We know it's been a hard week. Families are complicated! Your dad keeps nagging you about the election. Your older sister doesn't stop talking about where she is vacationing with her new boyfriend. Your step-grandma won't let go about how the mashed potatoes came out mushier than last year.
If you manage to escape and get a moment to yourself this weekend, spend it exploring another complicated world—sex. We're pretty sure you've always been intrigued about how dangerous the BDSM community really gets, and if you think you've experienced every version of porn imaginable, you probably haven't. Virtual reality porn is only just beginning!
So turn off the lights in your childhood bedroom, put in your headphones, and catch up on some of our favorite VICE docs about kinky sex. And remember, you can always keep getting off on video.vice.com.
