Teen Vogue’s Most Disgusting, Explicit Material Of 2019

This is the last thing I want to post from last year…

Although Teen Vogue can no longer be found in grocery stores and newsstands, their polished, obscene brand of smut persists and remains available to any child with internet access.

2019 has been a big year for the publication to become increasingly legitimized as a source of journalism, given the unceasing advance of leftism in politics, but the real meat and potatoes of the online publication is its pornographic sex ed-style how-to guides.

Teen Vogue first caught the eye—and the flame—of Elizabeth Johnston, the Activist Mommy, back in 2017 when they printed a sickening guide to anal sex for tweens and teens.

On Christmas Day this year, we reported that they revived that article, offering their readers an Anal Sex 101 guide. The details are far too graphic to repeat yet again, but suffice it to say that the article literally teaches its 11- to 17-year-old readers all about the mechanics and purported joys of sodomy.

The magazine also closed out the year with a thorough guide, complete with trendy watercolor illustrations, to female anatomy, and a gift guide for readers’ “horniest” friends. Because that’s exactly what teens need, apparently.

Believe it or not, these aren’t the worst stories to come out of this digital rag.

Here’s a round-up of the absolute worst content to come out of Teen Vogue in 2019, proving once again that they’re long overdue for a shut-down:

“When Is It Safe to Send a Partner Nude Photos?”

Some of the most obscenely immoral content to come out of Teen Vogue comes from writer Nona Willis Aronowitz’ column, Down To Find Out, which launched back in May and aims to answer readers’ “biggest questions about sex, dating, relationships, and all the gray areas in between.”

Its inaugural entry, a guide on “safe sexting,” celebrates that sending nude photos to “admirers” is now expected and commonplace. Aronowitz gives an intimate guide on how to execute the best nudes as a form of “radical self-acceptance,” telling readers to “Get very familiar with yourself. Pose in the mirror, caress your silhouette, know your naked angles…”

Imagine your child’s school counselor suggested nude selfies as a means of overcoming body image issues. You’d want their head on a spike, and rightfully so, and yet it is somehow perfectly fine for a complete stranger to offer this advice to children on the internet?! Come on!!

“Why Sex Work Is Real Work”

Back in April, Teen Vogue published a guest op-ed from Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng, a “reproductive justice” advocate working to bring sexual revolution to South Africa. Mofokeng declares that the rights of prostitutes are “women’s rights, health rights, labor rights, and the litmus test for intersectional feminism.”“So, what exactly is sex work,” Mofokeng asks. “Not all sex workers engage in penetrative sex, though, undeniably, that is a big part of sex work. Sex-worker services between consenting adults may include companionship, intimacy, nonsexual role playing, dancing, escorting, and stripping. These roles are often pre-determined, and all parties should be comfortable with them.”

She goes on to urge readers to “support the global demand for sex work decriminalization, and fund evidence and rights-based intersectional programs aimed at sex workers and their clients.”

“Having Sex When You’re Fat: Tips on Positions, Props, and Preparation”

“Yes, fat people have sex — and it’s great,” writes “certified sex educator” Elle Chase, rounding out the inclusivity with an article on the right of overweight people to enjoy sex.

While addressing the issue of body image can be an edifying way to point young girls to their true worth in Christ, not their own beauty, Teen Vogue predictably steers the premise into a smutty, desensitizing ditch.

Along with tips and tricks on pillow placement and sex toys, Chase gives readers a run-down on basic sex positions and their dynamics for overweight couples. “…Don’t let the size of your body stop you from trying any position that floats your boat,” she encourages readers. “You may need to refine the position to better fit your needs, but there’s nothing wrong with that,” she concludes, giving readers the retch-inducing reminder that “We all deserve to f*** our fat hearts out.”

“How to Get an Abortion If You’re a Teen”

While the other articles may be disgusting and immoral, the last item on our list is downright evil. In Aronowitz’ Down To Find Out column, she helped her young readers navigate the dangerous waters of obtaining an abortion without parental knowledge or consent.

“First of all, I’m here to tell you that you have nothing to be ashamed of,” Aronowitz writes. “Accidents can happen even to the most careful among us. And it’s only logical that if teens are mature enough to become parents, they are mature enough to decide whether or not they want to give birth. Having access to abortion should be your right, regardless of your parents’ beliefs.”

