us not to worry about being mindfucked. Instead, this technology will mostly be used for advertising... Great, we feel a…

  • Death of the American Hobo

    If highways and roads are America’s veins, the hundreds of thousands of miles of tracks are like those chakra diagrams in acupuncturists’ offices, the hidden flows of energy that affect the body as a whole.

  • VICE’s Birthday

    Companies and nations have birthdays and natal charts, just like people do. The date VICE was launched—“born”—was a very positive day in the heavens. I am anxious to relay to you the details of VICE’s chart.

  • Records

    When you are in the middle of an itchy cock of a day, are an ass hair away from freaking out, and are making things a whole lot worse for yourself by stewing on shit, just calm your mind for a second, just calm your mind for a second.

  • One in the Oven

    Richard Kern and I drove out to the East Hampton family home of Jemima Kirke, the star of HBO's 'Girls,' to photograph her at eight months pregnant. I also chatted with her about the time we did key bumps together in a bathroom, dating assholes, and being famous.

  • The Forgetful Ghost

    If you claim to like books and reading and don’t know who William T. Vollmann is by now, there is even less hope for this thing we call humanity than what can be gleaned from his prose. Bill sent us this great story about an amnesiac spirit which is perfect for Halloween-time.

  • On the Wagon

    Brain seepage, I think to myself as I watch paramedics tend to a rider who’s been ripped from his saddle. He’s not getting up. It’s the first hour of the first day of the National Championship Chuckwagon Races in Clinton, Arkansas, and I’m just realizing how dangerous this sport…
