I promise you this site will boggle your mind. Hands down the most insane condoms I have ever seen in my life. Hand painted? Lights? Music? What would you do if someone rolled one of these on when you were getting hot and heavy? First off you would have to put a condom on the condom to keep from getting paint chips all up in you. The lights and sound only go off when the tip is touched. Wouldn't the music get all muffled? And this of course leaves the question, ... Read More

The rad art of Maya Hayuk!

BY Dawn in General |

Maya Hayuk is a Brooklyn based muralist, photographer, painter, music video creator and all around bad-ass. I'd seen her impressive murals before, but had no idea that her art was so expansive until Alison F. sent me this fascinating/funny/inspiring video interview she did with Etsy. Wth a heavy focus on environmental art, Maya's work reflects a collaboration between architecture, and the surrounding community that her art lives in. Not only is Maya a popular ... Read More

Help At Your Cervix!

BY Dawn in General |

At Your Cervix is a documentary film in progress exploring the connection between pelvic exams and the reality that most women experience them as painful and disempowering. The film breaks the silence around the unethical methods used by medical schools to teach students how to perform pelvic exams; the most egregious being on unconsenting, anesthetized women. The filmmakers need funds to finish this film, and you can help!!! At Your Cervix is currently one of ... Read More

Spray on Condoms!?

BY Laurie in General |

Stop me if you've heard this one before. 'I can't find a condom that fits me...so lets just not worry about it.' In an effort to give every dude a snug fit, German sex- ed teacher Jan Vinzenz Krause is working on developing a spray on condom. 'The prototype, which began testing last year, consists of a hard plastic tube with nozzles that spray liquid latex from all directions, much like the water jets in the tunnel of a car wash.' Unfortunately the prototype is ... Read More

The Tiddy Bear!!!

BY Dawn in General |

About a year ago I saw this infomercial and was confused, intrigued, but also completely amused. I had forgotten about it until recently when former 'tern, Alison F. reminded me of it's weirdness. But although this commercial seems strange, it is not a joke! For too many years, drivers and passengers have suffered from the stiffness of their seat belts cutting into their shoulders. This has been a serious problem, and thank goodness somebody has finally come up ... Read More

15-Year Party Wrap Up!

BY Dawn in General |

Thank you to everyone who joined BUST in blowing out the birthday candles with us at our 15-Year Anniversary Party! I can't explain the venue, Spiegelworld, as anything but breath-taking. With a full180 degree  view of Manhattan and Brooklyn, the waterfront setting that was complete with hammocks, cabanas, an outdoor dance floor, and 3 circus tents (!!!) was absolutely unbelievable.JD Samson (MEN/Le Tigre) got things started right on the turntables. As ... Read More

Apocalipstix!

BY Sarah J. in General |

The Apocalipstix will rock you. A slam-bam postapocalyptic action-hero fantasy for girls, one part Tank Girl and one part Josie and the Pussycats, it's the story of a band who manages to survive World War III and sets off on the road trip to end all road trips in search of the necessities of life--food, shelter, and roaring crowds. Writer Ray Fawkes neatly turns rock'n'roll stereotypes on their heads, giving the girls the phallic symbols--guitars and guns--and ... Read More