Now, to be perfectly clear, no parent should “consent” to their child having an abortion—effectively murdering their own grandchild—to begin with. Parents who do allow or pressure their young daughters to kill their babies are an abomination. That’s all there is to it.

But, thanks to Aronowitz’s guide, children across the nation are equipped to take advantage of laws allowing them to procure an abortion on their own, regardless of their mental capacity as children to understand or consent to the procedure. This is to say nothing of the danger children are placed in when they receive an inherently risky procedure in secret. To put it quite plainly, Aronowitz has blood on her hands for every child who receives an abortion without parental knowledge, suffers, and possibly even dies from complications of the procedure.

This article was even published via SnapChat, a social media app incredibly popular with young people, allowing children to access the information without Teen Vogue showing up in their browser search history for parents to see.

There is no reason on this green earth why any child should have access to material like this. Teen Vogue serves no purpose whatsoever beyond grooming and desensitizing children to obscene sex, prostitution, pornography, and abortion. It is well past time to put an end to this sickening publication.

Cut Back On Alcohol: 9 Tips To Drink A Little Less Alcohol This New Year

New year celebrations mean fun, music, dance, food, drinks It goes without saying that this is that time of the year when alcohol consumption reaches a peak across the world and this is where it gets risky in terms of health. Even people who stay far away from drinking the whole year, booze a bit in the new year’s festive mood. Well, no complaints on people who keep their drinking habit in control and focus on enjoying this time of the year but, for those who often become vulnerable after too much alcohol consumption, here are a few tips which will make you cut a little less on alcohol and enjoy the time with friends and family.

Tips To Drink A Little Less Alcohol

1. Write it down

Set a realistic goal by writing down your guidelines about how many drinks you want to consume in a week or month. This will remind you continuously about your goals and help you cut a little less on your alcohol. Initiating such habits also helps in reducing the risk of alcohol-related health disorders like liver cirrhosis.

2. Drink slowly

Sipping alcohol slowly is one of the best tricks to reduce the amount of alcohol consumption. The best way to do this is by inviting your friends whenever there’s a boozing plan. This will make you talk with them more and drink less. Also, avoid drinking alcohol in an empty stomach.

3. Watch your favorite series

Watching a series with your friends at home is way more cheaper than boozing at a bar with friends. This will make you enjoy peacefully and spend quality time with your friends in the new year.

4. Opt for a pleasant substitute

There are several nonalcoholic drinks in the market like a fruit smoothie, mulled apple juice and lemonade, which makes for a pleasant and soothing substitute for alcohol. Opt for those drinks and slowly try to include it in your new year’s healthy habits.

5. Drink water not alcohol to quench thirst

We may have heard people giving silly reasons to drink alcohol. Always remember that alcohol is not something which will quench your thirst. So, keep all the excuses aside and drink only water if you are thirsty. Also, try to drink a glass of alcohol first followed by a glass of water to cut the alcohol intake into half.

6. Go for low alcoholic drinks

The most favourable and easiest ways to cut down on alcohol is by replacing the high alcoholic drinks by low ones. Opt for drinks like wine and beer as they have less ethanol content or probably select soda-based drinks. However, don’t forget your limit.

7. Make a money log

It’s as simple as it looks. Keep a track of the money you have spent or going to spend in a week or month for alcohol. This will make you think again before you plan to booze the next time and may change your mind to save all those amounts.

8. Avoid triggers

You may have noticed that most of the times when people meet someone or come across certain situations or activities like friends meet or office party, it turns on their boozing mood and causes an urge to drink. To cut on alcohol, avoid such triggers and remember that health is more important than anything.

9. A simple ‘No’ works well

Always saying ‘yes’ to alcohol is not a good thing to do. Sometimes, it’s better to politely say the word ‘no thank you’ when someone offers you a drink and you are in no mood to have it. Remember to say it quickly and firmly without giving them another chance to change your mind.

Best Tricks To Stop Being Single This Winter

Baby, it’s cold outside! And, if you have no one to keep you warm at night, the winter can be a lonely time. If you are looking for a mate, no season is particularly fun to be single but winter is worst of all. With the cold and dreariness in many places and the holidays with all the super helpful questions from your family like, “when are you going to find someone?”, being single all winter is no good.

