Playboy is only as woke as its readers

Playboy has been forced to consider its future in the midst of the #MeToo movement and immense criticism. Enter: the rebranding of Playboy.

It’s a classic coming-of-age scene: a young teenage boy, on the cusp of puberty, jacking off to a centerfold of Farrah Fawcett. Maybe his mom walks in and he rushes to cover up, but the moment has already happened: a sexual awakening as a boy turns into a man. And, of course, it’s sponsored by P...

Teachers are our unsung heroes

Teachers are incredibly vital and important to our education journey. Their acts of selflessness, care, and empathy haven’t gone unnoticed. It truly speaks to how valuable and essential teachers are, even when the world isn’t experiencing COVID-19.

As a college student about to wrap up my junior year this week, it’s easy for me to get lost in the rhythm of too-close deadlines, unhealthy caffeine consumption, and late nights defined solely by procrastination.

Being the quarantine cutie

In quarantine, there are no hoes or sluts—at least not in the traditional sense.

Most of the people I know—myself included—are very lucky that one of the biggest quarantine woes they have is their horniness. Pre-pandemic, we could easily satisfy our desires by meeting up with a Tinder match, making eyes at that hottie from across the bar, or messaging a hookup buddy. Now, in...

We recommend printing these pages out so you can use good old-fashioned scissors and glue to do some arts and crafts. When you're done, send a photo or a scan of your artwork to [email protected]. Happy collaging! 🎨✨

The kit is inspired by beautiful spring weather and the summer days that, due to the pandemic, we may not be able to enjoy as fully as we would otherwise. It contains elements that express both celebration and yearning. Summer is a time of year I always look forward to, but I know it looks different...

Collage kit: Black joy

Don’t forget that Black joy matters too.

I think in a time like this, when we’re witnessing so much violence against the Black community, it’s important to also circulate positive Black images. In this collage kit, I wanted to replicate the same vibrancy I see in the Black art I consume, in addition to the same carefree feeling I see i...

Decolonizing feminism: redefining sex work in non-Western terms

“Sex work” is a very loaded phrase, and the problem begins with its use as an umbrella term.

Last year, an organization at the University of the Philippines organized a talk on why sex work is work, causing a stir of discourse on Twitter. “The exploitation and objectification of women is never empowering,” said one user. The organization was criticized for its lack of intersectionalit...

Sexual liberation is an important aspect of sexual expression in general, which applies to dirty talk.

There’s no space for shame or embarrassment in sex. We’re naked, as exposed as we can be. Most of the time, the only person finding your sex attempts cringey rather than smoking hot is you—not the person you’re f**king. We sometimes judge each other’s sexual preferences, pretending like we...

The case for reality TV: coping with the new normal

The once quixotic world presented in reality TV might actually help us do exactly what’s needed: to alter our mindsets, to embrace the unknown, and to reimagine our definition of normal.

Before quarantine, I’d restrained myself from the inexplicable allure of reality TV shows; I’d seen enough Cody Ko reactions to Love Island to get the picture: reality dating shows are ridiculously fabricated, overly dramatic, and a waste of time. But after binging a variety of Netflix’s newes...

A beginner’s guide to shopping for vintage clothing

The value of collecting vintage clothing lies with the consumer, but there are obvious upsides.

If art is anything, it’s an artifact. Whether consumers choose to wear vintage clothing or preserve it to appreciate in value over time, they capture cycles of past lives and identities, ghosts of cultural history, rapid changes and phases in both the world and the wearer.

Tearot Time with T'Shaymae (Reading

Everyone has an epiphany or goes through a period or series of enlightenment. But despite going through the journey itself, there’s still work to be continued after. Things left unsaid and unfinished business prevent the growth that needs to happen to continue the flow of evolvement. Spirit says that the work never stops there or just anywhere, so continue to allow yourself to grow, release what no longer serves you so then you may truly heal and move forward.

Be a badass woman this decade, and don’t let a guy discount your feelings or standards.

He’s being an asshole—the guy you’re talking to or maybe casually dating. You spend time telling your best friend about it, and giving all the reasons you think he may be acting this way. Except for one: maybe he’s just an asshole.

Wow! It’s so unique that you watch The Bachelor with your sisters every Monday. I love that for you! It’s literally so special that you share that kind of bond with your sisters. Like, I’ve really been looking for that community of people throughout college, and I think that this house will he...

Writing through insecurity, fake positivity, and emotional reckoning

"My life consists of me making mistakes and sometimes learning from them and other times making the same mistake over and over again like clockwork."

Lately, writing feels like pulling teeth. I try to take a concept I think is interesting and funny and relatable and turn it into an essay, and I write two sentences before deciding I don’t like how it sounds or getting frustrated because it isn’t headed in a clear direction, and I scrap it.

Eyelash extensions are the toxic ex-boyfriend I pay for

For me, the eyelashes became an addiction, something I relied on so I could feel pretty. And none of the happiness they brought me could hide that they were toxic.

I’d flirted with them for months. For the longest time, people had told me to go for them, raving about how cute we’d look together and how my life would be changed forever. In a way, it did: we ended up going to prom together, vacationing in Asia, and making countless memories captured by plent...

Maybe the most intimate part of hookups is what comes after

Casual sex is casual in that there are no expectations of monogamy or romance, sure—but still, there’s a level of vulnerability that feels anything but.

If there’s one thing I’ve gathered about casual sex, it’s that it’s supposed to be casual. No commitment, no serious feelings, none of the overthinking or attachment that come with actual relationships. And yet despite this supposed standard of transactional pleasure, I’ve heard countless ...

Tearot Time with TShaymae

This is a reading for the month of July 2020. During this QuaranTEA, I’ve been preaching to the choir and to my peers about how everyone in isolation, social distancing, staying at home is going to start dealing with their darkest selves, their inner demons, their shadows that have been following them and been a part of them that they’ve yet to confront. Why? Because BALANCE is needed. And I’m not just telling y’all, cause your homegirl here is going through it too. The balance needs to happen in order to be sustainable within ourselves and any situations, problems and hardships that may come our way. With embracing those oppositions, we also release what has held us back for so long. Think about Yin & Ying, you can’t be all light or all dark. There has to be equality among them in order to live peacefully and in harmony.

How dating violence impacted my sexuality

I found myself unable to truly connect to anyone else romantically.

As a high school student, it seemed that after a certain period of time being in a romantic relationship, sex was the status quo. I was open to losing my virginity, especially if and when the time felt right. And then I grew to love the first boy I ever really dated.
