Do you cosplay? If you don’t you’re about to want to. If you do, you’ll probably want to step up your game. Our new BFF Ron Miller just posted many 70′s cosplay pictures, from his personal collection, to io9. They are glorious (and mostly NSFW).

If you’ll excuse us, we have to go track down some wings, scales, and sequined undergarments.

Intro to Female Masking

0

by thepleasurechest

female masking

Last week, The Atlantic ran a really lovely piece about female masking – the practice of a “specific subset of cross-dressing men” who wear rubber masks shaped like women’s faces, often (but not always) because it turns them on.

The article, “What Men Find Behind Female Masks,” focuses primarily on two maskers: Kerry, who makes his living making and selling female masks, and Lisa, who keeps her masking identity completely separate from her “male life.” They each describe their very different family and romantic lives and the extent to which they can be open about their shared kink. One detail that unites their stories is that they have both found a certain amount of comfort and community online, where they can connect with other maskers. Kerry mentions that, before the internet, he thought that he was alone in his interest in masks.

The author, Luke Malone, who also produced Secrets of the Living Dolls, an upcoming film about masking, lets his interviewees speak for themselves and is conscientious about using their preferred pronouns (which is infuriatingly uncommon in mainstream news). The article’s language isn’t perfect, but it’s markedly better than most of what’s out there. We highly recommend giving it a read.

Not sure what to do for your sexy Halloween costume? Let the magic of the internet inspire you.

Let’s begin with the masterpiece pictured above, which we love with a love that is more than love.

This comic features an extremely offbeat list of sexy costumes, including Sexy Inflammatory Email and Sexy First Edition of The Old Man and The Sea.

Alternately, if you liked this Sexy Vulva costume, you’ll be happy to hear that The Daily Show will be auctioning it off for charity.