The good news is, the winter is a great time to get out there and find someone to keep you warm, make your holidays merrier, and be the one you smooch into the new year. Here are the best tricks to stop being single this winter.

Download A Dating/Networking App

It is 2019, soon to be 2020. If you are single and not on a dating app or multiple dating apps, what are you waiting for!? Even if you are on a dating app but it keeps hooking you up with the same old bad news dates, this winter is time to change your luck and download a new dating or networking app.

Cool Things Chicago has a great list of the best dating list of the year. This comprehensive list covers the best dating apps in a number of categories to find a fresh one for you no matter who you are or what you are looking for.

The list includes the best new dating app of 2019, the best casual dating app, the best dating app for females, the best dating app for men seeking men, and the best up-and-coming-dating app of the year. With a new one of these dating tools at your disposal, the winter will be full of really fun dates that will hopefully turn into something more.

Try New Things

There is a saying that goes, “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. This is also a good way to explain why some people stay single for a long period of time.

If you use the same dating apps (see above), go to the same places, engage in the same activities, and hang out with the same people, it is no wonder that your relationship status never changes either. This winter, try some new, indoor activities, where you may meet someone new.

There are plenty of great options in the winter to find an interesting new person to spend time with. You can try skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, or any number of winter sports that will introduce you to a whole new set of potential mates.

A site like MeetUp.com is perfect to find people in your area who are trying to do the same thing. Also, indoor winter activities can be fruitful too, Try a new bar trivia night, hitting the gym, or hanging out in a coffee shop or bookstore.

Be Less… Whatever

In most cases, if you are single this winter, you probably have an idea, at least deep down, as to why. Maybe you are too picky, too clingy, too desperate, too high-maintenance, or you spend too much time at work. Whatever the reason, this winter is a great time to try and work on yourself.

When you try to get better as a person, that comes across and is more attractive to potential partners. While they are notoriously unsuccessful for many, there is something to be said about creating a New Year’s resolution and trying to stick to it.

Whatever it is that you would like to improve about yourself to make yourself a better relationship candidate, January 1, 2020, is a great time to start. Yes, more than half of all resolutions fail but, with a few helpful tips, you can be one of the other half who improves your situation and finds a way to stop being single in the early part of the new year.

Make A List, Check It Twice

Hey, it works for Santa! If you are just dating with no real plan in mind, that may be a big reason why you are still single this winter. You may just need to get more serious about being in a relationship. One of the best ways to start is to make a list of what you are looking for in a partner.

You can include everything from personality to looks to job to family and more. Putting this together will allow you to start looking at people more seriously as a potential partner. When you keep a list like this of what you really want in a person who you settle down with, you will also be less likely to waste time with people who do not fit enough of the criteria on your list.

Just beware, the list should be a living document that changes as you do. It should also just be a set of guidelines, not the absolute rule. You want to look for the person who fits most of the criteria on the list, not hold out for someone who checks every single box.

Don’t Think Of Yourself As Single

The easiest way to stop being “single” right this second is to just stop thinking of yourself that way. Sure, your Aunt Rita will still call you single after a few glasses of wine but who cares? Think about all the freedom you have, all the choices and options, all the money you’ll save on holiday gifts!

In all seriousness though, even with the social stigma that sometimes comes with being single, it does not have to be a bad thing. There are plenty of ways to feel better about your relationship status and celebrate not having a partner this winter. Doing this and finding other, like-minded, uncoupled individuals will make your winter much happier.


It is the season to turn your winter blues into a winter wonderland. By following these tricks, you will have a great chance to stop being single this winter and start living your best life. And the best part is, even if none of these work this winter, you have taken steps to improve your situation and, as they say, Spring is right around the corner.

How To Know If Someone Loves You, According To Their Actions

If your relationship is strong and brimming with love, you may notice a few things your partner does without hesitation, simply because they want to. Barring a busy schedule — and sometimes even then — they may drop everything to help you out, find ways to be supportive, or do little things to make you happy. And apart from wanting to be a good partner, it can also stem from their strong feelings.

“Your partner’s lack of hesitation to do nice and supportive things is one of the biggest signs of love and commitment because that means they are prioritizing you,” Susan Trombetti, matchmaker and CEO of Exclusive Matchmaking, tells Phicklephilly. “This is a sign of a good and loving partner, but it should be a mix of this trait and many other great ones that make a lasting partner.”

It’ll still be important, for example, that you both maintain your individuality, and do things for yourselves. And, of course, there are lots of other ways to show love, and not all of them have to happen immediately. That said, here are some sweet things your partner will likely do without thinking twice, according to experts, if they’re really in love.

1. Help Out During Tough Times


If your partner responds quickly when you need help — even if that just means stepping out of work to call you back — you know you’re a top priority to them, Caroline Madden, PhD, a licensed marriage and family therapist and the author, tells Phicklephilly.

This can pertain to time-sensitive situations where you need help right away, like if your car breaks down and you’re stranded. “The thing is when you really, really love someone you want to be there for them,” Madden says. “You want them to know that you are there to support them.” So don’t be surprised if your partner shows up with jumper cables, before you can even blink.

But they also won’t hesitate to help out in smaller ways, either, including doing little things every day, just to make your life easier.

2. Be Honest

“There are plenty of key things your partner won’t hesitate to do if they’re really in love, one of them being honesty,” Trombetti says. “It goes without saying that honesty is a key factor to a loving relationship, but showing complete transparency and letting your guard down is one of the most showing factors that they really are in love.”

If they do something wrong, they’ll want to tell you right away. And if something’s bothering them, they’ll find a way to bring it up. “It is one of the hardest things for most people to do,” Trombetti says. And yet they’ll make it a priority, because they know how important honesty is to maintaining a strong relationship.

3. See Things From Your Point Of View


If your partner has your best interests at heart, and really cares for you deeply, then they won’t hesitate to see things from your point of view. Or at least try to, even if they disagree.

“Someone who is completely in love with you will allow themselves to take a step back and put your ideas at the forefront,” Trombetti says. They’ll consider what you’re saying not only because your thoughts are important to them, but because they understand being in a loving relationship means both of you need to be fair.

4. Make Time For You

Again, it’s important that you both have your own things going on, in terms of hobbies and interests and friends that don’t revolve around the relationship. And yet, you’ll still want to put each other at the top of your lists.

As Trombetti says, “so many times we see partners putting priorities in front of one another. If you are truly in love with someone, you will never make them a second option!”

This is especially true when it comes to the big stuff, like attending important events together, holiday dinners, birthdays. Your partner won’t hesitate to put those things on their calendar, and make them happen, simply because they’re important to you.

5. Help When You’re Sick


Seeing someone all wrapped up in blankets and surrounded by boogery tissues isn’t always easy, and yet a loving partner won’t hesitate to march on up to your bedside and attempt to help you feel better. Whether it’s bringing you soup, supplying more tissues, or looking for blankets, they’ll be on the case.

As Trombetti says, “If they are willing to stick around and bring you back to health when you are at your weakest, they are undoubtedly there because they care and love you.”

6. Support Your Dreams

Whether it’s your newfound dream of procuring tacos for dinner, or a lifelong dream of going to grad school, your partner will be all about it. “A partner who loves you will always do [their] best to truly support you in pursuing your dreams,” Jonathan Bennett, relationship and dating expert at Double Trust Dating, tells Phicklephilly.

And this is true even if these dreams seem “out there” or unattainable. “Everyone has dreams and aspirations for life,” Bennett says. “Sometimes they might seem far-fetched.” But a loving partner won’t be the person who drags you down or says you can’t do it. Instead, they’ll offer support, and maybe even find ways to help along the way.

7. Compromise


“A partner who loves and respects you will be willing to make adjustments to their own schedules, forgo certain commitments to meet one of yours, and meet you halfway on big important decisions,” Kara Lissy, LCSW, a NYC-based psychotherapist who specializes in relationships and attachment, tells Phicklephilly.

Basically, they’ll be willing to compromise. “The key here is that they see you as an ally in decision making rather than someone with whom they need to compete,” she says. And that makes it a lot easier for them to open up and be fair.

8. Push You To Be Your Best

“A partner who is in love will always see the best in you and won’t settle for you to see anything less than that in yourself,” Lissy says. This is why they support you in your dreams (both big and small). But also while they’ll encourage you to do little things on a daily basis, in order to feel good.

“This may show up in the form of them challenging an unhealthy or self-destructive habit of yours, or helping you set up a plan to achieve one of your long-term career goals,” Lissy says. Again, it’s all about wanting to offer support.

9. Share Their Feelings


One way to know your partner loves you, is if they have a strong desire to open up and share their feelings. After all, “intimacy is a key component of deep, fulfilling romantic love,” Lissy says. “Your partner won’t hesitate to be emotionally intimate with you and share important details about how they are feeling when they’re in love with you.”

10. Be Reliable

A loving partner won’t show up and do things simply because you asked them to, but because they want to, and that can result in them being extremely reliable. They won’t forget important dates, or leave you hanging — and if something comes up and they do, they make up for it.

“When we know with certainty that we can rely on someone, it enables us to feel safe and secure,” Lissy says. “Your partner will show up when they say they’re going to show up and follow through on important commitments to you, which shows love and respect.”

11. Hang Out With Family


If you and your partner enjoy hanging out with family, that’s great. But not everyone’s guaranteed to like, or even get along, with their family, Bennett says. But a loving partner will grin and bear it, and be as supportive as possible.

For example, they won’t leave you hanging when it comes to attending awkward get-togethers or holiday parties, and they’ll be there if you need to vent about something your parents said. Of course, there’s no need for anyone to suffer through toxic family situations, just to be a good partner. But you might notice yours is down to do whatever they can to help.

These are just a few of the things a loving partner won’t hesitate to do. It shows not only how much they want to offer support, but how focused they are on contributing to the overall happiness of your relationship.

Sun Stories: Eileen – Chapter 1 – My Hire

Happy New Year!

A girl calls the salon and asks if we need help. We’re hitting our busy season and it’s getting nuts in here by myself. I’ve been fucked for the most part. We’ve had little inquiries and I’m worried. I’m getting run over every night here. We’re making money, but I have to keep the level of service up. I need another person here.

If someone walks in and has never tanned before or it’s simply a new client that’s going away and need to ‘get a base’ I have to spend time with them.

If 5 people walk in behind them I’m screwed. I have a waiting room full of people wanting to get into beds and I’ve got people leaving.

I can’t be in three places at the same time. People are signing up, people are waiting, people are leaving, beds need to be cleaned, what’s going on with the laundry? It gets crazy in here.

I tell her we do need help and that she should come in. She tells me she’ll stop in tonight. I literally forget about it when I hang up because I’m so busy.

It’s hard to find talent for the salon. You get what you pay for. But that’s just part of this business. I’ve learned this in the 2 years I’ve been here.

I hung a shitty Help Wanted sign on the end of the counter. It got wrinkled and mauled by all of the customers that lean on the counter.

We have this cool rich dude that comes in and tells me the sign looks like it was written by Michael J Fox. I let him go on our system and make a better sign. He makes two and hangs one on the wall behind me. I appreciate that and he’s right.

But still.. very little bites. I work so much that people just think I need a day off.

But that call came in. I forgot her.

I’m blazing through clients and it’s busy. I’m getting run over.

I put a girl in a sunbed and there is a girl behind her. I speak:

“Last name?”

I need to keep them moving.

“I called and I’m here about the job.”

She looks 24. Attractive. Fit. Dark hair, fair skin, glasses and dressed to impressed.

I love her.

We’ve had so much shit come through here and Eileen is like a breath of fresh air. She almost seems too good to true.

Beautiful girl. Firm handshake. I can sense professionalism.

Gotta have her. I can feel it. My hire.

I immediately send texts to my partner.

“Where are the applications? I have a live one I really want. She seems amazing!”

Achilles as awesome as always literally signs on to the system from home and prints off the application.

I’m amazed and love him for this, because he can feel my earnest on this applicant. Which also shows he trusts my judgement.

Eileen is dressed professionally and I am floored by my good fortune this late in the game. I can just tell. Criminal Justice major at Drexel. This is a serious girl. I already adore her.

She’s from Missouri. We’ll get to that. She can kill it for us during our busy season and then go home for the summer and work as a hostess at Olive Garden. She started at 8 bucks and is now at $9.70 and hour. You don’t get that kind of raise as a teenager in a year.

This is a quality girl. I can see we here at the salon have hit tanning gold.

I like her for this job and so I’m impressed with her.

I tell her I’ll text her if she has the gig and she’s cool with that.

I didn’t even know about Amelia at the time. I thought I would have my new magic girl all week but that was still in question.

I still needed to find out what the hell was going on. Quite suddenly we went from nothing to two girls.
